BridgingApps just published the following BridgingApps Reviewed App on the site:

Jacquie Lawson Advent Calendar is a beautifully made interactive digital advent calendar with daily surprises. Each day click or tap on a numbered ornament to find an animation or creative activity. It also has book, games, puzzles, and holiday recipes that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. The theme for this year’s calendar is a Christmas scene set at an English country estate in the year 1910 and counts down days until Christmas starting on December 1, 2023. The advent calendar has an in-app purchase of $7.99 with discounts for purchasing multiple copies. It can be used on iPhones, iPads, Android tablets, and there is a web-based version for computers.

All of the illustrations and animations are created by artists, so the scenery and characters are high quality. It can be enjoyed by kids and adults of all ages. For therapists, teachers and parents it can be used to encourage expressive language, like naming objects, colors, and numbers. For those who are nonverbal of any age, it can be used to encourage following one step directions like “tap on the number 4” to demonstrate comprehension. The activities such as a scavenger hunt for users to find the animal that is revealed each day is engaging and fun!

One of the best parts of the app experience are the engaging ways a user can interact with the Christmas scene. By touching or clicking on an item, many small surprises are revealed, which is fun for cause and effect. In the “Drawing Room” scene, for example, users can tap on the logs in the fireplace, and a roaring fire starts. Presents can be opened, books can be read, and the Christmas tree can be decorated in a thousand different ways. The developer is committed to accessibility and uses the Website Content Accessibility Guidelines for their products.
