My daughter recently turned 2 and I can’t believe it. My beautiful baby is starting to grow into a blooming little girl. I made the decision when she wasn’t even a year old that I wanted to be a stay-at-home mom and while it is so beneficial in some ways I think it is also a disadvantage in others. Even though I think that Raegan is on track with her language capabilities, I am constantly worried that she will fall behind due to the lack of being around other children in a learning environment. I personally think that exposing our babies and toddlers to linguistics and the sounds of language building blocks at a very young age is extremely important. I recently downloaded a free educational app for children called Mochu Pop by Kadho that actually helps toddlers learn 4 different languages through easy interactive games.
Kadho‘s mission statement is “We teach the world how to learn and provide the opportunity to be more.” Kadho will strive through its new free eBooks and games for babies and toddlers to preserve the innate linguistic abilities of very young children. The new company’s educational apps and eBooks are based on 50 years of brain science.
Mochu Pop, the brand new free game app for babies and toddlers from Kadho, just won the 2015 Platinum Award for Best App for Children and Toddlers, from Best Mobile App Awards. And I have to agree that it is pretty amazing. The visionaries at Kadho were especially excited that their free educational app, based on science, was selected over several other high grossing and top ranked games, including those that are based on subscription models and are known for focusing on entertainment, not education. Free is good in my book, and award-winning free is even better.
I can totally see why it won awards. It is so simple in design but also very attractive to the eye so it draws you in. My 2 year old daughter that has the attention span of a goldfish sat and played this educational game for just about half an hour, which is kind of amazing.
Getting started in the game is easy. You set up a profile and then at the beginning of each game you to pick a language, learn which shape and color to pop, and put it into action. Each time one of these shapes are popping a linguistic building block is spoken. The more you get correct in a row, the more extra rewards you receive in the game. And also little celebrations go off, like the confetti pictured in the frame below. I don’t know how much you know about two year olds, but they LOVE bright colors and little explosions like this. It keeps them wanting more.
So whichever device you use to allow your child to play games, go to that store to download this app and watch them enjoy learning. iTunes App store for iPad and iPhone, Kindle, & Google Play! The app is free, as will the upcoming eBooks and other apps coming out soon! So, please help me support this incredible new company by signing up.
