With Nate working in the education field for the last 10 years and two young boys at home who love to learn, education is a huge part of our lives. We are also no stranger to technology driven learning environments, so we are always on the hunt for quality learning programs.
Disney just released a new learning brand created for families with children ages 3-8. Disney Imagicademy apps aims to engage and enrich children through the power of imagination and creativity.
The first app available is called Mickey’s Magical Math World, a fun-filled space adventure that explores concepts within a fully immersive playground of magical experiences.
Children can explore shapes in Mickey’s Rocket Build, play with numbers and patterns in Minnie’s Robot Playground, learn early number concepts with Donald’s Alien Number Line and experiment with shapes, patterns and sorting skills with Goofy.
Disney Imagicademy: Parents is an all-new free app within Disney Imagicademy. See the red parents button above? Just click that and sign in to gather resources and ideas for engaging with your children, like printables or parenting articles. Disney Imagicademy: Parents is also connected to your child’s progress in Mickey’s Magical Math World where they can see their child’s latest creations and even share accomplishments with friends and family.
Mickey’s Magical Math World
Once a child completes so many levels within the learning app, a child is rewarded with fun pins. All children love to be rewarded for a job well done!
My 3 and 6-year-old boys were excited to try the new app. We tested each learning game together. They really enjoyed seeing all of their favorite Disney characters within the app. I liked that each app continues to change as your child learns and plays. The more my 3-year-old played Mickey’s Rocket Build, the more learning possibilities emerged. He was able to change the shapes of the rockets, later he opened up new locked areas to expand on his creations, and even earned more rockets to build and use within the learning app.
Minnie’s Robot Playground is a favorite for both boys. There you can create a robot and then take it out on the playground to do certain learning activities, even build sand castles!
Donald’s Alien Number Line makes the kids laugh. There they use their counting skills to send aliens over to bop Donald out of his lounging hammock. Daisy wants him to get back to work and the kids are there to help!
My 3-year-old is enjoying the app the most. He has played every day since downloading it to the iPad. My favorite part is of course the learning aspect of the game and how enjoyable it is for my sons.
Disney Imagicademy apps are available exclusively for iPad and can currently be found on Apple’s App Store in the Kids, Education and Entertainment categories. Mickey’s Magical Math World is free to download and offers payable upgrade options within the app. Disney Imagicademy: Parents is also free to download. If you have a child within the age range of 3-8, I highly recommend checking out these fantastic apps. They are a wonderful learning resource for little minds!
