As a developer of educational Pre-School Apps-geared to small children from ages 2-6, with our complete focus being on this age group of little kids and all they encompass, we as a group feel the deepest sadness over this tremendous loss and devastation. We so understand all the wonder and yearning to learn in the minds of these children and we can feel the heartbreak of the chances never realized in these little ones so loved, whose lives were so cruelly cut short. Our hearts go out to all involved in this senseless tragedy…for a loss so great…we at GazziliWorld send our thoughts and prayers to all…

The thing about great preschool apps is that they raise lots of questions for parents and developers alike…such as, ‘What purpose should they really serve?’ If the app is chock full of educational material, than isn’t that what we’d want to incorporate into our kids’ daily learning? After all, a little more learning can never hurt, right? As developers we are certainly not looking to replace the traditional mainstays like reading books, but instead augment such practices with the new high technological interactive forms of today’s learning…i.e. the best of both worlds for our kids! And just as an aside, that new technology is here to stay in our kids’ world and can only be taught by hands-on practice… To our way of thinking that is the ideal.
But some could look at this differently. And they might feel that kids learn enough by traditional means and these apps are a bonus, an extra-added spurt of fun added to their day if and when they are deserving of this ‘educational fun time’. We have no problem with that approach either if that’s the way parents choose to justify their kids using these apps that deal with Words, Shapes, Puzzles and Science. In the end it really doesn’t matter what the reason is to indulge. What matters most is that kids using these apps are being enriched on so many levels! Please join in on the conversation and let us know what you’re thinking about this…
Will be back in touch soon,

Since everyone is affected by Hurricane Sandy in one way or another, it’s a good time to reflect with your kids on the important things in life…Being at home with no power is a chance to ensure a sense of togetherness, which is what Family is really all about-and that means any family and all families!. We at GazziliWorld take this very much to heart. There are many lessons to be learned and learning them together as a close unit can be very rewarding. We talk about Patience in GazzilliWords. Sandy was the perfect opportunity to teach your kids about patience through example. Waiting for heat and hot water is not easy, but if you can do it with a positive attitude, so will your kids…and they can do it with you with a shared sense of pride. Healthy, another important concept. Not so easy to adhere to when there’s no way to cook a meal. Just do your best, try and plan ahead and let them prepare it with you. Thus Togetherness!
Situations like Sandy are also a great opportunity to focus on concepts like Appreciation-for what you do have- and Charity-for those who are less fortunate than you. Even little kids can really grasp these concepts when you take the time needed with them to have a heart to heart and instill these life lessons. Storms and their aftermath might just shed light on important ideas that will be with your kids forever. Make the most of every moment…These troubling times can be very heartwarming and memorable. It’s up to you to handle them in a way that your little ones can focus on the positives..
…How did you get through Sandy with your kids? We’d love to hear your stories…
Talk again soon,

Hi all! We at GazziliWorld are committed to bringing you and your preschoolers the best possible apps…and to dealing with subjects that we think will be most important for your kids’ development in this fast moving high tech world. We’ve got words like Balance, Patience and Blood, and topics like our newly introduced GazziliScience. Guess the question here is what exactly we, as developers, are trying to accomplish for our audience….Well, since we base our apps on the premise that education of preschoolers consists of play-based learning, we are committed to finding the ‘just right’ balance of learning and fun.
We hope our little fans are learning through choices they make in each of our activities - for example in our ‘new baby’ GazziliScience, they get to pick an object that will sink or float. They will have to think about this and use visual skills and memory as well while tackling it another time. On the other hand, we hope they will experience a sense of joy as they help guide ‘Purple’ to his destination and ultimately free him from the ship. Thus, the education/entertainment dynamic! This interaction along with the newest technology should prove to be great fun for everyone. We’d love to get your thoughts on this. Our followers are a huge part of what we do. Let us know how you feel about our pursuit of the balance between learning and fun!
On another note we just want to mention how absolutely thrilled we are to hear thar our apps are having a great impact for Special Needs kids. We couldn’t be happier than to know that these interactive preschool apps are making a difference. We love your feedback-please keep it coming!!
Talk to all of you again soon…

At GazziliWorld, we take great pride in fusing fun and learning for preschoolers. Our passion
is creating the best, most engaging applications for your little ones. A big part of our process is
incorporating the input we receive from our educational consultants, experts who are on staff
at some of the country’s finest institutions, including Stanford University and The Dalton School
in New York City. We take the task of developing educational products for the great minds of
tomorrow very seriously.
Recently, we received some feedback regarding one of our GazziliWords from GazziliPack 8 –
“Family.” As with all of our GazziliWords, we had developed both a definition and an activity we
truly believe is not only an accurate depiction of families in 2012 but also a terrific tool for better
preparing our preschoolers for what families look like today. Our belief is that this is what best
prepares children for the real world.
That said, there are two aspects of this particular GazziliWord that have come into question:
• At what age is this material appropriate?
• Is it appropriate for GazziliWorld to introduce this material to our preschoolers, or should
this particular word, and its realities, be exclusively left for parents to introduce when
they see fit?
We would like you – our valued GazziliWorld parents – to help us decide if “Family” should
remain a GazziliWord or not. Please reach out to us via email at email@example.com and give
us your thoughts on the matter.
We would love to hear from you, and we plan to use your feedback to make our products better.
After all, these products are developed by us, but they are your applications.
