The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

All you need to do to splatter paint on the canvas is touch the screen. The two difficulty levels make this a nice crossover app for both toddlers and kids just learning to read.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Artsee Activities is a wonderful visual guessing game for kids which also gives them the visceral thrill of splattering paint on a canvas. As they tap the blank screen, they'll splash different colored blotches of paint around. Those splashes will reveal the outline of a hidden animal or object, which the children then need to identify. Pre-readers can use "easier" mode to choose from pictorial answers, while "harder" mode uses spelled-out words.

Is it any good?

ARTSEE ACTIVITIES allows players to splatter paint all over the place -- what kid doesn't love that? And if the process wasn't fun enough, then there's the visual guessing game that is revealed through all that paint-splashing. The two difficulty levels -- one with verbal answers, one with pictorial answers -- make this a good selection for kids anywhere from age 3 all the way to 6 or even 7. In a way, Artsee Activities is cross between flashcards and a puzzle game. But however you want to define it, it's a great activity for young kids.
