When it comes to iPad apps, the more interactive it is the better. With two toddlers, they are all about tapping away at the screen and seeing things come alive. So, when they saw I had downloaded a fun new app, "Dabby Dill and the Hiccup Pickle," of which I said it had a lot of hidden surprises, they couldn't wait to try it out. Even though we have had only this app for about a week now, the girls can't get enough of it. :-) Since downloading, I haven't seen them not play with the app during their daily iPad time.
Not only is the story cute, as it follow a little girl with pigtails called Dabby Dill, who wakes up one morning with hiccups. She tries her hardest to get rid of them, and asks everyone around her for help. But, she can't seem to shake the hiccups. What is she to do. Little ones will love following along with this easy to understand story, while also tapping on the different objects in each page's illustrations to make them come alive with sound and movement. In addition to this neat interactive feature, kids will also love learning new words. Certain words are highlighted throughout the story.
And, when a child clicks on the word, a dictionary entry pops ups, which gives the definition of this new word, and also teaches a child how to properly pronounce the word. I was amazed that by the second day, Savannah was using words like scurry in her day to day activities. My husband was the one who heard her say, "Look at Bella scurry along, Daddy." He asked me where she learned this word. I had to think for a minute, and then she chimed in "Dabby Dill, Mommy!" How could I have forgotten? :-)
This fun interactive app also includes a song to sing along to, as well as sequence game (similar to Simon from back in the day...one of my childhood favorites) and even a dill pickle recipe.
While I haven't tried the recipe out, I promised the girls this upcoming weekend we would.
But, in the meantime, the girls are enjoying this new interactive storybook app, which they can have read to them or have me read to them. I am hoping that this is just the first and long line of Dabby Dill storybook apps that will be available, as my girls and I are loving this one, and can't wait for more!
