TVO launches five new educational apps for kids for the BlackBerry PlayBook

TVO Educational Apps

I'm always on the lookout for quality educational apps for my kids, especially my daughter. She loves the BlackBerry PlayBook, so anything I can find to help reinforce the subjects she learns in school is great, and if they are fun and keep her engaged, then it's a win. TVOKids and Research In Motion just launched five new educational apps for the PlayBook, with three free games for ages 2-5, and two paid games for ages 6-11.

  • TVOKids Alphabet Goop  (Ages 2-5) - Helps kids recognize and match letters of the alphabet. (Free)
  • TVOKids Get Growing  (Ages 2-5) - Teaches kids how and why plants grow. (Free)
  • TVOKids Sign Match (Ages 2-5) - Helps kids learn about important signs they encounter every day. (Free)
  • TVOKids Spelling Fleas (Ages 6-11) - Asks kids to fill in the missing letters in words, find the correct spelling of words, identify verbs and select pictures to match sentences. ($1.99)
  • TVOKids Space Trek Galaxy (Ages 6-11) - Strengthens kids' deductive and logical reasoning skills. ($1.99)
