5 Toys with Great Apps
The number of toys utilising apps, seems to be growing by the day, established toys like Furby and Moshi Monsters now have associated apps and there’s a whole new generation of app based toys hitting the market all the time.
Here are some of our favourites.
Toy Mail is a really cool new product that acts as a messenger for kids. Friends, parents or grandparents can record a message on the Toy Mail app ( using a funny voice if they choose ) and send it to the toy, which then speaks the message to the child. The child can even reply. We love this idea, what a great way to stay connected with friends and family.
Tiggly Shapes are rubber shapes used for play and learning with the associated app. Aimed at children between 18months and 4 years old, the apps help develop spatial awareness, reasoning and language skills.
What a great educational toy and app idea for little ones.
The new Furby Boom is a stand alone toy, but you can also buy an associated app which lets you feed your Furby a huge variety of food, and translates his Furbish for you.

These cute little guys come to life with the addition of an iPhone or iPod touch.
