I have heard many people mentioned the Huff and Puff app from Duckie Deck, and have been very curious about the app. How can you make the airplane move by blowing into the iPad? Today the app is free, and I did get to try it firsthand. I would recommend you try it with your kids too. It is just fun to play. It is also a good opportunity to explain some science to kids too. So make sure to go out blow on some real dandelions after you play with app.
Here is the introduction from the App store:
Huff n’ Puff is a series of fun scenarios in which one puff of breath, like the wave of a magic wand, will accomplish your task – make crumbs disappear from the screen, blow out all the candles on a cake or inflate balloons. No need to wait for your next birthday party, start practicing now!
Most games respond only to a swipe or a tap of the finger. Now, a youngster can have a more direct interaction with the digital world by using the power of their own breath. Just blow some air near the iPad’s or iPhone’s iOS 5 microphone and delight in the realistic effect on-screen.
Huff n’ Puff lets children learn about the physical effects of wind and air, in a simplified setting. They can test their own force while observing the resulting phenomenon and, while they’re at it, expand that lung capacity!
With colorful graphics, dynamic elements and fun sound effects, the app is sure to capture a child’s imagination. The simple user interface makes it easy for kids to play independently, or together with a friend or family member.
It is a delightful app for kids to have fun while learning and developing their motor skills and coordination.
Does it sound fun to you? Give it a try!
