Samsung KidsTime Apps for Kids
Remember I mentioned in my previous post that we went for a video shoot last Saturday? Well, I can finally reveal what that shoot was for :D
Can you see that I was showing Ethan something on the tablet? We were actually exploring a new app by Samsung called Samsung KidsTime. Samsung KidsTime is a new application that helps in managing and improving child development.
Ethan and I were introduced to Samsung KidsTime on the recording day itself and were given some time to explore it before being interviewed for the recording. It was quite an easy task answering the questions as we found the app to be worth having as it has many unique selling points. One of it is the Child Usage Report that enables me to monitor my kids’ activities on the tab. Kids inevitably spend time in front of screens – be it they choose to, or parents use it to distract them. I for one am proud to say that I rarely distract my kids with the tab but when I do, I like to have the option of knowing what they do with it.
Time is also a factor when Ethan is using the tab. I usually limit his usage to not more than an hour preferably with a short break in between. But sometimes when I am busy, we both overlooked the time and he ended spending an hour or more continuously on the tab. With KidsTime, I can use the timer function to set the time prior to handing him the tab.
What I find interesting about the app is also the fact that it has no ads and in app purchases making it safe for children to browse freely.
I’ll go into details about the app in a separate post but before that I would like to thank Samsung Malaysia for presenting Ethan with a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 so we can explore the KidsTime app further together.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 that was given to us comes fully loaded with lots and lots of games and e-books from Samsung KidsTime. After all, the app has 80 games + E-books with monthly updates by curated publishers. Imagine having a virtual library at your fingertips. We are going to have so much fun exploring all these games and stories together. You can browse Samsung KidsTime web for further info.
I attended the Samsung KidsTime official launch yesterday, 30 October 2014 at Menara Kuala Lumpur (KL Tower). I also checked out the FSK 2014 Children’s Literature Festival (Festival Sastera Kanak-Kanak) that is happening from 30 October to 2 November 2014 at the same place (Menara Kuala Lumpur) from 10am to 6pm every day. It is open to public.
Day 1 Activities Schedule
I attended the “Communicate With Your Child Through Story Telling” session by Beatrize Montero from Spain.
I needed to learn to tell better bedtime story because the last time I tried, Ayden ended up unable to sleep throughout the night -.-
I also stayed for the Pop-Up Book tutorial by Allonzo Abu Bakar. It will be an interesting activity to make a pop-up book with the kids this coming school holidays.
Talking about story-telling, KidsTime app has E-Books that can be used as bedtime stories with the kids.
Besides games, there are also books for the kids. How awesome is that?
There are so many books to choose; from the FREE range to FAVOURITE or even CLASSIC books and more!
Kids can choose to get the tab to read to them or they may want to read the book themselves. If they are up for an adventure, they can choose Read & Play for an interactive story telling session.
Ayden loves it when I read to him from the E-book as he loves the animated display. It takes story- telling to a whole new level.
I’ve gone through quite a number of educational apps and found Kidstime to be one of the best apps for kids. It is even suitable for toddlers. I use it a lot when I am in the kitchen whipping out a quick meal for Ayden and needs to keep the kids occupied.
