We recently renewed our Disneyland Annual passports. This means 365 days of Disney fun. But with that fun also comes the car trips to the park and the days we stay overnight for 2 days of fun. When we set out for these kind of trips lucky for us we have a tablet or our smartphones so Mia can sometime keep herself occupied with a game.
Her newest find is the new Mickey’s Magical Arts World. This fun app is packed full of so much details and activities to explore. All of our kids, ages 3, 6, 9 have fun including us parents because there is a lot to do. The kids get to help Mickey and his friends have a blast in a highly creative and imaginative land, letting them explore a list of creative arts of drawing, costume & movies, materials, design, and music.
Disney Imagicademy is great for our kids who are Disney fans, so it’s good to let them have fun and learn at the same time. The functions that can be controlled from recording tempo, pitch, and even the melody to record to the fine drawing app, it was fun for them to really interact and tune their thinking and motor skills.
Highly Interactive Learning Apps
Our kids have so much fun even 10 days later with all their creative videos, music, pictures, designs and more. They get to also do it all along with great Disney characters like Mickey and Minnie. Mia and Brooklin both have fun experimenting with lines, shapes and texture in Mickey’s Drawing Studio. This was a great Disney drawing app for all our kids.
We also had a lot of fun playing the music of course with Mickey’s Musical Marching Band. The kids got to create their own marching band of instruments. They also were able to record their musical recreating while controlling the rhythm, tempo, patterns and melodies. There are even slots to save the music.
Mia had fun with Minnie experimenting building design. She is learning her shapes and had fun with working on placement and symmetry, placing items to balance out tall building weights, and working with proportions on creating new homes for all the characters.
Taking Disney characters from timeless classics that we remember as kids ourselves, we all had fun with Mickey’s Magical Arts World. All the apps were created with experts using research and curriculum to stimulate new learning for kids, even while they are have fun! We don’t let our kids play too long on the gadgets, but when we do its good knowing they are learning too!
Disney Imagicademy is an entire learning program with over 30 app-based experiences. Magical Math World is another learning app with more experiences and for the back-to-school 2015 season, there will be books and other learning products available for purchase in store and online. The apps and products are all created to focus on early childhood development including math, creative arts, science, reading and social and emotional skills.
