If you're a parent, then chances are you are constantly trying to think of ways to keep your child(ren) entertained. Whether you are in the car for an extended period of time, waiting at a doctor's office, or just trying to get a few minutes to yourself to get some housework done, keeping your kids entertained can be a chore in itself.
My kids are TV addicts, so when we pull out our phones or their Kindles and try to get them to play a reading "game" or some other educational app, they last only for about 5 minutes before they want to watch one of their favorite cartoons. I really don't mind them watching that stuff, but it would be nice to turn on a channel that is not only fun, but educational too. Thanks to Gombby's Green Island Channel, now parents can do just that.
Gombby Channel gives you access to a selection of the best episodes from Gombby's Green Island, the family friendly educational and entertaining TV Show.
Green Island is home to Gombby, Strawy, Celeste and all their friends! Wheat fields, woods and wonderful caves to explore are the backdrop to their adventures and discoveries all over the island. Gombby, the little baker boy, loves to take the lead in those adventures! The answers to life's big questions, the mysterious Bugaboo or the Green Island funfair – are just some of the stories that Gombby and his friends live through as they learn about the world around them. Re and Mi - two fabulously colored birds - regularly accompany them on their adventures and Gadget Man never ceases to be their favorite inventor, inventing curiosities such as gravity simulators, paint-making machines or Ferris wheels! Green Island, a world where Gombby and his friends learn about the importance of friendship and sharing. A pro-social series - but not just that! Gombby's Green Island builds children's general knowledge and gives them confidence to make healthy lifestyle choices too!
Your kids can watch Gombby's educational and entertaining adventures on your iPhone, iPad and iPod. Each family-friendly episode is 13 minutes long, and you can download the first three episodes for free from the App Store. Additional episodes are available for in-app purchase. Kids can download and store their favorite episodes to watch while on the go - even when no connectivity is available.
Each episode is available in 3 different languages, too - English, Spanish and Portuguese.
Unfortunately, we do not have any iOS devices in our house, so I have yet to watch these cute characters come to life. I just saw on their website that Gombby's stories will be coming soon to Kindle, so I will be waiting for that. The next time I'm with a friend with an iPhone, though, we will definitely be checking out Gombby's Green Island Channel!
Have you checked out this fun app yet? If you have, I would love to know what you think about it. Which of those adorable characters is your favorite?
