As a parent who uses apps as teaching tools for my child, I'm always on the lookout for new educational and fun apps. I recently learned about “Jim Henson’s Chatter Zoo” – a brand new iOS app from Mindshapes with an emphasis on early language.
Jim Henson Company teamed up with a language specialist, as well as award-winning app developer Mindshapes, to create and launch this new app for the youngest kids (24 to 42 months old) to master specific language goals while caring for their new friends in Jim Henson’s Chatter Zoo!
Available now in iTunes, Jim Henson’s Chatter Zoo was created by Alex Rockwell (Pajanimals, Bear in the Big Blue House) and centers on four adorable zoo babies --FRANNY the baby cheetah, BAILEY the baby elephant, PIP the baby wallaby, and LULU the baby panda.
The Chatter Zoo ‘appisode’ includes two “Learn & Play” activities and two interactive stories, animation and music content immersing children into a kid-friendly, entertaining, and intriguing day in Chatter Zoo. Together with the zoo babies, children will experience meal time where they help to feed the zoo babies their favorite food; play time; bath time fun after a busy day of playing; and bed time. Each part of the app focuses on a few key words.
In every story, the characters use the key words, and then repeat them in a simple song form at the end. The learn-and-play activities allow the child to interact with objects and learn their names while playing with the babies.
