About us

We are the 37toystreet, a platform which presents and reviews educational applications. Our story stems back from the ‘80s when at 37, Riga Feraiou street in Patras, Greece, our parents started one of the very first toys stores in town making a lot of children and parents happy at that time. On the era of mobile apps we have the ambition to do the same but at larger (shall we say global?) scale. Our vision is to disrupt and change the way educational games are being created and presented in order to:

  • Help parents to select the most appropriate app for their children among a plethora of choices.
  • Empower parents so they can have an impact on the way that their children’s games are being developed. According to some studies parents’ reviews can help by 74% on the improvement of an app.
  • Provide added value to producers by helping them to attract more reviews for their apps. There are studies which show that 63% of the parents are more prone to buy a game/app when there is a review for it.
  • Yiannis

    Yiannis is co-founder and the CEO of 37toystreet. He is a Dr. who actually cannot save lives. Instead, he knows rather well how to extract knowledge from quantitative data helping then large organisations to maximise the value of their investments on software systems. In other words, Yiannis has a PhD in Data Mining in Software Engineering from University of Manchester, School of Computer Science. He is also the country manager of a Dutch management consultancy firm specialised in software matters.
