Top 10 reasons to get Splish Splash Inn!

1. It's a great way to help toddlers and pre-schoolers on the pre-math skill of connecting numbers to actual quantities.
2. The illustrations are beautiful! (By a regular contributing artist to The New Yorker)
3. It takes place in an underwater hotel!
4. You can play Mary Had a Little Lamb on the starfish in room #5!
5. It's a great way to work with younger ones on teaching cause and effect (if you touch the door, it opens!)
6. It's a fun way to introduce your kids to new sea creatures, like jellyfish, starfish and manta rays.
7. The sea-creatures make music when you touch them - like notes on an underwater keyboard!
8. It was created with children's developmental milestones in mind.
9. You can play in English, French, or Spanish!
10. You can watch your child dance to the opening theme song!

Even better

This is an addendum to a previous review for the iphone version. Picked this up for my ipad, and it's even better! Really crystal clear, beautiful graphics that really shine when using the ipad version. And with more real estate in terms of screen space of the ipad, it allows the kids more space to move the sea animals around and play music, really keeping the little ones involved in the game. Well worth the money to upgrade if you have an ipad.

Previous Review:
"I play this game constantly with my nieces and nephews, and they can't get enough. The art is fantastic, really great imagery and art direction on this one, something adults can appreciate as much as kids. I'm really impressed with all the little details(the sound effects kids can control, making their own little jingles, as well as the way kids can control the movement of the animals). Great interactivity to keep the kids engaged, it's a fun and well-thought out app. Highly recommended

Splish Splash Inn

This is an extraordinarily captivating counting game, which has a number of fun variations for both children and adults. In addition to learning numbers, the app helps the child learn sea animal names, and each of the animals produce music or sounds and can be shuffled around the screen. There is also the ability to use the app in Spanish or French, in addition to English, which deepens the experience. We give this the highest possible rating -- and it is very reasonably priced! Great for children of all ages!
