Created by 11 year old Tyler, together with his 6 year old sister Ashley and their father Robert, this iPad application is one that everybody can enjoy as a part of the build-up to Christmas. Join Flippy the Penguin and Slippy the Seal as they anticipate Christmas.
Everybody loves the countdown, and with this advent calendar, it is made that much more exciting. Watch as Flippy and Slippy’s igloo becomes more filled with Christmas spirit each day. Starting at the beginning of December your kids can open a gift a day in the form of an exciting interactive accessory for Flippy and Slippy to enjoy - that is 25 in all. The gifts include: a Christmas tree; Christmas stockings; sweaters for the adorable little characters; skis; toys; and many more. In addition, on opening each gift, there is a fun trivia fact to read. By Christmas day, Flippy and Slippy’s igloo is filled with excitement - with music playing; snow falling; toys moving; and much much more. Kids can then spend time exploring the igloo, interacting with the characters and their gifts. At any time, the iPad application can be reset allowing the calendar to be used year after year.
Keep your eyes on these kids! If this is what they’re doing now, what will they be doing next. All families have their Christmas traditions, and why shouldn’t Flippy and Slippy become something to look forward to every year. The characters are cute and lovable; the animation is fun and funky, and the sound effects are gorgeous. Sometimes the simpler the better, and this is a typical example of that. Good, simple fun.
