Mindful Powers™
Description
Mindful Powers™ is an award-winning, kid-first, holistic approach to helping young minds learn and practice mindfulness so they can respond more effectively to stressful situations through the power of play. Built on a skills-based approach that helps children in early and middle childhood build a healthier relationship with life, stress, and anxiety, Mindful Powers™ empowers kids to bring calm to their lives at the touch of their fingertips. Download Mindful Powers™ today to experience the first three Mindful Play lessons for free! Ideal for kids aged 7 – 10 Mindful Powers™ is designed to be a part of your child’s daily routine. It is simple, easy, and fun to use, so kids can pick it up and use it at any point in their day. The two key features are: • Mindful Play | voice-guided mindfulness sessions • Focus Time | a task timer Mindful play: Through a series of 10 progressive and interactive voice-guided sessions, kids learn how to master the powers of mindfulness – the ability to know and understand what is happening in one’s head at any given moment, without getting carried away by it. Before each lesson, kids sooth their very own Flibbertigibbet™, who is in an agitated state, with the touch of their finger. This sensory-based repetitive interaction triggers the body’s rest and digest response, helping kids relax and regain focus. Focus time: The Flibbertigibbet™ self-set timer helps kids set mental parameters around a given task by applying focus time until completion. When the focus timer is on, Mindful Powers™ deters kids from using the device for any other purpose, encouraging them to work towards completing their tasks. Mindful Powers helps grow the following skills: • Calmness & relaxation • Stress & anxiety reduction • Concentration & focus • Navigating big emotions • Getting along with others “Mindful Powers™ is not a cookie cutter approach to mindfulness. Based on contextual behavioral science and inspired by an approach to therapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, it recognizes that the mindfulness experience is a psychological experience that can be learned in small bits and gradually presented and trained.” — Dr. Roger Vilardaga, Assistant Professor at Duke University Mindful Powers Awards: • GOLD Winner: The Davey Awards, Best Mobile Apps/Site - Health & Wellness • GOLD Winner: The W3 Awards, Best Mobile Apps/Site - Family & Kids • Best Learning App: Kidscreen Awards 2019 — Original • Finalist: 2018 Cynopsis Imagination Awards - Mobile App – K6-11 The content and lessons included in Mindful Powers™ were developed in consultation with Dr. Roger Vilardaga, a Clinical Psychologist and Assistant Professor at Duke University’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences *Mindful Powers™ is not intended to clinically treat kids with behavioral and/or emotional challenges.

This is The best App in the world whenever I’m stressed out it’s like my phone appears in my hand and I go straight to the app.my favorite story thing or thing to calm down my anxiety that I got to so far is the breathing exercise in the third one
Amazing! Thought the money thing was a bit of a promblem
by happy owl 101201 on 2020/06/10 20:26
I LOVED THE GAME, but I’m unable to pay. I was wondering if you could please make the main levels free, but then people who pay can dress their flibberdigets up, change their color and background, and more. Also, maybe you have to wait a specific amount of days before doing one level to another and you can pay to not wait. I would really like this to happen and thank you for reading.
Love dis game.to my mom:thanks,this is Claire brookes

BEST,GAME,EVER I have play date right now :<|
Well worth a few dollars!!!
by Ellastacia on 2020/05/27 10:53
I’m extremely disappointed to be reading the comments of all the people who complained that this app once cost money. Does anyone have no idea what it takes to build an app like this?? After my daughter got through all the unlocked levels I was HAPPY to pay for the rest of the locked ones and shocked to see that you now can unlock them for $0.00. It bothered me so much that I wasn’t paying for something this well made, I went to read in the reviews to see if there were any clues as to why this was. I’m not sure if it had anything to do with it, but all the entitled comments demanding that it should be free almost made me need to use this app to chill back out!! To all the developers and creators and people who worked tirelessly on this app, thank you for making it, and I wish there was some way I could have repaid you for doing so because it truly is a fantastic piece of work and you deserve to be compensated for it, no questions asked.
Really good

by islandgirl007 on 2020/01/12 17:50
My son and I were excited to get started but I continue to get an error message saying my sound is not turned on despite the fact that it is. I’ve tried deleting and re-downloading but to no avail. I’m disappointed.
Good

Good App 🙂
Exactly what my daughter needed
by Perleee on 2019/09/05 03:18
I absolutely love this app! My ten year old daughter was experiencing some breakthrough anxiety during the transition back to school, and this is the perfect tool to teach her calming techniques. The voice is very soothing and friendly, and the information is presented in a very clear, very easy to digest way. Super relaxing and effective. Thank you :)

by mum_ster on 2019/06/20 19:41
I am a psychotherapist. I talk to clients about mindfulness and awareness all the time. I really enjoy this app myself. So much fun. Indefinitely recommend to all my clients age 4 to 100!!!

