Play Jigsaw Puzzles and Learn Animal Facts in Piiig Forest Explorer: Natural Science for Kids

I’ve always appreciated apps that allow younger kids to simulate things they would normally not be able to experience due to various reasons. For example, apps that explore outer space or the underwater world really help kids learn about many things without actually going to these places.

Piiig Forest Explorer: Natural Science for Kids is a relatively new app that allows kids to explore the forest as Chipper the Chipmunk. Along the way, they will meet and learn about different animals.

Explore the Forest with Chipper the Chipmunk

The app start with Chipper waking up inside his burrow. Once he has decided to go out, you can tap anywhere on screen to move him there. The idea is to navigate Chipper to explore the forest and meet new animals. This includes climbing up the trees and trying to loot the bluebird’s eggs from their nest, or going up to the top of the tallest tree in the forest to enjoy the scenery.

Patchmania KIDS Review: A Fun Path Drawing Game for Kids

Patchmania KIDS Review: A Fun Path Drawing Game for Kids

The App Store is home to many great games, many of which we’re sure would entertain kids as much as adults. Unfortunately, not every game is child-friendly: they’re loaded with in-app purchases and ads, or have steep learning curves that frustrate young audiences.

Fortunately, some app developers understand these concerns. One such developer is Little Details LLC, who last year launched a path drawing game called Patchmania. You could say the game is a success: it has a 4.5-star rating average and was named “Best New Game” by Apple. And now, the developer has released a child-friendly version called Patchmania KIDS.

Unlike the original Patchmania, Patchmania KIDS doesn’t have in-app purchases. You pay once to get full access to the entire game, which includes 625 original puzzles suitable for all ages. The new app also features additional story elements and whimsical sound effects that will delight kids and the young at heart.

Wild Kratts Baby Buddies Offers Animal Facts for Kids

 Wild Kratts Baby Buddies Offers Animal Facts for Kids

The Kratt Brothers are back! And they’re taking kids on a fun-filled, educational safari in their new app, Wild Kratts Baby Buddies. This time, kids will learn to take care of animals in the African savannah.

The app includes 5 baby animals in all: an elephant, a cheetah, a zebra, an aardvark, and a crocodile. Kids can choose the animal they want to play with from the main screen. As a nice touch, they will see the Kratt Brothers activate their Creature Power suits before they are transported to the animal’s home.

There are several tasks kids can complete as the animal’s caretaker, including feeding them, petting them, and giving them a bath. Kids can also have fun with the animal’s creature power — Maze the baby Zebra, for example, can play ball. The Wild Kratts team will also be there to provide some facts (“Baby crocs can swim from the moment they’re born!”) and tips about each animal.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar – Shapes & Colors

The Very Hungry Caterpillar – Shapes & Colors

There are plenty of apps in the App Store that try to teach kids about shapes and colors, but I think I found the most beautiful one in The Very Hungry Caterpillar — Shapes and Colors. Part of the StoryToys Jr. series of apps designed for preschoolers, the app features the famous character from Eric Carle’s book.

The Mini Games

The Very Hungry Caterpillar offers a wide variety of mini games that allow kids to learn about basic shapes, color shades, scale comparison, and pattern sequences. Kids start by matching 2-6 basic shapes, such as circles, triangles, and squares. Then, they sort shades of color. Next, they put colored balls into the matching paint buckets.
