Remember the wooden puzzles we all had growing up, the ones that had our ABCs, farm animals, and food photos on them? The Kids Puzzles Puzzingo app takes our childhood memories and updates them for the digital generation.
If you have young children, chances are they are already addicted to the bright colors on your iPhone and iPad, and want nothing more than to play with it themselves. Kids Puzzles Puzzingo provides youngsters their very own app that is both fun to play and educational.
Based on the wooden puzzles we all grew up with, Kids Puzzles is a fun way for kids to learn all their shapes, colors, and numbers. The interface is very helpful for little ones to get started, and the clown host asks you to "shake" the wrapped present on the right side of the screen. This is accomplished by your child rubbing a finger back and forth over the present much like a lotto scratch ticket. The present will explode and release a puzzle piece. Just drag that piece to the matching black outline on the main screen to open the first level.
The opening screen is a picnic; once again, you are prompted to open another present and provided new pieces to the puzzle which include plates, food, and cutlery. Your child just matches each piece with the corresponding black shape. Once you complete the puzzle it launches into a fun mini-game where you swipe the food you've revealed into the clown's mouth.
It's All About Fun
Kids Puzzles Puzzingo is completely free, and it's astounding how far the developers have gone to get the most value for kids out of this app. There are almost 20 levels, each specific with pieces and mini-games geared to the puzzle's environment.
Children will definitely get the most out of this app as the fun factor completely masks the fact that they are learning. Not only are they learning what the app is teaching them, but also they are learning the finer points of how the iOS interface works. Now this may not seem like a big deal, but if you've ever had your child aggressively shake or hit your device you know how beneficial this can be.
