This Little Machine believes children deserve the highest quality educational applications. Created by a mother of two, This Little Machine is committed to beautiful design, learning through play, and making games that are fun, silly, and educational.

This Little Machine was created in 2018 by Maia Borghese after the birth of her second daughter. After 10 years in the tech industry, Maia decided to take time off from work to be home with her kids and quickly realized she wanted to use her tech skills to make something for her daughters. After watching her older daughter play games on her phone, Maia was inspired to create an educational game for her children.

In June 2018, Maia started work on Little Robot Shapes and Colors, a game that teaches shape and color matching by helping little robots find their missing parts. Little Robot Shapes and Colors launched in the App Store in June 2019.

In addition to 10 years experience in the tech industry, Maia holds a masters degree in Education Technology from the Harvard School of Education. She started her career as a teacher before working for several educational technology companies, digital agencies, and start-ups.
