Happy Daycare Stories – The first 3D Playhouse in the App Store

PlayToddlers today is pleased to announce the release of Happy Daycare Stories 1.0, a small and fully interactive playhouse where children can nurse 5 lovely kids and role play, to create their own stories in a charming daycare center, with 7 different rooms. It has been specifically designed to be played by children from 2 years of age, but detailed enough to captivate and amuse children up to 8 years.

 

In Happy Daycare Stories, every room is an exploring adventure itself. Cabinets filled with toys, a kitchen where to cook healthy and delicious meals, a bedroom to put them to sleep, or a garden where they can gather fruits and squeeze natural juices.

 

This one-of-a-kind combination of activities and fun, in a safe 3D environment makes Happy Daycare Stories a unique game for iPhones and iPads. According the studio, this idea was born after watching how the children play house. As they grow, they are exposed to new experiences and their imaginations expand. In an effort to better understand their worlds, children pretend play, or role play. Happy Daycare Stories provides a safe environment to play without rules, where pieces are impossible to lose and never break, letting their imagination run wild.

 

Every room in this daycare center has been conceived to allow different activities and role plays to encourage their natural imagination. An entrance with a swimming pool, a playground with dozens of toys in its cabinets, a kitchen full of dishes, glasses and pots to play with, a theatre to make their own musical band, a cozy bedroom with 5 beds for nap time, a bathroom and a fruit garden. The game contains hundreds of toys and different objects, allowing thousands of different interactions.

 

As Guillermo Fernandez, Co-Founder at PlayToddlers, explains “We developed this game because we wanted to provide a safe and detailed environment where children can make their own stories and adventures in a daycare center with their imagination. We just provide the tools, and they create their story.”

 

Language Support:
* English, Spanish, Portuguese

 

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 6.0 or later
* 115 MB

 

Pricing and Availability:
Happy Daycare Stories 1.0 is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education (Kids) category.

Educatia 1.0 – The First Step towards a New Digital Education Platform

Bluewave Solutions has released Educatia 1.0, the company’s new education app for iPad devices. Educatia offers a new way for teachers to communicate with their students away from the classroom.

 

educatia_screen

Current Education Delivery systems are the books, which present an outdated system from the 19th Century. In the 18th and 19th century, the education delivery method was as much fun as the most entertaining delivery method available at that time, which was “to read a book,” and based on this a whole system of information delivery has been built around it; starting from teachers who had to sit with students in the same physical location to teach them word by word the content of the book. The changes afterwards came to the physical location itself by making it more sophisticated and inline with the industrial revolution. Each class of the students were labeled by their year of graduation.

Educatia offers a solution for the whole education system as it stripes Down to the basics of the educational process:

* Information Material as Books
* Medium to exchange the Information Material

With Educatia , Teachers will be able to:
* Create their Own Subjects Course
* Send their Subjects Codes to the designated Students
* Follow up with their Students through their own news Channel
* Allow Unlimited number of Students to Follow their Courses
* Send Assignments to their Students
* Collect Assignments from his Students to make proper assessment

 

Educatia 1.0 is free, and is available through the App Store in the Education category.

*Brought to you by the creators of Busy Shapes & Crazy Gears
* 100+ challenging levels with multiple pathways
* A unique “Build Mode” to create an endless possibility of levels to be shared with your friends.

Handwriting Heroes for iOS Teaches Letter Formation

AppyTherapy has released Handwriting Heroes 1.0, their educational iOS app for teaching letter formation through animation, music and interactive stories.

 

Each letter has a clever tale that describes the stroke sequence and explains why the letters are formed the way they are. The playful characters and their humorous antics help children recall the steps for forming the letters. It is part of a multi-sensory program designed for pre-school thru elementary-aged school children of all abilities.

Many schools have stopped teaching handwriting, leaving children to struggle with learning how to write by hand. Handwriting Heroes offers a step-by-step program which sorts letters into five groups, sorted by their first stroke.

The playful characters and their humorous antics help children recall the steps for forming the letters. Each letter has a clever story that describes the stroke sequence and explains WHY the letters are formed the way they are. For example, the letter “l” skydives DOWN, because that’s the direction that skydivers go! This naturally cues the student to start their letters at the top. The stories also incorporate the sounds that the letters make. In the letter “r”, for example, a ball drops onto a rabbit’s head, who groans “rrr”, because he is angry about being bopped on the head!

Program features:
* Integrated visual, kinesthetic, auditory and tactile learning strategies
* Custom Handwriting Heroes font facilitates continuous strokes and decreased letter reversals
* Three levels of difficulty and numerous customization options
* Multiple review and practice opportunities

 

Handwriting Heroes 1.0 is $2.99, and is available through the App Store.
