Instant hit with my toddlers!

My 4 y.o was hooked immediately! Thought it might be a little tricky for my 2.5 y.o., but no! With a little assistance for the first couple of puzzles, she was off on her own! They both cheer for one another after every puzzle. One thing that sets this puzzle app apart from other puzzle apps is the sequence of the puzzle building, which makes it both challenging, rewarding, and surprising. It also makes them think ahead and try to guess what the pictures will be after building the puzzle. The picture puzzle start out as ambiguous shapes/colors to piece together. After they complete the build the detailed picture of the larger shape appears! It's an exciting reveal. (this made it fun for me to watch too bc I was curious to see the outcome) It's great - the learning experience is layered. I also like how it's mixed with picture puzzles and basic letter puzzles. I bought the full version within the hour bc they were demanding more! (although there are a lot of puzzles in this free version than most free apps) A new favorite - Thanks!

Shape Builder awesome app for my 4 year old

Shape Builder is the favorite among the many educational apps that I have downloaded for my four year old. This app teaches and enhances hand-eye coordination as well as matching skills. The reward is awesome when all of the pieces are fit in the correct place, you get to see exactly what the item is. As a bonus it plays a sound or verbalizes the item. Keep up the good work.

My 2 yr old LOVES this!!

I wasn't sure if my 2 yr old would be able to play this game, but I decided to go ahead and let hime try. He absolutely loves it. The other day he was playing it... when he woke up from his nap the first words out of his mouth..."I want to play puzzle on your phone!" I might need to go buy an iTouch just so he can play this game and I can have my phone back.
