Today, in collaboration with Mercis bv, Sanoma Media Netherlands launched 'The Miffy’s Garden' iPad app. A first, because this is the only Miffy app in the world. Dick Bruna’s classic story has been transformed into an interactive adventure for toddlers and pre-schoolers. Miffy has her own garden, and there’s plenty to do: raking, sowing, harvesting. Listen to the story you will know exactly what you can do to help Miffy.   Listening, reading and reading aloudIt has been 57 years since Miffy was ‘born’ back in 1955. Since then, she is a character that has conquered the world, and is now taking her first steps in the world of the iPad. The app was developed especially for toddlers and pre-schoolers and is simple to use. Very young children will enjoy listening and watching while older children actively participate in the story and games. A special feature of the app is the possibility to record your own voice as you read the story aloud. This feature allows parents to read aloud to their children at any given moment, even when they are not physically there.Making learning funApart from the interactive story and recording their own voice, children also learn to count and solve puzzles while playing. A friendly voice gives explanations, encouragement and rewards. The app is available in two languages: Dutch and English. Children can learn their first words of English reading the story they are already familiar with in Dutch.Suzan Schouten, Uitgever Kids: “We are incredibly proud that there is now a Miffy iPad app. The app market for children is experiencing tremendous growth, and Miffy has to be part of it.”In the App Store The ‘Miffy’s Garden’ app is available via the iTunes App Store for a special introductory price of EUR 2.99.
