Here are some thoughts from the media...

At Tanoshi we believe developing computer skills are key to a brighter future.

According to Code.org, 90% of parents agree and want their children to study computer science.  Yet only 40% of K-12 schools teach CS.

Why computer science skills?  Well for instance...

1) Learning the fundamentals of computer science helps kids develop skills in logic, problem solving and creativity.

2) The average computer science major goes on to earn approximately 40% more than the average college grad.

3) Computing jobs are the #1 source of all new wages in the United States.  

In fact there are currently over 500,000 job openings in the US (in ALL 50 states), and computer science job openings are expected to grow at twice the rate of all other jobs.

4) Apps and the Internet are where people go to find answers and share their knowledge with the world.  Software developers play a huge role in how information is spread.

In order for your child to get a head start in developing computer skills, they need to start as early as possible.

While many schools are trying to keep up with the demand, only 40% of all K-12 schools in America teach any kind of computer programming. Furthermore very few elementary schools offer the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of computer science. Even though K-5 is the age range where the brain develops rapidly and interest solidify the most.  

Kids need a product that is Fun + Personal. Parents want a computer that is Educational + Safe + Affordable.  

Introducing Tanoshi…  

Tanoshi is a company founded in early 2015 with the purpose of developing fun, safe, educational and affordable consumer electronic products for today’s ‘digital native’ school age kids. Our team consist of industry veterans from Apple, HP, Blackberry, Vizio, Disney, Berlitz, etc.  

We have worked hard for over two years to develop ground up the best hardware and software experience for kids ages 6-12.  After many prototypes, tons of testing, and lots of overseas trips, we now have everything ready for production. 

We have a wonderful factory partner in place, and are ready to start mass production of 2-in-1 units at the conclusion of our Kickstarter campaign.  Pre-production sample units have been a lot of fun for us and our beta testers.  We are excited that soon many others will have the chance to learn and play!

We hope you will love your Tanoshi 2-in-1 as much as our early beta testers...

How is a Tanoshi 2-in-1 different than other computing products being sold to kids?  Here is a snap shot:

Risks and challenges

While we will try our hardest to deliver the first 500+ units to our early backers prior to December 24, 2017, and all additional units soon after, a delay in 3rd party lab certifications (e.g. FCC), 3rd party app partner integration, busy holiday freight forwarding from Asia, etc. could cause unexpected delays. As we are a seasoned team of industry veterans (former Apple, Vizio, Toshiba, HP, Blackberry, etc.) we do not anticipate long delays, however recognize they are possible. Thank you for your understanding.
