My kiddos love it

I found this app while searching for games that support mathematical concepts, specifically geometry, in little learners. When I saw it I knew I had to try it with my 4-year-old twins, and they instantly took to it. Math is so important and the younger they are when they begin to get engaged with learning math concepts the better. This app does just that.

This delightful puzzle journey uses something familiar and incorporates technology to add a new dimension. RelationShapes is the type of experience that's ideal for young kids. With clear goals and few bells and whistles, it won't overstimulate little ones. Ultimately, it encourages them to be creative, to problem-solve, and to have fun. Best of all, it creates a space for parents and friends to join in and make it a more social experience. The multiple profiles are a bonus so more than one kid (or adult) can enjoy, and kids end up with their own gallery of art that they can look back on. This gem is a must-have for your device library, and you certainly can't beat the price.

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.
