AWARD-WINNING BABY PRODUCT'S COMPANY, LEVERACTIVE,
HAS LOTS TO "GIGGLE" ABOUT
Giggles Computer Funtime For Baby ™
Wins the Coveted 2006 iParenting Media Excellent Products Award
and Dr. Toy Smart Play/Smart Toy Product of Excellence
Rochester, NY (May 2, 2006) - As we learned back in the 70's through
the persona of young, Mikey in the Life cereal commercials, sometimes
things that are good for us are actually fun, too. And in 2006,
such is the case of specialty toy industry newcomer, Leveractive™.
Proving the brilliance, marketability and fun of its product line,
Giggles Computer Funtime For Baby, Leveractive just garnered two
of the most coveted toy industry awards: The 2006 iParenting Media
Excellent Products Award and the 2006 Dr. Toy Smart Play/Smart
Product of Excellence.
Invented by Rochester software guru Tim Leverett for his 10-month
old son, this parent-inspired product encourages babies to touch
and tap the keys by offering instant feedback on-screen as a reward.
Because his son was so intrigued with the computer, Leverett tried
to find products that would satisfy that curiosity. Disappointed
at not finding anything suitable, fun or age- appropriate, Leverett
decided to create something on his own.
“I looked around and there were really only a handful of
other titles geared toward the baby market, and to be honest,
I really didn’t think they were well done at all. They seemed
to be designed by big companies who told their developers, ‘We
need a baby product,’” Leverett said.
After 2 years of extensive research and development he became
the proud papa of a wonderful new software series for babies’
ages 6 to 24 months. In the first title to market, “Shapes,”
whenever a child touches the keyboard, they are rewarded by fun,
on-screen sounds and adorable dancing, flying and spinning shapes.
In addition to the 14 activities, each Giggles Computer Funtime
For Baby title includes more than 50 songs in 5 musical categories,
and Shapes includes a 2nd bonus CD with a limited edition screensaver
version of the software.
More than simply eliciting delighted laughter from babies, Giggles
Computer Funtime For Baby is highly educational. Research has
shown that the more you stimulate and interact with young children,
the more they learn and develop. The overall quality of their
learning and development increases dramatically.
Giggles Computer Funtime For Baby is easy to use, super-fun and
babies just love this product. The debut title, “Shapes,”
is available for both PC and Mac and retails for $24.95. There
are plans for a total of 10 different titles in the series that
include “My Animal Friends,” “Funny Faces,”
and “Around My House.” New titles will be released
over the next 3 years.
We look forward to seeing more of Leveractive’s innovative
and creative baby products in the coming years. Based on what
they’ve created so far, there’s lots more award-winning
fun and learning ahead. And that’s a good thing for our
