Calling all future mathematicians and storytellers! Count, drag, match, and enjoy as the seemingly simple buttons you create come alive becoming part of a wildly imaginative cornucopia of storytelling. Ordinary pieces of cardboard shuffle into a variety of positions, each time becoming something new and unexpected. One bluefish with a fancy bow tie, two peanuts for a hungry elephant, three candles for a cow’s birthday cake, four gumballs for a bubble blowing frog, and five silly bananas on a camel’s back! These are just some of the stories you will help bring to life as the buttons you create set the stage for a journey through counting and the depths of your imagination!

Tiggly Cardtoons will help you learn basic math ideas such as one-to-one matching, counting, and equal sets while stretching your imagination and sense of wonderment. These creative learning math stories are recommended for ages 3 and up.

- 25 imaginative stories focused on numbers
- Unique illustrations with textures taken from the real world
- Guided counting gestures important for developing counting skills
- Lots of free play surprises. Don’t forget to explore!
- No third party advertising
- No in-app purchases

- Your child will create buttons by tapping and dragging them to targets, and listen to the narrator count as they interact with them
- The buttons will transform into a variety of unexpected objects including 1 tiny flower, 2 giant peanuts, 3 brave little mice, 4 leaves for a hungry herbivore to eat, or 5 yellow fish playing hide and seek with a submarine.
- And, that’s only the beginning of the story! Tiggly Cardtoons will help your child concretize abstract math in the context of familiar yet surprising events.

- Ever wonder what you could make with two pieces of cardboard? How about if we add a third piece? A forth one? A fifth one? Creativity is about constant experimentation, surprises, and imagining things in many different ways. We invite your child to imagine what a piece of cardboard could transform into -- and in so doing, encourage them to imagine all the possibilities that abound in their everyday lives.

Love it!

Absolutely love these apps.

ILoveFree! ,

At a loss for words!

This app is pretty amazing! The stories are so beautiful and engaging. There's also that added element that you never know which story you're going to get at any given time. It's awesome! I wish there were more numbers as my 4 year old niece has already learned her numbers to 20, but she still enjoys this app nonetheless and I find her coming back to it again and again. I think that that speaks volumes as to how much attention this app COMMANDS. Much thanks and appreciation to your Tiggly team!!! :)

Learning can be fun when done right

I wish i had apps like this when i was small, for me learning was always presented like a mandatory chore task in school. At least my kids can have it better now :)
And the other reviewers which say one can’t play with just the fingers anymore are wrong.
One can still play with just the fingers if one doesn’t have the toys, one just has to watch a video once then which explains how it’s better with the toys.
