[] Berlin, Germany - TechSpaghetti is proud to announce the release of ToonSpaghetti Movie Maker for Kids: Music Play 1.0, their movie making app for iPad devices. Using ToonSpaghetti Movie MakerMaker kids can make their own amazing ToonSpaghetti movies and share them with their friends and family.

Leah Hinton, a music teacher, had long recognized that creative thinking was rapidly becoming a vital skill for today's children. "Elliot came to a red carpet screening for my Digital Arts class," says Hinton, "We got talking about how important creativity is in education and how limiting today's schools are for kids' creative development."

As larger companies such as Apple and Google, along with state departments, shift their focus towards 21st century education, Hinton and Tabachnik are using creativity to prepare kids for the future.

"Creative education is not just for tomorrow's musicians," says Hinton. "We had to upskill ourselves to become app developers, and this is something that today's kids will need to do continually as the world changes."

"Fortune 500 companies are emphasizing creative thinking and innovation as the key qualities they are looking for," Tabachnik adds. "Our mission is to enable kids to apply logic to their creativity, developing them into the innovators and problem solvers of tomorrow".
