WH Questions Cards- Pro

WH Questions Cards- Pro by Super Duper Publications is a wonderful WH app. I was immediately amazed by this app when I first tried it out with myself. Options, options, options that was my first thought when working with it. With the pro version you will receive all the WH questions such as who, what, when, where, and why. There is different games and activities also for each of these. If you have ever explored the different items Super Duper has to offer you would have seen their Super Duper Secret Decoder, their cards, and more these are all included in this app. The different games/activities are: Super Duper Secret Decoder, Multiple choice, Matching, and Drag 'n Match. Each of these different games/activities are explained on itunes in their description very well. There is 280 picture cards total. You can manually or automatically track scores with this app. There has already been many updates and fixes to this app to make it even better then when it first came out so you have less fear of this app having problems then ever. I love the road Super Duper is taking with these newer set of apps. The option of in-app or pro versions are great if you only need part of the app or the full version for your family or school. As I said before the options are amazing and the graphics are great throughout the app. This app is a lot of fun and my children have loved using it. With the different activities they can change it up or use a different one if one has gotten to easy for them. There is defiantly enough room for this app to grow with your child as time goes on. I would highly highly highly recommend this app :)    (free version also available with in-app purchases)

DC Super Friends: Haunted Heroes

DC Super Friends: Haunted Heroes by ScrollMotion with partnership with Night & Day Studios:
This book app is out just in time for the Halloween season. Come follow your favorite super heroes on a haunted journey. This book app offers word highlighting, read along, record your own voice, and auto play. You can personalize the app with the camera to be able to take a pic with your DC friends. While playing with the app you can earn super friends points to receive cool rewards. The pages are interactive and fun. There is also coloring, puzzles, stickers, and sounds in the app. I have not updated my ipad yet to the newest IOS so I'm not sure if this is happening to everyone but when you try to add the picture at the beginning of the story it has been kicking me out of the app. Once again this could just be because I haven't updated yet. Everything else seems to be working great and this is an excellent story for your super hero loving children. My 7yr old son just loves super heroes and he has played this app over and over again since we got it. Please make sure to check this app out along with other ScrollMotion and Night & Day Studio apps :) Highly highly highly recommended :)

Calming Effects weighted lap pads

Calming Effects weighted lap pads: Some of you may have heard of them and other may not have. These weighted lap pads are made by our own Tammy Hadley :). Calming Effects has reopened for the holiday season for a few of these wonderful treasures. Each of these weighted lap pads are homemade with lots of love and care. These lap pads are not like some other that use polly pellets inside for the weight. She uses a much better product that feels heavier then the polly pellets by far!. I have three blankets and three lap pads from Calming Effects myself and love them. I have had to wash my youngest blanket many times and it has held up to all the wear and tear a washing machine can bring. One must remember with any homemade product they probably aren't meant to be washed continuously but his blanket had no choice and had to go in but it's survived. The lap pads work wonders while the kids are watching tv, doing homework, or even bed time. My children have had other weighted blankets in the past made of the polly pellets I mentioned above and they hated them. They thought they were just like a normal blanket, couldn't feel the weight on themselves, and it was just really big and bulky because of all the stuffing that had to be placed inside and with the Calming Effects ones it was just the opposite. I had never owned a lap pad before this but they are similar to a blanket only smaller. If you want a strong, sturdy, made with love lap pad just in time for the Holiday season then I suggest you check out Calming Effects. The women who runs it is a wonderful lady and will help give you what you need for a low price but wonderful lap pad fast :).

Dr. Panda’s Restaurant


Dr. Panda’s Restaurant by. Tribe Play
Here is another cooking game for the preschooler or is it? It is not just a cooking game. In this game your child will get to Prepare and serve the food, which is assumed by the title. They will also get to do quite a bit more. They will be able to feed the customers , clean the tables decorate the dining area, wash the dishes and my personal favorite recycle the garbage. It is an interactive game where your child will get to run their own restaurant. Now the customers are not your average customers they are animals.. large animals.  There are eight animals to feed and 10 recipes to make so your child will not get bored. The recipes will allow your child the opportunity to safely participate in activities such as slicing, toasting, baking and mixing. While playing the app they will also be practicing fine motor skills. The will also get to plan the sequence of events. I think this app is perfect for early child hood learning. It also will help prepare them a little for chores around your house hold. There is no reading involved so your child will be able to enjoy this app on his or her own. My son is 4 years old and is enjoying running his own restaurant.  The animations and sounds are fun and seem to work wonderfully even on our I pad first generation. Not sure Dr. Pandas is for your child there is free versions of each of their games as well.
