Shopkeeper+ has been specially designed to add fun to maths. Using this App children will learn to count objects and add numbers, with questions as simple as ‘how many apples’ and as challenging as 10 + 10. The subtle staged approach which uses gold stars as a reward moves from counting objects, into adding a number to some objects before finally adding 2 numbers (between 0 and 10).
The setting is a shop and you are the shopkeeper responsible for counting how many items the customer has in the basket. Each correct answer earns you money which can be used to purchase a wide range of goods to sell in the shop – from apples and carrots to balloons and party hats.
The App is suitable for children from 3 to 7; the cute rabbit characters, the shop scenario and the ability to stock the shelves with goods create the fun whilst the children count and enjoy the experience without thinking they are doing maths!
If you get an answer wrong 3 times, the senior shopkeeper will appear and help you count up to the correct answer.
Shopkeeper + has:
• 3 difficulty levels
• 10 learning levels (the gold stars)
• 4 characters
• 18 types of goods for sale in the shop
• Counting advice from the senior shopkeeper if you get your sums wrong
• A detection system to offer other sums if you keep getting them wrong
• A memory to allow you to return to where you left off if you stop playing
• A reset facility so you or someone else can start the game over again
• Controls to turn the music and sound effects on or off
• An on-going random question generator once 10 gold stars have been won

Shame not to see what's being bought at the end
My 6 year old loved playing all the stages in one session, except when we got to the end and you can no longer see what the rabbits are buying. It's great to progress onto just numbers but her real pleasure and motivation lay in choosing what to stock in the shop and then seeing what they bought. If there could be an image of what they were buying behind the numbers that would be great. She enjoys going back to this game but the end phase is always disappointing. Otherwise it would be 5 stars, for a simple, lovely game.
simple but fun
Shopkeeper Plus is a simple but fun game, it features very bright and well illustrated artwork, nice music and sound effects. The game is very simple but provides a great way for kids to learn how to add up, there is variety with the feature that allows you to buy more goods for your shop, as well as varying degrees of difficulty. Music and sound fx can be disabled so you could play the game and listen to music at the same time. Highly recommended.
I downloaded this app for my 5 year old daughter a week ago and I haven't been able to wrestle my phone off her ever since. Kinda. Well, actually she asks for it when she wakes up, she plays it in the car on the way to school and at bedtime. Most important of all, it's really stoked her interest in numbers and mathematics. Previously she'd been ambivalent about maths. Success!
