Educational and WAAAAY fun!

This is a wonderful app. It is interactive and requires my son to match shapes . He loves this app and I feel that it is very educational and fun. It is really solid and we love all the gazili apps. I wish they made more! This is great for older 2 y.o. too!

Is It Any Good?

The characters in GAZZILISHAPES are cute, especially the weird purple dude who hammers on the spaceship and balances on a ball in the circus. All the activities are ones kids like -- who doesn't like to make cookies? Younger kids may get frustrated that they have to follow directions more than they get to just explore and move around where they want, but that makes it a bit more educational; most kids could use a little practice following directions.

Most younger kids won't notice or understand the key at the bottom that tells them how many of each shape they need to find or the congratulations box at the end of each activity that explains how many of each shape they found. Something more reinforcing would have been better like, "You found two ovals" while showing them the oval eggs they cracked right next to an oval shape. Parents will have to throw in those reminders here and there, which may just be a good thing: When the game is done, you can keep pointing out shapes all over the house and out in the world. Happy hunting.

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.
