Being an educator as well as a parent and now grandparent, I am always on the look out for things that make learning come to life and of my new favorite gifts to give to new or expectant parents is Edwin The Duck, the app connected smart duck that takes the old fashioned rubber duck to the next level.
As someone who has taught both Kindergarten as well as Transitional Kindergarten, I know the importance of early childhood education but I also know that the best way for any while to learn, no matter what their age is through something that is not interactive, engaging and fun but something that will grow with your child as their developmental needs and cognitive skill levels grow. And I can honestly say that the developers of Edwin The Duck have thought of all of that and more. So just what is Edwin The Duck? Edwin was created to be a lovable sidekick for parents of preschoolers, toddlers, and newborns. Not only is it fun for the kids but it is helpful to parents with including such features as:
