weeLove: A Shape Sorter for Your iPad Addict


Get Physical with Tiggly


You want your toddler to play with the fancy shape sorter you picked out to help develop her fine motor skills.  Your toddler just wants to play with your iPad.

Find some middle ground with Tiggly, which brings together physical play and digital learning.  Children eighteen months and up can use the brightly colored, block-like shapes to interact with iPad apps like Tiggly Safari, which turns circles, triangles, squares, and stars into wild animals and sea creatures. Designed by educators and tested weekly in a pre-school classroom, it passed the toddler test in our house with two enthusiastic thumbs up.  And while it’s still technically screentime, as parents, we like the balance of bells-and-whistles-delight and old school imaginative play.

Congratulations… you’ve just made the first in a lifetime of compromises with your child.
