What our experts think

This is a nice simple app and just the right level of difficulty for preschoolers. They loved the challenge of completing the various jigsaw puzzles and you could really see them thinking hard, but they were also able to work the answer out by themselves which is great for independent learning. We like that the number of pieces in the jigsaw puzzles can be changed, so the games can be changed to suit different levels of ability as well as encourage progression through harder levels.

The themes used were also really good for encouraging recognition of shapes, numbers and fruit, and our testers loved naming each one as they worked on the puzzles. This is a great way to test their knowledge and promotes discussion around the topics, such as asking children which number is the biggest or smallest. The app also names the objects and numbers out loud, reinforcing learning.

It would be even better if...

It would have been nice to see something more interesting when puzzles were finished, such as an animation, which may have made the games more exciting for children.
