I hope some of you have heard of Oompa a quality online site for gear, toys, and furniture from ages newborn to 6 years. Well Milanie Cleere of Oompa ( who I think is super great) has founded a sister site Lunchbox.com. Now the title may confuse you, so let me introduced to you the site, and what Milanie has to say about it.
Lunchbox Reviews is the brainchild of me, Milanie Cleere. The site launched quietly on Friday, August 20th 2010. I'm a wife, a mom and a business owner. While I prefer natural, non-battery operated toys, I begrudgingly realized there are many educational apps for young children. Letting my kids play with an iPod Touch would not make me "that" mom or a bad parent. I started looking for quality applications and was overwhelmed with the number available. I tried a few that were fantastic and others that were complete duds. Sure, at 99 cents an app, we're not going to break the bank, but the cost of the truly awful apps started to add up.
I wanted a filter, a source for finding quality educational iPhone and iPad apps for young children. And where there's a need...
I created Lunchbox Reviews as the de facto resource for finding quality children's mobile apps. I'm a Gen-X, tech-savvy mom who appreciates design and an intuitive UI. I'm someone without a lot of time and care what my children play with. I'm picky.
I think the idea behind the site is simply wonderful. Like Milanie said, .99 cents probably won't break the bank but when you have a few kids ex specially, every dollar spent counts. I have even been tricked into a few Apps that were totally inappropriate or not really what I was going for, for my kids. In a tech savvy world it's are responsibility as parents to help cut back on some of the "garbage" so to say and do are best to put into our children's hands the positives of the technological world. As much as I know some people want to cut back on it, It is becoming a a very necessary part of the world and by the time I'm children reach adulthood it will only be that much more important.
It's nice to see Mom approved reviews before allowing the kids to try an App and it's nice to know in advance what may not be the right choice for your child.
LunchBox Reviews also lets you suggest Apps for the site and sign up to submit your own reviews to!
To get you better acquainted with their new site one lucky reader will win a 25$ gift code for Oompa just in time for the Holidays, just for checking out LunchBox Reviews. ( Curious about Oompa? Stay tuned next month to learn a little more about Oompa)
