It’s no secret I am against media for children under three-years-old, so when we received a press release today announcing iPhone Pacifier, I couldn’t resist bashing this use of technology. Sure, I can get behind energy saving apps, but an app claiming to educate children ages 1 to 3? No way!
The iPhone Pacifier 1 is an iPhone baby game application that is both fun and educational. The game teaches infants and small children basic cognitive and vocabulary skills while also keeping the kids’ attention. The application teaches infants shapes, colors, and numbers and features different classical pieces as background music. This educational baby game has settings that can adjust to fit the different skill levels of infants and young children.
Maybe I shouldn’t knock it until I try it, but somethings you know just aren’t right. I don’t have an iPhone, but I do have an iPod touch. Even so, I won’t be downloading this app. I’d rather read and play with my children. Call me old fashioned.
