No, you do not need Wi-Fi to play our learning games after you've downloaded them from the App Store and logged in to the games. However, you will need Wi-Fi to download our learning games, receive app updates, and use any Square Panda Cloud Services.

It's easy! Square Panda learning games include simple on­-screen instructions that will walk you through pairing the playset to your iPad and Android tablet devices.

Yes, apps can be downloaded on multiple tablets. The only restrictions are those that Apple or Google might enforce.

No. We have designed them to be durable but they should not be immersed in liquid. If they become wet, please wipe them off with a dry cloth as soon as possible. Do not play with any electronic toy in the bathtub.

Several reasons are possible:

  1. The letters have been damaged or are dirty which prevents them from seating properly in the playset. Clean the letters with a damp cloth and dry them thoroughly.
  2. The letter slots may need cleaning. Watch out especially for crumbs or small debris which may prevent the letters from sitting flat in the letter slot.
  3. Playset may need calibration. Make sure the playset is clear of all letters before calibrating.
  4. If the letters still read incorrectly after going through the above steps please contact us at support@squarepanda.in and we will replace them.

Your playset is calibrated at the factory to detect the smart letters. Under certain circumstances, the software may request that you calibrate the playset. Follow the instructions on screen or on the game's main menu, select MANAGE/PLAYSET. On the "MANAGE PLAYSET" screen select 'Calibrate' and follow the on-screen instructions.

We intentionally made the button into a "soft lock" that requires a long press to prevent players from accidentally entering the menu.

Please ensure you are putting in the correct email address and password. If the problem still persists, please contact customer support: support@squarepanda.in
