The Kids Business Bloggers BBQTM is always a great opportunity to explore great brands and catch up with fellow bloggers and last week’s event was no different. There were some fantastic products waiting to be discovered but a few of them really stood out to me and I know you will love them too, I am particularly excited to introduce you to Bizzibrains:
Lovely Australian mum Nic is the mastermind behind Bizzibrains and the designer of the totally awesome I Learn App. If your child is about to start school this fabulous application is perfect for you, it’s fun, educational, interactive and creative and an excellent tool to help prepare young children for kindy or school. Our 6-year old twins and 4-year old loved testing it out at the Bloggers BBQ and immediately requested we got our own copy too.
The I Learn App allows children to customise the main character to represent them so they feel like the story is all about them. They can personalise the character’s name, clothes and look, they can also take their own photo and record their own name so they’re actually in the story themselves. They can include their parent/carer with name and photo and even the teacher’s name can be changed for a truly customised experience.
Over the course of 11 interactive story pages little students will be introduced to the classroom and the playground, learn about getting ready and recognising emotions, practise writing their name and simple maths and much more. The I Learn App is a fun and affordable way to prepare young children for a new learning environment in a playful, age appropriate manner.
With miss 4 starting kindy next week it’s perfect timing but the older kids love playing I Learn too, at times I have had to set the timer because one iPad between four children is cause for argument. She loves seeing her own picture on the screen and practising writing her name (an excellent fine motor skills exercise!). As a little fashionista she is forever changing her virtual outfit and she very much enjoys seeing mummy or daddy in the story.
The I Learn App ($4.99) is suitable for iPad and iPhone and available for purchase in the iTunes App Store right now, download your copy today:
