“KidsMag Easter Special Edition with Teo & Bianca by Portegno Apps is an interactive digital magazine for children aged 3 and above to celebrate the coming Easter Season.  It has a total of 16 pages of fun and age-appropriate activities that your child will surely enjoy.The magazine begins with a short story about Kino, the Easter egg painter. You tap on a series of pictures to hear the story. Before you start the narration, you can encourage your child to tell you the story just by looking at the pictures. On another occasion, you can tap on a picture and ask your child to locate the picture associated with the narration. What is Easter without an Easter-themed art and craft session. In KidsMag, your child can learn to create Easter bunny ears, color Easter eggs and cute bunnies, trace some more eggs and save the artwork after that. There is even a page for baking Easter Cookies. All the instructions are presented in pictorial and written form which are narrated. A favorite Easter fun activity in this app is Decorate Easter Eggs. You tap on 5 icons to change the ribbon, egg painting, extra trimmings, egg stand and background. Keep tapping on each of them and you’ll get different combinations of decorations. Fun! Some activities in KidsMag offer more than one game. For example, there are 4 different Puzzles, 3 set of Spot the Differences and 3 scenes for Carrot Search (you search for the hidden carrots in the picture and count them as you find them). Kids shake the iPad for a new game on the same page and my son thinks this is very cool but I prefer to have the option to use a more conventional way to change the game. In the hands of an overly enthusiastic and hyperactive kid, I really worry for my 6-month-old iPad!” The iMums

“KidsMag, Easter Special Edition is children’s magazine app, part of the KidsMag series of apps that my son and I really like, much akin to reading Highlights and includes fun interactions as well as engaging instructions for baking and crafts that children will enjoy. Easter-themed, this app includes a really nice story about bunnies decorating Easter eggs, gently teaching about art and inspiration in a way that both parents as well as children will appreciate. As cute as this app is with an abundance of eggs, bunnies and carrots, it’s nice to see how educational this application is as well, as sequencing of ideas is taught in a variety of ways” by Giggleapps

My 3 yr old and I really enjoyed this app. The 13 pages were full of fun, interactivity, and education. The app begins with short, sweet story of Kino which we both enjoyed. Next were 2 puzzles and 2 spot the difference games that were fun. My 5 yr old joined in the fun of baking Easter cookies, recipe included in app, nice bonus! The app continues with find the hidden carrots, the red eggs, the blue eggs and the chocolate bunnies. Also included is color matching, bunny hoping with numbers, egg math and order the sequence, all nice educational features. We had fun creating bunny ears, building a cart and coloring Easter pictures. As a parent I always enjoy the “save a photo” feature in apps. This allows me to always have a keepsake of our special time together. One other feature that was enjoyed was the “shake the device” which included 3 screen changes for each game” by Iheartthisapp.

This issue follows the same pattern so prepare yourself for some vocabulary and adjectives activities. Magnifico! Is that all?

“KidsMag Issue 1 is a very nice iPad application for preschool-aged kids, structured much like a magazine would be for their age group. This app revolves around Teo and Bianca, a brother and sister team who teach a lot about some of children’s favorite things. With an impressive amount to look at and interact with, this app really does remind me of a kids’ magazine such as “Highlights” and I found some segments very informative and well written” – by GiggleApps http://www.giggleapps.com/reviews/kidsmag-issue-01-review/

“It has received excellent ratings and was already picked by Apple’s staff on the App Store!” – by Apps4Kids http://www.iphone4kids.net/2011/06/22/the-packed-kidsmag/
