Introducing the Tiny Travelers Game Series

Travel expert and mommy blogger, The L.A. Travel Mom, has released the first edition of the Tiny Travelers gaming app, based in New York City and available in the iTunes store.

December 2, 2014 – It’s the newest way to keep your babies and toddlers entertained around the world — send them on an adventure with the Tiny Travelers.

From professional traveler and mommy blogger The L.A. Travel Mom, this newly launched destination learning tool is designed to teach your baby or toddler some basic facts about where they are going as well as keep them occupied during one of the most stressful situations as a parent — travel.

“I have used apps as a travel tool on planes with my children for years and am always amazed at how they not only absorb and understand the technology but also learn about their subject matter, which is why I wanted to provide a tool that can not only help children developmentally master sensory motor skills but teach them some important lessons, as well.” — Janeen Christoff, L.A. Travel Mom

The first edition in this new children’s game series for young adventurers is focused on New York City and was released in the iTunes App Store on Cyber Monday, Dec. 1, 2014.

• The Tiny Travelers game series is designed to keep babies and toddlers busy while traveling to destinations around the world.

• In Tiny Travelers NYC, teach your toddlers some basic facts about New York City through interactive games and a storybook with basic image association

• Fun for the whole family, help your child virtually pack the right items for the trip in their suitcase — and watch out if you get it wrong!

• On a plane, on a bus, on a boat or on a train, Tiny Travelers are there to entertain your children on the go.

About Tiny Travelers Games

Tiny Travelers Games were created by Janeen Christoff and Catherine Cavanagh, both moms to young daughters. Christoff and Cavanagh saw a need in the marketplace for a series of apps that could give small children a sense of place while traveling abroad. They have answered that need with the Tiny Travelers Games series, which will blossom from a single city in 2014 to a variety of locales around the world in the coming year.
