Osmo Little Geniuse

Following its proliferation into more than 30,000 U.S. elementary school classrooms of kids ages 5 to 12, Osmo is bringing digital and hands-on play to preschoolers with the launch the Osmo Little Genius Starter Kit.  The system for kids ages 3 to 5 nurtures core developmental skills, including vocabulary, letters, emotions, problem-solving, and building creative confidence.

Created in partnership with Marbotic, a European technology company that specializes in experiences for early learners, Osmo Little Genius combines Friedrich Froebel’s and Maria Montessori’s manipulatives of proven hands-on play with advanced computer vision for highly engaging experiences. 

“On the heels of being acquired by BYJU’s, we focused on filling a critical gap in the market,” says Pramod Sharma, co-founder of Osmo. “Since the release of our original Genius Kit, we’ve received many inquiries from parents asking if we had something similar for their younger child, … so we went to work.”

The Osmo Little Genius Starter Kit is available for preorder on Amazon and will be available for preorder through additional select retailers in the weeks ahead.
