ABOUT BUSY SHAPES
Busy Shapes helps children improve their ability to handle simple objects through a series of puzzles, in which they must change simple shapes and place them in proper holes. Along the way, the app responds to each child’s actions with positive guidance and motivation. Plus, the app’s digital exploratory playground regularly refreshes with different objects, which keeps children interested and engaged.

INSPIRED BY JEAN PIAGET
Busy Shapes is inspired by the pioneering works of famed Swiss scientist and intelligence expert Jean Piaget (1896-1980), who believed that “children are little scientists”, and that a child's thoughts are built through experiences that encourage him or her to engage in the reasoning process.

INNOVATIVE, SCALEABLE PLATFORM
Busy Shapes’ innovative scaleable platform for evolving experimentation lets children take advantage of the time they spend on touch screens -- so they aren’t just having fun, but learning every second of the way.

KID-FRIENDLY DESIGN
Busy Shapes features a special “kid-friendly” design that compensates for the fact that when young children hold an iPad or iPhone, they often have a finger touching the screen.

“PASSING” SWIPE CONTROL
Busy Shapes features “passing” swipe control that is essential for young children's quick hands (i.e. even if a child's finger reaches an object after he or she was already touching the screen, the object is still grasped as intended).

POWERFUL ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI)
Busy Shapes’ powerful AI supports each child’s unique learning journey. For example, the AI tracks the time it takes each child to complete a level, and increases or decreases difficulty accordingly.

GUIDED ACCESS
To prevent children from exiting the app by pressing the “home” button, Busy Shapes features a customizable Guided Access. This feature also disables selected parts of the screen for safety and protection.

REAL-TIME MONITORING
Parents can access real-time monitoring and get advice on how to guide their children. They can also track their child’s progress updates via Apple’s Game Center.

SEAMLESS INTERACTION
Busy Shapes’ seamless interactive game area never blocks or limits children, and lets them freely access shapes. The menu is also neatly hidden away.

AUTOMATIC MEMORY
Sometimes the best learning is a combination of cognitive exercise and physical play. Busy Shapes’ automatic memory saves a child’s place in any particular game, which makes the app an ideal complement to physical play and for shorter games.

MULTIPLE LANGUAGE SUPPORT
The app is now available in: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, Greek, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Turkish, Russian, Korean, Indonesian, Malay, Vietnamese, Thai, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese

Editors’ Notes

Slide a shape into the correct hole—easy, right? It is, at first. But what makes Busy Shapes so clever is the way it gently gets more challenging, motivating little kids to find solutions to each puzzle through experimentation. From shape-changing to color-mixing to hidden holes, we’re impressed with how the gameplay spurs out-of-the-box thinking, stimulating curious young minds.

Great for our 2 year old

Our little guy fell in love with this app. We only let him use the iPad every now and then, but when he does, this is the go-to. It’s brilliant in its presentation of shapes and colors, but also works on vision and recognition. There are not enough apps out there for toddlers that are simple enough for them to learn while having fun. Too many are focused just on the gaming aspect, but for the little ones, repetition or the basics is important. Thank you Edoki!!
