In this gadget age, tablets and smartphones are now among the most common ‘toys’ children entertain themselves with. It is no wonder that educational apps targeted at children have seen an influx over the last few years, with preschool education apps such as BabyBus, Roam & Wander and e-learning platform SmarTots raking in millions in funding.

Hong Kong tech startup Aedify Technology has also hopped onto the educational app bandwagon, adding two more mobile app exercises to its educational Toothy Buddies app lineup. Titled Rainbow Slide and Butterfly Kaleidoscope, the apps are available in both English and Chinese. Targeted at kids to focus on training their eye-hand and spatial judgement, the exercises purportedly aim to help children gain a better control of their fine motor skills. Unlike some educational apps, which focus largely on penmanship drills that can be dreary and boring, Toothy Buddy exercises utilize interactive and engaging games to help children move forward and improve essential skills.
