Oddmall is more than just an ordinary craft show. It’s a celebration of uniqueness, creativity, imagination, and wonder where artists, crafters, and like-minded sorts gather to offer their unusual creations for public consumption. It’s a forum for creative expression, a classroom for esoteric wisdom, a soapbox for wild ideas, a miraculous marketplace of the unconventional, a metaphorical Serengetian watering hole where the zebras and wildebeests of inspiration and artistry congregate amidst the snapping crocodiles and scorching sunbeams of originality and ingenuity… umm yeah. Anyway, it’ll be fun. To give you a better idea of what happens at event, please play video below!!


Oddmall has been going strong and gaining popularity with two shows a year in Hudson, Ohio since May 2009. Now heading into our second year in the Pacific NW! Our next event is the first ever 2 day Oddmall and will take place on May 31st & June 1st, 2014 at the Event Center at the Comcast Arena in Everett, Washington. It’s going to be awesome!

Division Math HD ~ Free for a limited Time ~ Educational Ipad App

screen480x480screen480x480 (1) screen480x480 (2)

DESCRIPTION FROM DEVELOPER

*FREE for a limited time! Check out our other Math/Maths ‘Match’ apps too!*

We’ve combined MATCHING, MEMORY and MATHS to help your child or students BOOST their SKILLS and KNOWLEDGE of this key area of NUMERACY. With 12 fun, testing levels (÷2 to ÷10, Mystery Numbers, Mixed Up and Decimal Division) this is a division LEARNING/TEACHING app that can TEST, ENTERTAIN and TEACH the whole family. It’s a great way to boost recall, quick thinking and mental calculation skills too.

*NO IN-APP PURCHASES! Everything’s included in one great-value price! It’s CHILD-PROOFED too! No Web/Social Media Links = SAFER LEARNING*

PLAY the level that’s RIGHT for you

CHOOSE from the ÷2 to ÷10, Mystery Numbers, Mixed Up (this is a mix of the ÷2 to ÷10 levels) and Decimal Division levels depending upon your child’s/students’ learning LEVEL. You can start with the easiest then move to the harder ones. There’s a level to suit the everyone learning division. Tap a card to reveal a question or answer. If they match, they’ll become the same colour and our cute little aliens will let you know too. Your goal is to match all the cards in as few moves as possible to get yourself a higher rank.

CHECK & REVIEW after you play

Unlike most matching apps, we keep the matched questions and answers on-screen for extra practice. Matched pairs don’t disappear but become the same colour, giving your learners an extra chance to learn and remember the right answers. Great for teaching in class with all the pairs matched/colour-coded for you.

screen480x480 (3) screen480x480 (4)

PRACTISE while you PLAY-Help is just tap away!
SUPPORT is available at ANYTIME. We want learners to test themselves and boost their confidence, and not to struggle and be discouraged. Simply tap the HELP button to see the questions and answers in your game. There’s no need for learners to get stuck or frustrated, as it allows the learners to solve their own problems and keep playing.

LEARN at your own pace-INCREASE confidence

Learners can take their time while playing these addictive, challenging games. It’s not about time, it’s about the number of cards you flip to match all the pairs. There’s a 5 minute time limit, but that’s more than enough time to get to the end.

The fewer the moves, the HIGHER the RANK

Each time you flip a question or answer card, it counts as one move. How many moves will it take you to match all the pairs? Will your rank be NEWBIE, NOVICE, BRIGHT SPARK, STAR or SUPERSTAR? Which division level can you become a GENIUS on? Each rank has its own CUTE alien mascot.

So, let our Division Match HD iPad app give your child/students a fun, head-start on their road to Math/Maths success. Play with your child/students or play against them, however you play you’ll combine learning with fun. When it comes to taking the first fun steps towards successful numeracy, we think it’s a hard app to beat.

Ask Ed ~ Free Educational Ipad App ~ For Children with Worries, Anxieties, and Tantrums

screen568x568screen568x568 (1) screen568x568 (2)

Description from the Developer

Does your child have worries, anxieties, tantrums?

Imagine if an app could teach your child to voice their problems, express their feelings and decide on a plan of action.

Ask Ed is designed to help children deal with real life problems from the smallest annoyance to a ‘full blown catastrophe’.

Ask Ed helps children, parents and teachers work together to tackle social, emotional and behavioural issues.

Ed, the Catastrophe Scale cat guides children through the Ask Ed process; asking questions, providing advice and giving encouragement.

Ask Ed uses the Catastrophe Scale to help children put their problems into perspective. Problems may be rated from 0 (no problem) to 10 (worst ever). This helps children understand that some problems may not be as bad as first perceived and can be easily overcome (ratings 0 – 4), while more challenging problems (ratings 5 – 10) need different strategies and help from other people.

Ask Ed is a great way for children to express their problems and share their feelings, empowering them to solve their own problems and feel good about themselves.

screen568x568 (3) screen568x568 (4)

Features of Ask Ed

• Deals with ‘real life’ problems – from the smallest annoyance to a ‘full blown’ catastrophe!
• Helps children manage feelings of frustration, sadness and anger.
• Provides messages of support and encouragement.
• Produces an Ask Ed report detailing the child’s responses.
• Report can be emailed and printed for future reference.
• Includes a database of real life problems experienced by children.
• Allows children to add their own problems and ideas.
• Help children develop real life problem solving skills and build resilience.
• Can be used at home, school or out and about.
• Works with individual children or groups of children.
• Suitable for children from pre-school to secondary school.

If you’re looking for a way to help children, Ask Ed!
