SumahoMAMA Announces New Educational App For Kids: Touch ‘n Sing

sumahomama_1365986492_600SumahoMAMA, the creators of bestselling educational children’s applications, today announced the availability of its latest fun, learning app, Touch ‘n Sing. The new app joins SumahoMAMA’s growing family of entertaining and educational applications designed for children, adding a fresh layer of interaction thanks to its sing along feature.

Built on a foundation of music and song play, Touch ‘n Sing was designed to be enjoyed by children ages 2-6 with a wide range of learning aptitudes and backgrounds. Younger kids can have fun listening to the music, learning rhythm and engaging in interactive play. Older children, who recognize and read letters, can view the song lyrics to sing along with and enjoy games that involve the alphabet. With four different interactive modes of music play to choose from plus a wide variety of educational activities, kids of all ages can enjoy a sense of accomplishment as they play.

After experiencing great success in the Japanese market, we are thrilled to bring our children’s learning apps stateside,” said Yoshiho Sakimura, co-founder, SumahoMAMA. “We’ve worked to extensively update the app for the US which now has more gameplay and additional features so a wider range of children can enjoy the app.

Features of Touch ‘n Sing include:

Enjoy catchy, entertaining music while learning the alphabet, numbers, shapes and colors through games that stimulate and challenge the imagination. Each song has completely different features, so your child is sure to find an all-time favorite.

The app comes with two free songs including:

The Hokey Pokey: Help the 5 dancers move in time with the song and learn the difference between right and left, as well as parts of the body like hand, foot, head and bottom. Tap your character to make them shake and shimmy!

The Alphabet Song: Match similar balloons. Guess correctly and something neat that starts with that letter will appear! And if you can’t get it, tapping the question mark button will give you a hint! You can even change between capital and small letters, so you can learn both.

SumahoMAMA is also offering Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, which teaches kids about the solar system and planets, free until July 31st.

Other songs available for download include: 10 Little Indians, The Muffin Man, Old MacDonald, Parade of the Wooden Soldiers, I’ve Been Working on the Railroad, Wheels on the Bus, Itsy Bitsy Spider, Farmer in the Dell, London Bridge, Turkey in the Straw and Under the Spreading Chestnut Tree.

SumahoMAMA’s apps do not come with tutorials. Instead, SumahoMAMA encourages children to discover the way to play each game on their own with the goal of instilling confidence and fostering a sense of self-inquiry and drive.

As moms ourselves, we create our apps with our kids in mind, considering everything from educational value to stimulating interactivity,” said Kyoko Sakai, co-founder, SumahoMAMA. “We see our apps as tools that can be used to teach children about the world around them to gain real life experiences. We hope your children love our apps as much as ours do.

SumahoMAMA is currently available for iOS and can be downloaded from the Apple iTunes Store. Additionally, you can view a video of the Touch ‘n Sing app on YouTube. The basic version of the app is free and comes with two songs; twelve additional songs can be purchased for $0.99 each. Versions for Android and the Amazon Kindle will be available soon. To celebrate the launch of Touch ‘n Sing, SumahoMAMA will also be making its Geo Challenge app available free until July 15th – after the initial free period, this app will retail for at a reduced rate of $0.99 through July 31st.
