One of the secret sauces behind Kazaz! is supporting the development of children’s’ visual literacy. Planet Kazaz! is all about the fun in entertainment and learning, but we’re also serious about the benefits for children who develop visual thinking when they engage with a story.
As you’re looking at the beautiful illustrations and photos of learning gems in our Stuvies, ask your child these 3 questions:
1- What’s going on in this picture?
2- What do you see that tells you that?
3- What else can we find?
The planet Kazaz! is supporting early childhood development, visual literacy and social emotional learning to prepare kids for success on their way to the next level.

These days, planet Kazaz! has been on the move, spinning his way into the hearts and storylines of Journalist and Mom Bloggers across the globe. For most of these moms, the learning aspect of Kazaz! has taken center stage.

Lille Punkin’ also focused on the reading and engagement benefits. In her post, Kazaz! Brings Stories to Life, blogger Linsey gets right to the point: “I want my kids to read more. And I’ll do just about anything to have that happen, even if it means embracing more screen time to get them excited about literature, books, and the written word! Our ‘reading’ arsenal is full of apps and activities to give them a fun and engaging way to be exposed to more books, and this includes using iPad apps. The latest we tried, Kazaz!, was another brilliant example of how technology can reinforce traditional phonics and language learning skills.”
Then, in a post titled, Kazaz! for iPad App Review, blogger Lindsey mentions that, like many kids, her five-and six-year-old children are actively involved with various apps on the iPad, which can become expensive. With her son’s interest in apps continuing to grow, she was quick to comment, “But once in a while there is a free, quality app like KAZAZ! that he can get without me having to pay for it. AND it’s educational so everybody wins!” Check out Lindsey’s blog to learn more about how her daughter loves the illustrations in Kazaz!, while her son connects with the pop-up learning gems and the app’s gaming aspect.
