"Together Time" is 2012's ★ BEST PARENTING APP ★ runner up in the "Best App Ever Awards" and is recommended on "Kindertown", alongside “Elmo’s ABC’s”, as a favorite for early literacy development.
The app promotes quality play time between parent and child. It is full of educational, and entertaining, HD video tutorials with tickle games, songs and rhymes that make parents the best toy in the house! Learn the rhymes from the videos we provide or record your own. We provide the content, parents create the MAGIC!
TOGETHER.... FUN AND LEARNING ARE ALWAYS AT YOUR FINGERTIPS!
These may seem like simple, fun, songs and rhymes to share with your child but they are so much more. While you and your “little one” are having fun, you are teaching critical early learning skills essential to their development; it actually makes them smarter.
It helps them master:
★ listening skills and voice intonation
★★ facial expression and emotion recognition
★★★ early literacy skills in language, math and science
★★★★ fine and gross motor development (finger movement / waving hands)
★★★★★ Trust and relationship skills and a lasting, loving bond with YOU!
Surprise your child by learning them on your own from Kathy Reid Naiman, a treasured children's entertainer. Or, enjoy the demonstration videos with Kathy and children together with your preschooler. Either way provides endless entertainment, learning and relationship building for both of you.
@ 0 to 1 year olds
Children like to hear a soft, high pitched, voice and learn facial recognition cues like happy, sad etc.
@ 1 to 3 year olds
Children enjoy singing it with you while mastering the gross motor skills; simple actions like clapping. They also adore the routine of doing the same ones (i.e. at bedtime, getting in the car, getting in the stroller etc.).
@ 4 to 8 year olds
Children learn to master their fine motor skills (i.e. fingers in a #3 shape) and enjoy doing the actions with/to you and their younger siblings (i.e. tickling your face etc.).
Parents LOVE that these wonderful songs are accessible at the touch-of-a-button, anytime and anywhere! Here are some of their 5 star reviews:
★★★★★ A fantastic app that is loved in our household by both preschooler and 2yo. Purchase is exceptionally worthwhile for the quantity and quality of rhymes. Presenter is delightful and children seem to adore her. App has taught us all rhymes we never knew as well as refreshed our memories of old favourites. Children are now doing these rhymes and giggling away even when iPad is off. Best app purchase of the year in our household for the under five's.
★★★★★ There is something truly special about using an app that is not short lived! This is magical and the benefits to the bonding between parent and child
