keeping an active journal increases kids’ writing skills, self-confidence, and helps them appreciate the value of friends and family.
Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
Mobile entertainment company DANO2 announces the iHeart Locket™, a 'smart necklace' that opens a corresponding diary app on the iPad®. The heart-shaped locket, with its polished gold finish and purple satin ribbon, adds sparkle to the field of wearable technology, and gets kids excited about keeping a journal.
The iHeart Locket app features a scrapbook-style design that takes full advantage of the iPad as a multi-media platform. The diary app enables youngsters to work with photos, illustrations, stickers, audio recordings and customizable materials. Children who are too young to type can utilize the automatic transcription feature and audio playback. Even the drawing features in the app are made magical by pressing the disappearing ink button on the locket.
The iHeart Locket’s creators are well versed in the educational value of the iPad and believe that keeping an active journal increases kids’ writing skills, self-confidence, and helps them appreciate the value of friends and family. “When I watch my kids do arts and crafts, they usually choose to make drawings of grandma, the family dog, or something that happened at school,” explains designer Daniel Monahan. “I believe that there is an innate play pattern in kids that uses art to make sense of the world around them.”
The iHeart Locket will be available for sale at select retailers and on the company’s website http://www.dano2.com in April. MSRP of $24.99.
