Peg and Pog by Kenikeni Limited introduce their spunky protagonists in the first of a series of apps designed to bring families together for quality screen time. We feel that Kenikeni along with their endearing characters, Peg, Pog, and their adorable cat, Cosmo have met and exceeded their goal of designing such an app. TWA highly recommends this app for its appropriate role models, the inclusion of diversity, and engaging interactivity. Not to mention the brilliant artwork done by Luella Jane Wright! Kenikeni founder Ken Rutherford, states “We wanted to create an immersive experience that kids and parents can enjoy together - a catalyst for curiosity that nurtures early literacy and promotes social and emotional awareness."
Mission Accomplished! Peg and Pog has a solid foundation in best practices in educational pedagogy, it is designed with free play with no rules to follow. Each time a child plays it will be a new exploration into a combination of everyday life and exotic locales, always with new surprises! Promoting rich vocabulary is front and center, as well as inviting parents/teachers/caregivers to have detailed conversations with children that encourage question asking, stimulating imaginations, and fostering further investigations. Oh, did we mention FUN and ENGAGEMENT? It is at the forefront of everything and ingrained into anything Peg and Pog related. The children we worked with were enamored with this play adventure and returned, again and again, ensuring a long shelf life.
Kids can easily drag and drop whatever they choose from the 8 wonderful scenes full of sounds, words, and animation. Imaginative play with over 170 words and a choice of 6 languages - English (US), English (UK), French, Spanish, Portuguese and Mandarin Chinese, and more. Perfect for toddlers and preschoolers to play and learn. A wonderful tool for siblings and adults to share the opportunity to bolster strong foundational skills during these early years. We know from research early exposure to language makes the most impact when presented early on and regularly during child development!
