Learning through play? We’re all for it! Parenting and keeping kids entertained is not a one-size fits all. What works for others, may or may not work for you. Trust me, I have gone over this topic over and over again. I have beaten myself for it too and there’s no winning. Being a parent also means, you do what is best for you and your family. This also applies to how you handle their learning and entertainment.
For our son, a combination of screen-free activities and interactive screen-time is what works best. For that reason, we have always been looking for ways to improve the quality of his screen engagement. That’s what we love about Osmo. It takes a simple touch-screen experience and transforms it to interactive learning with hands on play.

As a parent, I like Osmo a lot. But after seeing how my son engages with their products … instantly, I was a fan. I love them. My son loves them. The latest addition in our collection is the Little Genius Costume Pieces (Stories & Costume Party). My son loves transforming his character while going on a grand adventure. His all-time favorite is the astronaut outfit.
If you had Osmo prior to this, you can purchase this add-on game for only $25! As of posting, it is currently on sale for a whopping $17.50 on the Osmo website. This game works for the standalone Stories app, while the Costume Party that can be found inside the Osmo World app.
