[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Les Trois Elles Interactive today announced that Tam & Tao in Numberland, their Montessori-based educational iPhone/iPad app for kids, has received the FWA Mobile Of The Day (MOTD) Award.
The award is attributed on 5 criteria: Creativity, Originality, Design, Content and Personality.
"We've received a lot of positive feedback from parents who are looking for an alternative to video games. They loved the graphics of our app, its educational value, and also its rhythm which is interactive enough to keep kids interested, yet doesn't contribute to getting them wound-up. This award comes as another great recognition and we are very proud." says one of the Founders.
FWA is an industry-recognized award program, established in 2000, showcasing projects which use cutting-edge technology, together with inspirational ideas, that lead the way for future generations.
The unique artwork of this app is a refreshing rupture from typical video games. It takes kids through 10 beautifully animated scenes, each one presenting a number. Children's books inspired illustration, with a paper-collage feel, contrasts with the high-tech screen.
Based on the Montessori Method, the app is also an efficient tool to help kids not only learn but also understand the concept of numbers: count, practice and write, associate a quantity with a symbol. Children learn effortlessly, and are proud of their work. Isn't self-confidence the most wonderful present we can give our children?
Kids will experiment while having fun: get the nine-eyed monster out of its hiding-place, find out what's hidden in the undersea treasure chest, find out what happens when all the stars disappear... All these activities will keep them coming back for more, especially if parents lead them: "Lets count the trees", "Be careful, jellyfish sting!"... It will become a bonding moment that children and parents will appreciate!

* Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), and iPad

Les Trois Elles started with three friends, Marilyne, Valerie and Gael. Marilyne has a PhD in Literature, Valerie and Gael both hold a Masters degree in Business Administration. Gael has been working in the Marketing department of a major Luxury brand for 10 years. Marilyne and Valerie changed their career paths and became Montessori teachers. All three of them are convinced that the Montessori Method is extremely comprehensive. Impressed by their own children's reaction to this method, they wanted to make it accessible to a larger number of children. Their objective: develop new learning tools via iPad/iPhone that are easy and safe to use. Copyright (C) 2010 Les Trois Elles Interactive. All Rights Reserved.
