Tink Digital was founded by a husband and wife team. Their talents as a Software Engineer, and Visual Arts Teacher lead the Tink Digital team to craft creative, educational and thought provoking fun for kids of all ages. 


At Tink Digital we believe that creativity is an integral part of learning and growth.  To fully understand and grow within the world we believe you must be able to engage, play, tinker and interact with it.  Todays kids have two worlds that they must learn to navigate for success; both the physical and digital. Therefore, we build products to promote and nourish imaginative and educational play that helps children safely interact with and build a relationship technology as a tool. By combining digital games with the physical world, our products are ones that both parents and kids alike love.
