Leave It To My Kids To Find Quality..
Among my favorite things about my itouch are the amazing applications. There are some really fascinating things out there. My pre-schooler happily traces letters to spell words, my elementary kids do math problems and word games endlessly. I have fun finding my new favorite...this can change daily. There are so many to discover.
The brilliant minds that create these things have really out-done themselves: I have been listening to my kids chuckle for a few days now while they were playing on it. I basked in their laughter for awhile until I asked what was so funny. They explained that they found a game where you slide a monkey side to side, who is standing on a bar of soap. Oh, and the monkey is peeing in the toilet. Your goal is help him with the proper aim in order to fill the toilet. If you miss too much, or if you hit the electrical outlet, it's over for you. There is nothing graphic or too distasteful. But my thought is, isn't it an oxymoron if you are smart enough to figure out how to create this extensive animation, AND you still think it's funny to try to get a monkey to pee in a toilet??
