BABY TRADITION GOES HIGH-TECH
Rochester, NY, February 06, 2008 -- Nursery Rhymes have become the “comfort
food” of stories over many generations. We all have fond memories of hearing
them as children, and we pass them down to our own children with the same passion
and love that they were told to us. Leveractive, LLC is taking this grand tradition
into today’s computer-driven households with the release of Nursery Rhymes,
the latest title in its award-winning Giggles Computer Funtime For Baby™ software
series for babies 6-to-24 months. Nursery Rhymes is being debuted at the American
International Toy Fair in NYC on February 17-20, 2008 in booth #6224.
Like all of the previous Giggles Baby™ titles, which include
My Animal Friends and ABC’s & 123’s, the new
Nursery Rhymes title lets babies touch and tap the keys on any
computer keyboard for adorable on-screen feedback and fun. The
unique keyboard tapping software for babies locks out the computer
system, protecting parents computer and files, so that baby can
touch any key at all on the keyboard.
The Giggles Computer Funtime For Baby™ series has been
hailed as a ground-breaking approach to letting babies as young
as 6 months of age interact with a computer, and in this latest
release, babies can interact with and control the classic nursery
rhymes on-screen, by just pressing or tapping any key on the
computer keyboard. This new title, which will be shipping by
the end of March 2008 and available for both PC and Mac, will
provide parents with a unique new way to lovingly share these
historic tales with their children.
Nursery Rhymes contains 14 key-tapping activities each modeled
after a famous nursery rhyme, such as Jack and Jill, Hey Diddle
Diddle, and Mary Had A Little Lamb. Each activity is an animated
visual representation of the nursery rhyme that little ones can
interact with just by pressing keys. The words for each rhyme
can be viewed on-screen as well, letting parents share these
priceless stories with a new generation. The program contains
more than 50 songs, and of course the accompanying song for each
nursery rhyme so parents can sing along for baby.
The Giggles Computer Funtime For Baby™ Nursery Rhymes
title provides the same cause- and-effect on-screen feedback
that babies love as other Giggles Baby™ titles, but also
adds a new dimension to the play experience for toddlers at the
upper end of the 6-to-36 month age range, by adding a new “Toddler
Mode” that can be turned on or off in many activities.
In Baby Mode, the activities function just as expected - hit
the keys and fun interactions and silly antics happen on-screen.
In Toddler Mode, little ones are challenged to access 3 different
levels of rewards by continuing to press the keys without pausing.
If they pause for too long between key presses, the activity
returns to the beginning. If they continue pressing the keys
without a long pause, they’re taken through 3 levels of
rewards with a final “you did it” extra-funny reward
at the end.
This new expansion of the program allows it to cater to children
from 6 months old up to 3 years old very comfortably and appropriately
using the Baby Mode or Toddler Mode.
So, why software for babies? Babies see their parents using
the computer all the time, and just like in the 70’s and
80’s when babies wanted to continually play with the telephone
they saw in Mom’s hand, babies today really want to touch
the computer keys they see Mom and Dad touching all the time.
The Giggles Computer Funtime For Baby™ software series
is the only software product available that directly addresses
this and allows babies to touch any key at all, while providing
engaging and age-appropriate content. This elicits loads of giggles
and smiles from both babies and parents alike.
But more than simply eliciting delighted laughter from babies,
Giggles is highly educational. Research has shown that the more
you stimulate and interact with young children, the more they
learn and develop and the overall quality of their learning and
development increases dramatically.
Giggles Computer Funtime For Baby™ is easy to use, lots
of fun and babies do love this product. Along with the new Nursery
Rhymes, the other 3 available titles include, Shapes, My Animal
Friends, and ABC’s & 123’s. All ship with both
PC and Mac versions, as well as English and Spanish versions,
all on the same CD 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.
