We all know how important it is to let your kids ‘play’ with your iPhone or iPad – there are so many excellent educational apps out there afterall. But one thing we as parents don’t want back is a sticky, orange juice filled device thereafter. Well, fortunately Griffin have extended their range of protection products for your precious devices for your precious little ones. Take a look at these…
Crayola Trace & Draw
Designed for use with the free Trace & Draw App, the Crayola Trace & Draw is both a protective case and art station in one. The accessory and app combo turn the iPad 2 into an animated drawing and colouring activity centre for young artists. When combined with the App, young artists have more than 35 different characters to trace along with fun animations and activities that provide hours of creative play.
Surrounded by a shatter-resistant shell, the iPad 2 paired with Trace and Draw becomes an interactive art centre. Recommended for ages 3 and up, the Trace & Draw includes a black Crayola fineline felt-tip and 50 sheets of pre-sized tracing paper. A durable static peel screen protector shields the iPad 2’s Multi Touch display from smudges and fingerprints and a sliding drawer is perfect for storing the Crayola felt-tip when not in use.
This product retails for £29.99/$47.99 and you can purchase it directly from Apple
The Crayola Trace & Draw App is available for free from the App Store and you can download it here.
Available in blue and pink, the Woogie 2 is the answer to the question on every child’s lips – “can I play with your iPhone?” With thousands of interactive books and games available to choose from on the App Store, the Woogie 2 provides parents with the ideal solution for child-friendly access to their Apple device. It features an integrated pocket which velcroes shut to secure iOS devices keeping them safe from harm. A touch-through screen protector allows children to choose movies, apps or music with the swipe of a finger, and the Woogie 2 can either be propped up on its fuzzy legs or rested comfortably in a child’s lap for viewing.
The Woogie 2 retails for $19.95/£12.95 and you can order it directly from Griffin here.
Griffin Crayola Paint & Create App
The Crayola Paint & Create App brings hours of activities, coloring, and painting to the iPad. The App provides children hours of play time with more than 40 activities, including games, puzzles, mazes, colour-by-numbers, dot-to-dots, and more. When kids use Crayola Paint & Create, their fingers become coloured pencils, paint brushes, crayons or markers. They bring colouring pages to life, with motion and sound effects that add to the fun. Kids can colour in animated pages, or generate their own works of art from a blank canvas. All artwork can be saved to the gallery, e-mailed, uploaded to Facebook, or printed out.
The Crayola Paint & Create app can also be used in conjunction with the Griffin iMarker™ included with the Crayola ColorStudio HD. The press of a button turns on iMarker mode, enabling the Crayola Paint & Create app to recognise input from the iMarker rather than from finger swipes.
