Mama’s Geeky has teamed up with MomSelect for this sponsored post. All opinions expressed are my own.
My daughters are big gamers, just like their mama. They have a tablet that my husband and I have filled with great games for their age that they share. The newest game we downloaded is Noddy Toyland Detective. This app is based on a show that they watch on Netflix all the time. It is one of their favorites so you can imagine how excited they were to see a game where they could play as Noddy and solve cases! They couldn’t believe they could meet characters from the TV show including Bumpy Dog, Revs, Pat-Pat and the Panda Pockets, Fuse, the Naughticorns! This game quickly became one of my favorites too.
This is a great game for them to play alone, with each other, or with myself or my husband. We have lots of fun exploring Toyland in 3D and asking questions to uncover clues and solve mysteries. My 6 year old’s favorite part is creating musical masterpieces with the Pirate Band – she is going to be a composer one day, I swear it. You can also follow workout patterns, paint and decorate, solve jigsaw puzzles and so much more!
I love that my girls build investigation skills by discovering challenges, remembering, collecting, listening, thinking, and making connections. My youngest daughter is going into Preschool next year and this game is really preparing her for it – without her even knowing. The skills she is developing include language, sentence structure, and of course, creativity through play. I am shocked by the words she is learning and using – and she is even starting to read now!
For the Parents
One of my favorite things about this app is that there is no advertising or in-app purchases. Honestly, that is something I worry about most when I let me girls have their tablet to play without me watching over them. Even though I have set my account to require a password for them to purchase, I am always nervous they will somehow crack the code. So this take a huge weight off my shoulders.
Noddy Toyland Detective allows me to set up the length of time they can play, which is ideal for letting them have the tablet at bedtime. I also really like that I receive email notifications when they have finished a play session and create a new case for us to read together. Yup, each time they play, a storybook is generated! How cool is that?
