Welcome to Pop Iris Books!

Hello there! Welcome to Pop Iris Books! We are an online application specializing in educational materials for children. We hope to be your partner in raising well-educated, fun-loving, and well-rounded children.

Our application is deeply embedded in research. We have studied the benefits and effects of screen time on babies and children. We live in the digital age. There is no disputing that gadgets are part of our everyday life including our children’s. That is why we wanted to use technology to come up with an application that would help parents maximize their children’s screen time. Pop Iris has worked with child media experts, web developers, and app builders to come up with this application that is designed especially for kids. After much deliberation, we decided to focus on redesigning story books so that they can be fun and interactive for children of different ages.

Pop Iris are storybooks for children with a fun twist. We have a whole selection of well-loved classic books, Books of Grimm and Sherlock Holmes, and books for toddlers and pre-school children. We have turned them into digital pop-up books to ensure fun and excitement for the children while they are exploring the apps and reading the books. These books also inspired us to develop games for children. Pop Iris apps have been downloaded over two million times. Pop Iris has since then received numerous awards and recognition such as the Best Kids App for 2010, Editor’s Choice for Excellence in Design, and App of the Year from both Apple and Android as a testament to the hard work of the whole team to produce high-quality apps for children.

Parents, let us correct the misconception that gadget time is bad for our kids.

Parents, let us correct the misconception that gadget time is bad for our kids. Studies have shown that it is not bad to hand over the tablet or iPad to our kiddos as long as we are there to guide them in what they watch, play, or download. As a mom, I must admit that I used to be very restrictive when it came to screen time for my firstborn. Following the recommendations of experts, I did not allow him to watch shows on the television, tablet, or smartphone in the first year of his life.

That was why we had a generic theme for his first birthday celebration because he did not know any cartoon characters yet back then. I was resolved to expose him to books (we had a dedicated time for reading) and other educational toys. And I was confident and satisfied with their benefits so I was decided to continue the no screen time policy going forward. But what I did not know was that my husband and my sisters would let my son watch videos on their tablets or smartphones whenever I was not around. That was why I was wondering how he came to know about Chu Chu TV, Ryan’s Toy Review, and a lot of other kiddie videos. My son is kind of advanced for his age so even at just 12 months, he would tell me about these videos and all the stuff he learned while watching them. He quickly learned about shapes, colors, and numbers from those sneaked in screen time. That was when I realized that I shouldn’t be too restrictive with the use of television, tablets, smartphones, and laptops. Of course, I still limit the time that he can watch these videos. I allow him to have supervised screen time because I can see that it helps a lot in his development. The operative word here is supervised. I make sure that I or his father is there while he watches videos or plays apps on his tablet.

I monitor the apps installed on his tablet and make sure that they are age-appropriate and educational for children. I researched recommended apps, such as Pop Iris, that would help enhance his knowledge and skills. I make sure that screen time is productive and it is still interactive as we, parents, still have to continue communicating and working with our children while they are using their gadgets. That is how we maximize the technology that is available to us.
