An Edutainment Platform for Preschoolers

UI / UX 

An academic project based on real-time research and findings.


How many times have you seen a child being handed over a phone? When they are fussing over eating? Outside a trial room? When guests come over? Sometimes even as bait? This has become such a common sighting that it might not even strike us as unusual.


Children of today’s age are very fascinated by gadgets and have a considerable amount of screen time. I want to optimise this screen time in a way that children not only enjoy it, but also learn through it.

Children start learning ever since they’re born. Their young minds are very curious, moldable and are capable of absorbing a lot of information. This is the stage when they start developing and shaping up their individual personalities. This is, thus, a crucial stage which needs to be carefully catered to.


A chain of casual dining cafes, they offer a contemporary, warm ambience and judge themselves by customer satisfaction.

The system I created for Tea Villa Cafe aims to unite the physical and digital arenas while ensuring that all customers have an enhanced, seamless and memorable experience.

It caters to customers who visit the cafe. They may be visiting for dine-in or takeaway services.

For dine in services : 

On arrival, customers will be provided a tablet by Tea Villa Cafe. This tablet will contain the created system. Once seated, the interaction with the system will begin. While leaving, the customers will hand the tablet back to the restaurant.


  • Food menus are not very descriptive, visually and informatively. They thus do not help the customer much while making a choice

  • Not enough information is conveyed to customers in terms of preparation time, ETA, order status etc. This leads to the customer being impatient and unwillingly unaware

  • The waiting time in restaurants (for food, for the attendant) is a cause of displeasure among several customers

  • Some customers are hesitant to call the attendant multiple times

For takeaway services : 

On arrival, customers will be given a choice between ordering using the restaurant tablet or ​ordering using their own device. (scanning a QR code will allow customers to go ahead with this option)


  • Concise descriptions and photographs for each dish

  • Order tracking’ available to users, which shows the ETA of their order. A kitchen camera feature also introduced which allows the customer to view their food preparation. (An optional feature which can be turned on/off by the restaurant)

  • A ‘Leisure’ section which offers games and reading material (online and offline)

  • An ‘I require assistanceoption available at all times, to help users who are not technologically sound

  • An option to choose the sequence in which the customer would like their dishes to be served (if any)

  • Incentives appeal to all. Thus, a reward point system wherein, points can be utilised to avail discounts.
