Learning to tell time can be a very daunting task for young kids, especially since a clock can appear as a very imposing and complicated device that is supposed to help a child grasp the concept of seconds, minutes, hours, and years — what child wouldn’t be intimidated. A wonderful iphone app that helps kids learn the time concept in an interactive and comfortable way is Tillie’s Time Shop, by My Turn Mobile. This kids’ education app melds a story about Tillie and Sam (her helpful mouse friend) throughout a workday at Tillie’s Time Shop, with an introduction to the time concept. There are plenty of interactions on each page and can be found by tapping around to discover them all.
During parts of the book, there are time-telling exercises that present low-pressure and fun interactions (with lots of silly sounds, as well as appropriate time-clock sounds), to keep your child engaged and interested. Learning how to tell time is an important lifeskill that shouldn’t be intimidating, and it appears that with Tillie’s Time Shop your child should be eager to learn and able to tell time in no time at all. As a side note there is an iPad version called Tillie’s Time Shop HD that sells for $2.99 in the iTunes App Store. For more iPhone video app reviews. Crazy Mike
