Popar offers a cool selection of fun augmented reality books, puzzles and posters. These educational items can be used along with an Apple or Android tablet or smartphone to enhance your child's learning experience in entertaining and unexpected ways.
We reviewed 2 of Popar's books, Sea Life and Bugs. These awesome 3D books are among my kiddos' favorite things right now and I must admit, I am pretty impressed myself. These books would be fantastic educational resources on their own, but the fact that you can use them with technology to garner even more information is pretty awesome.
Each hardcover book has 36 color pages full of information and each page has some type of augmented reality interaction. From games to read alongs to videos...these virtual reality explorations are non-stop fun! The app is free with the purchase of the book and has kid-friendly user tools that walk you step-by-step through how to use your book.
Once you've put your tablet/phone in the right place the whole page comes to life. The images are clear and vivid and you have the ability to zoom in and view everything at any angle...very cool! Any time you come across something you want to learn more about, you click it and more information pops up for a more in-depth study on that particular creature.
The back of each book has a section to quiz you on what you've learned to reinforce all of the cool information in the book. If you get the answer correct, you get to interactively play with the creature the question was about. So fun!
My kiddos especially enjoy the Virtual Reality mode which allows them to create and play in their habitat wherever they go with just the tablet...no book needed. They can turn the tablet into an ocean or bug habitat and interact with creatures in the car, at a restaurant, in the waiting room, etc.
These books offer so many cool features and provide hours of educational entertainment and engaging fun.
