Tiggly Gears Up for the Holiday Season With New Retail Partners

Tiggly Shapes Now Available at Apple Stores, Nordstrom.com, Amazon.com and Imaginarium

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 5, 2013) - Tiggly (www.tiggly.com), the makers of premium, educator-designed learning apps and iPad toys for toddlers, is now available at Apple Retail Stores around the world, Nordstrom.com, Amazon.com and Imaginarium. Tiggly's flagship product, Tiggly Shapes, is a set of four physical shapes that interact with iPad screens, and a series of learning apps to pair with them.

Starting today, Tiggly Shapes can be purchased at more than 200 Apple Stores across the United States ($29.99), as well as more than 20 outlets in Canada, and all European (£24.95, EUR 29.95) and Australian (A$39.95) Apple stores. Tiggly Shapes are the only iPad "app-cessory" in Apple Stores designed for children under the age of three. Product is already available at Nordstrom.com, Imaginarium, and Amazon.com.

"Tiggly Shapes offers toddlers and their parents a new and exciting way to use their iPad," said Phyl Georgiou, founder and CEO of Tiggly. "Having product available for purchase at top retailers makes it easy for families to find an educational gift that toddlers love. We expect Tiggly Shapes to be one of the hottest toys on the market this holiday season."

Each purchase of Tiggly Shapes comes with three free apps that can be downloaded from the Apple App Store: Tiggly Safari, Tiggly Stamp, and Tiggly Draw. By integrating physical play with a digital environment, Tiggly encourages the development of critical fine motor skills and spatial reasoning. The company plans to have two additional apps available in the App Store by December 15.

With the gender-neutral Tiggly Shapes, children aged 18 months to 4 years learn to manipulate physical objects, and visualize and orientate shapes. The apps also encourage toddlers to tell stories while exposing them to a new vocabulary and new languages (the apps are available in 7 languages).