The Mindful Plays
by mooreril23 on 2019/03/03 17:40
I love the concept of this but after 3 mindful plays you have to spend $4.99 to continue with the mindful plays. It sucks😕
Mindfulness works.
by twins41601 on 2019/02/14 11:42
Therapists who know me well know my thoughts on using screens in therapy with children. I don’t, as in NEVER, until today. I have been desperate to incorporate mindfulness with a child who’s experienced more trauma in life than many adults. Solely auditory mindfulness apps weren’t cutting it. Mindful Powers incorporates auditory, visual, and kinesthetic senses. It educates the kid on mindfulness and the brain in very kid-friendly terms and how it relates to emotional regulation. It asks you do manipulate the screen, and if you are going too fast, it will not move on until you slow down! The music and visuals are SLOW and calming. This kid was engrossed in this task for >20 min, and after weeks of regression and avoiding participation, I saw smiles, increased interaction, and increased frustration tolerance. Guess who got some extra OT homework?! 😍 Oh, and it also has a visual “focus timer!”
My son loves it!
by Constance👸 on 2018/11/30 01:58
His therapist recommended finding an app for kids to learn about mindfulness. She even offered some suggestions but I didn’t care for them. When I found this one I was skeptical that he may find it too “childish” but he loves it! He even loves using the focus timer for homework 😳
Really a rip off
by I Hunt Ghosts Ya on 2018/11/16 00:34
It’s a good app in all, but after the first three lessons you have to buy the whole thing. And the only thing you do with the pet you get that is supposed to resemble you is pet it. Really a let down and I was disappointed. Don’t waste your time unless you plans include spending money on a stupid app.
LOVE IT

by unimedoday on 2018/08/23 20:50
I love this game I have never been so mindful. It helps you stay focused on what you are doing,I was having a hard time at school but this fixed it. I am now a honor student in my school. But like almost every thing it does have a down side you have to pay to play the game. You play the first three for free but the rest of the game YOU have to pay. But this totally works!👍
Do Not Purchase - Broken!
by Disappointed and Discouraged on 2018/03/23 03:50
I have restarted this app several times and tried it on more than one device, yet none of the timer achievements unlock after the first one. This should be fixed, as it is crucial to advancing and enjoying many aspects of the game. Otherwise, the app seems great. I would love to rectify my review if the problem is ever fixed.
I like the app
by NuyoRicanGirl on 2018/01/07 06:57
I downloaded the app on my iPhone SE and it works great. I now downloaded it to my sons iPhone 4 iOS7 and the app is super slow. The character is transparent and you can't maneuver the application. Please fix this problem this phone was just factory reset so it doesn't have many apps so it should work without a problem.
Incredible App until a week ago
by Mommy of a Special girl on 2018/01/02 00:26
Downloaded the free version to start with for my daughter. It worked marvelously at helping her calm down when she was overwhelmed. So we went ahead and paid for the upgraded version. It too worked well until the latest update. Then the app wouldn’t play any sound at all. Checked the iPod to make sure it wasn’t a malfunction. Found it was the app. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Now we have sound but we lost all of her progress and the $2.99 we paid for the upgrade. AND it won’t let us tap the crystal at the beginning to start so she can’t even use the app. :( could have been the BEST calming app for kids on the market until the malfunction. :(
Highly recommend this app!
by Carlita Washington on 2017/12/20 18:13
My son’s caseworker suggested this app for my daughter with anxiety. She loves it! However we were surprised that you have to pay $4.99 for the next level. I wish that was mentioned in the app beforehand so we knew what we were downloading; but this app is super worth $4.99! The only issue I’m having is that it crashes everytime I try to pay it. I’ve submitted two payments of $4.99 and each time it tells me I have to pay to go to the next level. I’ve tried restarting my phone but I’m just scared that it took my money and won’t let me move on to the next level. I’ve tried googling customer service for this app so we can make our payment and move on to the next level but this seems to be the only way to share what’s going on. That is the only reason I gave it four stars because I’m not able to pay for the next level. Other than that, I highly recommend this app if you can make a payment lol It’s worth it!
Cute and Calming
by Kitty Ho on 2017/12/07 04:05
I initially was interested in the cute character and curious about the idea and practice of mindfulness. At first I was impatient and didn’t really understand the purpose of the lessons but overtime I enjoyed the calmness and the feeling of slowing down and focusing on the task.
Wonderful
by M Shawn on 2017/11/07 00:47
What a fantastic app, especially for kids but for anyone, really. A charming and engaging and practical technique to learn and practice mindfulness, focus, calming. It's uniquely therapeutic and fun. I don't know of anything else quite like it.
Very calming
by Kumibones on 2017/11/03 00:38
Sounds are calming, Flibbertigibit is an adorable virtual pet, and it forces you to slow down. The visuals have already helped me apply to other emotions in stressful situations.
Relaxing

