***Named New & Noteworthy by Apple***
***Named What's Hot by Apple***
***Top 75 Education App***

Build A Zoo contains six great educational games for toddlers and preschoolers that are optimized for early learning on both iPhone and iPad.

It's a perfect blend of engaging games and educational activities that help kids learn ABCs, letters, spelling, matching and also provides practice with fine motor skills like dragging and timing.


- Monkey Letter Scramble
Drag letters to spell a word and then watch the monkey dance. Letters are spoken when touched and words are repeated when all letters have been matched. Great way to practice ABCs.

- Bird Card Flip
Flip cards to match birds. Helps develop memory and matching skills. Classic memory game.

- Polar Bear Bowling
Help the polar bears knock down penguin pins -- a light-hearted game that helps kids practice their timing.

- Elephant Mindreading
Toddlers have to find the person in the crowd that the elephant is thinking about. Great for matching and object recognition.

- Turtle Race
Toddlers have to be quick to help the turtle win this race. They need to press a button to power their turtle -- and develop fine motor skills along the way.

- Dolphin Beach Ball
Drag the dolphin to catch the falling balls and keep them out of the water. Great for working on both timing skills and coordination.

Best of all, every time you win a game, you unlock a new part of the zoo, including both animals and visitors.

- Dozens of great sounds effects to help kids understand how the games work
- Balloon animations celebrating every time you win a game
- When not in game mode, you can pinch to zoom in on the zoo and explore what the people and animals are doing
- Designed for and tested by preschoolers with an aim towards enhancing early learning
