Most children love to imagine what they want to be when they grow up. Sure, they might change their dream jobs at the drop of a hat but it’s important that we expose them to as many professions as possible. At the very least, they will know that they have many options in life.
If your children is at the age where they start talking about their dream jobs, here’s an app that might interest them: Match & Learn: The Professions.
In this educational game from Petita Demas, kids match three strips of animated drawings to discover 10 different characters. When a puzzle has been solved, the character’s profession is revealed. A wide variety of professions can be found, including doctor, ballet dancer, astronaut, cowboy, and Formula One driver.
In addition to the puzzles, the app includes a “Read to Me” section that contains short poems about each character/profession. It should be noted that when you have unlocked the badges in the matching game, the character will have an extra animation alongside their poem.
Overall, this is a simple, straightforward app with not a lot of fuss. It delivers on its promise really well, which is to expose kids to different professions in a fun, entertaining way. It’s very appealing visually, with a vibrant color palette and adorable characters. The background music and sound effects are top notch, and the narration is very clear.
The gameplay itself is intuitive, allowing kids ages 2+ to jump into the app with little supervision. And because there is no time limit, kids can relax and take their time.
A fun feature is the ability to personalize the game with the child’s name. Go to the parent’s section to enter the child’s name, and the puzzles will include it in a greeting. It’s a small touch, but it makes the app all the more appealing.
Finally, it’s worth noting that the app is safe for kids — it has no third-party advertising and no in-app purchases. External links are secured with a parental lock, which means you can peacefully leave the app in your child’s hand.
