Mochu Pop - Language Immersion for Babies and Toddlers
by: Kadho • 63
Mochu Pop by Kadho is a fun and creative game aimed at helping toddlers develop their cognitive, linguistic, social, and emotional skills, based on the scientific principles of neurofoundation. This bright and inviting game challenges your little one to pop the brightly colored balloons, depending on the color and shape shown to them. Each pop will expose them to different sounds, in English, French, Spanish, and Italian.
The game is easy to play, and stimulating for youngsters: it's ideal for playing along with them, but with parental control features, you can be safe in the knowledge that they're safe to play on their own too.
As they progress through the game, they are exposed to even more sounds and shapes: you can set multiple profiles for each of your children, and track their progress by registering and logging onto kadho.com.
Mochu Pop has a bright and inviting design, with vivid colors and cute characters which will immediately capture kids imaginations. Jovial ukulele music accompanies each game, with fun sound affects delivered in high quality.
Getting going is easy: simply add your child's name, date of birth and sex, then pick the a cute animal avatar. You can set up multiple kids on the same device, and parents can register and log in to track their children's progress, and learn more about the educational value of the app.
The games are fun, but have a very real educational element, testing: linguistics, memory, hand-eye coordination, impulse control, and mental flexibility. Sounds are available in four languages, setting the foundations early for your kids' ability to pick up foreign languages.
After each level, you find out how many points have been scored and how many new sounds your child has been exposed to.
Gameplay is a little repetitive, even for youngsters, and there is no clear 'leveling'... you progress without knowing what stage you are up to, and there doesn't seem to be a way of tracking points or progress through the app itself. Instead, parents must go to kadho.com and log in - this should be much easier, or available through the app itself.
The game instructs your children to ONLY pop the balloons of certain colors and shapes. But there are random balloon animals which float in every now and again, which when popped give bonus points and deliver a bonus phrase in one of the 4 languages. This isn't very well explained and some kids may miss out of this feature if they follow the instructions to the letter.

PRESERVE A CHILD’S LANGUAGE LEARNING ABILITIES
Kadho’s games and ebooks mimic living in English, French, Spanish, and Italian speaking countries. Our apps expose children to the world’s most important sounds identified and selected by scientists, linguists, and child development experts for learning the world’s languages. These are the fundamental “foreign sounds” that make up languages. These sounds are presented in a custom manner that exposes a child to these sounds in a natural manner they can learn.
The goals of these games are to develop not only a child’s language abilities but their entire Neurofoundation™.
Founded by two PhDs, and being backed by a strong network of early childhood educators, linguists, neuroscientists and child psychologists, Kadho is utilizing the last 50 years of brain science to develop games and eBook to maintain and enhance the innate language abilities that children are born with.
Over 50 years of science has shown the most critical phases of early childhood education actually begin at birth till age three. This time is a window of opportunity for the proper formation of Neurofoundation™ for the brains core connections needed for basic sensory, social and emotional processing and understanding. Kadho aims to lead the advancement of child development research and improve children’s lives everywhere. Kadho’s goals are to support, enhance and supplement traditional child raising so that, no matter what a child’s economic or social circumstance might be, he can reach his full language potential.
