What's It About?
Ok so if your kids are anything like mine then the iPad or smartphone is a device typically used for playing silly games or watching videos of their favorite cartoons or of other kids playing and unboxing something that sooner or later they’ll want to unbox themselves.
Mindful Powers offers a completely different experience that is unlike any of the apps my kids have ever interacted with.
The app aims to develop your child’s mindful skills to help them cope with stress, anxiety or big emotions. It looks to strengthen their ability to be calm and focus with the help of a playful and friendly animated character called a Flibbertigibbet.
It’s a really interesting concept and you have to admire Smashing Ideas for creating a really novel product for kids that aims to affect positive change. Having said that though, it isn’t all kids that are going to find this fun especially if they have plenty of more traditionally entertaining games on their device.
