It’s true, we’re on the move. But don’t worry, we aren’t going far and we’ll be back before you know it!
With the success of The iMums, we have now outgrown our current web host so will be migrating our site over to a new host from Saturday September 1, 2012. This can take up to 24-48 hours to complete but we’re hoping this isn’t the case as we would like to be back “on the air” much sooner than that! We also have some very exciting things happening with the site including a category restructure which will result in a more user-friendly way to search for apps on our site and also a couple of cosmetic changes, just to freshen it up a bit.
Just for opening this newsletter and getting in on our special news, I have a surprise for you. Thanks to our friends at Loeschware, we have a few codes to give out for their app Big Top Circus. Just added a few more codes, be sure to click the images below.
Our friends at Niyya also had a few codes for Little Blue Jackal to share as well!
Do you have a suggestion for our “new” site? We’d love to hear it. We would like to thank you for your patience during the migration, which will hopefully go off without a hitch, and for your continued support. Please keep your fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly for us!
LunchBoxReviews.com: "Parents should download this app for its great visuals and many educational opportunities."
The Circus is in town! LoeschWare introduces Big Top Circus, an educational app that embraces the thrills and follies of the Circus. Expect a little of the unexpected as your little one gets positive reinforcement for exploring, matching, counting, color and shape recognition, and having fun.
Every one of our five highly interactive scenes are full of opportunities for discovery and learning:
• Appropriate for pre-toddler to preschool: Ages 10 months to 4 years.
• COUNTING: Leaping tigers teach little ones to count.
• COLORS: Spectacular ponies illustrate color recognition.
• SHAPES: The elephant brigade marches out the shape matching game.
• PLAY: Send in the clowns! Our Big Top clowns have their own ring full of interactive silly stunts just for fun. Brilliant colors, energetic music, and more fun than a barrel of monkeys! Don't miss tapping the green balloon for some balloon popping fun.
• MATCHING: As the evening winds down, your child can help all the baby animals get back to their mommies & daddies in our nighty-night matching game.
A true stand-out among educational apps, Big Top Circus has great appeal for kids, enhanced by artwork that evokes the vivid sights and sounds of the circus. Who says learning isn't fun? LoeschWare's Big Top Circus, a three-ring spectacular!
