Great Little Puzzle App

My 3 year old son loves to play this little puzzle game. It helps him with developing spacial abilities. He gets bored after several puzzles and moves on to another app (my reason for 4 instead of 5 starts). But he always comes back to it later.

Great for younger children!

My 2 yr old LOVES this game! She knows the shapes when they pop up and has learned names of things that we do not see/use in every day life (Kiwi, raspberries).

Is It Any Good?

SHAPE BUILDER - THE PRESCHOOL LEARNING PUZZLE GAME provides excellent puzzle fun for little fingers. Because each piece is a different color, it is easy to distinguish an individual piece from the others that are lumped together on the side of the puzzle. The pieces are big enough that little fingers won't have any trouble moving them by simply placing a finger on top of one piece and sliding it along. Plus, when a youngster moves the piece close to where it belongs, it clicks into place. When the puzzle is complete, the pieces meld together and the puzzle appears to come alive as the object appears. Language skills are reinforced with spoken and written words explaining what the object is, and for letters of the alphabet, the sound the letter makes is also spoken. If you want to try it before you spend $.99, then download the free Shape Builder Lite which has 15 puzzles.

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.
