Living a busy life while also raising a little one means screens are most likely a sanity-saving part of your weekly routine. And while guilt might creep into your psyche about having your youngster glued to their tablet or TV, there are also plenty of programs and games with an abundance of learning opportunities for curious, developing minds. One of our favorite options of all is Noggin—an app filled with hundreds of educational games, videos, and books for 2-7 year olds. Bonus: all of this edu-tainment comes through the lens of your kiddo’s favorite Nick Jr. characters, including those from PAW PatrolPeppa PigBubble GuppiesBlaze and the Monster MachinesJoJo and Gran GranDora The Explorer, Shimmer & Shine, and many more!

We recently hosted a holiday-themed party with Noggin where we saw the appeal of the app first-hand. And today we’re taking things a step further, via an interview with Susan Gargiulo—one of the creators behind Noggin’s stellar digital games. The native New Yorker recently invited us into her Manhattan home to talk kids + tech, raising a teenager, and tips for co-viewing and co-playing Noggin with your children, amongst other gems.
