Injini Balloons Game
Pop! Pop! POP! Do you know who loves popping floating balloons? Jelly, our gum drop friend, that’s who! With your child’s help, Jelly can pop balloons to his heart’s content on a beautiful spring day. The balloons come in a variety of colors and shapes. Jelly thinks of a balloon and your child simply taps to pop the one he wants. Jelly responds in delight by blushing the matching color or shape. As the game progresses the number and speed of the floating balloons increases.
Developmental Benefits: The Balloons game practices visual discrimination, response inhibition, following simple rules and hand-eye coordination. It also uses repetition and reinforcement, which can promote the development of cognitive competence (Stipek & Byler, 1997).
