Description

Learn SHAPES! Illustrated by Joyce Hesselberth, author and illustrator of the children's book SHAPE SHIFT. Each animated puzzle hides up to 20 shapes. This game teaches your child circles, diamonds, ovals, rectangles, semicircles, squares, trapezoids, and triangles. Each type of shape is explained and identified. Play a game of hide and seek. Some shapes are in plain sight, but some can be tricky to find! Do I spy an oval, hidden in the tree? Do I spy a diamond kite floating in the sky? See how many shapes you can find in each puzzle!

Bloesem Kids – "...the graphic details in this app are so beautifully done that it looks like you were reading a children’s book or a nursery rhyme."

Daily Candy Kids - "With fresh, modern graphics in a citrusy palette, each screen could be nursery art."

LMNOP magazine - "It's awesome! Perfect for kids ages 2-6. The illustrations are divine…"

Customer Reviews

The num of pictures is too small

Had dying

The num of pictures is too small, soon my kid played all of them. If you add more shapes and pictures, I would like pay more.

Great graphics and counting, but lacks full classroom appeal

While the graphics are wonderful and the verbal counting the app does is beneficial, the app still could use some improvements before being used in the classroom. While students enjoy playing the game, it might be beneficial if more puzzles were added and different profiles could be created for a teacher to track individual student progress. Adding a hint button might be beneficial as well for students who really struggle to find remaining shapes. Even though the app could benefit from a few adjustments, it does a very good job of showing that shapes can be in different sizes and orientations, something which students often struggle with when they are young. While it is not a perfect app for the classroom, it would be enjoyable for students to play at home and much more beneficial to play than a traditional video game.

Beautiful and unique

The object of this educational game is to find all items on the screen with similar shape as the one announced. Each screen is beautifully illustrated and there are visual and explanation of each shape at the bottom of the screen to provide guidance. The game counts out loud from 1 to up to 20 as each shape is found but it doesn't tell you how many you are supposed to find. Replay value could be an issue if no new illustrations get added on a regular basis - once you have the included illustrations memorized, there isn't much fun or challenge to revisit them. I found the control to be very responsive on both my iPad2 and iPhone4 (which has an added zoom feature). While gameplay and spoken instructions may not be suited for younger toddlers, SHAPES is a clean and polished app for kids to learn to count and identify shapes.
