Frequently Asked Questions

What is Peekado?
We are a kids’ book subscription service based out of UAE
Why the name 'Peekado'?
We recall ‘Peekaboo’ being one of the most frequently used word with our young son as a baby and toddler.
When it came to thinking about our business, our passion for reading and mindful parenting came together. Peekado is a play on Peekaboo, as in finding what is hidden, either behind the curtains or in the pages of a book. Together, we peek into the world of of books and encourage parents to consider reading as a bonding activity, thus ‘Do’. Peek and Do!
