Bottom Line: Designed for kids ages 3-8, Shape it! is great for shape and color recognition, but also for inspiring imagination. With three modes of game play, this app is great for use with multiple children or only one, and it does indeed have something to offer kids at both ends of the age range.
Bottom Line: From the developers at Agatsuma Entertainment Company comes this drawing app, Let’s Draw Simple! Geared toward young children, this app is based on the drawing books of artist sensei Kazesaburou Akiyama. Children are led through the basic steps of drawing more complex pictures using three simple shapes: circle, square and triangle.
If you have been following us or our sister site, Smart Apps for Kids, then you know our love for all the Dr. Panda apps. We get all giggly and happy whenever a new app is released. Heather H. recently reviewed the latest release of Dr. Panda and Toto's Treehouse and gave it a resounding 4.5 stars. I may have cheered and woken up my dog when I saw that this top app is now available for Android users! If you have a young child (and I would still count my 8 year old in this category, as she LOVES these apps still), then you have to check this app out!
Bottom Line: This app is a unique take on early number learning which definitely adds something to the app store in a saturated early childhood market. Trace the number with a variety of objects (boat, train, mouse) and they turn into adorable monsters. It’s perfectly engaging for toddlers and early preschoolers, and there is even a juggling octopus-like monster.
