September means none other than back to school time, so let Daniel Tiger help your child with some of their early learning skills!

For a limited time, Amazon is offering a download of The Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Day & Night App for just $1.99

 

The app, created by PBS Kids, has won a Children’s Technology Review Editor’s Choice Award and is being recommended by the fine folks over at Parents’ Choice.

Head on over to Amazon.com and download your copy today & have a great start of the school year everyone!!

 

Sections within this app include:
Doctor
Play Doctor Daniel with the instruments that doctors use. When children play doctor with Daniel Tiger, they’re in charge. This can make it more comfortable when it’s their turn to be the patient.
 
Bedtime
Help Daniel Tiger get ready to go to sleep – and your children can be thinking about their own bedtime routines and learn things to help them at bedtime.
 
Bathroom
Wash, brush and flush with Daniel Tiger and play about and practice bathroom routines.
 
Sticker Book
Children can have fun making up their own stories as they play with dozens of stickers in Daniel’s house and Neighborhood.
 
Disclosure: My connection to Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood is no secret, but in the interest of full transparency, Out Of the Blue Ent. is involved in the creation of this app.  I still think it’s pretty cool..just saying :)

Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood - Angela Santomero

As you’re probably aware by now, our little Daniel Tiger from PBS Kids’ Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood will be welcoming a new baby into his neighborhood tomorrow, Thursday August 14th. We are VERY excited about this BIG news!

We will celebrate the new baby with a Twitter Party at 9-10 pm ET (Be sure to use #DanielTigerPBS).

We will also be discussing important steps that new families might wish to consider when welcoming a new child into their home, especially in regard to siblings. We hope that the discussion will aid those families in similar situations & continue beyond!!

Hey parents. Remember when you first had a baby? That feeling of waiting and waiting to meet the baby and then she’s finally here!

 

Well, premiering a new show is NOT like that.

 

Premiering a new show is like loving your baby up for 4 years and then they finally go to preschool and share their brilliance with the world.

 

Premiering a new show is like THAT!Creative Galaxy Premiere

 

 

I want to thank all of you who welcomed Creative Galaxy with open arms.

 

I want to thank all of you who responded to the hard work from my team at Out Of The Blue Ent & so many other talented individuals that are behind Arty and his Creative Galaxy friends!

 

Thank you for being open to being inspired and for creating along with Arty!

And as an answer to some of those summer blahs, please go make some of our crafts!  Arty’s Starry Night Light and the Homemade Snow Globe are two of my favorites. Make them and PLEASE share them with me here!

 

I will share some of our craft recipes with you and even post some of Arty’s crafts. Here’s to inspiration! GO BE AMAZING!!!!

 

While the Creative Galaxy premiere in NYC was an incredible event, the positive reviews and supportive feedback was more than I could have ever imagined. Here’s just a few worth mentioning:
