MOCHU POP! WORLD’S FIRST MULTIPLE LANGUAGE IMMERSION GAME FOR BABIES AND TODDLERS

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.




With everyone in the house playing on something electronic, chances are high that even your youngest children are going to want to get in on the action. Though you'll limit and monitor their time on such devices, this kind of learning time with them can be fun and beneficial to their learning processes. I know my youngest was privy to electronic devices far before his older siblings ever were, and in his school, even the Kindergartners use the iPad and computers several times a week. Teaching your children to navigate and enjoy technology at home not only provides a great platform for increasing their knowledge, but these days, it also helps to give them a head start for when they do start school. Finding the best apps is important, and I have a most excellent one to share from Kadho. This app is free, so be sure to head on over and check it out!


Kadho’s New App Teaches the Building Blocks of Spanish, French, Italian and English

Among all of the wonderful apps available, only one teaches babies and toddlers the key sounds of English, Spanish, French and Italian that provide the building blocks for future language learning, backed by scientific brain research and immersive game play! Mochu the Penguin, in his first app, Mochu Pop - Language Immersion for Babies and Toddlers, guides babies and toddlers through animation via an iPad or smartphone in just a few minutes of adorable play.

 “Pop only the balloons with these shapes and colors,” begins the app. A lavender triangle balloon floats by. Or it might be a golden diamond. With a touch of a little finger, the balloon pops and a sound of “eh” or “tu” in the voice of a native French speaker is heard. Repeat the game with a language selectioon of English, Spanish or Italian. Game by game, tots develop their neurons for the basic sounds of linguistics. 


The app, created by an international team of renowned gamers, scientists and educators, teaches a child not just their own language but also the tools to learn any language throughout their lifetime. The app has been tested at Montessori schools and even Noam Chomsky says “it has the key ingredients for language acquisition.” It’s available for download at no cost – magnifique! More free apps and eBooks are coming this summer.


Mochu Pop features pleasing music in the background as the child plays the interactive game. The happy penguin, dressed in a striped scarf, taps his feet and smiles with his eyes as the game progresses. As differently shaped balloons float by, animated characters Moon and Sun pop up. App options include a volume control, a blue light filter to protect young eyes and a parental dashboard to monitor your little one’s performance.


Mochu Pop • Ages 1-3 years old • Free Pop the balloons to hear a sound. In this game, the child is presented with the shape first and then watches as balloons fly up on the screen. Little ones must touch the right balloons to match the shape. When a balloon is “popped” youngsters are rewarded with a sound. These sounds, based on decades of research, are foundational to language acquisition.  Available in the iTunes App store for iPad and iPhone, in Google Play for Android, and in the Amazon App store for Kindle. You can also follow along on their social media channels: Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and G+.

That is an amazing app! The best time to start teaching them is when they're young!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Wow, that's pretty neat.

Tiffany Collins said...

I had learned in school that a child's mind is at their peak when they are younger. This makes perfect sense to start teaching them another language when they are a baby or toddler as they are able to pick it up faster. Thanks for sharing I have a two year old and think I might need to check this out:)

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

I need this to learn my Spanish. One year I went to the islands and they wouldn't give me my order unless I said it in spanish.

Blue Grumpster said...

Excellent. Plus I'm sure I can use some help too... as far as Spanish is concerned.

Pat Hatt said...

That sounds like a great way for them to pick up another language young, easier to do at that age as they take everything in

alissa apel said...

That looks like fun. Anything to get them to know a language early on is great!

Christy Maurer said...

It's true that little ones love technology lol. When I taught preschool, one of my little 3 year olds knew how to recognize numbers way up into the 100's and knew all his colors. I asked him how he knew all of this, he said he played on the iPad! Mochu pop looks great.

Holy Ghost Writer said...

A great teaching tool

Carmen Perez said...

Cool app, at least they will be learning something from it.

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle said...

That's really cool! I absolutely love this app. It's been proven that kids can learn languages very easily when they're young.

Melissa Pezza said...

That is the coolest! I'm going to get this for my two youngest ones. They're the perfect age for it!

Aimee Fauci said...

i've never heard of this. I want to look into it. I could sit with my kids and learn.

Shell said...

What a fun way to teach kids! I bet they love it!

Mama to 5 said...

This sounds like a great way for kids to learn other languages. I would so use this in my homeschooling!

