What our experts think

This is a really fun app for toddlers and preschoolers. The children really enjoyed seeing the results of their blowing and experimented with how hard they blew whilst delighting in trying each scene. Not only is this app great fun but it allows children to understand wind. This could also prove a useful tool in speech therapy as some believe breath control can support learning to speak and also as youngsters are inspired to articulate what they see.
