I recently was able to review a new app from Kiboomu through iTunes. I have an iPad and was able to download the app and let my daughters play. It pulls up as piano keys that teach your child to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. They started out with the song playing and they followed it. Then they realized that they could play it with different sound effects. This whole trip I have been listening to Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star being played in the back seat with them constantly changing from xylophone, keyboard, guitar, banjo, bell, recorder, harp and pig. Yes, I said pig! I think that was their favorite one whole day. There are 4 different modes of play. You can Play and Sing Along, Learn the Song, Karaoke Mode, and Free Style Mode. You can also change from English to French to Spanish. This app comes with the ability to record and playback. Of course after awhile they decided to try and play other songs.
Kiboomu has loads of songs for children. We had a lot of fun going through and listening to portions of the songs they have available. You can purchase songs individually or entire cd's of songs on iTunes. On their site they have the Songs, apps, Song Lyrics, and Sheet Music. There is also a blog if you are interested. The blog is loaded with interesting ideas and crafts! You can find them on Twitter and Facebook also.
"Teach. Sing. Learn. Give Back.
That’s what Kiboomu is all about.
It’s about creating music and apps that not only entertain children, but educate as well.
It’s about encouraging children to be creative through song and play.
But, most of all, it’s about filling a child’s day with laughter while expanding their growing minds in a fun and inviting way.
If we can accomplish that, our mission is complete!
Kiboomu is a kids’ digital edu-tainment company created by Sherry Segal & Wendy Wiseman. A portion of all sales goes toward feeding kids through the Kiboomu Foundation."
Both my daughters really enjoy playing with this app and it does keep them entertained while traveling. I had to re-charge my iPad every evening on the road! I recommend this app if you have young children to help teach them about music and encourage them in music. Thank you Kiboomu. I look forward to seeing what else you come up with.
