We’re a group of moms, dads, aunts and uncles, and we’re building the kind of technology we want to share with our own families.
Helping unlock the positive power of tech
There's no denying it: technology touches almost every part of our lives today. Now more than ever, we're relying on tech to work, learn, connect and unwind—and our kids are spending more and more time with digital devices.
Screen time is now a major part of growing up—but parents still struggle to find high-quality, kid-friendly platforms they can trust. Kinzoo is here to change that. Our founder is a father who was searching for better solutions for his own children, and every day, we work hard to unlock technology’s potential for kids everywhere.
We’re flipping the script on screen time and building apps from the ground up for children and parents. We believe in a future where kids are empowered by the tech we put in their hands, using it to keep up with loved ones, flex their creative muscles and cultivate new passions—all while surrounded by those who matter most.
Every day, we work to unlock the vast potential of technology for children and build experiences that promote connection, creativity and cultivation.
We look to our company values to guide every decision—both big and small.
Safety is the foundation for all our products, and we create innovative features designed to protect kids online.
Because we're creating products for kids, we prioritize safe, ethical design, and we never compromise on that for the sake of faster returns.
We test and retest our products with real people, and regularly ask for feedback so we can better serve our community.
We believe it should be easy to understand technology, and we explain how ours works in order to empower our users.
Building better tech takes a village
We collaborate with bright leaders from diverse disciplines who believe in our vision. Our products and business are strengthened by input from our board of experts in kid-tech, media and safety.
