Wikids: the Encyclopedia App for Young Children
Wiki-Kids, a company offering knowledge management solutions to children, with the goal of creating an encyclopedia for 21st century kids, has announced the launch of Wikids.
Wikids apps feature text and narration, along with images and sounds. Each Wikids app contains 120 entries in 5 categories, written from the point of view of the child.
Wikids: Animals, Nature, Countries, Landmarks and Food and Wikids: Space, The Human Body, Musical Instruments, Occupations and Transportation are among the topics.
Wikids entries are written with the belief that almost anything can be explained to young kids in about 80 words (30 seconds narrated).
Designed for independent discovery, Wikids apps present knowledge in context, with interrelated entries allowing your child to freely explore different topics, says the company.
Wikids apps are 100% child safe, contain no ads, links or distractions whatsoever, and have been certified by the kidSAFE Seal Program and Momswithapps, according to the company.
Inbal Miron-Bershteyn, co-founder of Wiki-Kids, says, “As a mom of 3 curious kids who are constantly asking about everything, I was searching for an app that satisfies their thirst for knowledge in a really meaningful way, and doesn’t just focus on acquiring basic skills such as literacy and numeracy.”
“With safe, fun and enriching content on a range of topics, Wikids is perfect for kids who can recognize letters or are just starting to learn to read, but we found that even older kids just love it!”
Wikids apps are available for download on the Apple App Store.
