I received a box of Tiggly Shapes to review for this post. All opinions are my own.
My son is four, and given his luck of being a child born in the age of technology, he is already quite familiar with computers, tablets, and apps.
There are so many great interactive games designed for children, but as a former Kindergarten teacher I know that children need much more than screen time to truly learn.
Tiggly Shapes has invented a wonderful toddler-friendly toy designed to interact with tablets and apps. Designed for children ages 18 months to 4 years old, Tiggly Shapes combines the fun of a tablet app with the tactile experience of feeling a shape. Not only is Tiggly Shapes a fun and interactive game for toddlers, it also encourages spacial thinking, language development, motor skills, and creativity.
My son was so excited to receive a box of Tiggly Shapes of his very own. We easily downloaded the app and he had a great time matching the Tiggly Shapes to the animals on the tablet. He thought it was funny to see animals in the shapes of circles, stars, squares, and triangles, and enjoyed how the Tiggly Shapes allowed him to interact with the screen.
At four years old, my son has a basic concept of shapes, but this fun and interactive app is a wonderful reinforcement to his knowledge base and the tactile shapes really helped to secure his knowledge.
With a soft plastic cover and silicon touch points, the four toys (circle, square, triangle, star) in this package are durable enough for toddler play and gentle enough for iPad screens. A convenient felt carrying pouch is also included, so this game is perfect for educational learning on the go or a fun game to keep your little one occupied in the car or at a restaurant.
