Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Beck and Bo is a beautiful and creative adventure designed specifically for toddlers and preschoolers. The drag-and-drop interface is easy to use, and the objects easily fall into place when guided. Toddlers will be delighted to discover what they can make happen as they move Beck and Bo, animals, and objects around in each scene.

What's it about?

Kids follow Beck and Bo, a little boy and girl, on their adventures to the beach, grocery store, park, backyard, and others -- 12 adventure scenes in all. Starting with a basic scene, kids drag and drop items to logical locations as they gently fall into the scene. Many items are animated, so kids will see the clouds move through the sky or cats peek out of a window. After completing the scene, kids get a little victory song and an animation and can view images and written words for each item and hear the words pronounced.

Is it any good?


BECK AND BO is a lovely choice for toddlers who will delight in controlling what Beck and Bo and other objects in each scene do, like making Beck slide down a slide at the park or putting them both to bed in their room. The scenes are beautifully drawn and the added items are interesting to move around -- just right for little ones. Kids will learn to think logically about how to place new items in the scene. For example, when a stoplight arrives in a city traffic scene, if kids move it to the top of a pole, they can then touch it to turn it green so the vehicles start to move.

Families can talk about...

  • Create a spirit of creativity and "wondering" by asking your kid questions such as, "I wonder what would happen if you put the dog in the dog house?" or "I wonder what would happen if you pushed Bo on the swing?"

  • Carry wondering questions into everyday life: "I wonder what would happen if I mixed these two paint colors together?"

Cute Simple Learning Game

My daughter love this cute little game which allows her to move and interact with elements in a variety of scenes; all the while learning what each is. The graphics are super cute with some very cute simple annimations. They were thoughtful of parents too, hiding the settings behind a protected area.
