“Wit-Fit – Little Rhymes for Witty Kids” is an app showing 12 beautifully illustrated scenes with different animals in amusing situations described in witty rhymes. The text contains several blank spaces into which you have to fit the missing words. You can move the words over the screen with your finger and if you tap on the animals you’ll activate little animations.
Every scene comes with its own background sound to create a pleasant atmosphere that invites you to stay a while and explore the scene.
I recommend playing the app slowly, as we have hidden lots of surprises and if you hurry you’ll miss half of them. There is no clock running, no high score or any kind of competition… there’s nothing more than pleasure and peace.
The app offers great artistic quality, humorous contents and something different. Our protagonists aren’t typical, fashionable animals like the polar bear or a mouse; we prefer mosquitos, a toad or a maggot. Every animal is portrayed with a lot of tenderness and grandeur, and the message is clear:
every living being is beautiful, loveable and valuable!
Most mainstream media and art will not teach your children to appreciate a “strange” creature or to think with their own heads. We should change that!
In addition “Wit-Fit” trains your reading comprehension skills and your feel for language in an entertaining way: reading can be fun!
“Wit-Fit” is made for children aged 7 - 11 years old, and can also be used in teaching English as a second language and even to prevent Alzheimer’s as the rhymes are short and easy.
We have also made a little sister app “Wit-Fit – the Grand Final in Witty Rhymes” featuring five rhymes about funny animals playing soccer; loosely inspired by the last world championship. In this version you can even score goals and kick balls with your fingers!
We hope you enjoy it!
With kind regards,
