Discounts and Updates that you don't want to miss! Feb. 14, 2014


Angry Birds on sale SAVE 40%

In case you are one of the few people on the planet who hasn't tried it, Angry Birds and its sequels are far and away the best selling and most popular apps since the app stores opened. The premise is that a bunch of pigs stole the Angry Birds eggs and they're out for revenge. The player must fling the birds (via slingshot) into the structures built by the pigs to destroy them and there are lots of power-ups and other fun things as the game progresses.

Cut The Rope: Experiments on sale SAVE 40%

The original Cut the Rope is one of the most popular games in app history with over 100 million downloads. My kids and wife love the app, including my six-year old who can't get very far by herself but still loves to play.

The object of the game is to feed a little green alien named Om Nom the candy he craves. This can only be done through cutting a series of ropes in the right order and at the right times. It is classified as a game, but I don't think that does it justice as it takes A LOT of thought and trial and error to get through the app. It's not ABC-123 educational but I still put it in that category.

Angry Birds: Star Wars II on sale save 40%

Angry Birds Star Wars II is a physics-based game that is highly addictive, and a great way to satisfy any Star Wars cravings. Why bother with a sequel, apart from the fact that children love Angry Birds Star Wars so much? Because Rovio Entertainment has taken game play to the next level and have introduced Telepod Toys. By placing the telepod toy on the stand on the device's camera, it is teleported into the game itself and is ready to launch. To see which devices are compatible with telepods, follow this link: Angry Birds Telepods.

Wubbzy's ABC Learn and Play on sale save 50%

There is something really captivating about Wubbzy for children. I am not sure if it is the catchy tune, the fact that he is yellow (research shows that characters are immediately identified and remembered more if they are yellow, e.g. Winnie The Pooh, Pikachu, etc.), or something else. Whatever it is, it works and your child will not notice s/he is learning while playing with Wubbzy. This app has the added bonus of aligning with common core standards!

Fraggle Friends Forever on sale save 50%

Let's face it. A Fraggle Rock app is worth the download just to hear the theme song. Well, for me at least. The Fraggle Friends Forever app is a puzzle/book app where children put together puzzles which reveal an interactive story page. The free version has four free puzzles that can be completed on three different skill levels. The full version has the complete storybook, Marjory the Trash Heap’s recycling game, a radish patch maze, and coloring pages. The free version doesn't have a ton of content but it's definitely worth downloading and trying. The full version is a really nice app.

Strawberry Shortcake Berry Best Friends on sale save 50%

Strawberry Shortcake Berry Best Friends ($2.99) is a story app that's packed full of interactive options (and quite a funky soundtrack). It's the first-ever talent show and Strawberry and her friends are all aiming to win the competition. Blueberry Muffin is writing a play, Cherry is practicing her duet with Strawberry, and Orange Blossom is brushing up on her juggling skills. My personal favorite is Lemon Meringue who is creating giraffes and penguins out of her own hair as her talent is... animal hairstyles!

Despicable Me: Minion Rush

**Celebrate Valentine’s Day with an exclusive Google Play promo**

Despicable Me 2 is available on Android! Let's just bottom line it: The best part of the first movie was the minions. They're up to their usual tricks in part two and Gameloft has released a free app in celebration of the new movie release. If you've played any of the Temple Run apps, this is a similar game. The player's minion runs forward at a rapid rate and must be moved left and right and also jump, fly, dodge while gathering bananas. My 9-year old son has the iPad version and loves it. Minion Rush is one of his current favorite apps.

Turbo Fast

**Turbo FAST is celebrating Valentine’s Day with Google Play! Check out the new Valentine’s racer shell, garage decor, and 2 exclusive themed race tracks!**

Turbo is a new movie from Dreamworks Animation that will be released on July 17. It's the story of a snail who wants to be fast...and he gets his wish! In Turbo FAST, players can take control of the main character (Turbo) in an excellent Mario Kart style racing game. My nine-year old absolutely loves it and and I recommend it for a wide range of ages, including adults.

Nemo's Reef

**Love is all around in Nemo’s Reef! Celebrate Valentine's Day with these lovely Google Play™ exclusives: the pink ornamental plant, rare pink Trumpet fish, and a special 70% Family Pack bonus!**

Nemo's Reef is for older kids and plays as a simulator of all the goings-on at the reef, including creating different combinations of plants and decorations to attract more exotic fish. Dory, Gill, Bloat, Bubbles and others from the movie are also there! Did anyone notice all the creatures with special needs when they watched this movie? I didn't! I just saw a bunch of sea animals going about their business, doing ocean stuff. It was pointed out to me later how there were so many fish with extra needs, but it just wasn't made an issue of. Even more reason to love Nemo.

Words of Wonder

**Happy Valentine's Day, wordsmiths! For a limited time exclusively on Google Play, enjoy a 30% discount on boost bundles.**

Candy Crush is so 2013. Why not start the new year with a new addictive app? Words of Wonder is a fabulously presented tile clearing game that involves making words of three or more letters. Each level has set goals (make 10 words for example) that need to be completed within certain limits (set number of moves for example). There are currently 165 levels to achieve with the possibility of more to come in the future. Fantastic for children who are learning to spell and also for older kids and adults. Another great free Disney delight.
