The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can learn about problem-solving, logical thinking, and spatial reasoning. Moving shapes around with one or two hands requires fine motor skills. Younger kids will also practice recognizing and matching shapes and colors. To solve more difficult puzzles, kids must use strategy and planning.

Ease of Play

Tapping and dragging to navigate is a bit different than what kids might be used to. Sometimes kids need to coordinate with two hands to solve a puzzle.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Winky Think Logic Puzzles is a set of brain twisters that gets progressively harder as kids pass through the levels. To solve each puzzle, kids must get around various obstacles and place one or more shapes on its home base. Each of the 180 levels unlocks when kids have solved the level below. The early levels are quite easy, which makes them accessible to younger kids, but older kids might find it tedious to get through them on their way to the harder puzzles. Sometimes, kids need two hands to solve the puzzle, which may be difficult for younger kids. This is the kind of puzzle challenger that can be hard to put down; parents may want to discuss setting limits before their kids start to play.

What's it about?

Tap and drag the green smiley face to the One box to start playing WINKY THINK LOGIC PUZZLES. In each puzzle, kids have to move one or more colored shapes to a matching home base. When placed correctly, the shape turns green. Early puzzles are mostly about matching colored shapes to their correct target or moving shapes around fixed obstacles or through simple mazes. Later puzzles introduce moving obstacles and other challenges. Complete each puzzle to unlock the next. There are 180 puzzles total, categorized into three levels of difficulty; passing from one level to the next earns a trophy.

Is it any good?

Colored shapes and creative layouts make this leveled puzzler as fun to look at as it is to play. However, not all kids will find Winky Think Logic Puzzles to be the right fit for them. The early levels are quite easy and are thus appropriate for preschoolers, who will probably enjoy them. However, progress chugs along slowly, and older kids have to slog through all the super simple levels before they get to more challenging territory. Not all kids will have the patience for that. An easy workaround would be to remove the system of locking higher levels or to create multiple entry points. Also, most, if not all, puzzles have one correct answer. Though kids need to exercise their logical thinking skills to arrive at that answer, there's not much room for creativity. It would be nice to see some flexibility in how a puzzle can be solved. Despite these downsides, overall Winky Think Logic Puzzles offers quality fun and is a great way to get kids to problem-solve, think logically, and plan solutions.
