Mommy Niri + ItzaBitza = Best BlogHer Yet!PARENTING | Nirasha Jaganath | May 11, 2009 at 8:03 pm
It is with much excitement that I would like to announce that Sabi Games will be sponsoring Mommy Niri to the BlogHer 2009 conference in Chicago. I have been skeptical about accepting any sponsorships or advertising as it was extremely important that the affiliation I held with any company be one I could hold with pride. During a product review process a few months ago I “met” Margaret , the CEO of Sabi Games, and realized her passion for education and entertainment for children was something we both shared.
Sabi, the makers of ItzaBitza, was created through the collaboration of the Microsoft IP Ventures Program and Sabi co-founder and CEO Margaret Johnson. With the support of Microsoft chief research and strategy officer, Craig Mundie, Sabi became the sixth Microsoft IP Ventures startup company to date.
What is ItzaBitza you ask? ItzaBitza is a magical drawing game for early readers. While many games out there claim to be for children few possess the integrity and intention of ItzaBitza. Through interactive questions children draw objects and these objects come to life. The delight expressed by my preschooler was enough to convince me that Sabi were really onto something special.
Stay tuned for more exciting news coming from this wonderful collaboration.
