Four years ago, we embarked on a daring mission: to establish a counter-trend away from the screens and virtual realities that dominate our children’s lives. As young parents, the founders of Sparkup felt a growing need to take kids out of these digital realms and help them rediscover the non-digital world around them, both independently and together with their families. Working with talented engineers, programmers and designers, the Sparkup team is creating fun and educational gizmos to “sparkup” playtime and story time!
Sparkup is a privately-held company based in Israel. It is managed by young parents who understand first-hand the challenges facing children’s reading and playtime experiences in a digital era. The company’s investors and management team are passionate about enhancing the lives of children and their families.
The company’s inaugural product, the Sparkup Magical Book Reader, enables kids to interact with real printed books as they stay connected with family and friends while learning – whether in the same room or across the globe. Patent protection for the
Sparkup’s technology and design is currently pending in the United States, Europe and China.
