Who the heck are we?


Together the members of our company are working hard to add sensory, smart products to the supplement educational offerings currently available to educators, therapists, and parents of early readers.


The Polyblox, also known as The Ultimate Spelling Experience, is a fun and unique educational toy product. Our spelling totems are tactile and integrate upper and lower case letters, contextual pictures, sign language (ASL), Braille, and numbers that correlate to the letters to aid in sequencing the alphabet. Our totems have varying levels of difficulty, and our mobile app and website is being designed to engage and enrich each visitor by providing an interactive experience. Stay tuned for expansions of this product to include a cartoon series of our multi-lingual robots called Polybots.


The Polyblox headquarters is located in beautiful Orlando, Florida.


Nearly ten years ago, Laresa doodled an idea for a spelling aid on a blank piece of paper. This act started a journey into the world of manufacturing and design, and in no time she garnered supporters, cheerleaders and even partners! The Polyblox is patent-pending and we are working hard to make this available to everyone very soon.


Readers are leaders and we want to contribute in a meaningful way, and hope you do too. We are excited for children to experience spelling in a fun and unique way, but as adults it is our responsibility and due diligence to teach our children and upcoming generations about diversity, educate them on the different ways people learn, all while supporting our effort to eliminate fear of those with disabilities. Let’s make learning fun!
