Kidz Mix is a great iPhone and iPad app that teaches kids a variety of topics such as numbers, the alphabet, and even information about countries around the world. If you’re looking for an educational app is both affordable and fun, Kidz Mix is worth a look.
While it’s not unusual to find educational apps that offer a variety of subjects, it can be tricky to find one that’s easy to navigate. Kidz Mix, developed by Gomathy Shankaran, features a very organized layout and everything is pretty self-explanatory, so kids shouldn’t have any problems with finding their way around.
Kidz Mix primarily focuses on the 26 letters of the alphabet and numbers 1 through 10. There are five different areas for kids to explore: three sections for the alphabet and two sections for numbers.
For the first alphabet activity, Kidz Mix shows kids a transportation vehicle that starts with the letter they select. The second alphabet activity features a country that starts with that letter, along with details about that country such as capital, flag, and climate.
The third alphabet activity also features transportation vehicles, but this time there’s a short video clip that accompanies the letter. This is a great way for kids to see the vehicle in action, and it also helps them learn about the vehicle because they’ll remember what it does.
For numbers, Kidz Mix also uses transportation vehicles to represent numbers 1 through 10. However, the first activity is just a simple counting exercise.
The second numbers activity, however, is a combination of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. This activity features an equation for each number. For example, number 6 shows the equation 3×2 = 6.
Personally my favorite activity that Kidz Mix offers is the alphabet activity with countries. Not only is this a great way for kids to learn about nations around the world, but parents might even learn a thing or two, as well. I really like the fact that each letter shows the country’s currency, languages, government, climate, flag, capital, and more.
Overall, Kidz Mix is definitely an educational app that kids will likely enjoy. Parents will be happy to know that the app doesn’t feature any in-app purchases or external links.
When it comes to price, $1.99 might seem a little high, but the app is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad.
Kidz Mix requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
