A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can work on their spatial reasoning skills as they match images to their shapes. Can also reinforce the connections between different animals/objects and the sounds they make.
Ease of Play
There are no directions, but all the very youngest players will quickly understand what to do.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Shows Fiete and his friends getting dressed (or undressed). Fiete has no shirt and is pulling on his pants. His friend is putting on a shirt, but is otherwise in his underwear. Nothing sexual about the scene, but some families might be surprised to see half-dressed men in an app for preschoolers.

Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
The beautiful illustrations seem almost wasted on puzzles that aren't remotely puzzling, even for a preschooler. Fiete Puzzle - Kids Games with Animals has beautiful artwork that's often lacking in apps for kids, and it has some entertaining characters and scenery. But it just doesn't do enough with those assets. Yes, it's wonderful to have a simple puzzle app that really little kids can enjoy, but there just isn't enough to do: There's no story, there are few interactive elements, and the difficulty level doesn't increase. And the puzzles don't get any more challenging than matching two to three shapes at a time. Most completed puzzles aren't entirely visible. Though the minimally interactive elements are a small perk, doing real puzzles provide more tactile stimulation and challenge.
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.
