Bubbles by Hog Bay Software
Sound too good to be true?
It’s not – and I know this because I’ve been there!
Here’s my story: A few years ago, I was planning to travel overseas on a 12-hour flight. I was concerned that my then-3-year-old daughter wouldn’t have much to keep her occupied for all that time.
As many parents know, travel and waiting time can be tough when it comes to little kids. So, I had this great idea about creating an app that simulated playing with and popping bubbles, and I thought it would be fun and that it would be something that occupied her for longer periods of time. I mean, bubbles never get old, right? But with all of the trip preparations, I wasn’t able to get the app done on time.
After the trip, though, I was able to finish the app, and since then, it has provided an enormous amount of entertainment and even cuddle time for all of us. (It’s multi-touch, so Moms and Dads can play too!) My daughter’s favorite part was when I made little noises, as if the bubbles we were popping were alive -- she’d get into giggle fits like you wouldn’t believe.
“My son is 3 and he loves this app. When I get home from work he says "Bubbles, Bubbles…." until I turn it on! Awesome for adults too!!”
What’s more fun and simple for kids than popping bubbles?
• They’re super-fun!
• Popping bubbles never gets old – definitely not for small children and not for many adults, either!
• They’re calming and easy to follow, no matter what your child’s mood on any given day.
“My 1 -year-old daughter loves this. She says about 5 words, one of them being, “bubbles!””
Kids always want more, more, more, right? Sure, you could buy a complicated and expensive toy for your child and hope against hope that it will keep them occupied for a long period of time, whether traveling, waiting or simply in “quiet time.”
But chances are that he or she will soon grow tired of that game and want the next thing. What I and thousands of other parents have found is that Bubbles works….easily, quickly, simply.
“I downloaded this to keep my son busy during church services. Worked like a charm! Only a parent can understand the difficulty of getting a child to sit in one place for more than 5 seconds. This is great for any parent with a small child and the willingness to surrender their iPhone to a toddler. :)”
Bubbles works for the whole family:
• For babies and young children (from the time they can sit up until they are around 5 or 6, we have found) who need a fun distraction or some quality time with Mom or Dad.
• We know for a fact that adults enjoy it, too!
• All you need is an iPhone or an iPad, and a readiness to pop some bubbles!
“I think this is a great app for distracting my 16-month-old any place, any time. And I am also guilty of playing it at work….:)”
“Downloaded this to keep my 5 month old entertained. He's happy playing with it so it's worth 5 stars to me!”
