tigglypumpkinThis November, interactive learning company Tiggly will follow-up their award-winning Tiggly Shapes with the release of Tiggly Counts - "a revolutionary new way for kids to learn math." Inspired by the cuisenaire  rods  used  in  Montessori  education,  Tiggly  Counts  includes  a  set  of   five  colorful  counting  Toys  that  interact with  three  parent-and-educator­‐approved   Tiggly  iPad  learning  apps.  The  combination  of  physical  and  digital  play  helps  children   develop  their  number  sense,  counting  skills,  and  understanding  of  math  operations,   such  as  addition  and  subtraction. While the set won't be available until next month, Tiggly has teamed-up with THE ROCK FATHER to offer readers a chance to win a Tiggly Counts set of their own, and offer 30% off the normal price of $29.95 for those wishing to pre-order.
