The Story Behind Puzzlets

Having your parents yell at you to stop playing video games is a thing of the past. Enter Puzzlets: an interactive video game experience that teaches kids logic and coding skills. It’s always fun getting to know the team behind a company, so we asked the founders of Puzzlets a few questions and now we are hungry for dessert… you’ll see why.


How was Puzzlets born?  Love of nostalgic game systems like Nintendo combined with Justin, Matt, and Peter’s collaborative graduate schoolwork.

Why is coding important to learn at an early age? Software is the future and we’re into getting kids comfortable with the logic, sequencing and computational thinking needed to thrive in the future!

What has been the proudest moment while building your business? ActOutGame’s review of Puzzlets:

And what has been the biggest challenge? Balancing the gameplay and interaction so we achieve 50/50 play.

What do you see as Puzzlets’s next product?  Games teaching other STEAM topics, giving kids a fun introduction to any topic they want to learn!

What gets you guys excited each day when you go to work? Knowing that we have an opportunity to change the way children learn.

What is one fun fact about each of the founders? Matt used to work at one of the largest Ice Cream factories in the world. Justin loves ice cream from his favorite shop, Klavons. Peter prefers gelato.
