Shape Builder – Amusing App for Your Kid

Shape Builder is an amusing puzzle game that make your youngsters can have fun with. Shape Builder is the iPhone and iPod Touch app designed by parents to keep both you and your toddler happy. This game gives challenge to put shapes of various animals, objects or figures into place.

A great little jigsaw app for children aged 3 to 5 years with around 146 puzzles for their enjoyment. Older children will probably not find it challenging enough, younger children won’t grasp the context.

The puzzles depict figures and objects that are familiar to the toddler, while the alphabet is spelled out by a professional speech therapist. The puzzles each feature their own accompaniment of merry made-up music. Each puzzle is made up of 5 to 10 puzzle pieces, giving your toddler the right amount of a challenge.

The game mode is so simple that there are no options; there is no need. The title screen automatically takes you to your first puzzle and when you finish one, it takes you to the next. The puzzles pieces are to the left, with a black and white outline of a picture on the right. Children slide the pieces in (which they can even do with some guess work) and when they complete the picture it automatically takes them to the next picture. Your toddler will play with the alphabet, 20 numbers, listen to over 30 musical instruments, recognize 37 animals, 17 fruits and vegetables plus a whole bunch of other fun items.

Shape Builder encourages cognitive thinking and fine motor skills for your toddler, and the game succeeds admirably at it. The great mix of puzzle, music and fun artwork seemed to give the developer Darren Murtha the perfect solution for an educational app that quickly got picked as Apple Staff Favorite. Shape Builder is available for $0.99 in the AppStore, giving you more than your money’s worth.
