BABIES INCREASE INTELLIGENCE BY TOUCHING,
TICKLING AND TAPPING
Brilliant Giggles Computer Funtime
For Baby ™ Debuts in Booth 3150 at the American International
Rochester, NY (January 17, 2006) - Young children used to love
imitating their parents speaking on the telephone. If they weren’t
trying to grab the phone, they walked around babbling into blocks,
bananas, and, to Bowzer’s chagrin, stolen dog bones. But
for today’s parents, the phone has been replaced by the
computer keyboard. Babies can’t resist imitating mom and
dad’s e-mail activity by tapping away at the keys. And that
fact was the seed that inspired the most brilliant product at
this year’s Toy Fair, Giggles Computer Funtime For Baby.
Invented by Rochester software guru, Tim Leverett, for his 10-month
old son, this parent-inspired product encourages children to touch
and tap the keys, by offering instant feedback on-screen as a
reward. Because his son was so intrigued with the computer, Leverett
tried to find products that would satisfy that curiosity. Disappointed
at not finding anything suitable, fun or age appropriate, Leverett
decided to create something on his own.
“I looked around and there were really only a handful of
other titles geared toward the baby market, and to be honest,
I really didn’t think they were well done at all. They seemed
to be designed by big companies who told their developers, ‘We
need a baby product,’” Leverett said.
After 2 years of extensive research and development he became
the proud papa of a wonderful new software series for babies ages
6 to 24 months. In the first title to market, “Shapes,”
whenever a child touches the keyboard, they are rewarded by fun,
on-screen sounds and adorable dancing, flying and spinning shapes.
In addition to the 14 activities, each Giggles Computer Funtime
For Baby title includes more than 50 songs in 5 musical categories,
and Shapes includes a 2nd bonus CD with a limited edition screensaver
version of the software.
More than simply eliciting delighted laughter from babies, Giggles
Computer Funtime For Baby is highly educational. Research has
shown that the more you stimulate and interact with young children,
the more they learn and develop. The overall quality of their
learning and development increases dramatically.
Leverett is extremely excited and confident about debuting his
new product line to specialty toy retailers and computer software
distributors. This because he is arriving at Toy Fair on the heels
of two extremely successful consumer trade shows. In November
and December, 2005, at the American Baby Magazine Shows in Chicago
and New Jersey, Giggles Computer Funtime For Baby was the top-selling
product out of nearly 400 vendors.
Giggles Computer Funtime For Baby is easy to use, super-fun and
babies just love this product. The debut title, “Shapes,”
is available now for both PC and Mac and retails for $24.95. There
are plans for a total of 10 different titles in the series that
include “My Animal Friends,” “Funny Faces,”
and “Around My House.” New titles will be released
over the next 3 years.
