♬♪♩pagmulat ng mata,
langit nakatawa

sa batibot,
sa batibot

tayo nang magpunta
tuklasin
sa batibot
ang tuwa, ang saya

doon sa batibot
tayo na, tayo na

mga bata sa batibot
maliksi,
masigla....♬♪♩

The Batibot app was first launched on Google Play in August 2015 by Smart Telecommunications and almost two years today, it can now be enjoyed not only by Android users but by all compatible iOS users as well.

As a 90's kid, Batibot is one of the popular children's show that's very close to my heart. It actually brings back memory of innocence and the memory of living a worry-free life as a child. The characters of Kuya Bodjie, Kiko Matsing and Pong Pagong are so memorable. They can bring you back in time in an instant, like time travel! Lol. This interactive app also reminds me of how awesome the childhood of my generation was during the time when internet connection was just a projection of the near future and the dot-com bubble was just starting to gain momentum. Thanks to the Batibot app, that awesome childhood experience with Batibot can now be passed on to the younger generations but in a different set-up. I am hoping that they will also enjoy this kind of show the way the children of my generation enjoyed it. It may seem a little off to compare it with the latest kids shows which are full of 3D renderings and animations but a classic like Batibot should still be imparted to the children of this generation may it be in the form of a television show or an app.

The App
The Batibot app was designed specifically for kids in kindergarten up to third grade. It features games that can help teach kids the basic learning concepts such as matching, sorting and grouping. It can also help them learn the alphabet and learn how to properly write the letters by tracing letters with the proper strokes within the app. It can also broaden their imagination and thinking and it teach them good values at an early age. The app features four categories: Kwentong Batibot, Awiting Batibot, Fun Games, Magsulat Tayo.

Kwentong Batibot
This is a compilation of local tales and legends such as Ang Alamat ng Ilong ("The Legend of the Nose"), Bakit Tumitilaok ang Manok ("Why Do Roosters Crow"), Si Muning ang Bunsong Laging Nagugutom ("Why does Muning, the youngest kitten, Always Hungry") which the main purpose of the stories is to promote good values to the kids.

Fun Games
As of the moment, the only available mini game on the app is the Matching Game. (Pares Pares). This will let the children learn  to memorize and match similar objects.

Bridging Digital Generations
This is an app for grand parents, parents, grand children and children alike. Those who grew up and came to know Batibot will find common ground in both the content and technology with the digital natives of today. I hope you and your kids find this app useful and entertaining. :)
