Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Injini: Child Development Game Suite is a set of 10 educational games, thoughtfully designed for preschoolers through early elementary age children. Each game has nine difficulty levels, which kids can progress through gradually or, with help from parents, skip ahead to find a fun challenge. The games introduce and reinforce concepts about letters, numbers, shapes, and colors, and these concepts are woven in with motor and logic skills like matching, sequencing, patterns, and tracking moving objects. The hefty price of this app makes it most appropriate for educators investing in multiple children at a range of ability levels.
Is it any good?
INJINI is an excellent app at a less-than-excellent price. The app has a tremendous amount to offer, particularly for educators working with multiple kids at multiple ability levels. The graphics are almost universally well-done and smooth, although most (but not all) of the people or body parts shown are white. This app has the potential to really teach kids, rather than just giving them a tool for learning. The hefty price seems comparable to what you might pay for all of these games in board form, and their thoughtful educational design makes them stand out from other games. Still, with other apps like Bugs and Buttons out there with similar philosophies but remarkably lower prices, it's hard to justify the cost.