Such a cute and unique app:) I love it
it good but kinda annoying
by cheyenne thai on 2017/10/26 23:16
it annoying because i just tried it im emotional and i seriously yelled at the ball because in every lesson u have to spin the ball two times and it take for forever after that tell u stuff about the lesson i cant
Great but.......
by authorgirl93 on 2017/10/23 15:11
It's great but u can't do much it gets a little annoying and I don't think it would work that great for kids. It's more of a stress app that takes ur stress away. Not the best for kids sry.
Engaging and fun interactive App.
by Summit-Up on 2017/10/22 15:27
I throughly enjoyed this App and have a grandchild I will be sharing this with. Flibbertigibbet is so cute and really helps you focus your way to relaxation and mindfulness. It offers engaging tactile interaction with the Flibbertigibbet character and go with him on various different adventures. I highly recommend this for your kids.
Nice Game
by Kellie Forever on 2017/10/21 20:45

Started out great..
by CelestialG Pokemon artist YT on 2017/10/21 14:38
When I first began, I couldn't stop! This was perfect for my spare time. Until it said I HAVE to buy to continue. And now that I can only rep,at the same lessons, I'm not getting mindful, I'm just getting frustrated! Every Time I reach the part where it tells me to pay, I feel even WORSE than I did before! This app will only work if you pay money... I'm not re downloading ever....
Highly recommend this app!

Mindful Powers™
Description
Mindful Powers™ is an award-winning, kid-first, holistic approach to helping young minds learn and practice mindfulness so they can respond more effectively to stressful situations through the power of play. Built on a skills-based approach that helps children in early and middle childhood build a healthier relationship with life, stress, and anxiety, Mindful Powers™ empowers kids to bring calm to their lives at the touch of their fingertips. Download Mindful Powers™ today to experience the first three Mindful Play lessons for free! Ideal for kids aged 7 – 10 Mindful Powers™ is designed to be a part of your child’s daily routine. It is simple, easy, and fun to use, so kids can pick it up and use it at any point in their day. The two key features are: • Mindful Play | voice-guided mindfulness sessions • Focus Time | a task timer Mindful play: Through a series of 10 progressive and interactive voice-guided sessions, kids learn how to master the powers of mindfulness – the ability to know and understand what is happening in one’s head at any given moment, without getting carried away by it. Before each lesson, kids sooth their very own Flibbertigibbet™, who is in an agitated state, with the touch of their finger. This sensory-based repetitive interaction triggers the body’s rest and digest response, helping kids relax and regain focus. Focus time: The Flibbertigibbet™ self-set timer helps kids set mental parameters around a given task by applying focus time until completion. When the focus timer is on, Mindful Powers™ deters kids from using the device for any other purpose, encouraging them to work towards completing their tasks. Mindful Powers helps grow the following skills: • Calmness & relaxation • Stress & anxiety reduction • Concentration & focus • Navigating big emotions • Getting along with others “Mindful Powers™ is not a cookie cutter approach to mindfulness. Based on contextual behavioral science and inspired by an approach to therapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, it recognizes that the mindfulness experience is a psychological experience that can be learned in small bits and gradually presented and trained.” — Dr. Roger Vilardaga, Assistant Professor at Duke University Mindful Powers Awards: • GOLD Winner: The Davey Awards, Best Mobile Apps/Site - Health & Wellness • GOLD Winner: The W3 Awards, Best Mobile Apps/Site - Family & Kids • Best Learning App: Kidscreen Awards 2019 — Original • Finalist: 2018 Cynopsis Imagination Awards - Mobile App – K6-11 The content and lessons included in Mindful Powers™ were developed in consultation with Dr. Roger Vilardaga, a Clinical Psychologist and Assistant Professor at Duke University’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences *Mindful Powers™ is not intended to clinically treat kids with behavioral and/or emotional challenges.

