I think I've mentioned once before how I am always looking to find apps for my phone and other electronic devices that we have for Blake to play with that are not only fun, but educational so she is gaining some knowledge at the same time she's enjoying herself. We don't spend hours and hours on apps, but I definitely do let her enjoy sometime with some games because well, I just do :)
With that said recently we were given the opportunity to try out a new app called Mickey's Magical Arts World by Disney Imagicademy. Disney Imagicademy is the first comprehensive brand of interactive and connected early learning experiences that combines the Disney characters and stories families love, with a research-driven curriculum developed in conjunction with top academics and education experts. Disney Imagicademy is a new learning brand designed for families with children ages 3 to 8 to inspire a natural love of learning and encourage kids to learn by creating, making and doing. The integrated program includes 30-plus app-based experiences – five of which are available now as part of Mickey’s Magical Math World – along with a companion app for parents – as well as books and other physical products that will be available for back-to-school 2015. The apps and products cover key subject matters that are important for early childhood development, including math, creative arts, science, reading and social and emotional skills.
There are so many wonderful things about this app that I honestly could just rave forever. First and foremost, Blake loves Disney and all of the characters that they've created so with that feature alone she really was hooked instantly. For me that is huge, it gives her that connection to want to see more based solely on loving particular characters. The interface of the app is very "kid-friendly" allowing your child to choose which type of activity they would like to play whether it be drawing, design, music, etc.
One of Blake's favorite activities is the "drawing" portion. She loved adding hair of all different colors to the character and laughed hysterically at the facial expression of the little character.
I definitely would reccomend downloading this app for your little one's if you're looking for something new and different! I'm positive it will become one of your child's favorite apps! Mickey’s Magical Arts World will be available on the App Store on February 12, 2015.Disney Imagicademy apps are available exclusively for iPad and can currently be found on Apple’s App Store in the Kids, Education and Entertainment categories.
