From a learning platform to plush toys, here’s how we got there.

At Sqooasha, we develop learning applications to help children excel academically. Our platform has four unique mascots: Mr. Leafy, Miss Bluenomial, Doug Digit and Ollie Septopus, which we are in the process of incorporating into our learning modules and educational games. The idea of making plush toys of these characters was brought to us by one of our consultants, but the idea was shut down because at the time we needed to focus on our core goal of developing engaging learning platforms.

Making our platform accessible to less privileged children is one of our top goals here at Sqooasha. Therefore, we created a free subscription plan to make a portion of our platform available to as many children as possible. Making these services available to these students free of charge can be expensive, so we started exploring ways to offset this cost.

It finally dawned on us that we could make plushies of our mascots and use a portion of the proceeds to help offset the cost of providing our learning platform to selected, less-privileged students free of charge. This is where you come in!

With your pledge/pre-order, we hope to raise enough money to create the initial batch of plushies, which will enable us to make our platform available to thousands of children. 

So far, we have only made what we call the 'Original Four', which are the original four mascot prototypes and we are pleased with the quality. Without further ado, meet Mr. Leafy!

This is Mr. Leafy!
