Spelling Stomp game lets toddlers stomp out words in an active, interactive game

If you're still learning to read, chances are you don't remember the famous scene from Big where Tom Hanks dances on the huge floor piano at FAO Schwartz. But, if by a rather large chance you do, Spello would call it to mind.

Spello is currently under consideration and name testing at innovation platform Quirky. Their “Spelling Stomp” concept consists of a mat where letters of the alphabet are printed randomly. The mat connects to an app that creates spelling games for toddlers and other letter learners ready to play. For example, a child could be asked to spell “dog” by stepping on the letters in their order. The app would communicate with the mat to determine if and when mini Tom Hanks succeeded.
