Wee You-Things app free for a limited time
In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, we're making the Wee You-Things iOS app (usually $2.99) FREE in the App Store today through Jan. 24. Designed to encourage kids (ages 3 to 7) to appreciate differences, and a USA Today Top Kids App 2013, Wee You-Things "delivers an important message about empathy and accepting others," according to Jinny Gudmundsen from USA Today.
In it, a quirky crew of characters celebrates "you-things" – those little and big things that, together, make you special and like no one else in the world. Ruth has a purple tooth. Little Dot gets scared a lot. Brad has two dads. Ling pretends that she's a king. After meeting 22 new friends, kids are asked, "What's your you-thing?" and get to become part of the story.
