ANIMAL FRIENDS WINS MORE FRIENDS
Rochester, NY (August 9, 2007)
love animals. Babies love animals. So when baby software developer, Leveractive,
LLC released the My Animal Friends title in their Giggles Computer Funtime
For Baby™ software series, they knew they had
that going for them. But it turns out reviewers love
The iParenting Media Awards for Outstanding Products of 2007
were announced this week and Giggles Computer Funtime For Baby™ -
My Animal Friends was on the list. This is the 8th award the
Giggles Baby™ product line has received in 2007 alone and
one of the most coveted awards in the children's product industry.
The Shapes title from the series was awarded an iParenting Media
Award in 2006.
"At iParenting, we know what a challenge it is for parents
to find outstanding products for their families. That’s
why we created the iParenting Media Awards program to thoroughly
review products and then recognize only the best ones and share
them with our audience," says Alvin All, Chief Executive
Officer of iParenting Media. "During our Outstanding Products
Call for Entry, our professional reviewers carefully evaluated
more than a thousand items, but only the ones that met or exceeded
our high standards earned the iParenting Media Award. We believe
iParenting Media Awards is the largest certified and audited
evaluation system of children's and parenting products in the
industry, and this should give parents comfort that we are screening
the same items they are exposed to in the marketplace."
Leveractive CEO, and the product's original creator, Tim Leverett
commented, "We're very pleased to be honored with another
iParenting Media Award this year. It provides parents with an
outside and unbiased reassurance that our product is of a very
high quality, creative, educational, fun, and very appropriate
for their little ones."
Invented by Tim Leverett for his 10-month old son, this parent-inspired
software product line encourages babies 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.
After 2 years of extensive research and development the new
software series for babies’ ages 6 to 24 months was born.
In each of the 3 available titles, whenever a child touches the
keyboard, they are rewarded by fun on-screen sounds and adorable
animated characters and actions. This elicits loads of giggles
and smiles from both babies and parents alike.
But 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.
Giggles Computer Funtime For Baby is easy to use, lots of fun
and babies just love this product. The 3 available titles, Shapes,
My Animal Friends, and ABC's & 123's are available for both
PC and Mac and retail for $19.99. There are plans for a total
of 10 different titles in the series and new titles will be released
over the next 3 years. In addition to the 14 activities included,
each Giggles Computer Funtime For Baby™ title includes
more than 50 songs in 5 musical categories, comes with both English & Spanish
versions, and includes a 2nd bonus CD with a screensaver version
of the software.
We look forward to seeing more of Leveractive’s innovative
and creative baby products in the coming years. Based on what
they’ve created so far, there’s lots more award-winning
fun and learning ahead. And that’s a good thing for our
