"Wubbzy Loves You was released last week by Cupcake Digital, Inc., a digital media company dedicated to the development of apps for preschoolers based on popular television properties. When Wubbzy and his friend Daizy find that Mr. Mailman is unable to work because of his coldy cold, they help save this special holiday by delivering lots of fun Friendship Day cards to all of the kooky residents of Wuzzleburg. The app is available today on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and Barnes & Noble for the introductory price of $1.99 (full price is $2.99).
“Our Cupcake Digital interactive story apps, based on episodes of the Emmy Award-winning series ‘Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!,’ are being embraced by fans of the show and by parents looking for entertaining, yet educational, experiences when they share apps with their kids,” said Cupcake Digital Chairman Brad Powers. “We always liken our philosophy to baking spinach into a brownie. The good stuff is in there but the child doesn’t know about it. When we create an app, we infuse learning moments into the fun.”

Children, parents, caregivers, and educators have discovered the value of the Common Core Corner and Grown Up’s Corner in every one of Cupcake Digital’s apps, and educators, in particular, have discovered the wonderful teaching opportunities these enhanced apps provide. Cupcake Digital apps have been lovingly crafted with imaginative storytelling, tappable animations, bright graphics, sing-along music videos, coloring pages and educational games.

Grown-Up’s Corner: This is the area where parents will find thoughtful questions to prompt discussion and initiate collaborative conversation with their children to encourage further thinking about the story.
Common Core Corner: Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are being introduced into schools throughout the country during the 2013 and 2014 school years. Parents will appreciate the new Common Core Corner for further explanation of the educational activities infused within the app to help prepare children for what they will be expected to learn in kindergarten.
Children will want to get up and dance with original Wubbzy music videos, including I Love You and Me and My Friends.
Kids can tap into their creativity by painting some of their favorite characters and scenes straight from the story!

Young fans can embark on many Wubbzy-related adventures in other top-rated apps, including the recently released Wubbzy’s Fire Engine Adventure and Wubbzy’s Dinosaur Adventure. Other Wubbzy apps include Wubbzy’s Pirate Treasure, Wubbzy’s Space Adventure, Wubbzy’s Train Adventure and Wubbzy’s The Night Before Christmas. Parents can find free downloadable worksheets and recommended activities for further practice of Common Core skills on Wubbzy and friends are also interacting with fans on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest as iWubbzy, iDaizy, iWidget and iWalden."


My Thoughts:

I downloaded this app for Savannah on Friday, and she hasn't stopping playing with it all weekend.  If you follow my blog, then you know that both my daughters, especially Savannah, love the animated hit television series, Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! and that I often review DVD releases from Anchor Bay Entertainment of this series.  So, it was only fitting that I download and share a Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! app with her.  It wasn't until last week that I was made aware of Cupcake Digital, Inc., and all their wonderful apps for kids.  

Here is a quick video that Cupcake Digital, Inc. shared on YouTube about this new app release, just to give you a feel for this must-have app for kids.

Looks like a cool app, huh?  Well, it really is.  I spent a couple hours over the weekend playing with this app with Savannah, and loved the interactive fun this app offers Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! fans.  Almost everything on each page of the storybook comes to life with a tap of the screen.  Children have the option of having the story read to them, or reading it themselves.  I love this feature, as I can either read it to Savannah when we are having Mommy and Me time and she wants to have her interactive storybook apps read to her.  Or, when I am busy tending to her little sister, she can have the story read to her, and tap away, bringing the story to life.

Overall, this is fun app, that will provide hours of entertainment to children, especially Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! fans.  And, make sure you check out the other Cupcake Digital, Inc. apps available.  I can't wait to hear which of their apps your children like. :-)
