Smart phone apps can either be a hit or miss with my daughter. They are either too difficult to navigate, or cannot hold her attention for more than a few moments. The TeePee Colors app is definitely one of her new go-to favorites.Lindsay Powell is the creator of the app and is also a mother.
A few months ago, while stuck between a long car ride and a bored one-year-old, she had an idea to create a mobile app. She was looking for something that was educational, well-designed and age-appropriate without being overly-stimulating. She couldn’t find what she was looking for so she decided to make the one she wanted.
The goal is to teach kids (2-5) their first colors and shapes through sound, reference images, matching and simple interactions.I love that the voice narrating the different shapes and colors sounds more like how I would say the words to my daughter, rather than a monotonous robot voice. She especially loves the mini quizzes and the fun sounds it makes when she gets an answer correct.
If you are looking for an app that will be engaging as well as educational, then I would definitely recommend TeePee Colors. This is the first in what will be a series of nature-themed Teepee learning apps. It is now available in iTunes and will soon be coming to Android devices.
