Pretty good at the right age

The full app is divided into a bunch of different theme sections and each theme is divided into several subthemes. Within each, a child goes to a picture and fills it in with a series of detail pictures of objects, dragged in from the side. Each time, the app states clearly the name of the object. After the picture is complete, the child is rewarded with a transition to a new game to play for a while. Over the course of the app, the child ends up hearing and to some degree learning hundreds of words. I encourage my kid to say the names after the app does. At 2 years 8 months the app is perfect.

Cute game

This is a cute game for kids up to 4 or 5 years old. They get to figure out the forms and shapes of objects while having fun. Recommend!

Is It Any Good?

PUZZINGO is a well-designed app that tots and preschoolers will take to right away. There are animals to drag into farm, jungle, and ocean scenes; numbers to place as candles on a birthday cake; letters that a clown holds as balloons; and toys to place on a big shelf. Kids shake a present open to unlock a couple objects at a time that they can place in the scene. When the objects are all placed, oodles of balloons ascend that kids can pop; on some pages there are buzzing bugs to squash too. Kids will be having too much fun to notice that they're learning their animals, numbers, and letters -- each time an object is placed it's also named in a child's voice. A simple menu lets you turn off the music, reset the game so kids can only do one scene at a time, and choose a difficulty level -- though "little kid" and "big kid" levels seem pretty much the same.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
