Animal 4D+ Flashcards DIY Flashcard & Edutoys and Octagon Studio
 

A couple of weeks ago, I came across a very interesting post on social media.  I love social media for the opportunity to seek out great products and information; of course, you have to make sure you LIKE appropriate educational pages!

I am honored to introduce you to DIY Flashcard & Edutoys.  Along with Octagon Studio they have created a set of animal alphabet cards in 4D!  You have to see it to really experience the beauty of the absolutely breathtaking graphics and the realistic sounds of these animals as they come to life on your device.  I believe this is augmented reality at its best.

IMPRESSIONS

I absolutely love these animal flashcards and interactive food cards.  Not only are they highly interactive, they are educational and fun for all ages.  Teachers will have fun including these while teaching animal habitats and behavior.  Use them for categorizing and answering questions; which animals have fur, four legs, live in similar regions?  Parents will love watching their children explore the animals with augmented reality.  Kids will love them “because they are like live animals and they make real noises!”

 AVAILABILITY

The apps are available for download for both Android and IOS.  For purposes of this review I used only the IOS app on an iPad Air.  In addition to the Animal 4D+ flashcards, you can also order the just released Octaland 4D+, flashcards that explore occupations and their environments. Visit DIY Flashcard & Edutoys for purchasing.
