A fun and logic-based kids board game for ipad

The rapid rise in popularity of tablets in general and iPad in particular has thrown open the whole concept of mobile games over the last couple of years. While the home computer opened up the whole gaming world it doesn't have the user-friendliness of a mobile version to capture the attention of the younger ones and the mobile phone is just too small. Confetti HD is a challenging new fast paced and fun game for older kids. This colorful logic-based board game for iOS requires you to gain points by collecting the right combination of three cards and complete your set. Sounds simple enough? ...  More

An interactive kids story book that will inspire and delight

I read a report the other day that suggested that Amazon now do more business in online books than they do in paper copies. We seem to have reached the tipping point for online books and the days of the bookshop looks to be going the same way as the music store. The only thing that has bucked the trend a little bit is the children book. I guess the traditional idea of reading to your kids from a real book is hard to shake but the advent of the very child friendly iPad has changed things forever. A not so Fading Light is a gorgeously illustrated interactive storybook application for iOS ...  More

Give your baby a classical brain massage

I'm pretty sure the first piece of music I can remember hearing and remembering was in the kitchen at home and it was the sweet sound of Connie Francis playing on the radio. These days kids are probably more likely to be presented with the rather more banal sound of Rebecca Black than someone with Connie's vocal abilities. The point is, of course, that it could be important to subject your baby to more quality pieces of music in their formative early years rather than the bubblegum pop of dear Rebecca, bless her soul. Classical Music for Babies is a new music app for your baby that takes ...  More

Safe social network for kids - proper parental control

Letting your kids loose on the internet must be a worry for any parent. With a range of social networks to choose from it’s not always easy to know just who’s hooking up as a friend and looking at photographs. On the other hand of course you don’t want to deprive youngsters of the pleasure of sharing special moments and at the same time honing some useful computer skills. Doing all of this in the knowledge that the environment is safe and secure is obviously the answer to all of those concerns and Vikido looks like a great place to start your children’s ...  More Dec 30th 2011

Publish your own book

I remember as a kid writing long stories with a fountain pen, adding a few drawings and then binding all the sheets of paper together in brown parcel paper tied down the middle with wool. I was an author at eight years old and nobody was going to tell me any different! It’s funny but I never sold any copies but my mother still has them in a box somewhere and they come out now and again when the subject of me writing for a living comes up, bless!  More
