Flying Rhinoceros and Wacom Make Education Fun for Gadget Savvy Kids This Holiday Season
Vancouver, Wa. and Portland, Ore. - Wacom Technology Corporation, the creator of Bamboo, and Flying Rhinoceros, the creator of Fraboom, announced a partnership that will enhance the Fraboom Online Children's Museum with a hands-on experience, using the Bamboo Pen and Touch tablet.
Instead of using a mouse to participate in Fraboom's live online classes, cartoons, and games, Bamboo puts an interactive pen into your child’s hand; simulating real pen-on-paper drawing. The Bamboo pen and touch experience gives children the opportunity to use the skills they learn in Fraboom to enhance their art skills and other everyday activities. Demonstrations and information of Fraboom and the Bamboo tablet are available at http://wacom.com/fraboom.
Fraboom, the world’s first live, interactive online children’s museum, combines the power of an educational television network, a problem solving online game universe, a rich media e-book library and a truly unique way to inspire kids by connecting them with engaging LIVE teachers. Children may attend real-time classes, play games, watch cartoons, and participate in activities meant to entertain while stimulating the mind. Everything in the Fraboom Online Museum is designed to educate. Children may not realize they are learning but if they are playing in Fraboom, they are experiencing fun educational content.
“Having the Bamboo pen was great because it was actually like writing. It was like using a real pen or marker or crayon. It was fun to watch my kids begin to move their hands using the motions to put simple shapes together and create an intricate picture. The live online teacher taught them how to draw step by step. Fraboom plus Bamboo is a new kind of kids educational entertainment system” said Andrew Orlando, a Portland-area father of four.
Fraboom’s content blends education and entertainment and gives parents the confidence that their kids’ time online is fun and informative. Fraboom’s live educators are trained to encourage learning and the live classes provide children with an interactive environment that inspires out of the box, creative thinking.
“At Flying Rhinoceros, we believe in innovation. Fraboom’s cutting edge approach, connecting kids with live, inspirational teachers, is what makes our app truly unique and will change the face of children’s media,” said Flying Rhinoceros president Ranjy Thomas. “We are thrilled Fraboom is a featured web app in the Google Chrome Web Store and we are excited to offer parents the combination of Bamboo and Fraboom to enhance their child’s Fraboom experience."
Upcoming Fraboom exhibits include How to Draw Cartoons, Dinosaurs, Oceans, Bugs, the Human Body, and U.S. Presidents.
