New Hanukkah app for kids
Hanukkah has begun, and now kids can celebrate the 8-day Festival of Lights with a brand new app by Mibblio.
The company, which specializes in making interactive music apps for kids, has launched Matisyahu's 'Happy Hanukkah' Jam Along, an iPad-compatible activity app that tells the story of the holiday's celebration through song.
Kids can play along with the tunes' reggae beat; learning about Hanukkah while also becoming familiar with different instruments such as the piano, guitar, violin and maracas. By easily adding and taking instruments away from the track (done with the tap of a finger), kids can understand the sound each one makes.
The app also includes bright illustrations and easy instruction bubbles that point out where kids can strum and drum along with the beat.
Matisyahu's "Happy Hannukah" Jam-Along app is available for $2.99 on iTunes.
