To get or not to get?
I mean, I knew it was helpful for a lot of people, kids included, but let's face it...it's an investment. And Playette is four. And four can be quite destructive.
Once I realized, though, that this would benefit all of us and her educational apps would just be a really nice bonus on top of a pretty cool gadget, I relented.
And then, because I'm super tight with a dollar, we still waited a long time after that before actually taking the plunge.
I must say, I like it.
Mind you, both BD and I have iPhones and we have plenty of fun/educational stuff on those for Playette to partake in, but the larger screen? Eeeeeee!
Still totally a want. I get that. Trust.
But check this out.
I've loved this app since seeing Miss G show her stuff in a video that my friend Tricia made. Playette gets a real kick out of it, so of course it was transferred over promptly.
Check out how she signs and just really enjoys herself while playing.
(Really, anyone know if she's signing "flag" and "pumpkin" here or is it something else entirely? I know she threw deer in there when she saw the picture of one, even though it wasn't the word that was requested.)
If it weren't for this experience, I don't know that she'd currently recognize items like "harp" and "globe" and some of the other truly funky non-kid-ish words in the program that are totally escaping my brain right now. I mean, I know she'd get them sometime, she just wouldn't have them right now.
And her exclamation of "Awesome!"....Oh Em Gee. Love it.
By the way, it's the Receptive app under Kindergarten.com
If you have other apps that you recommend, I'd love to hear about them.
You know what? She may actually be signing "Hopkins", the name of the frog from Signing Time and not "pumpkin." There's that rhyming thing again!
