Many of you are familiar with the Emmy award-winning WordWorld, a terrific children's show (that my kids loved when they were a bit younger) where everything is made of the letters that spell its name. You'll notice in the picture to the left, the cake is made up of the letters c-a-k-e.

**Free for a limited time!** New and Breakthrough! PlaySquare is Touchable Television that lets you play right in the story world. First Episode: WordWorld’s “Happy Birthday Dog” in which kids learn letters and words as they play.
PlaySquare is more than an app, it’s a world of entertainment and adventure for children 3-6.
PlaySquare introduces Touchable Television, a nutritious, active, engaging new media experience that’s a story and a game all in one. Touchable Television allows you to finger draw on the screen to become part of the action of the story. Kids are engaged from start to finish and when kids are engaged, they are learning!
Here’s what’s unique about PlaySquare: Your child helps propel the story along. He or she is a part of it!
Our first episode, WordWorld’s “Happy Birthday Dog”, takes place on Dog’s birthday. Dog thinks all his friends have forgotten his birthday. Once your child gathers all the party pieces together, Dog finds himself with a happy surprise!
•Rich, colorful, award-winning animation

Developed by a team of media experts from Nickelodeon, Sesame Workshop, LeapFrog, and MIT, PlaySquare is the experience they’ve always believed kids’ TV should be: an active engagement, where they don’t even realize they’re learning while they play.
