Top 100 App in education in 40+ countries for 2 months! Candles hold a strange fascination over young children. Toddlers love blowing out candles and singing happy birthday. They can never get enough. ★

Now they can do it over and over until they are all out of breath — without risking any burns or sugar overloads.

✭✭✭Try our new FREE app for kids✭✭✭

HappiTaps: Beary Happi. It's a talking teddy bear, with a rattle, peekaboo game, songs, stories and more. Featured in the NYTimes Hot Toys of the Season!


In appreciation to our loyal app following, big and small, we've created this FREE, fun little app to help toddlers practice blowing candles, learn to recognize their age in numbers (1, 2 or 3), have fun singing Happy Birthday and make a wish without playing with actual fire or making a mess with frosting!

There are three simple modes:
• I'm turning 1 with one candle
• I'm turning 2 with two candles
• I'm turning 3 with three candles


➔ Candles 4-99. As it turns out, adults also LOVE blowing out candles.
➔ Personalize the song and greeting with custom recordings!
➔ Email song, greeting and picture of the cake to friends and family (QuickTime required for personalized greeting playback in the receiving PC)

You can listen to the happy birthday song professionally played on the piano. We would have loved to include an artist singing the song, but in one of the strangest twists in the world of intellectual property: the lyrics of the Happy Birthday song are copyrighted!!!! (It gives you a sense of how wrong the system is.) No real harm, though. You can sing along to the music with your little one.

So, Happy Birthday to all!

IMPORTANT NOTE: The iPod Touch doesn't have a built in mic. You will be able to listen to the song and see the images, but for the candles to blow out you will need an external mic.

IMPORTANT: The blowing ONLY works at the END of the song. (Remember to blow hard and close to device mic.) You can also tap-and-hold anywhere on the screen for two seconds to blow off the candles before the song is over.

Learning fun. Fun learning.
