The Puddings Gift Guide 2016: 4D Flashcards, Augmented Reality for Kids

There are somethings that on the surface you think look quite cool. Then there are things that are actually more amazing than you ever imagined! Well the 4D Space+ flashcards sent to us from Octagon Studio are such an item.

When I was approached to review them for the gift guide I thought they looked interesting. Knowing how Pie loves Space I thought they were a good stocking filler for him.

The 4D flashcards arrived and they are good quality material, but the fun begins when you download the special app…

Downloading the app was super easy. All the instructions come in the packet. Once opened the app needs access to your camera. As you hover the opened app over the 4D flashcards look what happens…

The planets literally popped off the cards! You can turn them round, zoom in and all the orbiting moons are there as well.

Even better this lunar buggy popped up and then you could drive it across the moon!

I was seriously impressed and can’t wait for Pie to play with these Christmas morning I know he is going to love them. So I went back to the company to get a bit more information from them and this is what they sent me:

‘We produce and sell educational products that help make teaching and learning more fun. Some children require visual learning or are in special education needs. These products are a perfect resource to help make that happen.

We do this by using the latest technology called Augmented Reality. AR is the process of superimposing digitally rendered images onto our real-world surroundings, giving a sense of an illusion.’

I am by no means an expert in Augmented Reality. What I can say is I love it! Kids are going to think this is amazing. It’s so interactive even as adults we spent ages looking through the 4D flashcards and getting thoroughly engrossed in what we could do.

The 4D flashcards cover several subjects including Animals+, Dinosaurs+ and Space+. There is even a colouring book so that children can bring their own creations to life! Prices start from £9.90 and you can get 10% off with the code PETITEPUDDING when you order them here.

I can not recommend the 4D flashcards from Octagon Studios enough, they are a  must have this Christmas.
