**MadeForMums Toy Awards 2016 Top Play App - Bronze Award**
Timmy and his friends Ruffy and Otus from the TV series Timmy Time are back in our English language learning app! In 'Timmy's Learning New Skills', we bring you more games to challenge your child’s cognitive skills and help language development.
The app is designed for kids aged three to six learning English. If English is your first language, the app could be suitable for children as young as two years old.
Play three exciting games in this educational app to help your child learn words, phrases, and cognitive skills such as identifying and sorting.
• NEW 'I-Spy' - find hidden objects to learn new vocabulary, identify objects and boost concentration. As children progress objects get harder to find, requiring serious focus!
• 'Magic Box' - place items in the box in and learn how to categorise and organise items by type and colour. The game gets more and more challenging when we introduce multiple boxes so that children learn advanced sorting skills.
• 'Rub-a-Dub' – listen to the narrator and swipe away feathers, buttons and paint to identify objects hidden beneath. The game starts with single words such as ‘pear’ and ‘pencil’ and builds up to complex phrases such as ‘basketball hoop’ and ‘three green paintbrushes’ so children are challenged as they advance.
All the games are designed to develop a range of skills including hand-eye coordination, concentration, and motor and cognitive skills. Children are guided by an audio narration in all the games and are encouraged to tap, swipe and drag in all the games
As children advance in the app they earn lots of rewards including new themed stickers and video clips of Timmy and his friends.
