Let me preface this post by stating that I do love winter. But the weather is cold here. Dangerously cold. The frigid temperature is just a reality of winter in Minnesota. Unfortunately it’s so cold outside at the moment, my boys can’t even go outside to play. They might dream of sledding and making snowmen, but instead we are cozy and snug inside for the time being. A mom had better have a few tricks up her sleeve to keep little ones entertained during this indoor season. I must admit one of my secrets to sanity is iPad apps. I have no doubt that warm weather and cold weather moms will both agree that an engaging app can be a lifesaver at times.
New for iPad/iPhone is the educational TV series Gombby´s Green Island. This colorful app video is perfect for the littlest of users. Sure, there are plenty of games available for my 8 year old. But I frequently have a harder time finding suitable content for my three and five year olds. They want iPad time too. It’s only fair, right? But obviously I don’t want them viewing videos or games that are not age appropriate.
Here is a summary of the show-
Gombby’s Green Island app is free and includes three full episodes that you can download to watch anytime, anywhere, even when no connectivity is available- love that! Additional Gombby’s Green Island episodes are available for a charge. There is also a Gombby Stickers app (that is also free) and offers fun activities with the Green Island characters.
- Watch the adventures of Gombby’s Green Island on your iPhone/iPad
- Engaging and Educational adventures that your children will love
- Fully available in 3 different languages – English, Spanish and Portuguese
- Download and store your favorite episodes to watch on the go
- Additional episodes available through in-App purchase
- All the stories are family friendly and are reviewed by a professional team
The sticker app currently features a camping theme as visible in the picture above. My boys had a lot of fun creating their own scenes, but of course it is the videos themselves that are their favorite.
Check out Gombby if you own an iPhone or iPad, it’s free! Personally, I love being able to download an app for free and then having the possibility of adding additional content if I want.
