Research & Efficacy
We’re committed to creating safe and developmentally appropriate digital experiences for kids, thus all our research has children at the center of it.
Why Moshi Works
The research says it all:
Moshi content is healthy content
Moshi supports self-regulation, attention and sleep
Self-Regulation: Moshi's stories, meditations and music calm kids (and keep kids calm) by teaching science-backed strategies that decrease stress and anxiety while increasing pro-social skills.
Attention: when kids are more regulated, the better able to focus and concentrate they are. Moshi's activities allow kids to practice their self-regulation skills and put their energy towards building cognitive skills.
Sleep: a good night’s sleep starts with a calm mind and body. Moshi lulls kids to sleep by helping them regulate and decrease negative thinking.
Mindfulness-Based Social & Emotional Learning
Moshi’s Education Program
Moshi is a tool for teachers who want to incorporate social and emotional learning (SEL) in their classrooms. Moshi encourages a systems-based approach to student achievement and growth— ideal for educators who want to make a meaningful impact. Moshi is developmentally appropriate for children ages 4-8 and seamlessly integrates into any classroom routine without requiring special training or external resources. With Moshi, teachers can ensure their students are receiving age-appropriate content that will help them grow and thrive.Learn more

The power of partnerships to increase student self-regulation strategies
Lori Northrup, a health instructor at Fremont Elementary K-2, reached out to Moshi for an app that could help students learn how to self-regulate, and found Moshi to be the ideal solution. In January 2023, Lori noticed that “Students are on their way to independently assessing their feelings and now (after using Moshi) are able to incorporate the strategies they are learning in their daily lives.”Read the full case study
