One week ago I introduced my son to an app called Sago Mini Space Explorer, and I have have not stopped hearing about it since!
The App was created by a company called Sago Sago, and last week were were invited for a play date at their downtown studio in Toronto.
Sago Play Date’s are hosted right in the heart of the Sago Sago offices. I was surprised to find out that Sago Sago was located in Toronto.
The studio is bright, inviting, and the perfect spot for a play date! There was a table with crayons, colouring pages, and a craft to make your own mask. In the same room there were lots of children’s books, and a television. A separate room had toys, more books, and a chalk board. We settled right in and met some of the Sago Sago staff. Everyone seemed very friendly, and genuinely happy to meet us and talk about their products.
My son sat with some of the staff, and played with apps that we had not only downloaded, but all of the Sago Mini apps that have been launched, including one not yet released and under development.
The iPad was able to capture his choices while he was playing with the apps, and Sago Sago can then understand his pattern of play.
While there he had the opportunity to play with toys, colour, make a craft, or generally just run around, but we couldn’t get him away from the Sago Mini apps! Actually, there was one thing we did to draw him away from the iPad – they even hosted a snack time for him during the play date as well. They offered crackers, apple slices, Goldfish, apple sauce, and juice. He was pretty excited about the snacks!
While there we also had the opportunity to have a sneak peek at the new Sago Mini Plush Toys. They represent the characters found in the Sago Mini apps, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to need to get a hold of Harvey the Dog considering how popular he is at my house! They are launching soon, but you can pre-order them now here.
We had a great time at our Sago Play Date! If you are also interested attending, you need to become a Sago Mini subscriber. Sago Mini subscribers receive advance sneak-peeks and behind the scenes info, exclusive promotions and giveaways, and invitations to special events such as Sago Play Date’s.

There are 11 Sago Mini apps available on the iTunes Store now, and as a parent I would recommend them all. My son easily went from trying one app to the next, switching between characters, and moving from one activity to the next. Sago Mini apps do not contain in-app purchases or third-party advertising which is a relief! For more information check out www.sagosago.com
