Kendal Investments today introduces Smarty: Tic-Tac 1.0 for iOS, their new touch- interactive game for kids age two and older that introduces the concept of time and the skill of reading a clock in a lively, entertaining fashion. A cartoon cat sits with a white board on his lap that displays a time, for example, 8:32. Behind him is a large display of six different clocks, each one having a different design, and each one displaying a different time. Kids must touch the one clock that reads 8:32.
