Shape-O! ABC’s is a sweet, calming educational app that lets toddlers and preschoolers get their jigsaw puzzle fix (drag-and-drop style) with everything from owls and mice to burgers and robots.
Also? There are letters to be dragged and dropped too for a little sneaky reading practice. F-O-X.
(there is also an iPhone version.)
Why we like it:
This is a very polished, visually pleasing app with intuitive navigation. Clues are easy to come by, and kids can change the entire color scheme of a puzzle by tapping the rainbow icon. We also like the “congratulations” graphics. And with over a hundred puzzles, your kids can play this app all the way to Tokyo.
All in all, a perfect app for the pre-reading crowd.
