iPad App Review - The Shape of Me and Other Stuff

~ Posted on Wednesday, March 28, 2012 at 12:20 AM ~

When I saw the press release of this app from Oceanhouse Media, I immediately check out the app further. I love the idea of teaching Ben about shapes using shadows and I also wanted Ben to be more excited with shadows in the sense that shadows can be fun too, so I quickly request for a promo code to review it. Anyway, my review as below...

Description from the product page:

"Learn new shapes and words in this wacky, eccentric exploration of silhouettes and Seussian rhymes – perfect for beginner readers!

Children are encouraged to seek out details and ponder unique shapes like "the shape of beans and big machines" or "the shapes of ships and water when it drips!" Kids will love the silly rhymes and funny images, and parents will appreciate this original take on the largely untapped world of shapes.

"The shape of you the shape of me
the shape of everything I see . . .
a bug . . . a balloon, a bed, a bike.
No shapes are ever quite alike."

What's good?

* It is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects in each page on the screen and the words pop out to tell you what it is!

* As mentioned earlier, I wanted Ben to be more excited with shadows in the sense that shadows can be fun too and can reflect a lot of different shapes and objects.

* The illustrations are beautiful and the narration is great!

* I like that some pages rhymes and the app shows a lot of objects that catches my toddler's attention (such as spider web,  balloon, bicycle and so on)
