Introduce Your Child to New Words

Repetition and “repeat after me” aren’t generally things that young children want to do. Nor are they necessarily helpful ways to help your child learn. Studies have been done that show that in order for children to learn, they need to do. They need to engage, move and do things in order for the learning to stick. That’s why pretend play is so important.

Piccoli Zoo introduces children to the fun of learning. Together with a plush horse, speaking words out loud and physical movements, parents, and children are encouraged to play together as a team. Piccoli horses are non-electronic, stuffed animals, to keep children engaged in the here and now. Piccoli Zoo is a fun language learning app designed to get children speaking out loud.

Piccoli Horses

The Piccoli Horses provide a connection to the Piccoli Zoo app. Through the app, your child will hear a word being spoken, repeat the word, and engage with the app. They will press the screen to hear the word. Then they will speak the word and slide the slider on the app to the side to progress to the new word when ready. The app encourages the child to move and do whether that means blowing to simulate blowing out candles or reaching to simulate how a giraffe reaches. As the child learns, they will move through the “zoo” and gain stars as they progress.

The horses provide a tangible (and adorable) connection as your child learns. They will cuddle with the horse, hold it, carry it and just engage with it as they play. The app works with or without the horse but the horse provides a fun physical connection. There are a variety of different sizes and colors of horses to go along with the app from the classic 14″ horse to the mini 6″ horse. They are very well made, super soft and great to cuddle.

If you have a child that is struggling to learn languages, the Piccoli app and horse are a wonderful way to really get them engaged and interested in improving this skill.
