If you have been to one of our Mom’s Night Out you have probably heard about Tiggly Shapes and Tiggly Math. The Apple Moms LOVE these educational toys for our kids. Not only do my kids use them, but I use them at work with the toddlers and preschoolers I work with. They think they are so cool. Well what better to add to the Tiggly family but WORDS! Yup, now your kids can make words on their tablets with big, bright and easy to hold vowels A, E, I, O and U. I was able to first play with them at the New York Toy Fair, and have been patiently waiting since then for Words to come out.
Three new APPS are out to go along with the letters (which can be stored in the felt bag included with the shapes).
- Tiggly Tales has kids making new words by replacing the vowel in CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) patterns, storytelling, short sounds and word building. When the kids make a word it will appear on the screen (hog, cob, hen, cab, etc).
- Tiggly Submarine teaches the understanding of simple words with short vowel sounds, spelling patterns and exploration. The kids make fish, visit and rescue animals in the ocean.
- Giggly Doctor teaches kids verbs, short and short vowels and flexible thinking while fixing funny patients in the waiting room. This is a silly favorite for sure.
Each package includes 5 vowel toys, codes to download the 3 apps (each ones is 2. 99 if bought without toys), and a felt carrying pouch. Cost is $29.95 and can be bought online or at Apple stores for now. Coming to Target stores soon!
