From CBeebies Playtime Interactive Producer:
“I’m Lizzie, Producer at Cbeebies. I was so pleased and proud to be a part of the CBeebies Playtime app; it has been a really exciting project to work on! As with all of our projects we visit schools, nurseries and playgroups all the time, to test new ideas and even the latest technology with kids and it’s always so amazing to see how easily, even really young children enjoy playing on apps and touch screen devices. It’s startling how quickly and effortlessly they pick things up! So, we at CBeebies wanted to make one of the best, educational apps for kids available, free in the UK; one that grown-ups, children and siblings can enjoy as a family.
Kids have been at the heart of creating the CBeebies Playtime app and it has been fantastic to hear their thoughts, opinions and ideas along the way!
Our grown-ups are important to us and we have included a special section for grown-ups within the app with information, useful links and some fun elements too, like the ‘special message’ feature. You can find out more about the developmental benefits of each game here as well as some tips to support you to help your child learn while they play.
This initial release of the CBeebies Playtime app features four brand new games and there are so many great CBeebies shows, loved by so many kids that it was a not easy narrowing it down to a select few, but we hope that we have chosen a handful of our most channel defining brands, ones that really showcase what CBeebies is all about; fun, play and learning for little ones.
We hope that there is something for everyone to enjoy and with more exciting game additions and updates coming soon, you can keep up-to-date with all of the latest news and information right here!”
