SzóKiMondóka – the world word by word

developmental books and toys with words


Do you want SzóKiMondóka to appear in your language?


SzóKiMondóka is a methodology that promotes literacy from an early age in a fun and interactive way which also creates opportunities for parents to play with their children using words, songs and rhymes. In today’s picture oriented world we bring the world of words closer to children in a playful way. We introduce the world to them word by word.


Words fuel imagination, pictures — while they provide examples, ultimately help form a limited belief if left unaccompanied by language

How are we different and why?

In each product we introduce a thematic collection of words that we teach to 2-6 years old children. We blend the text with the illustrations. The thematic words are highlighted and next to them their meanings are illustrated. The child says the word as it comes up in the story, based on the illustration. Their visual memory develops as well, while they view the shape of the word. This experience is a building block of reading.

Here you can read about our successful Kickstarter campaign. 

Our products

szókimondóka játékcsomagokSzóKiMondóka Kits

With our most comprehensive product the SzóKiMondóka kit takes the child’s experience of word play to the next level.

The child SEES the word, HEARS the word, SAYS the word, then ACTS OUT the meaning of the word. The words are then connected to a song or a rhyme and put into context in various situations.

The kits feature:

Each kit introduces an element through the corresponding set of words and the six chapter series (Family, Water, Air, Fire, Earth, Human) takes us through the four seasons, all the body parts, colors and more. The kit provides playful learning through an interactive DVD, which features native songs and rhymes along with a storybook which all highlight the same set of words.

SzóKiMondóka books

We choose our themes with the focus on how children get to know the world around them, word by word, step by step.

Our topics:

Songs and rhymes are an essential part of SzóKiMondóka books:

  • they help language development through musicality
  • they provide a bonding and meaningful experience for parent and child
  •  the rhymes encourage the playfulness of language
  • native rhymes teach kids about their culture

interactive signWe also use interactive signs to:

  • involve the child in the story
  • help the child draw conclusions from the story
  • trigger conversations between the parent and child

SzóKiMondóka’s books are well suited for the all important “lap time” between parent and child. Because of the interactive nature of our books it creates an ideal “emotional gas station” for the child.
