Excellent! Highly recommended for parents with young children
This is an excellent puzzle game for kids. I have an almost four-year old girl and a 2 year old girl and they both love this. It is a little difficult for my youngest as she doesn't quite have the coordination to do all the puzzles herself, but she still loves doing them. There are two types of puzzles--the first type is one large picture with several pieces. The second type is five smaller, single-piece puzzles.
The pictures themselves are very well done. The artist is clearly skilled with an eye for delighting children's imaginations. The app is simple enough for my two year old to operate. This is a very well done app that is great to have readily available in a variety of circumstances. The free app is great as you get three good puzzles, but the full version gives you fourteen which I believe is worth the price.
Good, But With Issues
The art is quite nice and the difficulty of the puzzles is appropriate for 2-5 year olds, but there are two things that bring this app down.
1) The puzzles do not advance automatically. Every time you finish one, you need to back out to the menu, then pick the next one to do. This compromises its value as a toddler distraction device, as it is breaks flow after each puzzle.
2) This is difficult to explain, but there is a disconnect between the puzzle pieces and the image that makes it easy to get confused about which piece goes where. You can kind of see this in the sample images, there is a dark brown shape of the puppy on the board, but the actual *piece* is larger, differently shaped, and includes some of the green border. This is even confusing to me, and I'm 34 and quite skilled at wood puzzles.
