Best for: Crafts, Attention & concentration, Creativity, Eye-hand coordination, Music & art

What it is: an app for creating virtual collages using pictures of every-day objects.

What you do with it: create your picture from hundreds of available objects (categories like letters, buttons, music instruments, tools, toys etc). Additionally pictures from the devices' camera or from the photo library on the device can be used as backgrounds. The objects can be moved, resized, rotated or flipped. After you complete the picture, it can be saved or shared.

What we liked: the concept, ease of use, fun factor, intuitive menus, quality of editing tools, number and quality of pre-defined objects, video tutorials accessible from the app, many subtle details (like funny objects sounds), great looking results (even for less competent creators).

What we didn't like: no undo function. We would like to see some sort of zooming function (for adding and editing smaller details).

Bottom line: an original, fun to use and very well put together creative tool for all the young artists.

Best for: Crafts, Attention & concentration, Creativity, Eye-hand coordination, Music & art

What it is: an app for creating virtual scenes and collages on a virtual felt board.

What you do with it: create your picture from over a hundred of available objects (backgrounds, people, faces/body parts, clothing, accessories, animals, plants, letters, numbers). The objects can be moved, resized or 'glued' (to create more complex objects). After the picture is complete, it can be saved to the Photo Library on the device.

What we liked: the concept, ease of use, really nice, 'soft' looking graphics, good selection of ready-made items (e.g. you can recreate scenes from preschool rhymes like Itsy Bitsy Spider, Old MacDonald, 5 Little Monkeys, 5 Little Speckled Frogs), the fun factor.

What we didn't like: the editing options are limited (e.g. no flipping, no rotating), the 'glue' function (used to hold the layers in place) is a bit limited (works only for 'people') and didn't work well for us. No undo function. The more objects you put 'on stage' the more difficult it gets to grab and move them.

Bottom line: we were surprised how easy it was to create nice looking scenes and collages with this app!
