What's with the name? Ukloo?
This is a question we’ve been asked a lot! Educational games usually have names that are easy to read and relevant to the game. Agreed, here’s why we think that uKloo is a great name:
The intention was to have a name that was unique and easily accessible in any language. uKloo when pronounced properly is “you-clue” which makes sense because in this game is centered around “you finding the clues”!
Can you guess what the word uKloo is a scramble of? (u Look) – ask your kids to descramble the name!
Hey, it's fun to say! Yahoo for uKloo! Whoo Hoo uKloo!
