Features iconic children´s characters and developmentally beneficial play and learn experiences
London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) May 02, 2013
Mindshapes, the award-winning creator of fun educational mobile apps for kids, today announced the release of “My Story World” for iPad. “My Story World” offers an enhanced story adventure experience where kids between 3 and 7 will discover stories filled with characters they know and love, with educational content specifically designed to reinforce their comprehension, critical thinking and social emotional skills.
The app contains story adventures featuring Sid the Science Kid, Winnie the Witch, Elmer the Elephant and other family favourites from TV, books and film. Each story features two key modes, “Read to Me” and “Play and Learn”.
“Play and Learn” mode is a fun way to engage children in the story, designed to reinforce their higher order thinking and social/emotional skills, by them participating in embedded learning moments. The stories in “My Story World” provide a jumping off point into creative activities that stimulate their imaginations. For example, at the end of an Elmer story a child would complete a series of drawing tasks based on that story.
The sophistication of the learning and creative activities grows with the child´s use of “My Story World”. The user interface and rewards systems within “My Story World” are simple, easy, and intuitive to use, making this an experience for kids to enjoy either on their own or with a parent or sibling.
“My Story World” is Mindshapes´ follow-up to its award-winning “Magic Town” platform. It has been developed based on consumer feedback and insights, key learning in the market, and in partnership with world-leading play scientists and interactive education product experts.
“My Story World has at its core, the needs and wishes of kids and families, while also embedding the most compelling fun learning journeys based on solid principles, and the best features and functionality this medium has to offer,” said Co-CEO Nina Pustilnik. Co-CEO Chris Michaels agreed, and added: “We aim to delight children, have them learn along the way, and provide great value to both families and our trusted media partners and publishers across the globe”.
