MCA: Hi Dmitriy, thank you so much for joining us, and congratulations on your Mom’s Choice Award! Bimi Boo Kids Learning Academy is perfect for kindergarten and preschool kids because it has everything: learning games, short stories, entertaining puzzles, interactive books, and educational videos! Can we first start the interview by having you tell us about the creation of your company, including its mission and vision?
Dmitriy: When we founded Bimi Boo Kids, we had the vision to create a world where all kids could have a wholesome childhood and access to the best educational resources.
We believe that every child deserves to have the best chance at success in life. That starts with having a parent or caregiver who is supportive and engaged, but it also means giving them kids the tools they need to grow up happy, healthy, and well-adjusted.
That’s why we make our products with love—because when kids are happy, they learn better!
We started out Bimi Boo Kids with our drawing app in 2016, and since then, we’ve developed 16 more educational apps for teaching kids important skills they need.
In 2018 we introduced our first line of wooden toys for kids—all designed to help little ones learn while they play!
In 2019, we debuted the educational series “The Incredible Stories of Bimi Boo and Friends” for kids. Filled with fun facts, learning songs and exciting adventures.
And we believe that every child deserves to have the best experience possible, and that’s why we work with the best experts from a variety of fields – psychologists, child development specialists, and more – to ensure that all of our products are safe, educational, and fun.
Parents shouldn’t have to worry about the safety of the products they’re getting for their kids. That’s why we’re committed to providing safe, quality products for your little one.
We’re not in the business of selling products. We’re in the business of helping kids.
