I have been looking for the perfect Christmas present for my princess and I think I found it. I decided, this year, I would not spend hundreds of dollars on game systems, game cartridges and all the other interactive toys that will be obsolete by next Christmas because something bigger and better is on the market.
This year I was going to incorporate our iPad into the Christmas gift giving and I set off to see if I could find some games that are both, educational and fun for my 4 year old. She loves our iPad and watches movies on it before bed or on the go, she loves the App’s that she can play, so why buy any other system, right?
I’ve heard online about a company called #CypherKidsClub and found out that they had 3 amazing interactive 3D Cards to tell your little one all about Wild Animals, the ABC or Numbers. I loved the idea and that no 3D Glasses would be needed to see the 3D action and you would also be able to interact with your objects. Their products are being sold across the Nation at your local Target, exclusively and retail for $29.99.
It took me a bit to find the Cypher Kids Club products at our local Target, I finally walked over to the electronic section and to my surprise found 2 rows full of iPad Accessories and iPad App Accessories; who knew? I had no idea that there are now actual rows dedicated to the iPad Generation. I love it!!
Since I had my princess with me, I decided to let her pick her own Christmas present, shhh… she has no idea it’s her Christmas present, gotta love a 4 year old; LOL. My Princess had a choice of Wild Animal Adventures, Letters or Numbers; She decided on the Wild Animal Adventures. Boy, I’m sure glad I had her with me, I had a hard time choosing and probly would have bought all three.
After our shopping trip to Target and our weekly errands, my Princess was overjoyed and couldn’t wait to get home to try the new 3D cards on the iPad. Set up was very easy, once you have the App installed (App can be downloaded through the App Store for Wild Animal Adventures, Letters and Numbers or use the Code on the box to load it), you are ready to play. Just pick a card that you like to explore and you are in for a fun treat.
In the Wild Animal Adventure set, there are 18 cards; each card has a different animal to explore and interact with. Scan the back of the Animal card and make your card come to life. Have a Dolphin jump around on your kitchen table; a Giraffe sit on your hand, or a Monkey jumping from branch to branch in your very own play room.
The possibilities are endless and the learning has just begun. While your little one enjoys the super cool 3D animations, a cool “Did you know” explanation about the animal of choice is being presented in a very soft and comforting voice. There is also time to interact with your animals, like if you touch the monkey, he will jump to another branch; or if you tap the Giraffe, they will interact with each other. There is something new to see, hear and explore every time your little one comes back to the animals; trust me. This are only 18 cards with 18 different animals, BUT it will not get bored anytime soon! I’ve played with the monkey card 4 times and every time found something new to explore.
Now that we are totally hooked on the Cypher Kids Club Cards, I already send out e-mails to Grandparents to get the additional sets for the Princess for Christmas. She will have a lot of fun with the entire series.
For now, I have to sneak her set away when she sleeps and hide it till Christmas morning. She will be so surprised when she opens up her presents. The cards are totally worth the money and the trip to Target to pick them up; Tip – Grab them on your Black Friday Shopping trip, you know you will be there already. The cards are high quality and large cards that can even be handled by a 3 year old without a problem.
If you have an iPod Touch 4th generation (or newer), iPhone4 (or newer) or an iPad2 (or newer), this Cypher Kids Club Card set should be on your Christmas list, that’s for sure. Best part, no internet connection needed once the App is installed, letting your little one interact with the Animals (letters or Numbers) even while on the road for lots of hours of fun.
The graphics as you can see, seem very real. I just love the entire concept and something that doesn’t require you to buy more refills, batteries or add on down the road; all you do is load the App and the fun begins, over and over; LOVE IT!!! I even learned a fact or two from the cards.
For more information about Cypher Kids Club and their wonderful products, be sure to check them out on the Web or like them on Facebook or Twitter. They are looking for new friends, being a new company they love to be your friend, too. I’ve also created a Google Plus album to show you where the Cypher Kids Club products are located in Target, be sure to check it out. Lots more picture of the App as well.
I would love to hear your thoughts; and can’t wait to hear all about your little ones interaction with the new 3D Cypher Kids Club cards.
