Ruckus Media Group; Children’s Digital App Giveaway

by Tina @ Life Without Pink on November 10, 2010

Let me set the scene for you;

You are sitting in the waiting room of the pediatrician’s office with your two kids. 10 minutes go by, 15 minutes go by and then you hit the 20 minute mark and it happens.

They have a melt-down!

They start jumping on the chairs, whining, fighting with one another and throwing the books that were once nicely stacked on the side tables.

You start getting looks from strangers…you know the ones where they roll their eyes and sigh under their breath.

Then you have an ah ha moment!

You reach into your bag, take our your iPhone, open the Ruckus app and hand it over to your children.

Ah silence!

If you don’t know what I am referring to, you need to know about the company Ruckus Media.  They create original stories for mobile devices {ie; iPhone and iPad} that entertain toddlers to teens from their fingers to their minds, at home or on the road.

They have some real star power such as Meryl Streep, Denzel Washington, Robin Williams and John Cleese, read classic children stories like The Velveteen Rabbit, Johnny Appleseed and Tom Thumb. Pair this with incredible music by artists such as Elvis Costello, George Winston and B.B. King and you have one powerful app!

One of the best features about this app is that it will grow with your child. They can listen to the story and watch the animation, they can read it to themselves or they can record their own voices reading the story, then play it back.

And to top it off, it is only $3.99 per app. What an awesome deal!

Want to try it for yourself?

I’m giving away five promo codes for your choice of a story!

Mandatory Entry; Publicly follow my blog, visit Ruckus Media and comment back here on the app you would choose!

WOW!!! This seems like it would be an amazing–and useful!–tool for mommies in that situation. I have a few friends I’m going to forward this to :) Thanks for sharing!

Oh I have SO been in that situation. We were camped out in the examination room waiting for the doc for an HOUR once. As far as I’m concerned, after a half hour, I don’t care what my son does with your tongue depressors. You brought it on yourself.
I will definitely need to check this out!

This is pretty cool. It seems like they have stories that don’t get told as often as when we were kids. I can’t believe they have Pecos Bill–I’d have to go with that or Tom Thumb. I LOVED Pecos Bill when I was a kid, but it made me really sad too. Every time I read it, I hoped the end would change.

I’ve heard of these but didn’t know the company. Sounds awesome! I’d love the Velveteen Rabbit one.
