52 Weeks of Happiness :: Week 30


Discovering an awesome App to play with Koen.

We love to play Apps on our IPad together

and I recently discovered

Disney's Pooh's Birthday Surprise App.

It is just about the sweetest thing ever.


The graphics and animation
make our favorite characters come to life.

I loved all of the Hundred Acre Friends

as a child, so it's bittersweet

to share it with my little one.

You feel like part of the gang
as you help Pooh's friends
plan a surprise party.


The interactive pages are really thrilling
for my curious two year old.

You do things like shake to clear away dust,

tilt to set clouds in motion,

swipe to see flowers bloom,
and other cool stuff.


The best part is that is educational.
It was designed to help children acquire and

reinforce early literacy and pre-math concepts.

Which is a super fancy way to say

that it's good for my Pre-schooler's brain.

We love curling up on the couch
and playing it together over and over.


Koen's favorite part
is blowing out the candle
on Pooh's Birthday cupcake
that he designed.

It's almost too much cuteness
in one place

for this mama to handle.

Fine print: I was not compensated for this review in any way.
I wrote it out of the kindness of my own heart,
because I love Pooh, Tigger,
and even grumpy ol' Eeyore so much.


Want to join me in my quest
to scout out happiness for a whole year?
Simply post a photo of something that
makes you wildly happy and tell us all about it.
Then, steal my button and include it in your post.

AWWWW I adore Pooh with Eeyore being my absolute favorite. I wish I had little ones to share that app with.. I think I would have as much fun as them.

How fun - I love that these technologies are so usable by kids and adults. And I love how you captured him in action. So cute.

That is so cool- I keep telling my hubs about all the nifty things I could do if I had one- but he's not giving in :)

Karen Mortensen said...

That looks adorable. I want one.

Very cute!

Sue said...

Can't believe how cute these interactive apps are. My little nephew has one for "The Wheels on the Bus" that is one of the neatest things ever. He could look at it for hours.


AJ said...

Looks like a great app!

DiBlue said...

Very cute write-up and pics - especially the one of him blowing out the candle!

Linda D. said...

Just an note to encourage folks who have the app to go to the app store and write a comment and rating. Good ratings will help ensure that even more high quality apps like Pooh are made!

Mama Zen said...

How neat!

Melanie said...

Love the Winnie the Pooh photos and can't wait to get the app although I have to admit since my little one is five and a half weeks, it may be more for me than for him at this point!

Thank you so much for sharing this review; that looks like an amazing app. I am a new iPad user and can't stop marveling at how user-friendly and engaging it is for younger users!!

Caroline said...

technology is awesome!!! I would LOVE an ipad. We have an apple notebook which we love but the ipad is way up on my wish list.

I love all these great pictures of Koen so engaged in the sweet little Poo app. He is just precious!
