Matching Jobs helps your child learn while having fun. It is an educational game by Tots Publishing that helps kids aged 3-6 years learn the names of different jobs and the vehicles or tools each profession uses and where they work. Your little ones will learn by matching each of the occupations with their respective vehicles, places of work as well as the tools they use. Some of the jobs included in this entertaining and educational application are policeman, fire fighter, soldier, bus driver and many more.
In each pack, the kids will drag the occupation represented by a character to their correct pairing - either the vehicle, work place or tool of trade. For example, the bus driver drives a bus, the policeman uses the handcuffs, the fireman goes to the fire station and many more.
The captivating background music, cheerful narration and colorful illustrations will help enhance the overall experience. Key learning words are highlighted in blue to help them in recognizing the words. What appears as a fun game is actually stimulating your kids’ learning ability.
These are some of the features offered in Matching Jobs:
* Simple, clean, easy-to-use and kid-friendly interface
* Includes 3 popular jobs for free download with 23 more jobs to be unlocked in each of the 3 packs.
* Drag to match the jobs to its pairing with a simple motion
*When a pairing is correct, both words (highlighted in blue) will be used in a sentence to help the child recognizes the words and remembers the connection.
*Easy slider for quick and fun selection of the jobs to play
*Choice of background music to suit your child’s mood
* In-app purchase options - Vehicles Pack, Work Places Pack and Tools of Trades Pack at only USD 0.99 each.
This app is a lot more fun and interactive than flash cards will ever be. It uses audio and visual stimulation to teach; helping your little ones to better understand and remember the content.

What's New in Version 2.1
I wish we could leave some of the jobs out, pick and choose which ones we want to use.
Also, there are a few of the matches that do not accept the correct answer unless you get it in a very small correct response area. Developers need to check this and expand correct choice areas.
Other than that it is a great program.
Very simply and made for young ones to use
What I like most about it is the simplicity it has. No confusing menus for my kids to get lost in and easy to understand exactly what to do. This is how you make a learning game for kids!
My 2 year old recommends this one!
My little girl loves this game. What she doesn't realize is that she is learning while she plays.
It also has great voice acting and very clear and understandable.
Would recommend the 99 cent unlock as well. 👍
