Best for: Interactive toys, Attention & concentration, Eye-hand coordination, Interaction, Personal & social

What it is: an interactive toy using pictures and names of the child's relatives as 'play objects'.

What you do with it: create the 'bios' for family members, caregivers etc by uploading a picture and recording their name to use during the play.

'Bouncing faces' game - pop the bubbles (some of them will contain pictures of family members). Touch the bubbles to hear the name of the person in the picture.

'Where am I' game - listen to the instructions (e.g. 'Where is...' or 'Help me find...') then tap the correct picture.

What we liked: excellent concept. Easy to configure and to use Number of options and features (e.g. multiple pictures for each person, progress tracking etc). Great for eye-hand coordination, fine motor skills and categorization skills. May be used for very young kids.

What we didn't like: some of the objects on the screen move too fast for the youngest kids. Some of the items maybe too abstract (e.g. the satellite) - we believe a choice of more familiar objects would be better.

Note about in app purchases: the free version allows 2 'bios' (different family members). To use more 'bios' you need to upgrade to the unlimited version ($3.99).
