We’re excited to announce that our newest version of Bramble includes 2 exciting updates: a reflection tool for parents, as well as major upgrades for our animals and their habitats!
We built this tool to help parents reflect meaningfully on your conversations throughout your Bramble journey. Research shows that reflecting on your practice is a crucial part of processing experiences and learning new skills, so we’re encouraging parents to slow down and take stock of their experiences and goals.
Our new parent reflection tool includes...
Seeds and Weeds refer to positive and negative communication patterns. Seeds are positive behaviours that encourage mutual understanding and empathy. Weeds are undesirable behaviours that can lead to assumptions, misunderstandings, and emotional disconnection.
We created these lists by combining research and literature with the real-life experiences of families who have tested Bramble.
Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about the kids! While we’re building tools to support parents, we’re also committed to making Bramble enjoyable and engaging for kids to use.
That’s why we’ve built 7 new environments – the Desert, Savannah, Grass Plain, Swamp, Forest, Jungle, and Arctic – for you to reforest with your child. Each environment has its own beautiful landscape for you to explore, and comes with its own unique animals. There are now a whopping 21 different species for you to collect!
Spend some time interacting with and caring for your animals. Give them water to keep them happy and hydrated - and watch them go from “extremely dehydrated” to “fully quenched” - or give them names to identify who’s who at a glance! Soon you’ll have a teeming ecosystem full of birds, bears, horses, and more.
What are you waiting for? Head to the App Store to update your app so that you can name your animals and explore new habitats. If you’re an Android user, leave us your contact information here so you’ll be the first to know when Bramble is available to download from the Google Play Store.
We hope that you and your families are staying safe and healthy during this time, and that Bramble can sprinkle some joy into your daily routines.
