[prMac.com] N. Novgorod, Russian Federation - BabyFirst Games today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of BabyFirst Encyclopedia 1.3 for iOS devices, their free early learning encyclopedia app for babies and toddlers. The encyclopedia includes six categories of content, such as "The Farm," "Transportation" and "Underwater World." These categories contain over 100 bright and high quality photos taken in various natural habitats. Each image is accompanied by an audio recording of the word it represents and a caption written in large, highly contrasted text. The child can spend time looking through the images while learning various words and concepts from them. After a while of this, the child will likely start recognizing the things presented in the images and might ask you more about them.
In order to ensure that the child has an easy time browsing the encyclopedia, we made the primary control element a toy train. The child can choose between the different sections within the encyclopedia by moving the toy train around the tracks and choosing different carts. Being parents ourselves, we developed the app to work well with children's typical movement patterns. Our testing showed that even 10-month-old toddlers are capable of browsing through the images presented by the app since all that's required is dragging a finger along the screen in any visible area.
We believe that a solid appreciation for art can be cultivated from an early age. This is why we added a bonus section to our encyclopedia that contains images depicting various famous paintings. The section features paintings by Klimt, Monet, Vincent van Gogh and other renowned artists. We specifically selected paintings that feature large objects as their focus, easy for children to grasp, and captioned them with simplified names.
The game's graphics are created by a professional children's illustrator and take the form of comfy fabric based elements. The soundtrack for the app consists of modified classical music edited to resemble music from a music box. This allowed us to make the app pleasant for the child yet not too distracting so as to not interfere with the assimilation of new information.
If early development for your child is something you're interested in, then the BabyFirst Encyclopedia will be one of the most comfortable and efficient games to help your child learn and prosper for a long time to come by helping your child form a wholesome collection of knowledge about the surrounding world.
