We have just played with the coolest flashcards ever! We were sent two packs of Octagon 4D Flashcards. One pack is the occupation series & the other pack is animals. At first glance, they look like your average pack of flashcards. The animal pack has animals from A – Z beginning with Ant & ending with Zebra. The Octaland occupation cards have people with different occupations from A – Z beginning with Albert the Astronaut & ending with Zack the Zoo Keeper.
In order to make the cards come to life, you download a free app from the app store. Each type of card has its own app to be downloaded. Once the matching app is downloaded, simply open the app & point the camera at the card. The picture becomes a moving 4D image! This video will give you a better idea of how the 4D cards work.
The kids & I are totally blown away by these cards. There is a lot of learning in them without the 4D but when you add the 4D they become amazingly interesting & modern. The characters move & show you their occupation.
The animals make noises & look so realistic! The food cards can be downloaded & printed for free here. The animals only walk over to foods they actually eat. And, if you move the food card, the animal will follow it. Watch the animal cards come to life in this amazing video.
As you can see from the videos, these amazing cards are unique, interactive & full of learning opportunities.
I have two packs of cards to giveaway! They would make exciting & educational stocking stuffers. There is one Octaland occupation series & one animal card pack up for grabs! Enter here for your chance to win these amazing 4D flashcard packs. Competition closes on December 15, 2015 at 10am GMT.
Disclosure: We were very kindly sent the cards to try & giveaway but as always, all opinions are my own.
