Apps for Kids is sponsored by Little Blueprint: Personalized and ready-made children's books based on brain science, empowering kids to thrive through life's challenges and celebrations.
Apps for Kids is Boing Boing's podcast about cool smartphone apps for kids and parents. My co-host is my 10-year-old daughter, Jane.In this episode, we set down our smartphones to talk about the Plants vs. Zombies graphic novel, in which two kids team up with Crazy Dave, the deranged zombie prepper, to rid Neighborville of the invading horde of undead humans. Jane also grabs my staple remover that I was repairing with Sugru and messes it up.
And, we present a new "Would you rather?" question:
If you're an app developer and would like to have Jane and me try one of your apps for possible review, email a redeem code to email@example.com.
Jane and I love to get your emails with questions about game, gear, and tech. What's your question?
