Highly amusing storybook app that parents will love!

Touch Tech Kids are excited to launch “Messy Mia and the Tale of Ancient Tech”, an original storybook app for iPad and Android that parents and kids will adore.

Messy Mia tells the story of a young girl learning about technology from days gone by. In her journey to find her mom’s TV remote, Mia makes friends with Zed, a friendly robot keen to tell her all about old technology. Kids learn about the differences in technology from when VHS, cassette tapes, and dial-up Internet were common, to today’s high tech world. The storybook iPad app, ideal for kids aged 4-8 years, creates a fun interactive experience for kids to get excited about the history of technology.

Unique from head to toe, Messy Mia and the Tale of Ancient Tech, is available for $3.99 on iPhone, iPad, Android and Kindle Fire.

Co-writer Samantha Kotey, explains “Messy Mia was born out of my passion for all things digital and being a new mom, I wanted to find a way to tell my daughter about how technology has changed since I was young, and how different life is now because of new technology”.

The storybook app for kids encourages conversation between parents and children, letting them reminisce about their life before modern technology. Messy Mia also reinforces comprehension through three reflection sections. This helps kids think about what they have learned in the storybook app, and reflect on how technology has changed from the past.

The iPad & Android storybook app for kids has 20 fully interactive pages in both English and Spanish, and also includes 4 fun games ‘Color Mia’, ‘Match the Tech’, ‘Tidy Mia’s Room’ and ‘Memory’. Messy Mia allows kids to read the book on their own, or for younger kids, to have it read to them.
