Mezmedia today is delighted to announce the release of Bamba Surprise Words 1.0.0, another exciting addition to the Bamba series of learning apps for kids. Bamba Surprise Words combines spelling, surprises and toy collecting into one fun app. Inspired by the Japanese Gashapon machine, kids insert a coin into one of three wacky gumball machines to collect a special Egg. The Egg ‘hatches’ a hidden toy and word. Kids then arrange letters to form the word and the toy is revealed. There are hundreds of words for kids to learn!
Each toy is wonderfully illustrated and voiced in English. When the Egg ‘hatches’ a toy, for example an apple, the letters ‘A,P,P,L,E’ also appear scattered around the screen. Kids have to arrange the letters to form the word ‘APPLE’ to complete the game. Every time a toy is revealed, it is stored away in a magic box. After that, the game starts again with another gumball machine and ends with a new toy and a new word to arrange. And it goes on and on and on!
The magic box can be accessed any time to see the toys that have been collected and the words that go with it. Toys that have not been collected are in silhouette. There are also collectible ‘special-edition’ toys that will only reveal themselves only on rare occasions.
Bamba Surprise Words is a simple game that’s easy for kids as young as three to master. The actions are repetitive and rewarding because a new toy and a new word is learnt every time the game is played. Kids will enjoy the surprise or ‘peekaboo’ element of the app as well. With over two hundred toys in this release (and more in the coming updates), Bamba Surprise Words is bound to keep kids occupied.
“Our kids were crazy over Gashapon machines with those plastic eggs that each held a hidden toy within. So a kids app that combined surprises, toy collecting and spelling was the natural outcome!” said John Ng, co-founder of Mezmedia, the studio behind the Bamba series of education apps for kids.
