Apple to Begin Selling Square Panda's Phonics Learning System for iPad

Square Panda today announced that its phonics learning system for kids will now be sold at select Apple Stores and on Apple.com.


The Bluetooth-enabled, multisensory playset uses iPad apps to help children interact with a variety of fun games, each of which helps them learn to read, write, and communicate. The system also incorporates physical smart letters, which children place in the playset and then watch the letters and words appear on the screen.

We don't see the Apple.com listing yet, but Square Panda is also available for $39.50 on Amazon after applying an instant $10 on-page coupon.

Update July 18: Square Panda is now available on Apple's website, while the $10 Amazon instant coupon has expired.

I remember when we used books for learning

There was a time when people used scrolls for learning. Once upon a time we didn’t even have paper. As we advance shouldn’t the learning tools do so often?

I remember when we had to use multi-volume encyclopedias to find basic information.

There's obviously no way to learn something if your learning materials don't flash and beep.

Seriously, a well-designed game can make learning fun for kids.
