MONTREAL- (November 18, 2008) Kutoka Interactive, producer of the award-winning Mia edutainment software series, is proud to announce the launch of the third title in its beloved Didi&Ditto series of fun and educational software for the PC and Macintosh. The new game continues the company's tradition of high-quality production values: appealing characters, unique and distinctive graphics, feature-film quality animation and solid educational content. The engaging learning adventure, Didi&Ditto Preschool
- Mother Nature's Visit, is targeted at children ages two to four years old and will catch and keep children's attention with exciting activities related to pre-reading, pre-math, science, music and art.
In this adventure of the brother/sister twins Didi and Ditto, we find our two zany beavers preparing a reception for Mother Nature's visit to their hometown called Smart Valley, a special, wacky world where spiral trees and funny characters abound. Zolt, a sneaky purple wolf, is trying to ruin the party by breaking all of the musical instruments and hiding all of the food.
He then plans to step in and be the hero when Mother Nature arrives. Didi and Ditto notice that Zolt is acting strange and decide to keep an eye on him. It is up to the player to decide which beaver will watch Zolt very carefully while the other one helps Hootdini get ready for the festivities.
In the game, children will work on recognizing letters and numbers, counting, classifying, identifyingshapes and sounds, as well as developing observation abilities, understanding oral instructions, and more. These skills are seamlessly incorporated into the game play as the player helps Didi and Ditto. There are 16 entertaining activities and lots of funny animations. As in the previous Didi&Ditto games, children can choose to play the game as either the female character (Didi) or the male character (Ditto), a choice that can be very important to a preschooler.
A Grade-Based Learning Series
Each title in the Didi&Ditto series is designed to strengthen and reinforce what children will be learning at school and covers multiple subjects. At the start of each game there is a choice of three difficulty levels giving the games a great deal of replayability. "For many years, parents have mentioned their desire to have software for their preschoolers", said Richard Vincent, Kutoka's CEO and Creative Director.
"Didi&Ditto Preschool fills that gap and is a an extraordinary high-quality fun game we are very proud of. This software helps children acquire age-appropriate knowledge and skills that will help them later, when they start kindergarten."
Fun AND Educational
Children love to play the educational activities in Didi&Ditto because they were designed to be FUN. Another motivation comes from the fact that the activities need to be completed in order to finish the game. So, the game supports, as well as develops, children's essential skills while they are having an terrific time playing. Children can play the whole game but they also have the option to choose specific skills to directly focus on and practice.
