‘Twas some nights before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that some Octagon cards would be there…
I have a toddler who can work an iPad like a teenager – It originally started out him watching a few youtube videos while having his dinner, then a few games and now he bloody loves the thing. A recent study suggests that 72% of Irish children use the internet daily meaning Aidan is not alone in his love for technology.
A few weeks ago when Octagon got in touch with me and asked if
Aidan would like to review their new 4d interactive alphabet cards. Aidan has yet to venture into the world of words so anything that might help him is always of interest to me, especially when it is digital because it will hold his attention like nothing else.
Octaland 4D cards are alphabet cards that teach kids about several different professions, from Albert the Astronaut to Matt the Magician and Zack the Zookeeper. Each character moves and looks at the screen while staying true to their profession. For example, Albert the Astronaut hovers a few inches above the card as if he were in space.
As well as the 4D images there is a 2D section where the child can flick through each character and learn more about their job.
Octagon also have an Animal card range. For me, this was utterly jaw dropping! As I already knew what to expect from playing with the occupation series I jumped straight into the animal cards expecting a similar cartoon type graphic. However, the animal graphics are extremely realistic looking and acting – I literally spent an entire nap time playing around with the animal series before even showing it to Aidan.
These cards would make a great stocking filler for children – it makes learning interesting by making simple flashcards come to life in their hands. I think these will get a lot of use in our house over the next few years.
I have a set of the Octaland 4D Occupation series and Animal series to giveaway to you! This competition is open worldwide, simply follow the steps below to enter. Good luck!
