We always liken our philosophy to baking spinach into a brownie. The good stuff is in there but the child doesn’t know about it. When we create an app, we infuse learning moments into the fun.
New York, NY (PRWEB) February 21, 2013
Wubbzy Loves You was released today by Cupcake Digital, Inc., a digital media company dedicated to the development of apps for preschoolers based on popular television properties. When Wubbzy and his friend Daizy find that Mr. Mailman is unable to work because of his coldy cold, they help save this special holiday by delivering lots of fun Friendship Day cards to all of the kooky residents of Wuzzleburg. The app is available today on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and Barnes & Noble for the introductory price of $1.99 (full price is $2.99).
“Our Cupcake Digital interactive story apps, based on episodes of the Emmy Award-winning series ‘Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!,’ are being embraced by fans of the show and by parents looking for entertaining, yet educational, experiences when they share apps with their kids,” said Cupcake Digital Chairman Brad Powers. “We always liken our philosophy to baking spinach into a brownie. The good stuff is in there but the child doesn’t know about it. When we create an app, we infuse learning moments into the fun.”
Children, parents, caregivers, and educators have discovered the value of the Common Core Corner and Grown Up’s Corner in every one of Cupcake Digital’s apps, and educators, in particular, have discovered the wonderful teaching opportunities these enhanced apps provide. Cupcake Digital apps have been lovingly crafted with imaginative storytelling, tappable animations, bright graphics, sing-along music videos, coloring pages and educational games. Additional features include:
- Three Reading Modes: Just a Book, Read & Play or Read to Me
- Professional narration, promoting reading through sound and sight
- Hands-On Learning Activities: Bright, interactive learning games so kids can practice number recognition skills with a bubble counting game and build their sight word awareness with the mailbox game
OPPORTUNITIES FOR SHARED SCREEN TIME
Grown-Up's Corner: This is the area where parents will find thoughtful questions to prompt discussion and initiate collaborative conversation with their children to encourage further thinking about the story.
Common Core Corner: Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are being introduced into schools throughout the country during the 2013 and 2014 school years. Parents will appreciate the new Common Core Corner for further explanation of the educational activities infused within the app to help prepare children for what they will be expected to learn in kindergarten.
SING-A-LONG MUSIC VIDEOS
Children will want to get up and dance with original Wubbzy music videos, including I Love You and Me and My Friends.
Kids can tap into their creativity by painting some of their favorite characters and scenes straight from the story!
Young fans can embark on many Wubbzy-related adventures in other top-rated apps, including the recently released Wubbzy’s Fire Engine Adventure and Wubbzy’s Dinosaur Adventure. Other Wubbzy apps include Wubbzy’s Pirate Treasure, Wubbzy’s Space Adventure, Wubbzy’s Train Adventure and Wubbzy’s The Night Before Christmas.
