A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn about two-dimensional shape attributes and spatial reasoning. They have to drag and rotate shapes so they fit (without overlapping) into puzzles made of various configurations of the shapes. In doing so, kids learn about symmetry and shape attributes such as angles and edges. Kids practice problem solving as they figure out how to manipulate the puzzle pieces, and the option to create their own puzzles empowers kids and boosts creativity. As a digital version of a classic activity, Shape Arts: Geometry Creations lets kids practice their puzzling skills and share their creativity with others.
Ease of Play
Dragging and rotating shapes is easy and perfect for small fingers. Slow to load pages when moving from one screen to another.
Products & Purchases
There is a small icon on the main screen that advertises the developer's other apps.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Shape Arts: Geometry Creations is a set of interactive puzzles made of different shapes, much like Tangrams. Kids have to drag and rotate shapes into place to complete the puzzles. Or, they can create and save their own puzzles to share with other players. As they play, kids can earn reward marbles, and visual hints are available.
Is It Any Good?
The game is an interactive and engaging way for kids to build geometry skills and spatial reasoning, using a digital version of a toy they might already love. Hints support learning without giving away the answer, encouraging kids to solve the puzzles on their own. Kids can easily view the levels they've completed, as well as the reward marbles they've collected. It's empowering for kids to freely explore and complete any puzzles they wish in any order, but the option to complete and unlock levels would provide a more structured learning experience. It also would be great to see some definitions of the different shapes and geometry concepts that kids use.
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.
