Flintobox – Early Learning Tool – Chennai
Educational play based activity box for kids
Crafted by montessori experts and child psychologists
The story of Flintobox is that of a young parent striving to find the best way to nurture the child’s creativity
and curiosity, while keeping up with his/her own busy life. The first 6 years of a child’s life is the most important phase where 90% of the development of the brain occurs. Co-founder Vijay was concerned that his 7-year old son was spending a disproportionate amount of time on TV & mobile phones. He wanted his son to engage in activities that could aid with this development.
The Founders Arunprasad Durairaj, Vijaybabu Gandhi and Shreenidhi SP are friends, who believe in fun filled education for the children. Their team consists of 75+ members from game designers to pedagogy experts! The first prototype was tested with 60+ parents and children. Both parents and children loved the freshness of the idea and quality of the product. This encouraged the team to take a plunge to build Flintobox as a company.
Arun strongly believes that the existing early education system for children needs an upgrade and is passionate about bringing it about himself. With his strong educational background and professional experience he is on a mission to make Flintobox the best educational tool for kids. Vijay’s passion for early learning and technology background provides Flinto the edge that makes it fun and educational for children. He is the architect for Flintobox’s e-commerce platform and envisages the technology to bring alive the character Flinto on mobile apps and games.
Shreenidhi is tech graduate with experience and passion for start-ups and technology. He is instrumental in building a robust and scalable subscription commerce platform at Flinto, and provides technical & architectural leadership for the product team on web and mobile application.
The trio feel as there is very less awareness about the concept and the product, the foremost challenge is in educating customers on the need for early learning tools and why a child needs to be engaged before the age of 8. The product is aimed at children between the age group of 2-12 years.
The Program Model:
In these busy days with nuclear families, parents don’t have the time to ensure that their child is engaged effectively. And this constraint makes children resort to the easy way of watching TV. Flintobox solves this problem for parents by providing a perfect fun discovery box that inspires children to explore and feed their curiosity for new things every month. Parents will receive, right at their doorstep, a carefully curated and designed set of activities based on fresh themes every month.
Flintobox provides monthly activity kits with a new theme every month. Each box is packed with 3-7 play-based and hands-on activities which contain the following four segments:
CREATE, EXPLORE, PLAY and READ
Examples for Flintobox themes:
Subscription activity kits for 2 to 3 years
· Amazing Animals
· Automobile Adventure
· Undersea Adventure
Subscription activity kits for 3 to 4 years
· Jungle Adventurer
· Little Transporter
· Jr. Marine Scientist
