Interactive technology creates a unique experience

Through augmented reality, Kinoo transforms traditional screen time into rich, hands-on quality family time. Play games together as if you’re all in the same room.


Making magic, made easy

Get creative and make a pizza together. Or whip up a batch of cookies. Kinoo helps you feel like you’re in the kitchen together. Family time is any time with Kinoo.

Explore Together

Be together, even when you're far apart

Read stories together, or blast off to the Moon! Kinoo’s team of early childhood development experts have created experiences for young children to enjoy with family members, even if they’re far away.


Transform virtual visits into a virtual adventure

The Kinoo Controller takes the fun to a whole new level with AR/AI technology that transforms the magical wand into a paintbrush, a saw, a baseball bat, a fishing pole and so much more.

Kinoo is a video chat app that’s so much more than just video chat. Developed by a team of early childhood social and emotional learning experts, Kinoo reimagines the way families interact online with two-way activities and guidance from in app characters to help facilitate intergenerational communication between grandkids and grandparents (or aunts, uncles... the whole family!).
