Peekabook, from Matterkids, is an educational toy for interactive storytelling and discovery
Peekabook is an educational toy that combines illustration, tech and tactility for a fun interactive storytelling and discovery for children age 3 and above. The set pairs a physical explorer ring with an iPad app filled with interactive books designed by children’s storytellers and illustrators from all over the world. Like a magical looking glass, it activates the artwork and transports the child into a world of wonder and discovery.
Each interactive book is teeming with detailed artwork and mini surprises. Your child can choose a book and use the explorer ring on the screen to pan around to explore and activate hidden secrets, fun facts and even learn about science and biology.
Why do parents and educators love Peekabook!
We let parents, kids and educators try Peekabook for their first time. See what they loved about it!
I think Peekabook is great because it’s very open-ended, allowing children the freedom to explore. It's similar to Picture Talk Activities that make education highly interactive and engaging.
– Amelia C, Deputy Chief Playmaker from Plain as Play, 5 years in Early Childhood Education
We love the Peekabook because we feel like it helps children develop their curiosity. They're encouraged to explore and wonder, which is an important part of learning.
– Xin, mother of 3- and 6-year-olds
I love that this app is educational without being boring or too hard for my little one to understand (she is only 4 years old). It gives us something fun to do together that helps her learn new things while having fun doing it!
– Anna, mother of a 4-year-old
It's a fun way to learn about different things, and it's also really great for expanding your creativity.
– Samuel, father of 2-, 3- and 5-year-olds
The best part is that they're not just books: they're experiences that you can really immerse in their worlds. This makes it much more engaging than reading alone would have been, which leads to more fun and learning overall.
– Joshua, father of 5- and 7-year-olds
We like it that because the content is really engaging and interactive unlike passive screen time, we feel comfortable even for our child to explore the artwork by himself.
– Huey Jiun, mother of a 4-year-old

How does it work?
Start your journey of interactive learning with Peekabook:
Built around the values of a better world
The books are built upon the foundations of lifelong learning - Curiosity and wonder. They are beautifully detailed artworks with hidden surprises, rewarding and reinforcing your child's curiosity with every new discovery. We believe that every child should have the creative confidence to dream and believe in who they are and what they can do in their new world, and we hope to nurture that.
Exposure to diversity broadens one’s understanding (and acceptance) to differences in our world. By being a platform for different artists and storytellers around the world, we hope to connect children and parents to people and cultures, presenting varying forms of aesthetics and points of views.
Your child determines their own play with Peekabook. There is never a right or wrong way to play. Open-ended play design allows for varying levels of engagement to suit different development stages of your child and strengthen your child’s creative confidence through trial and error.
Peekabook is great for independent exploration, and also guided play. Tell the story your way, ask questions and create learning moments. Connect the books to real life experiences. With the wide array of beautiful illustrated topics and stories, there’s always so much to discuss and enjoy together.
From magical to educational, there’s a book for every child.
Peekabook is a platform for educators, designers and storytellers around the world to connect with children. Each book has been specially designed for Peekabook to create a unique learning experience for your child. We are constantly expanding our range of new topics and themes with new and existing artists to bring learning and creativity to every child. Meet some of our founding artists and their works:
