Company description

Karisma Kidz is an educational brand that helps children to identify and manage their emotions!  We’re tipped to be the next 'Mind Candy', but for moods! Happiness is constantly being measured, and every parent wants their children to be happy, yet we're living in stressful times and stress in pre teens is at the highest level since records began! At Karisma Kidz we provide a training ground for little superheroes!  We skew ages 3-9 with a core target market of 4-6 year olds. That's a potential 4.3 million UK Superheroes and we intend to grow globally over time.Our core product is a digital platform that engages children and links them with their parents and teachers in a fun, positive way, while teaching them essential emotional intelligence skills as they play. Children are empowered, behave better and parents are less stressed too...

Competitive advantage

Our online game is specially designed to enhance emotional intelligence and enable children to explore, identify and manage their emotions. 

Social and Emotional learning is a growing market.  The founder of EA sports launched If we can.. A social and emotional learning game in the US in Feb 14. This is specifically geared to the US curriculum and an older target age group. We have a strong first mover advantage in an untapped market for the age group we are targeting with strong attraction and retention rates already.

Our platform is designed for children aged 3-9 with a core market of 4-6. Safety is paramount and children will have limited social networking and interactivity, with the little there is being supervised and reported.

Online platforms providing virtual worlds for pre-school children are prevalent, but the understanding of how children develop emotional skills and the experience of the team behind the Karisma Kidz is almost impossible to copy.

We have 2 preload deals in place and have 3 registered trademarks, copyright for all our characters and areas and have registered design rights.
