Attention, parents! There’s a brand-new suite of apps available on the App Store for your youngster to enjoy.
Mosster, the developers behind PanPaTan, PanPaShake, Tachin Tachan, and Tachin Mini, released all four apps on July 28.
The first app in the suite, PanPaTan, is available on the iPad for $2.99. PanPaTan focuses on teaching children valuable music skill such as playing and listening.
The app encourages them to interact with the iPad in unconventional ways to create music.
Children and parents can play along together, as well, thanks to multiplayer functionality and the ability to play up to four instruments at the same time.
PanPaShake, the second app in the Mosster lineup, is a free nighttime app for iPhone and iPad. Children can listen to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star while watching animations on the screen.
Shaking the iPhone or iPad controls the tempo of the song, which in turn teaches children about rhythms. New songs will be added to the app in upcoming updates, as well.
The third children’s app, Tachin Tachan, allows kids to team up with five musicians and make beautiful music together.
From Quirky Bird to Little Maraca, each character has their own unique instrument for kids to play.
Similar to PanPaShake, children must interact with the iPhone and/or iPad in various ways in order to make music.
Tachin Mini, the fourth and final app in the new series, is a lite version of Tachin Tachan. In this edition of the app, only one character (Mr. Moustache) is available to play with.
However, the app still functions like the full version in that kids can make music and play with it.
Mosster takes app development seriously, but they believe adding a physical aspect to their games is just as important as having a solid app.
According to their App Store descriptions, “We believe real toys have always been incredibly important social tools for the development of children. And that’s something we are trying to bring to our digital medium.”
On a final note, all four Mosster apps do not contain any sort of in-app purchases or advertisements, which is music to a parent’s ears.
