Parents, You Are Going To Love The New
Disney App- Disney Imagicademy
This morning I had the pleasure of attending the kick off of something I have only heard dribs and drabs about along the way. Disney Imagicademy was unveiled to a intimate group of Disney media and bloggers at the Intrepid Museum in NYC.
Being a mom of three and a former teacher who spent twenty years making sure children were engaged in their learning made me chomp at the bit to find out any information on this new Disney venture. Of course Disney has a way of making learning fun and creating ways for children to play as they learn. Go Disney! You are very much my hero!
We were graced with Boby Chapek, president of Disney Consumer Products. He shared the background of coming up with Disney Imagicademy by serving parents needs for apps to progress with levels. It looks like Disney has it with the upcoming apps for sure. We are at an age now where children are learning from apps and parents are looking for quality!
Disney Imagicademy will debut on December 11th with the ipad app, Mickey’s Magical Math World which is loaded with math activities- sorting, counting, etc. There are add on activities that range from $4.99-$19.99 for the complete set. Frozen fans can rejoice, too. Our Anna, Elsa and friends will soon be helping our children understand and gain more knowledge in the Science department! There is also an extension of interactive toys and books in the works.
You can also follow along as a parent with your own partner app on your device. There you can check in our the progress of your little one and even give a digital high five from miles away! Yay! This app will also suggest offline activities to complete together or as a family. What I loved the most about the entire program of apps is that it is curriculum driven. That is music to my ears as a mom and teacher.
PS. An Mickey Mouse Smart Toy is coming, too in 2015! He will interact with the apps! Go Disney.
No wonder we all love you, Disney! Check it out!
