Having a toddler girl after two boys is a totally different ball game. The boys at this age all loved Thomas the Tank Engine, Fireman Sam and anything on Cbeebies whereas the Pixie loves Peppa Pig, Ben and Holly, old school musicals/shows and of course, anything cbeebies!
Another big difference is that she is far more aware of technology than the boys ever were, partly because we have more technology in the house but also the fact that technology in the last 8 years has come on in leaps and bounds! When Beansy was born 8 years ago, I was on a blackberry phone but now of course, it is all about the iphone and ipad (well in this house anyway!).
I adore the ipad - I use it every single day to check my emails and I use the kindle app on it to download and read books. I read every night at bedtime and so, it is now invaluable. It is also a *great* addition to help with the kids education. Most nights, Beansy uses an app that helps him with his times tables, it's totally random and a GREAT way to get him to remember them, it really works and he enjoys it!
I have only downloaded a few apps for games, primarily because I want to remain mine, all mine........cue evil, manical laughter...
but I was offered the chance to review Peppa Piga Party Time App and as the Pixie adores, Peppa we went ahead.
The game is based around Peppa's party and there are 6 games:
1) Making the Invitations
2) Making the party bags
3) Let's bake a cake
4) Musical Chairs
5) Pass the Parcel
The instructions are all spoken which makes this ideal for pre-schoolers and the graphics and sounds are identical to the TV programme - Pixie adored it and although not educational, it is a great, well planned and fun game!!
Peace and Love
