Right or wrong, familiarity with technology is a given for our up-coming generation of kiddos and it is amazing just how early they start to pick it all up. It definitely brings peace of mind to parents to introduce our youngest ones to the interactive world of smart devices via something that is fun, safe and age appropriate.
Good Night Sleep Tight is an iPhone and iPad app created especially for babies and toddlers. Brisbane mum Cara Hewitt created the app while on maternity leave for her first child and it is now available at the App Store.
I received a copy of the game to review and I have to say my two boys, aged one-and-a-half and three, are smitten. Every day for the past week they have woken up asking to play the ‘monkey game’. From a parent’s point of view, I love that there are no ads or in-app purchases. I also love how intuitive the game is; my boys can easily navigate their way around the game without coming to hassle me for help every three minutes.
The boys love the colourful artworks and familiar characters, and the unlimited visual and musical surprises they find as they explore each scene. With the tap of a finger, they can help the monkey, chicken, cow and fish go to sleep, as well as paint the night sky with stars, uncover hidden creatures and make the moon play music.
Introduce your iPhone or iPad newbie to the wonderful world of Good Night Sleep Tight at the App Store for only $1.29. Oh and head to their website for a gorgeous and free poster that is ready to download in high resolution for printing out and putting up in the nursery.
