Babies are fascinated by pretty much everything going. It’s no wonder too. After all, the world is an exciting and fun place to be in when you’ve never seen it before! While some technology is a little mature for little ones and the likes of Angry Birds might be out of reach for a few years yet, that doesn’t mean that babies can’t enjoy the iPad as much as any adult.
The latest app to help babies enjoy touch based interaction is Baby’s Musical Hands. It’s an app that features 15 brightly colored squares that babies can touch and interact with. Tapping a red square makes a drum sound while yellow plays piano notes and blue squares play a guitar noise. It’s the kind of fun that babies will instantly love, feeling that they can change so much with a simple tap of the screen. Every now and then, a touch produces a rainbow burst of stars also which will no doubt cause a giggle of happiness from any baby trying it out. The overall mixture of audio and visual feedback is bound to cause delight as well as inform babies just how useful interacting with things is.
Full multi-touch support is there so that the iPad can never be overwhelmed by the baby wanting to touch in a few different places. For a more quiet experience, parents are also able to either use the iPad mute switch or turn the volume down so that the baby can continue to enjoy the visual joys without the sounds that come with it.
Having been developed by a father, Owen Goss of Streaming Colour Studios, Baby’s Magical Hands is geared perfectly towards babies as they learn to interact with the world around them.
The app is available now for the iPad.
