Sparky’s Birthday Surprise is an app for ages 2-6 that you can download from iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and Nook. It is about Fire Safety, but made into a fun story as some of Sparky’s friends throw him a birthday party!
I was able to download the app on my iPad for my kids. This morning I told them I had a surprise and that I had a new book and some activities we could do on the iPad. Well around here that is a special treat so we had a little party in my daughter’s room on the bed and chose the “Read to Me” for Sparky’s Birthday Surprise. My kids are 2 and 4 and they loved it! The story was very interactive and while the words are being read they are highlighted along with little stars appearing on the screen to try and get the kids to touch the screen so different things will happen. Examples are that the smoke alarm would sound when touched, or the garage door on the fire station would open, and the dog would bark when you put your finger on it.
My kids were very attentive to the story and most of all I loved it because they were learning about Fire Safety in a fun way without making it something to be scared about! In the app you can also choose to play games which of course we chose to do at the end of the story. Those were also fantastic. My daughter loved the game where you could pick the shapes “Birthday Shapes” they were saying and then the dog would put his hand up for a high five when she chose the right shape and she would hit the iPad with her hand for a high five. She just couldn’t do it enough! Plus my little guy who is 2 wanted to do it too ;)
This is a picture of my daughter getting ready to high-five!
Plus we also checked out the Painting. You can paint a picture with paint, chalk, spray paint, etc and even choose your picture. My daughter is a little drawer so she loved this part too. She’s already asked a few times today to read that Sparky book again and play the games and draw. That is a pretty good indication she loved it!
