Most kids today love playing on tablets, and a lot of times, you even see iPads in the classroom or at their preschool with educational apps on them. Tablets can be used as a great learning tool as well as giving kids entertainment.
I’d love to introduce you to a new iPad app/toy called Tiggly Counts. Tiggly Counts is a math system for children 3 and up. Tiggly Counts is inspired by the classic cuisenaire rods that are used in Montessori education. You get a set of five colorful counting toys which interact with parent and educator approved Tiggly iPad learning apps. Tiggly Counts gives both physical and digital play which helps children develop their counting skills, number sense and understanding both addition and subtraction math problems.
Tiggly Counts costs just $29.95 and includes 3 FREE learning apps as well as a travel carrying pouch. I also have a special promo code I’m allowed to share with you that will give you 30% off of Tiggly Counts when you pre-order. Just use promo code TIGGLYCOUNTS at checkout (expires 11/21/14). Tiggly Counts is available for pre-order October 7th and is available for purchase in November.
Tiggly Counts has already won the 2014 Tillywig Brain Child Award as one of the most “exciting products that energize the mind while seamlessly blending fun and learning.”
Even though Tiggly Counts doesn’t launch until October 21, they’ve already won the 2014 Tillywig Brain Child Award as one of the most “exciting products that energize the mind while seamlessly blending fun and learning.”
Some of the fun you can have with the Tiggly Counts App:
Tiggly Addventure: Tiggly sets off an adventure to deliver the most delicious apple in Tiggly Town to his beloved grandmother! Along the way, Tiggly will need you to use your counting toys to build bridges, ladders, and much more to help him overcome challenges on the land, sea, and even outer space! Tiggly Adventure introduces you to number line concepts while helping you improve your number sense and counting skills. Count up, count down, count all, and count on!
Tiggly Cardtoons: A world of playful and surprising learning comes alive at the speed of imagination as you use your counting toys. Two pieces of cardboard become a juggling owl, or a hungry shark with a taste for apples, or a rumbling truck carrying… snakes?! Tiggly Cardtoons will help you learn basic math ideas such as one-to-one matching, counting, and equal sets.
Tiggly Chef: Emergency in the kitchen! Tiggly Town’s greatest, most mustachioed Chef needs help, and only you and your counting toys can prepare his preposterously silly recipes. Think you can beat the Chef at his own game? Devise your own kooky culinary concoctions in one of Chef’s three kitchens! Along the way, Chef will help you learn numbers and early addition concepts; he will introduce you to math symbols, and encourage you to follow instructions and to think flexibly.

What is beauty? For many people it means different things, normally it’s about looks, but beauty isn’t just about that. Beauty can be found in many different ways by many different people. For one person it might be looks, for another it might be style, for another about someone’s heart. As cliche as it may sound, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
For myself, beauty is my daughters and getting to spend time with them. Beauty is my family!
What is beauty to you? Dove and Walgreens want to know, and want you to share your real beauty with them and everyone else with the #BeautyIs hashtag. To get involved we want to see those selfies!
Just snap away and upload your photo to Twitter or Instagram using #BeautyIs, it can be any of the following:
• A self-portrait that captures your natural beauty
• A picture that shows you sharing a positive moment with someone else
• An image that shows you giving back
• A picture that portrays your overall personality
Dove and Walgreens are committed to building positive self-esteem and inspiring all women and girls to reach their full potential and acknowledge that beauty is defined in many different ways.
You can see what #BeautyIs to others by visiting DoveShareYourBeauty.com!
This was part of a Walgreens/Dove campaign with Global Influence. Please see my disclosure policy for more info.

The WWE is really into community, especially when it comes to helping out their younger fans. Their very popular Be A STAR anti-bullying campaign was founded in 2011 and has been a huge success. Now, The Creative Coalition and WWE has teamed up with DoSomething.org to launch a new factor in their anti-bullying movement.
The Bully Text: Superstar Edition is a campaign that uses an SMS text message game to get young people involved and taking action around bullying. The SMS text message experience takes young people on a virtual walk through a day in the life of a student giving them a chance to take action around bullying. For example, young people receive a text in the experience with the following scenario: “Seth teases Amy, ur lab partner, about her stutter & everyone laughs. Do u A) wait & comfort her after class or B) tell them to quit it.” Each scenario is designed to make young people think about what they would do in the face of bullying alongside some of their favorite WWE Superstars.
“Both DoSomething.org and Be a STAR are committed to giving young people the tools they need to combat bullying,” said Naomi Hirabayashi, Chief Marketing Officer, DoSomething.org. “Through DoSomething.org’s expertise in using innovative SMS games to tackle important issues and WWE’s global reach and passionate fan base, this partnership is a no-brainer.”
WWE Superstar Sheamus has joined forces to record a public service announcement to encourage participation in The Bully Text.
“Bullying is the unfortunate great equalizer. The Bully Text Campaign provides a direct and positive resource to the younger generation,” said Robin Bronk, Chief Executive Officer, The Creative Coalition. “Be a STAR aims to provide students with the best assets that help combat the bullying epidemic, and the Bully Text Campaign is something we want in every student’s anti-bullying toolbox.”
To play the Bully Text, visit http://www.DoSomething.org/star or text STAR to 38383.
