Tablets have become a great learning tool and source of entertainment for both kids and adults. Last year I was introduced to Tiggly and their amazing Shapes toy. We featured Tiggly Shapes last year in our holiday gift guide. We loved them so much that it was a no brainer to include the Tiggly Counts counting toy in our holiday gift guide for 2014. Tiggly apps recently launched in the Google Play store for Android, including the Kindle Fire! Now every family with a tablet can join in the fun that Tiggly apps and toys have to offer.
Tiggly Counts is the first math toy designed for preschoolers on the tablet. Each set of Counts comes with 5 colorful counting toys, a felt carrying pouch, and three FREE award-winning apps that teach important early math concepts like addition, number line, and counting in a fun and tangible way.
Now that you got the facts let me tell you how awesome this toy is for kids. This is seriously an amazing teaching tool disguised as a toy! After playing with Tiggly Counts for about 20 minutes my 6-year-old asked me for a notebook and pencil. Needless to say, I was curious what he was going to use it for since he was enjoying tablet time at the moment. To my amazement, I watched him complete a math problem on the app with his Tiggly Counts toy pieces and then write out the math equation he had just solved in the notebook. He continued to do this until he completed a page full of math problems. Tiggly Counts keeps my boys fully engaged. They enjoy using the toys with the apps as well. My boys will even play together sometimes and take turns on who gets to use the next toy piece in the app. I am so impressed with this toy and the apps that can be used with it. It is such a great value considering all of the apps are free!
When I walked into our office to check on my 3-year-old playing Tiggly Counts, I could not help but giggle at the sight of his “work station.” If you have any Team Umizoomi fans in your house, you are well aware that the three tiny super heroes sitting on the desk have mighty math powers. Apparently, he thought his math friends would enjoy Tiggly Counts as well!
Math has never been more fun!
Now if I could just get my kids to quit doing math problems so he can go to bed. I hope I never stop having this problem!
