iPad App Review - Community Helpers Play & Learn

~ Posted on Friday, December 13, 2013 at 7:10 AM ~

When I received the pitch request from the developer to review this app, I immediately thought of how I can use this app with our 4.5 years old boy in our learning activities. I have not really dwell into occupation topics with him yet so I guess this will be a perfect timing to do so. Without further ado, here goes my feedback...

"Want to help your kids learn about various Community Helpers? Would you like this learning experience to be combined with fun mini games that boost their knowledge and skills? Here is an app that is packed with information about various community helpers such as Firefighter, Police Officer, Doctor, Plumber, Teacher and many more. Children can select a community helper to know what he or she does. They can also tap on the tools & equipment to know what they are called and what they are used for.

 This educational experience is made even more interesting by letting kids help the community helpers accomplish certain tasks (mini games). The scientifically designed mini games provide a lot of opportunity for learning. While playing the mini games the kids are learning their alphabets, numbers, shapes, colors, patterns, sorting and much more. "

* I love the illustrations of this app, it is very cute and pleasing to the eyes.

* I like that the app is easy to use, I don't even have to show our kiddos what to do!

* This is a fun and educational app where you get to figure out the roles a community helper and what are the tools or equipments they used in their work and at the same time of learning that, I used the opportunity in this app to reinforce to our kiddos (especially our 4.5 years old boy) on aspects relating to numbers, alphabets, shapes, colors and so on.

* Our 2 years old Alyson is able to accomplish some of the games such as the vegetables sorting games and the puzzles as well. I'm impressed she is able to do that and I can foresee this app being reused over the time as she grows.

* I am very excited to see the potential of learning opportunities from this app while our kiddos can still be having fun!
