New app mixes child education with parent fun

AKRON, OHIO . . . With intuitive, touch-screen controls, iPhones, iPads and iPods have become hot educational tools for parents. Taking full advantage of the medium’s potential, “Mix‘Em”, a new app now available in the iTunes store, incorporates four imaginative games designed to engage and educate children ¬– while also entertaining adults.

“As a parent, my goal in developing ‘Mix‘Em’ was to create a learning tool that parents and children could play together and both enjoy,” said Patrick Jebber, the MONSTERS Unlimited game designer behind the new app. “My hope is kids will be excited to use the app, and adults will be playing the games after the kids go to bed.”

Along with its educational and entertainment value, “Mix‘Em” also offers a great financial value – boasting four endlessly playable games for the introductory low price of a single app ($0.99). The game also features unique artwork sure to delight children, and stir nostalgia in adults.

“The art, the look, the feel, all of that was inspired by the mix-and-match flipbooks I remember from when I was a kid,” Jebber said. “We’ve taken that style and mixed it with sound and interactive elements to really bring the experience to life for today’s kids. I think parents will appreciate that.”

Parents also will appreciate the different time limits and difficulty settings (ranging from “easy” to “not easy”) that keep the games fresh and challenging week after week. Here’s a brief overview of each of the four games included in “the mix”:

  • Mix‘Em – Mix up the illustrated characters and create your own unique and often silly combinations.
  • Spell‘Em – Provides children with a fun and interactive way to learn how to spell and identify words associated with characters from the game.
  • Connect‘Em – An image-association / problem-solving game that requires children to connect characters with their respective icons.
  • Match‘Em – A classic memory game that will entertain and stimulate children and adults alike with a wide variety of illustrated icons.

The “Mix‘Em” app, compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, is now available for download in the Apple App Store for the amazing introductory price of only 99 cents. Learn more about the Mix‘Em app at the Mix‘Em game official website.
