Madagascar Preschool Surf n' Slide app review: brush up on math skills

Reviews

Introduction

Math can be a fun and engaging topic to learn when it's delivered in a way that is entertaining and fun, which is exactly what this next app aims to do. The Madagascar Preschool Surf n' Slide app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and is meant for kids five years of age and under as they learn basic math skills. There are six different subjects and 18 lessons offered through the app, all of which feature their favorite characters from the DreamWorks Animation film Madagascar.

A Variety of Lessons

The Madagascar Preschool Surf n' Slide app manages to offer a nice variety of lessons, 18 in total, that span across six different subjects that are all basic ones for them to master. Kids will be working in the areas of critical thinking, animals, shapes, colors, letters, and numbers. Of course the theme that is used throughout is the Madagascar movie so Melman, Gloria, Marty, Alex, and the rest of the gang are there for encouragement and entertainment. Keeping its users in mind, the navigation and menus have been made very simple and there is endless play so that kids never have to stop. The app uses slider and tilt controls, again keeping it simple for kids.

In its last update at the beginning of the year there were improvements made to the graphics of the game so that the images appear smoother plus some bug fixes. The app currently has four out of five stars from users. Parents will appreciate that there is no data collection in this app, there are no links to social networks, no ads, and it doesn't use analytics.

Exploring the Game

The Madagascar Preschool Surf n’ Slide app is filled with fun elements for kids such as the fact that there are four different levels, each of which has its own theme. There is the Madagascar jungle, Africa, Antarctica, and the New York Zoo. Kids will be able to earn stickers that have a theme and then can be placed in one of four scenes in the virtual sticker book. They will be able to play as their favorite character and take part in riding and sliding on cute little turtles, magic carpets, snowboards, and surfboards.

The games are very age-appropriate and seem to offer just that right level of challenge and because there are fun images and graphics throughout, kids will enjoy the learning experience.
