I get a lot of apps to try out and review. Most of them are educational in nature and I like that because Eva can play them and learn at the same time. Some really good stuff is coming out from Disney Learning and until September 12 there are three apps on sale. They are Pooh’s Birthday Surprise, Toy Story Showtime! and Learn Chinese: Toy Story 3. These Disney Learning apps will be only $1.99 on the App Store (orig. $4.99) from August 29th – September 12th!
- Pooh’s Birthday Surprise (early literacy and pre-math skills)
Featuring the beloved characters of the Hundred-Acre Woods, this interactive storybook app invites kids to join in Pooh’s birthday party planning. The app aims to help children acquire and retain early literacy and pre-math skills at home and on-the-go through curriculum-based content and such activities as identifying and extending simple patterns, problem solving, vocabulary awareness, and story comprehension. The app is recommended for children ages 3-5.
- Toy Story Showtime! (early reading concepts)
This interactive storybook app, aimed at children ages 4-6, is designed to help learners explore essential early reading concepts through engaging and interactive ways. “Toy Story Showtime!” features Buzz Lightyear as he sets out to impress Jessie the Cowgirl in a talent show. Readers can assist him with his comedy and juggling acts while they discover new vocabulary words through context and story-based repetition.
- Learn Chinese: Toy Story 3 (introduction to basic Mandarin)
Learn Chinese: Toy Story 3 presents a whole new way to learn a foreign language with this read-along app based on the international teaching method Diglot Weave. Kids experience the excitement of Toy Story 3 with Buzz and Woody while gradually transforming it from English to a story they understand in Chinese and Pinyin, mixing the new with the known by playing with 5 progressive levels of the story.
I will be reviewing the Winnie the Pooh App and the Toy Story Reading app soon. I already reviewed the Learn Chinese app and loved it.
Disclosure: I am provided with the apps from time to time in order to review them. The opinions about the apps are 100% my own.
