*Explore Learn Play*

Tybee Sea is a child-directed underwater adventure that embraces the concept of explore, learn, and play. Tybee Sea is a collection of four aquatic locations that are selected using a child-friendly interactive adventure map. Each location features numerous interactive objects and activities that are specifically designed to focus on key developmental skills.


An important feature of Tybee Sea is the concept of open exploration. Unlike a story book, Tybee Sea gives your child complete control over where they go and how they want to experience the activities and objects contained within each aquatic area. In our testing, we have seen toddlers easily navigate the child-friendly menus and engage in their favorite activities. Each time your child picks up Tybee Sea their experience may be entirely different because they are at the helm.


Tybee Sea was designed by Speech/Language Pathologists and Early Intervention Specialists who have worked specifically with children for more than 25 years. Embedded within each location are objects and activities that are designed to stimulate the growth of important developmental skills. The comprehensive design criteria addresses five key developmental areas:

*New Words*: Both spoken and written words are expressed to encourage verbal imitation, vocabulary expansion, and emergent literacy.
*Cause and Effect*: Engaging Tybee's friends and aquatic features allows your child to have an impact on Tybee's underwater world.
*Early Problem Solving*: Promotes decision making and identification of situations that will challenge your child's cognitive abilities.
*Fine Motor Skills*: Use of gestures on specific locations encourages precise motor control.
*Shared Play Experience*: Ease and flow of play progression lends itself to turn-taking for children and parents.


Making an activity fun is just as important as making it educational. Seeing a child giggle at our sea creatures while saying a brand new word is extremely rewarding for us as educators and developers and something we love to share with parents.

We have included 20 sea-themed activities with Tybee Sea. There are 5 preview activities on our website.

Parent's Guide: An in-app discussion created by our educators introduces parents to developmental skills that are targeted by Tybee Sea. The included guide is great for parents looking for an overview of their child's skill development.
