Good Free App of the Day: Brand new GoldieBlox app, completely FREE!

If you have a daughter, you may have heard about GoldieBlox. It's a toy series designed to give girls confidence in problem solving, with a focus on inventing and engineering. My seven year old daughter has two sets, and absolutely loves them. So I literally cheered when I saw this brand new app in the app store today.
GoldieBlox and the Movie Machine is focused on the process of animation, and integrates so many of the features of the iPad or iPhone into the app. It's a very fun way for anyone, boy or girl, to invent and engineer with the iPad. Designed for kids 6-8, this app should be downloaded right now for anyone in that target age.

To let your kids start creating, please support Smart Apps For Special Needs and use our download link:
