Have fun and learn at the same time with a great set of games and puzzles!
Preschool Funtime! is a collection of 9 different puzzle types, designed to teach while having fun. (Recommended ages 2+)
Designed for unattended and unlimited play, each game flows right into the next, so no confusing user interface to deal with. Each puzzle has voice descriptions and each shape, animal, letter and number has an accompanying spoken description. Child is encouraged by a friendly voice at the end of each puzzle.
Each puzzle is designed to highlight a specific learning area:
✩ Drag and Drop - teaches recognition of shapes and animals, and helps motor skills by having the child put the correct item in its place.
✩ Pick the biggest or smallest - helps teach size differences, bigger and smaller.
✩ Pick the right object - helps a child recognize different shapes and animals and what they are called.
✩ Pick the right color object - teaches colors and color names.
✩ Count the objects - begins the process of learning to count. The amounts of objects to be counted remains small so as to reinforce the basics.
✩ Count the right amount - continues the previous lessons in counting by asking for a specific number of items to be counted.
✩ Pick the numbers in order - further reinforces how numbering works, and the order that the numbers are in. The numbers are kept low, and are scrambled to teach sequencing.
✩ Starts with the letter - begins teaching letters by showing the same shapes and animals that the child is now used to, and highlights the letters of each to provide hints.
✩ Match game - fun quiz to reinforce shapes and memory.
Rewards every few screens with a fun "play with the blocks" area where they can add blocks, forms words, stack them up and even throw them around.
✓ Universal app, so download once, play on all your devices!
✓ Special PARENTS screen where you can keep track of how long your child takes to complete each puzzle, so you know what areas need reinforcement. All stats are integrated with iCloud, so you can keep track no matter which device is used to play.
✓ Absolutely no advertisements, no links to social media, and no In-App Purchase.

Matching game has flaws
This app had such great reviews I decided to give it a try before letting my twin 2.5 yr olds try it. Not super impressed. Really wish I had not paid for it. However, I truly appreciate that the game makers are looking at reviews and fixing things on the game!
Its great that there is a progress screen, but it would be better if you could have more than one profile, so I can see my twins strengths and weaknesses separately.
I think that the game changes too quickly from subject to subject. Instead of just having my child find the blue icecream and then move to shapes or counting, stay on the icecream screen and ask him to find pink, then orange, etc. The same with shapes, ask for multiple shapes in a row. Or have a home screen, where the child can pick their favorite game and play it continually instead of just moving through.
I will have my boys try it out, since I spent money on it, and if they love it, I'll up my rating. I did increase my rating for the fix on the matching game, but of all the learning toddler/preschool apps, as a parents this one is not one of my faves.
There is no voice provided at the end of each puzzle as promised. Your child will have to be able to read in order to accomplish the task set out by each page. And if your child can read, then they probably don't need this app. would give zero stars if possible.
