Tallinn and London – As the Olympic Games enter their final stretch this weekend, Zoo Champs – sports guide for kids for iPad is reducing its price from $1.99 to $.99 this Friday August 10, 2012 until Sunday August 12, 2012.
Zoo Champs – Sports Guide for Kids is featured as a New&Noteworthy Education app in the US, Canada and Australia this week. The latest review from Apps Playground called it “just the thing for newly sports-mad children this summer”.
The app features cycling tigers, rowing crocodiles, canoeing hippos, boxing kangaroos, and a leopard and a zebra fighting it out in taekwondo. This dream team of zoo favorites playfully explains over 30 sports through cute illustrations, simple animations, sound effects and clear narration.
A tap on every page opens a read-only section with fun facts and quizzes. Did you know that tennis balls were made yellow to be more visible on the first color TVs and that hippos can’t swim at all although they spent most of their lives in or near water.
One customer who has reviewed Zoo Champs – Sports Guide for Kids in the AppStore wrote “this is a great teaching tool! Fun and informative”. Another one said “this app is terrific for children who want to join in with the big kids… and learn while doing so”!
“Our aim is to offer Zoo Champs to children who have become obsessed with sports in the past few weeks and to build on this interest”, says Julia Karmo, one of app’s creators. “We also want to reach out to the educators ahead of the new school year.”
