China

"I hear and I forget.
I see and I remember.
I do and I understand."
  • 66+M middle class households with children under 8; 16+M kids are born annually.

  • Were born in the mid-1980s-90s; they are smart, digitally and globally astute, and socially savvy.

  • Middle class families of kids under 9 spent $110B on kids' consumer goods, and $73B on education in 2017 alone.

  • There is a clear lack of excellent, fun, EDUtaining content for young children. That's where SmartGames comes in.
