Discipline: Communication

Magic Canvas

Discipline: Communication

The concept of this app is to foster communication between children and adults. The intention isn't to simply give them a toy to play with but to help nurture their various senses by exposing them to pictures with a real-life feel from a young age. At the same time, it is a tool that allows adults to kick-start their child's new discoveries and inquisitive minds. Magic Canvas was designed to be as user-friendly as possible by making it feel like you're reading a picture book, even though it's an app. It aims to help young children who cannot yet speak to communicate with adults.
