Our mission is to empower kids to think creatively with technology.

We started with a simple idea. How can we blur the line between toys and tools? Can we make a robot that encourages kids to customize not only how it looks and sounds, but how it works? And so we created the Little Robot Friends - a coding companion for curious minds.

Our co-founders understand the expectations of busy parents raising kids in the smartphone generation.

Meet Ann & Mark - the wife & husband duo behind Little Robot Friends. “In addition to us running a company together, we also run a family together! Together we’ve spent hours thinking of ways to encourage our child’s creativity and learning through play and exploration. Little Robot Friends is the result of that - a robot character that grows with kids.”

We’ve been making education awesome for over 10 years.

Before launching Little Robot Friends, Ann & Mark spent their time designing and building museum and science center exhibits around the world. Their expertise is in taking challenging subjects and making them fun & engaging for kids. When kids discover for themselves why things are awesome, they can propel their own excitement and imagination. Check out their work at Aesthetec Studio.
