DigiPuppets Tablet Toy for Interactive Game Play

April 21, 2015

DigiPuppets is a new educational toy and app company that combines a simple, classic toy with interactive apps to tell powerful stories that teach.  DigiPuppets are classic finger puppets with a twist – they work on your iPad, iPhone or Android device.  Kids pop Honey Bunny, or Zip the Zebra, on their finger and then tap and swipe their way through DigiPuppets’ suite of educational apps.

HH&P menu-2DigiPuppets will be launching later this month but I had a chance to try it out early. I love toys that interact with mobile devices and promote productive talk around an activity.  The addition of a physical toy – this small and powerful DigiPuppet – to a digital play pattern boosts engagement.  There are three educational games built into their app Honey’s Hide & Peek.  Users will follow the adventures of Honey Bunny as they play hide and seek, enjoy a creative magic show and help Honey Bunny finish her chores.  The activities will help students build math and language arts skills – it’s perfect for Pre-K through first grade students.  There are two other noteworthy DigiPuppet apps: Honey Bunny Learns to Share and Zip’s Learning Adventure.
