With all the electronic distractions we have these days how do you capture your kids attention and help them learn? How about using that technology to teach your kids on a whole new level?
We’ve been using flashcards to keep our kids to learn as well as some great apps for our iPad and iPods. It’s been fun, but this last week we’ve had a neat opportunity to check out a hot new product that combines the two into one of the coolest learning resources that this mom has ever seen.
The Cypher Kids Club takes unique learning flash cards and combines them with a great app that turns these cards into an interactive, 3D learning experience. These cards interact with an easy to use app that you can download on your iPhone, iPod or iPad and is an amazing way to make learning fun. We were recently asked to go purchase some Cypher Kids Club cards and try them out.
I admit, at first, we weren’t sure what to make of these cards since we had never seen them in person. They’re sold at select Target stores and we found them at a Super Target on a recent road trip.
We found them in electronics with the iPad and iPod accessories. The kids were intrigued by the packaging and we couldn’t wait to go home and try out these cool interactive flash cards. It was tough to choose which set, but we decided on the animals since we though both our 8 year old and 3 year old would enjoy that set the most.
To get the cards to work, we downloaded the Cypher Kids Club app which are free and there are no additional costs to download. We also registered on the Cypher Kids Club website which had helpful information and tips to improve the experience. When you use the cards together in conjunction with their app, the result is an amazing learning experience. Each card in our set magically became a 3 dimensional creature that interacted with the kids as the narrator explained information and facts about that animal.
Created by Cypher Entertainment these cards use what’s called an Augmented Reality where they combine the 3D graphics, interactive learning and cool facts about the animals to make these learning cards lots of fun for all ages. Everyone in our family loved them including myself and my husband. They’re neat for learning at any age, and would especially be a great resource for educators and homeschoolers.
The kids have been asking for these cards regularly since we purchased them. They love the information and interacting with the animals. The biggest fan of them by far is my little man who says the cards make him “Happy, Happy, Happy!”.
Overall these are an amazing way to combine a tried and true learning tool of flashcards with today’s amazing technology to help kids learn on an interactive level. Our kids loved these and are already asking us to purchase the additional sets. These cards would be a fun and educational gift to give any kids on your shopping list this holiday season.
