Woolly and Tig is a favourite programme with my two children. Both my 3 and 5 yr old are always keen to watch it when it’s on and love the DVD! So when we got the chance to try the Woolly and Tig App, I was eager to see what it was like.
With free play where you can tickle Woolly, stroke him and count with him or structured play where there are 10 activities to do with Woolly such as wash him, brush his teeth or help him get dressed, there is a good selection of things to do. Mister B who is 3 loved this app, his favourite activities being washing muddy Woolly, or fun in the snow where you get to create a snowman. Miss M who is 5 loved to help her younger brother but is at the top age range for this and there wouldn’t be enough to occupy her and keep her engaged.
As a pre school app this is perfect for getting young children to practice doing everyday things and getting into the habit of doing them daily. For example it’s good to get children to brush Woolly’s teeth, then go and brush their own.
The app has bright, clear, simple images to help engage children and is simple to use, my 3 year old was able to work out how to do most things with little instruction. It was great to see him excited about finishing the tasks and feeling a sense of achievement.
Another option on the app is to schedule times to do things and the children will be reminded by the app when they need to do certain tasks.
The Woolly and Tig app is available from the iTunes store for £2.99.
