At less than £1/month and with a free 7-day trial, we hope to make our pocket-sized science lab an easy option for parents looking for the best for their kids.”
Tinybop’s award-winning constellation of apps currently consists of two growing series available on iOS, The Explorer’s Library and Digital Toys. The Explorer’s Library comprises nine inspirational and interactive sandbox apps for kids, and is designed to teach STEM fundamentals and foster lifelong learning about the world.

The apps in this series — The Robot Factory, The Monsters, The Everything Machine, The Infinite Arcade, and Me — encourage kids to build their own worlds and stories.
