Sumatran Tigers?

Sumatran-Tiger-HeroSumatran Tigers is a rare kind of tiger that are in Indonesia. Gorgeous arent they? But beautiful things usually do not last long. The conversation status of Sumatran Tiger now is CR, which also means critically endangered. Today there are only about 400 of Sumatran Tigers left.

So what can we do? First of all, we could follow the Smithsonian’s National Zoo social media like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. They have launch a campaign to increase awareness about these 400 Sumatran Tiger and hope that we could help to spread the word out. Below there is a video about their campaign.

The problem on animal being endangered is getting more serious nowadays. Even though there are many organization that are made to protect these animal, it is not enough. We should start to educate our children on issues as such, only the younger generation can help us to save these animals. On May first Amerikids will launch our alpha version of Saving Panda game where it will educate young children about endangered animal. For this version of the game we will only be focusing on Pandas.

Is Kindle Fire good for your kids..?

When it comes to buying a tablet for your child, the first thing that came to our mind is either iPad or any android tablet. This is because many parents are familiar with these devices and think that their kid should have one of it as well. It is unlikely that parents will say “hey, lets buy a kindle fire for our kids”. This is because most adults will automatically sees kindle as a reading devices rather than a gaming devices for their children. But that isn’t the case anymore as Kindle Fire HD now is definitely more than just a reading device.

One that they differentiate Kindle Fire from other tablets is their Kindle FreeTime. Kindle FreeTime is not just your ordinary parental control. It can do more than that.


1. Ability to set multiple “little” user

One thing that is unique about Kindle FreeTime is that, parents can set up several account for their kids instead of all of them sharing one. Each profile can be set with different profile picture and age. Besides that, parents can customize what content to be access by each child.


2. Ability to add limitation.

Another unique features of Kindle FreeTime is that parents could set the amount of time their kids can spend on the devices and than the device will automatically shut down once the time limit reaches. Parents could also customize the time spent on application, videos, book and several more settings.

3. Custom made for the little ones

Once Kindle FreeTime is turn on, the background and the font of the tablet will change to a kid friendly design. Because of the kid friendly design, parents could easily differentiate whether their kid are on Kindle FreeTime interface or no due to the distinct blue background of the app.


To sum up, Kindle Fire indeed a good tablet that parents should consider for their child. Since Kindle Fire is a android based device, there are already many application that are available for their children. Parents could also subscribe to Kindle FreeTime unlimited to gain access to all popular books, video, application and games for learning. Here is a video for a betting understanding on Kindle FreeTime


Top 5 application for Kids!

April 15

How do I pick the top 5 games? I went through all the games and played it myself then I came out with the top 5 games. It is not in order.

1. Angry Birds



Angry Birds is develop by Rovio Entertainment. Although this game has been around for a long time, it still a great game for children to play. Angry Birds is a very simple game that uses slingshot to shoot the bad pigs. Different levels have different structure that prevents the birds from hitting the pigs. Therefore it requires thinking before slingshot the birds. This will enhance the children’s thinking skills while playing angry bird.


2. Subway Surfers


Subway Surfers is a “endless running” game developed by Kiloo. This game is about a kid who is escaping from getting caught, as the kid painted graffiti on the subway station. The objective of this game is to run! run! run! evading on coming trains and evading obstacle. Through this game children can learn to react faster. As the games goes longer the character will run even faster. Therefore children need to react fast in order to evade obstacle.


3. Cut the rope 2


Cut the rope 2 is develop by ZeptoLab and the game was release on december 2013. With the success of Cut the rope, Zepto continues the game with a new version and consists even more level and different obstacle. The main objective of this game is to feed the little green creature named Om Nom while collecting stars. This game is cute and definitely a good game for children sit down playing while thinking how to feed through different obstacle.


4.Color and draw


This application is develop by Tipitap. Color and Draw is one of the best tablet drawing application for kids. It has received many awards like “Creative Child Magazine Best App” and also featured on Google Play Editor’s picks. This application allows children to unleash their creativity through coloring with different strokes, stickers, curated palette and many more. Besides that, it also offers free drawing so that kids will not get bored after they have complete coloring the pictures given.


5. Talking Tom


Talking Tom Cat 2 is developed by Out Fit 7. With the success of the first version, this version offers additional function and Tom now has its own place! Also Talking Tom Cat 2 now includes mini games for user to play and also accessories for Tom to wear.



These are the 5 games that I personally thinks that it is good for children. Not only it can help them to pass time but also to improve them by allowing them to play games like these. On May 1st Amerikids will release the alpha version of saving panda game on Google Play. This is a good game for kids to play as it teaches how to protect the endangered Panda from harm’s way. Their mission is to follow the clues and save the Panda! The following is the teaser of the game.
