What is Lyka’s Adventure?
Lyka’s Adventure is a play and learn platform for children ages 4-9. Lyka is a huggable robot from another planet, and she has traveled to Planet Earth to find the answers she needs to save her home planet from destruction. Hop into the adventure by reading the Lyka’s Adventure books, downloading the iOS mobile app, or finding Lyka activities online.
How does it work?
Enjoy any of the Lyka’s Adventure products – iOS app, books, toys, labs – on it’s own or immerse yourself in the full experience by inserting your phone into Lyka’s heart pocket, reading along with the Lyka’s Adventure book series and activating the FREE Lyka’s Adventure app. *Books and app currently available only in Australia and New Zealand. North America coming soon.
What do I need to get started?
Kids love hugging and engaging with the Lyka plush doll. She’s special, cuddly and magical. Start with the Lyka doll and then we recommend reading the books, where you’ll go on a global adventure and find hidden codes that unlock photos, music, videos, and activities in the Lyka’s Adventure app.
