PostHeaderIcon #Free PlayTown Story Building App for ages 3-9

It’s amazing how  kids as young as 2, can grab a phone or iPod, unlock it, and find their way to their favorite apps. I don’ t know about you but I am pretty sure I was probably eating dirt when I was 2. There are so many apps available for kids these days, it’s hard to go through them all and find the great ones.

Look no further… I don’t normally post about apps but when I was asked to check this one out, I was glad I did and had to share it with you. It’s called PlayTown: My Story Maker and it is a wonderful new app for kids, ages 3-9. To be honest, I had fun with it myself.

It is a simple to use app that explains everything when you enter your name. I love that you can change the facial expressions and even add fun little trinkets to your story. You can add characters and even your own image to the story. It offers a lot of story enhancements like background changes, and a number of props. Next you narrate and select the music for your story. Once you have completed your personalized story, you can share it with friends and family!

It seems to be said over and over again but, as a Mom, we know that time and money are important and we want to find the most efficient way to do things. I recently came across The Catalogue App by TheFind.com. It’s a completely free app and new way to browse through all your favorite store catalogs.  Right now is it available for iPad, Kindle Fire and Android (large screen) phones. At any time, there are roughly 95 catalog merchants featuring 175-200 issues inside the app including fashion, beauty, home, kids and more.

Unlike traditional catalogs, Catalogue consumers can pull together their own personal favorites from various brands into one location, check local store availability, take a peek at the retailers sale emails and, “using Camera View”, can even see how an item would look in their own home.

Catalogue also features store email that allows the user to obtain the most recent deals and promotions put out by the brand. News and upcoming events are also collated conveniently inside the app. Here the user can find the best deals and discounts without having to clog their regular email account with unwanted spam. read the rest of this entry »
