The Tiggly apps and supporting toys work directly with the tablet touch screen - no batteries, bluetooth or anything else is required.
Tiggly Shapes is for younger children aged 2-5. Featuring 4 toys and 3 learning apps this set for younger children teaches shapes and strengthens fine motor skills and creativity.
Tiggly Maths is for children aged around 3-7. A set of 5 toys and 3 learning apps covering counting, addition and numberline - Tiggly Chef, Cardtoons and Addventure.
Small children cannot 'count in their head', and need visual prompts to help. The toys are groups of squares from 1-5 which your child can use to work out some really quite complicated maths that they couldn't do without somehow counting objects in front of them. The squares design allows the child to instantly see the difference between quantities, and is a really handy tool for teaching number bonds - the basic knowledge that underpins our maths skills (eg 3+2=5).
Tiggly Words is designed for children aged 4-8 and is a set of 5 vowel shaped toys and 3 learning apps - Tiggly Doctor, Tiggly Submarine and Tiggly Tales.
This set teaches the fundamentals of language, covering long & short vowels, phonics, nouns & verbs & word building. This basic knowledge underpins everything we learn about reading, writing, spelling and sentence construction, and will help your child understand the 'rules' of language from the start. This will help them not only as they learn how to read, write and spell, but throughout their lives - for example whenever they meet a new word, or wish to get across a complicated message.
Tiggly Shapes, Tiggly Maths and Tiggly Words are all available from Amazon, and from tomorrow morning (Friday 24th July) also be available on QVC. All 3 sets have a selection of languages available and have an rrp of £24.99.
