The Molly Moccasins series, were inspired by a parent whose first dictionary was inscribed with, “A curious mind is never bored.” That statement led to a lifelong love of learning and the creation of this series to help nurture the natural curiosity in children around the world. When children are curious, they ask questions and research shows (Hidi & Renninger, 2006) that by encouraging these “curiosity questions,” we can help keep them interested in learning. In fact, deep, meaningful and lifelong learning all starts with the simple questions of, “I wonder why…” or “What happens if…”
Molly Moccasins shows children the joy of being curious and asking questions. Molly is constantly surprised and excited by the simple discoveries each day places in her path. With her toes tingling in her magical moccasins, she steps into the amusing adventures that arise from everyday experiences and awaken her sense of wonder and imagination.
With the story themes provided by nearly 70 episodes, Molly Moccasins, provides a fun and safe learning environment where children can follow their curiosity and enjoy a world of adventures on and off screen.
The story-driven digital play space of Molly Moccasins also offers parents and educators wonderful learning and exploration opportunities that blend the skills of inquiry and creative problem solving with the integrated subject matter approach of STEAM (integrated education that holistically embraces the intersection of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math).

The first dictionary that Victoria Ryan O’Toole ever received was inscribed with a powerful message from her favorite uncle: “A curious mind is never bored.” As soon as she read that line, she knew life would never be boring—and it never has been. Her first children’s series, Molly Moccasins, is evidence of Victoria’s optimistic perspective. Molly Moccasins finds meaning, knowledge and adventure in everyday life—just as Victoria has since she was young. Now Victoria has written and produced nearly 70 Molly Moccasins stories for the series, which have been enjoyed around the world.
She delights in her life with her husband, twin daughters and twin yellow labs, and is thrilled to be creating adventure stories that encourage children to use their imaginations and natural curiosities, just as she continues to use hers.
Curiosity - Molly Moccasins, Albert Einstein and Your Child! Einstein prized curiosity above all else. He once said he had no real talents, other than a passionate curiosity that drove him to never stop questioning. Molly Moccasins shares the same kind of curiosity about the world.
The digital library filled with animated stories is not only fun, but also full of the wonder that comes from discovering the why of things. Why does camouflage exist in nature? Why are bees so important? Why are people so interesting? Children are naturally curious. They want to know and explore. It's how they build their knowledge and even their ability to solve problems creatively.
The Molly Moccasins series offers stories that help motivate children to have fun learning and being curious. Once children understand how to follow their passion for curiosity like Molly and Albert, the world's "secrets" will unfold before them.
Don't just take our word for it, or even Einstein's. Educational researchers agree, "That we take curiosity to be instrumental to and even essential for education, inquiry and knowledge is confirmed by the fact that teachers often prefer techniques of instruction that excite curiosity...Stimulating curiosity is central to education and learning. "Schmitt FF, Lahroodi R. The epistemic value of curiosity. Educational Theory. 2008;8:125-48.
