Even though I would prefer less electronic screen time learning and playing, it really is inevitable. Children these days know how to run and figure out electronics better than many adults. Technology class starts as early as Kindergarten, with computer time in Pre-K even. It is amazing to see how easily my four and six year olds can maneuver through devices and get to what they want. Unfortunately, they want more non educational apps and to watch YouTube and Netflix. So I have been on the hunt for something that is both educational and fun, that will keep their interest. I was introduced to the brand Tiggly and I am blown away with how fun and how many options the three systems offer.
Tiggly offers three learning systems, including: Tiggly Words for ages 4-8, Tiggly Math for ages 3-7 and Tiggly shapes for ages 2-5. When you purchase each system, they come included with download codes for three separate games each suited for the pieces included. Each of the pieces has silicone touch points that interact with the downloaded games (Apple Store or Google Play). The nice part about the games is that after the initial download, you don’t need Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to operate the games. This makes it nice for on the go.
We received the Tiggly Words as both of my children fit in the age range and can always use word and letter strengthening. We had planned to use our iPad, but unfortunately fate didn’t see it that way. So, we re-grouped and I downloaded it on my iPhone. The letters are as wide as my screen, but the games all still worked wonderfully. Both kids liked different games because they are at different points in their learning process. I love that even though only vowel letters are included, the games offer such a wide variety of ways to build vocabulary, memory, phonics and so much more. I also really appreciated that there is an included pouch so the letters don’t go missing!
