Cyphers Kids Club Real Augmented Fun

My little dude has been playing with the iPhone since he was about 3. He has a solid 2 years of playing games, and he knows what he likes! We recently got to try out the new Cypher Kids Club Interactive cards and he instantly loved playing with them. So what is Cypher Kids Club? They are 3D Flashcards that bring learning to life on the iPod, iPhone and iPad. You can purchase the cards at Target, then simply download the free iTunes app that relates to the cards you bought – Wild Animal Adventures, Numbers or Letters. My son loved them all but had a preference to the Animals.

Imagine being able to make a Great White Shark go for a swim in your living room and even watch it take a swipe at your little sister’s head? How cool is that. Not only are the cards fun, but they are also educational. As you load up each card, it narrates interesting facts.

Looking at the Great White Shark through an iPhone

Each card is double sided, on one side is the picture of the animal, number or letter. On the other side is the marker that you will need to position your phone over in order to enter the 3D world.

Load up the free iTunes app, then choose the card you want to start with by tapping the image from the scrolling library.

Simply hold your phone over the card and through magic (and your phone’s camera!) it will pick up the image and transport your child into a 3D world. We had lots of fun making the animals and numbers come alive in our living room.

Is that a Giraffe on Your Table?

After the Animals, the animated numbers were his favorite. He liked counting along and interacting with the little character on screen.

All in all, their are so many ways to play with the cards and to interact with your child. Their are even quirly “Did you know…” facts printed directly on the card that I was able to read to him. With a little help, my 5 year old was able to get going with the Cypher Kids Club interactive cards with little assistance from me.

The cards are so compact and because the app sits on my iPhone, we’re thinking these are perfect to take with us as we travel this Christmas. Still time for you to purchase at Target – they would make the perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite little techy :) Check out the Target Store Locator to help you find the closest Target carrying Cypher near you.

    Wow! There are many ways to entertain children nowadays. But what called my attention most is where you said your kid has been playing games in the iphone since he was three. I mean, I am only 27 and I remember my favorite toy was a doll until my brother got a nintendo when I was 6. And I’ve never got attracted to video games.

    It is amazing how technology has grown since then. It let me thinking whether this is something good or bad.

    Does your website have a contact page? I’m having trouble
    locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email. I’ve got some suggestions for
    your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way,
    great site and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

    Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against
    hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve
    worked hard on. Any suggestions?
