Baby Bytes Studios today is thrilled to announce the release of Puppet Play, a digital plaything designed specifically for iPad. Suitable for children ages 8 to 36 months and parents of all ages, Puppet Play begins with a magic Jack-in-the-box sliding onto the stage. Inviting music tempts baby to start the show, and Pop!, the antics begin. Each time the box opens, parents and babies are treated to a funny, live-action puppet show. The game offers three levels of play; simple interactions with the Jack-in-the-box expose babies to the notion of cause and effect and provide opportunities for practicing fine motor actions. The app's Play Journal summarizes baby's game-play activity, and the Tap Map shows where baby touched the screen; both give parents insights on how baby uses Puppet Play. "When my daughter was 1, I used puppets to tell her stories and make her laugh. That's what Puppet Play is all about," said Julie Clark, Baby Bytes' Mommy-in-Chief and creator of the much-loved Baby Einstein line of infant products. "It felt natural to return to real-world puppets for Puppet Play. We had a blast staging the shows, and I know parents and babies will have lots of fun playing and watching together." Device Requirements: * Compatible with iPad * Requires iOS 6.0 or later * 331 MB Pricing and Availability: Puppet Play 1.0.0 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category. Puppet Play consists of 16 original shows. An additional 16 shows are available through In-App Purchase. In related news, Baby Bytes announced that its popular Lullabytes app is now also available for iPad.
