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 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)
