Sesame Street Alphabet Kitchen app will be available as part of the Tiggly Words learning system, but can also be played without Tiggly Toys. The app addresses key educational and social needs of the preschool audience, and the physical play provides a powerful learning experience for preschoolers. For example, when children choose vowels to make new words, they hear all the letter sounds, and how they are blended to make complete words, which can strengthen early literacy skills.
After making word cookies, kids have fun eating the cookies themselves or sharing them with Cookie Monster. Cookie Monster’s silly reactions provide an opportunity to think about these kinds of social choices and he also models self-control while waiting for the cookies.
All of this is possible because of Tiggly’s cutting edge technology. “New research tells us adding a tactile dimension to digital learning enhances children’s learning experience on their tablets,” said Dr. Azadeh Jamalian, Chief Learning Officer & CoFounder of Tiggly. “It’s truly an honor for us to see Sesame Workshop believe in our mission and support our important movement to bring physical play into children’s digital sandbox.”
“For over 45 years, Sesame Workshop’s recipe for success lies in combining our researchdriven curriculum with the sophisticated use of media and the latest technology,” added Scott Chambers, SVP of Worldwide Media Distribution, Sesame Workshop. “Cookie Monster’s hilarious obsession with his favorite food paired with key literacy lessons provides kids with a unique and engaging learning experience the whole family can enjoy.”
Sesame Street Alphabet Kitchen will be available on Thursday, November 26th, for download on the Apple App Store for $2.99, or is available for free as part of the Tiggly Words Learning System.
The Tiggly Words Learning System includes five specially designed vowel toys (a,e,i,o,u) as well as 4 apps that interact with the toys, including the new Sesame Street Alphabet Kitchen.
