Your child can come up with their own instructions and math problems by designing custom recipes. They decide what ingredients they would like to experiment with and how many of each ingredient is needed.


Tiggly Chef encourages your child to think flexibly about numbers and arrive at the answer in many different ways. For example, if there are 8 bits in the machine and the lab notes ask for only 5, you can subtract extra ingredients one by one (8 1 = 7; 7- 1 = 6; 6- 1 =5), you can take away a group of 3 in one action (8 3 = 5), or subtract 2 first and then take away the last extra bit (8 2 = 6; 6 -1 = 5)


To add Tiggly Chef stickers to your iMessage, tap on the App Store icon beside the chat field, tap on "Manage" tab at the top, and turn on Tiggly Chef stickers!


This app is compatible with Tiggly Math Smart Toys. Your Tiggly toys can be used like real counting rods inspired by classic Cuisenaire rods used in Montessori classrooms use the toys to take away extra ingredients and learn math in a more tactile way. The app is optimized to work with Tiggly toys but also offers a fun learning experience without the toys.

Our educator-designed tablet toys interact with learning apps because we believe there is a powerful learning opportunity in the combination of physical and digital play. Children explore mathematical concepts and numerical relations by manipulating physical number blocks while playing in wonderful digital worlds that stretch their imagination and spark their creativity.
