Overall Score: 82/100

version reviewed: 1.0.1


Best for: Education, Attention & concentration, Early math, Eye-hand coordination

What it is/what you do with it: 3 interactive mini-stories (1 in the free version) teaching kids about basic shapes and colors.

Complete each 'story' by matching relevant shapes and colors.

Each story introduces more advanced material (Ancient Jungle: 4 shapes + 8 colors, Magical Underwater : 7 shapes and 11 colors, Mysterious Space Puzzle: 11 shapes and 11 colors).

What we liked: the concept. Fun visuals. 3 difficulty levels. Easy to use/suitable even for younger kids. 3 language versions (US English, UK English, Spanish). No ads or other distracting features.

What we didn't like: we wish there was more variety in the activities (they may get repetitive after some time). No voice instructions (the narrator only reads out names of shapes and colors)
