Powered by Mom shares a great new app for the iPad it’s the Bob and Larry’s ABC’s by Phil Vischer
To start the first thing I have to say is that this is a wonderful app. It’s fun, engaging and don’t tell the kids it’s educational. They’ll have so much fun with it while they learn, what more could a parent ask for?!
Bob and Larry two beloved Veggie Tale characters through animation, sounds and 3-D effects help children through the alphabet. Kids can tap on a letter, touch characters having them jump, float and more. Love the interaction with this app and parents can be involved too! Kids and parents can read and create stories together with this inventive app. It’s amazing all the things that can be done such as encouraging children to create their own words and sentences and I love that parents can share the children’s creation through email, Facebook and more!
Now my daughter is 12 so she is way past the age of needing to learn her alphabet but I had her try out the app as she as a tech savvy girl and I wanted her opinion on it. After all kids are the ultimate test to see how fun a game or toy really is, we adults don’t always get it right :).
Here’s what she had to say:
Loved seeing Bob and Larry on the app, she likes Veggie Tales and she thought that was fun.
She liked being able to create her own stories and what was even more fun was that as the “big kid” she was able to “teach” some of our younger family members and friends how to create stories. She enjoyed working with the younger kids and playing on this game and secretly I think she liked playing it herself as it’s so animated and she does love to create her own stories.
While it can’t keep up with a 12 year old and it’s not meant to it’s wonderful for younger children learning to read and put words and sentences together. It’s engaging and fun, they think of it as a game that they like.
Why parents will love it:
- Through fun interaction children learn letter recognition, rhyming words and it helps children remember words and sounds
- It’s animated, 3-D and interactive keeping children engaged and doing something fun AND educational
- It’s creative and there’s nothing in the content parents have to worry about it’s made with kids in mind for good clean fun
- You can share your child’s creation with family and friends
There is so much more but you need to discover some of it for yourselves as it will be a fun adventure that parents and children can do together. The app is only $2.99 that’s a steal for all the fun you all will have :). Check it out HERE!