This is The best App in the world whenever I’m stressed out it’s like my phone appears in my hand and I go straight to the app.my favorite story thing or thing to calm down my anxiety that I got to so far is the breathing exercise in the third one
Amazing! Thought the money thing was a bit of a promblem
by happy owl 101201 on 2020/06/10 20:26
I LOVED THE GAME, but I’m unable to pay. I was wondering if you could please make the main levels free, but then people who pay can dress their flibberdigets up, change their color and background, and more. Also, maybe you have to wait a specific amount of days before doing one level to another and you can pay to not wait. I would really like this to happen and thank you for reading.
Love dis game.to my mom:thanks,this is Claire brookes

BEST,GAME,EVER I have play date right now :<|
Well worth a few dollars!!!
by Ellastacia on 2020/05/27 10:53
I’m extremely disappointed to be reading the comments of all the people who complained that this app once cost money. Does anyone have no idea what it takes to build an app like this?? After my daughter got through all the unlocked levels I was HAPPY to pay for the rest of the locked ones and shocked to see that you now can unlock them for $0.00. It bothered me so much that I wasn’t paying for something this well made, I went to read in the reviews to see if there were any clues as to why this was. I’m not sure if it had anything to do with it, but all the entitled comments demanding that it should be free almost made me need to use this app to chill back out!! To all the developers and creators and people who worked tirelessly on this app, thank you for making it, and I wish there was some way I could have repaid you for doing so because it truly is a fantastic piece of work and you deserve to be compensated for it, no questions asked.
Really good

My son and I were excited to get started but I continue to get an error message saying my sound is not turned on despite the fact that it is. I’ve tried deleting and re-downloading but to no avail. I’m disappointed.

Exactly what my daughter needed
by Perleee on 2019/09/05 03:18
I absolutely love this app! My ten year old daughter was experiencing some breakthrough anxiety during the transition back to school, and this is the perfect tool to teach her calming techniques. The voice is very soothing and friendly, and the information is presented in a very clear, very easy to digest way. Super relaxing and effective. Thank you :)
BEST.CALMING.APP.EVER.
by #hybrid on 2019/08/12 00:59
This app helps me a lot.im a little older then seven or eight but I still love using it.its fun to use and I would just like to say the flibertigibits(sorry if I spelled it wrong I’m bad at spelling) are ADORABLE.this also helps me relax when I’m stressed.so 100 % WORTH IT
Highly recommend!
by mum_ster on 2019/06/20 19:41
I am a psychotherapist. I talk to clients about mindfulness and awareness all the time. I really enjoy this app myself. So much fun. Indefinitely recommend to all my clients age 4 to 100!!!
Why?
by pokemon1666 on 2019/04/21 01:40
My child just wants to play and we have NO money!!! My child wants to continue the story’s but she can’t cus... we have no money. Could you make it free please!!! She has a temper and the story’s helped her out but she hates the same stuff.
This app is amazing!

The Mindful Plays
by mooreril23 on 2019/03/03 17:40
I love the concept of this but after 3 mindful plays you have to spend $4.99 to continue with the mindful plays. It sucks😕
Mindfulness works.
by twins41601 on 2019/02/14 11:42
Therapists who know me well know my thoughts on using screens in therapy with children. I don’t, as in NEVER, until today. I have been desperate to incorporate mindfulness with a child who’s experienced more trauma in life than many adults. Solely auditory mindfulness apps weren’t cutting it. Mindful Powers incorporates auditory, visual, and kinesthetic senses. It educates the kid on mindfulness and the brain in very kid-friendly terms and how it relates to emotional regulation. It asks you do manipulate the screen, and if you are going too fast, it will not move on until you slow down! The music and visuals are SLOW and calming. This kid was engrossed in this task for >20 min, and after weeks of regression and avoiding participation, I saw smiles, increased interaction, and increased frustration tolerance. Guess who got some extra OT homework?! 😍 Oh, and it also has a visual “focus timer!”
My son loves it!
by Constance👸 on 2018/11/30 01:58
His therapist recommended finding an app for kids to learn about mindfulness. She even offered some suggestions but I didn’t care for them. When I found this one I was skeptical that he may find it too “childish” but he loves it! He even loves using the focus timer for homework 😳
Really a rip off
by I Hunt Ghosts Ya on 2018/11/16 00:34
It’s a good app in all, but after the first three lessons you have to buy the whole thing. And the only thing you do with the pet you get that is supposed to resemble you is pet it. Really a let down and I was disappointed. Don’t waste your time unless you plans include spending money on a stupid app.
LOVE IT

