I’m forever on the lookout for good apps that will do more than just keep my children occupied for 20-30 minutes at a time. Because of this I’m forever researching different apps and reading reviews before making the plunge. My most recent favorite is the Alexandra Rain App “Friends to the Rescue!”
My daughter is at the age now where she voices strong opinions on her clothing, style. Long gone are the days where I pick out her clothes and tell her what to wear! This app follows the journey of an 8 year old little girl named Alexandra Rain, who calls herself a “Super Model Extraordinaire”!
As soon as you open this app you are introduced to the ‘Dress Up Alex’ feature where you meet Alexandra and her wardrobe. My girls and dress-up? Sold! They were able to pick out her entire outfit before starting the interactive story. We are then taken through a typical day at school and like many children Alexandra is afraid and needs to find her courage.
This really struck a chord with me because my daughter is quite timid. My husband and I are always encouraging her to do so, but this app was a nice addition to our parenting. The term ‘Super Model’ is used quite often in this app, but not in the traditional sense. Instead, kids are taught the value of modeling good and kind virtues such as love, peace, kindness and courage.
Although Alex is definitely into modeling her new clothes and accessories, modeling kind, positive behavior is even more important. This app encourages girls to embrace their individuality whether that be a tom-boy or a fashionista.
The love and support provided by Alex’s mother was refreshing and mirrors many of the things I say to my daughter on a daily basis. At the end of the app, there are some fun bonus features. You can sing along to her hit single “You Can Model Love!” karaoke style and watch her music video “You can model love” which my girls LOVED.
There is also a coloring page and matching game which provides additional fun.
I have to say I really, really enjoyed this app and hope they release additional books in the very near future. You can purchase this App for $1.99 through the iTunes App Store.
In celebration of this app’s launch we are giving away 1 out of 10 Daisy Rock Guitars (value $300). You can enter using the Rafflecopter form below. In addition, we will be throwing a Twitter Party with even more ways to win (over $1,000 in prizing).
