The Adventures of
“Lily & Leo” is an interactive reading adventure in which you dive into the colorful adventurous world of the two best friends, Lily and Leo. You can read, solve puzzles and learn things whilst doing so – casually and naturally.
The focus is on playful learning of the content, as well as morals and values, which are packed into exciting experiences. There are already enough paper school workbooks – this one is engaging, interactive and fun!
We created this app to spark the interest of children in reading whilst having fun. In addition, they learn basic things, such as: How do I set up a tripod? How do I follow directions? Which tracks and footprints belong to which animal?
The Philosophy Behind Lily & Leo
Play is the most natural form of learning. We don’t only observe this in children, but also in young animals. The world is discovered and understood through play. Children have the inherent drive to learn and make an impact. Playful learning is the magic that takes place when you meld a child’s natural sense of curiosity with thoughtfully planned learning experiences.
This wonderfully natural mechanism ensures that learning does not always have to be exhausting and tiring. Curiosity, the urge to discover and the willingness to help are intrinsic motivational factors. Such internal (intrinsic) motivation has a deeper effect and impact than external (extrinsic) motivation. If the player then becomes completely absorbed in his activity and forgets time, he is in the so-called flow state. He burns for what he is doing. It is in this state of mind that learning comes easiest. Lily & Leo tries to motivate children to learn in this way. Knowledge is fun!

Unique Reading Adventure
Lily & Leo is an educational game developed with experts in pedagogy and teaching. The curriculum itself though is not the focus. This is where the school does it best. We see the app as an addition complimenting the school curriculum. In the puzzles, basic key skills, such as logical thinking, consequential reasoning and also behavior in social interactions are dealt with and trained. The main part is the story, with which we want to promote reading.
Lily is a clever and adventurous girl.
She enjoys climbing, rollicking about and she can run really fast. She doesn’t like listening to adults, only if they already have the same opinion as her anyways. She respects and admires all brave, venturesome and extraordinary people. She loves all animals, especially Leo’s dog Quattro. She likes trying new things and doesn’t shy away from exploring the unknown. She is fearless yet a bit impulsive.
Lily is not a big fan of school. Sitting still all day, listening to teachers and sticking to rules are not really her thing. Lily is very bright for her age and since she’s been on many adventures, she is capable of more than other kids.
Leo is an intelligent and clever boy.
He’s brave but not as rebellious as his best friend Lily. He is, however, more mature than her. Leo knows how to speak to adults, he manages to get home in time, and even comes back from his adventures with Lily without any ripped clothes.
Leo loves technology, does handicrafts and he even already knows how to programme. His father is an engineer, which is why Leo always learns a lot when he is working on technological projects with him. When Leo grows up, he wants to follow the footsteps of his idol Steve Wozniak, the famous electronic engineer.
His large set of skills has already helped him and Lily a lot on their adventures.
Dimitrij „Pepo“ Pepovic is an elderly Russian man who’s living in Lily and Leo’s neighbourhood.
Nobody knows what he’s doing, where he’s from, and what his job is. He’s an old eccentric and he lives very privately in a strange house with a big, heavily vegetated garden. Adults think he’s rather peculiar and mysterious.
Since Pepo is alone most of the time and somewhat odd, all kids of the neighbourhood are bit afraid of him. But that’s not necessary at all! Behind his sternly looking face, is a nice and kind man.
Pepo becomes a true friend to Lily and Leo, who supports them on all their adventures.
