It’s App Party-Celebrate With Us!

We had a TerrificTuesday here at FeeFiFoFun
as we celebrated TWO major events!

“Bye bye terrible twos!”
Nell turns 3.


Jumping on a bed filled with birthday balloons is a great way to start the day-especially when you’re 3!

“No more babies in the house! I’m a big girl now,” announced a gleeful toddler in the early morning sunlight.

Birthdays bring wishes
Kissed by the sun
Slide on a rainbow
Ring a big bell
Sing Happy Birthday
To little Nell!

Sources tell me that a blow-out celebration including face painting, a clown, arts and crafts and a make-your-own pizza lunch is in the works for this weekend. We’ll be sure to report back with all of the details of what is sure to be a gala event!

And the icing on the cake? The release of our
already critically praised app 
 Make Me Music

This is the second app that we’ve released and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Our first app, Flutterby Butterflies is a fun way to learn colors, letters and rhyming words and was released in June.

Both apps, as well as our website and many of our books feature artwork by legendary illustrator and “His Royal Master of Images to Their Majesties The Beatles”, Alan Aldridge. Alan is a Whitbred award winner, and he has collaborated with Andy Warhol.

In addition to Alan, we’ve also joined forces with Cirque du Soleil  composers Hugo Bombardier & Robert Meunier to create our theme song and some of the melody tracks featured on Make Me Music. We’re living up to our mantra of “experiential ART by Big Artists for little artists”!

Check out our press release for more info on Make Me Music and what we’re doing to promote music education for our little ones.

And don’t forget to sing Happy Birthday–even if it isn’t your birthday, it’s someone’s birthday and it’ll just make you and everyone around you SMILE!


Perpetual (e)Motion

Everyday is a day of adventure. The sun is up, it’s a day for the beach, or the kite park, or visiting the turtles in the garden. Rain, rain, go away? No way.

It’s a day for my boots to splash through puddles. There’s just too much in the world to discover. How can We sit still? Yes, WE, the little ones who are now very mobile and you can’t catch us, no matter how hard you try.

Daddy says I’m like the bunny that keeps “going and going and going.”  Silly Papa. Bunnies don’t “go” they “hop and hop and hop.” Hey, what a good idea!

Let’s hop around the dinner table! Wheeeeee!

Mommy reads everything she can to figure out where my off switch is, but maybe she should read this from “What to Expect” (toddlers, 19 months)  I especially like this story, because it recommends squeezing clay and squishing paint as a good indoor exercise. Oh, the fun I have with that! PAINT e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e.

Sometimes when I’m out and about, the big people say things like, “hold on tight, look left and look right…” and make me really look twice when we cross the street.  I learned that if I put my other hand up high in the air, people in cars might see me better because they’re big and I’m little.  I think that works, because everyone always stops and waves. I have a friend who has a leash, just like my dog.  Her parents say it’s because it’s safer.  That’s what ABC news says too:

I don’t know about that, but if she gets to have a leash, does she also get to drink out of the  dog bowl?
Hmmm, that sounds like fun too.

I wonder where I should wipe my