by unimedoday on 2018/08/23 20:50
I love this game I have never been so mindful. It helps you stay focused on what you are doing,I was having a hard time at school but this fixed it. I am now a honor student in my school. But like almost every thing it does have a down side you have to pay to play the game. You play the first three for free but the rest of the game YOU have to pay. But this totally works!👍
Do Not Purchase - Broken!
by Disappointed and Discouraged on 2018/03/23 03:50
I have restarted this app several times and tried it on more than one device, yet none of the timer achievements unlock after the first one. This should be fixed, as it is crucial to advancing and enjoying many aspects of the game. Otherwise, the app seems great. I would love to rectify my review if the problem is ever fixed.
I like the app
by NuyoRicanGirl on 2018/01/07 06:57
I downloaded the app on my iPhone SE and it works great. I now downloaded it to my sons iPhone 4 iOS7 and the app is super slow. The character is transparent and you can't maneuver the application. Please fix this problem this phone was just factory reset so it doesn't have many apps so it should work without a problem.
Incredible App until a week ago
by Mommy of a Special girl on 2018/01/02 00:26
Downloaded the free version to start with for my daughter. It worked marvelously at helping her calm down when she was overwhelmed. So we went ahead and paid for the upgraded version. It too worked well until the latest update. Then the app wouldn’t play any sound at all. Checked the iPod to make sure it wasn’t a malfunction. Found it was the app. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Now we have sound but we lost all of her progress and the $2.99 we paid for the upgrade. AND it won’t let us tap the crystal at the beginning to start so she can’t even use the app. :( could have been the BEST calming app for kids on the market until the malfunction. :(
Highly recommend this app!
by Carlita Washington on 2017/12/20 18:13
My son’s caseworker suggested this app for my daughter with anxiety. She loves it! However we were surprised that you have to pay $4.99 for the next level. I wish that was mentioned in the app beforehand so we knew what we were downloading; but this app is super worth $4.99! The only issue I’m having is that it crashes everytime I try to pay it. I’ve submitted two payments of $4.99 and each time it tells me I have to pay to go to the next level. I’ve tried restarting my phone but I’m just scared that it took my money and won’t let me move on to the next level. I’ve tried googling customer service for this app so we can make our payment and move on to the next level but this seems to be the only way to share what’s going on. That is the only reason I gave it four stars because I’m not able to pay for the next level. Other than that, I highly recommend this app if you can make a payment lol It’s worth it!
Cute and Calming
by Kitty Ho on 2017/12/07 04:05
I initially was interested in the cute character and curious about the idea and practice of mindfulness. At first I was impatient and didn’t really understand the purpose of the lessons but overtime I enjoyed the calmness and the feeling of slowing down and focusing on the task.
Wonderful
by M Shawn on 2017/11/07 00:47
What a fantastic app, especially for kids but for anyone, really. A charming and engaging and practical technique to learn and practice mindfulness, focus, calming. It's uniquely therapeutic and fun. I don't know of anything else quite like it.
Very calming
by Kumibones on 2017/11/03 00:38
Sounds are calming, Flibbertigibit is an adorable virtual pet, and it forces you to slow down. The visuals have already helped me apply to other emotions in stressful situations.
Relaxing

it good but kinda annoying
by cheyenne thai on 2017/10/26 23:16
it annoying because i just tried it im emotional and i seriously yelled at the ball because in every lesson u have to spin the ball two times and it take for forever after that tell u stuff about the lesson i cant
Great but.......
by authorgirl93 on 2017/10/23 15:11
It's great but u can't do much it gets a little annoying and I don't think it would work that great for kids. It's more of a stress app that takes ur stress away. Not the best for kids sry.
Engaging and fun interactive App.
by Summit-Up on 2017/10/22 15:27
I throughly enjoyed this App and have a grandchild I will be sharing this with. Flibbertigibbet is so cute and really helps you focus your way to relaxation and mindfulness. It offers engaging tactile interaction with the Flibbertigibbet character and go with him on various different adventures. I highly recommend this for your kids.
Nice Game

by CelestialG Pokemon artist YT on 2017/10/21 14:38
When I first began, I couldn't stop! This was perfect for my spare time. Until it said I HAVE to buy to continue. And now that I can only rep,at the same lessons, I'm not getting mindful, I'm just getting frustrated! Every Time I reach the part where it tells me to pay, I feel even WORSE than I did before! This app will only work if you pay money... I'm not re downloading ever....
Highly recommend this app!
