If you’re a parent or caretaker, you certainly understand how difficult it is to find and trust apps that are truly kid-friendly. Recently, we were introduced to Cosmic Cubs, a collection of kid-friendly apps that teach children about the universe in which they live.
About Cosmic Cubs
Creator Ann Kirsten Kennis has traveled the world as a high-fashion model for popular brands like Revlon, L’Oréal and more. Her idea for the brand actually started as a line of knowledge-loving bears that were sold in science centers, planetariums, and other specialty stores.
Several years after the birth of her daughter, she had the idea to bring those same characters to apps that would continue to teach kids about the universe. Kids can now learn about space while in cyberspace – something we all know our kids love to do!
The apps are fun, entertaining, educational, and most importantly, they’ve earned the kidSAFE Seal of approval!