Six Time Mommy TEST said...

This sounds awesome. I would love to have this for my 4 year old! Or any of my kids for that matter! Sounds great! - jeanine

~ Noelle said...

This does sound pretty cool.
I love that they teach them computers and such now, but at the same time, I feel they spend too much time online as it is... (at times)
I miss the learning OFFLINE...lol, but that seems so "old" now. ha hah ahaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Paula Schuck said...

This sounds like a great app. Children absorb info like sponges and it's great to start this when they are so young.

Lady Lilith said...

How interesting. this looks like a great idea. Kids can learn so much when they are younger.

Val said...

I am loving this game! It is so bright and colorful. It is such a great app!

Christie C said...

My daughter is loving this app! I love that there are no in-ads!

It has all the right visuals to keep their attention. This is super cute and fun!

Carly said...

Mochu Pop looks like a super fun game for kids. I love that there's a parental dashboard so you can keep track of your child's progress.

Cheap Is The *New* Classy said...

Kids seem to love learning when there are games involved. This looks really cool.

Felicia Carter said...

What a fun idea. I love finding new ways to teach a foreign language.

Lois Alter Mark said...

It's so much easier to learn a foreign language when you're young. This sounds like a great tool.

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

Immersion is the best way for children to become fluent in languages. These skills will serve them well as they grow up.

debdenny said...

What a neat app. Great way to learn and have un.

Amanda Love said...

What a great way for kids to learn a second language. I used another program with Madison when she was younger and she actually knows a bit of French.

Jenny Temcio said...

I love how advanced technology is. It's great we can use apps to help our children learn!

Theresa Mahoney said...

I wish this would have been available when mine were little. Getting them started young really gives them a leg up on having the lessons stick later on!

rachel ferrucci said...

When you teach a young child a new language it's easier for them to absorb and even if they didn't become fluent it would be easier when they're in school to learn that language. You'll also learn by teaching them

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

What a great app! This would have been nice when my kiddos were little

Lisa Ladrido said...

I know from experience how much easier it is for a child to learn a second language than older children. I wish I had this app when I was growing up! Great to know that they have this for young children.

Kiwi said...

How adorable game this is! I love cute little apps like this!

Kristi said...

Our kids are too old but this looks like a really fun app. The best part is the language learning.

Coolmoms Cooltips said...

I can't wait to get this app! My kids are interested in languages

Dinner then Dessert said...

What a cool app, this is perfect for my kids! We are introducing language to them at an early age

NYC Tech Mommy said...

This seems like a really cool app for young kids! As a teacher I think I need to try this with my students :)

Amanda said...

This looks like a great app! As a homeschooling Momma I'm definitely getting it for my kiddos

Crystal said...

How cool is that! I am so impressed by what is available for children these days.

Kecia said...

My 4 year old has picked up a little Spanish from TV, but we haven't tried a language app like this. Must give it a go!

Beth@FrugalFroggie said...

Sounds like a great app that my kids would really enjoy.

Orihimekurosaki said...

I love learning about new educational apps geared towards children. learning a new language while young is very helpful.

Rachee said...

This is cute! Since babies can pick up more than one language easier than, say my old self, this would be a fun way to slide learning into playtime.

Ourfamilyworld said...

This looks like a great app to play and learn. I have to check it and play with it with my daughter

Cinny Bbs said...

That penguin is ridiculously adorable! What a fun app to learn new languages with.

Angela said...

Toddler's brains are like sponges. I imagine an app like this would be very beneficial.

Jenni E. said...

How cool is that?! My son would probably love this. He's always changing the language on his DVD settings, LOL! It just intrigues him.

A Day in Candiland said...

I am amazed a what children can learn. When I see them on ipads or iphones playing games and learning it seems unreal.

Lisa Rios said...

This is just amazing. Looks like a great stuff for babies & toddlers & moms are going to just love it too. The app looks simple & very much user friendly as well. Kids can learn so easily for sure.

Chrissys Critiques said...

This is super cute, I'm going to download this for my 4 year old!

This looks like a great idea! I love the multiple languages.

I've never heard of this before, but it looks great for those with smaller kids. Very educational and fun!

They need one for adults!

Megan Chamberlin said...

I love this idea!! We bought the Muzzy series for our kids to learn Spanish early on, but this free app looks awesome!
