iTunes giveaway!

Congrats Mom2Micael! You're the lucky winner! Email me your address! Thanks!

I don't know about your children, by my boys, who are 5 and 2, have almost no problems at all with using mine and my husband's iPhone and iPad. They're so young, and yet, they're very familiar with touch screen technology as well as finding the things they're looking for on our devices - such as games, stories, and songs! I wonder what the future has in store for our children, who are already so tech-savvy? Good things, I'm sure!

My 5 year old loves the app 'Elements' on our iPad, and he certainly knows more about the periodic table of elements than I do! He also loves playing the game Memory on the iPad and he has a few favourite apps on the iPhone, as well. My 2 year old loves the app Talking Carl - he laughs and laughs!

Now we have something new to add to the list of fun apps our boys love! I was selected to be part of the My Living Stories Blog Tour, which is amazing, since like I mentioned, by boys love using our iPhone's! My husband always downloads fun apps for them, and now we are adding this one to our list, too.

The My Living Stories apps combine beautiful artwork, narration and interactive features in an easy to use platform that is perfect for preschoolers to read along all on their own! It's a great way to entertain the kids on road trips, while teaching them to read, too. Bonus! Interactive sounds and animation bring your children's favourite stories to life - it's very neat! Another amazing feature? The ability to record your OWN voice to go along with the story - how cool is that?

Some of the My Living Stories include The Princess and the Pea, The Tortoise and the Hare, Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. My oldest son loves Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks and the Three Bears!

How about a chance for you win a $25 gift card to iTunes?

All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me which My Living Stories story you think your children would love the most.

Bonus entry: What do you think the best apps for children are? Let me know in a seperate comment!

This iTunes giveaway is open to Canadian residents only, and I'll pick a winner on August 9th!
Readers may enter the contest on multiple blogs but are only eligible to win one iTunes gift card as part of the My Living Stories contest.

Disclosure: I am participating in the My Living Stories program by Mom Central on behalf of Decode Entertainment. I received 3 free apps and a gift card as a thank you for my participation. The opinions on this blog are my own.

  1. Well heck, I'd love to enter! :-)

    My little guy loves story time. I think he'd most like Little Red Riding Hood, since there's a Big Bad Wolf and some drama/action.
