BBC Introduces CBeebies Playtime App For Kids

The British Broadcasting Corporation has released children’s app that has no in-app purchasing to worry about. The app, which is available for iOS, Android and Kindle Fire, includes four new games featuring CBeebies characters from The Octonauts, Tree Fu Tom, Mr Tumble and the Alphablocks.

Here is more from about the app:

Your little one can also earn rewards finding CBeebies bugs and picking their favourites to keep in their world. You can have fun together making their very own CBeebies Hot Air Balloon profile to store their rewards and achievements. It’s an experience for families too as grown ups can get involved with some fun features like surprising your child with a special message.

The app’s special features includes the ability to make profiles for each child, and you can even create a personalized message for your child from a CBeebies announcer. (Via The Guardian).
