TJ & Pals, the popular interactive preschool website, announced another 3-day giveaway of one of TJ’s best educational apps for kids in response to the enormous success of a similar initiative carried out earlier this month. From Friday February 17th until Sunday February 19th, users can download TJ’s Color In for FREE from the iTunes store.
All of the apps created by Umachaka Media, Inc. encourage kids to learn while having fun. The company has designed creative and educational apps based on the characters in the TJ & Pals website, dedicated to children ages 3-5. The activities on the preschool website revolve around the lives of an inquisitive pencil named TJ and his group of buddies, as they take kids on a journey of games, songs, videos, and stories–all incorporating the concept of “learning while playing.”
TJ’s COLOR IN is a “coloring-in studio with a difference” states Creative Director Ashley Lazarus. “TJ’s Color In is a fun way for children to express their creativity and share their artwork with family and friends. Kids can color in with a crayon, maker, or paintbrush; and kids can use the TAP & COLOR feature to select and tap colors into each section of the picture”.
TJ’s COLOR IN pictures are original renderings, created by TJ’s illustrators. Children can choose between coloring in pictures with backgrounds filled in and pictures without backgrounds. TJ’s COLOR IN pictures can be saved to your Photos or emailed directly from the app allowing preschooler’s to share their creations with loved ones.
In keeping with the educational focus of all TJ’s Apps, included with TJ’s Color In are two animated videos that introduce youngsters to the ABC’s and the 123’s. With original music, and captivating lyrics, the entire TJ & Pals ensemble help reinforce early number and letter recognition.
Other Umachaka Media Educational iPad apps include TJ’s Remember, an interactive memory game that can be played on three levels of difficulty with six colorful themes to choose from, TJ’s Seek&Find, an app that develops children’s pre-reading skills, and TJ’s Art Studio, the perfect app for any budding young Picasso.
