Kidz Play Puzzle Offers Many Fun Ways for Kids to Develop Skills

If you’re a parent, I’m sure you’re well aware of the overwhelming number of educational apps and games on the App Store. Kidz Play Puzzle, developed by Gomathy Shankaran,is a fun puzzle game for iOS that uses a variety of puzzles to help kids build important skills.

The goal of Kidz Play Puzzle is to help kids learn through solving various puzzles. There are 5 puzzle categories included in the app: size, shape, type, pattern, and color. The app is part of an educational family of apps, including Body Parts – Basic.

Each category includes roughly 15 puzzles to solve, so kids definitely have plenty to do in Kidz Play Puzzle. Depending on the category chosen, puzzles will require kids to do a variety of things, from choosing which item doesn’t match the rest to finding the object that fits a certain size or shape.

Kidz Play Puzzle also features audio cues for each puzzle, so I definitely recommend turning audio on (and using headphones) to take advantage of this.

Another great feature of Kidz Play Puzzle is the fact that the app keeps track of correct and incorrect responses for each puzzle. When the category set of questions is complete, the final score is shown. This gives both kids and parents a good idea as to how well the child completed the category set.

While I really like the concept behind Kidz Play Puzzle, I had a tough time getting around the fact that the main menu is incredibly difficult to navigate, primarily because it’s tough to distinguish categories from the screen background.

Category titles are very tough to read as a result of small font, and the pictures that demonstrate each category are tiny. This is an easy fix, though, and it’s not something that ruins Kidz Play Puzzle.

Another sticking point about Kidz Play Puzzle is the price. While it’s a great app that accomplishes what it sets out to do, I think $2.99 is a bit high even though it’s a universal app.

However, once a few improvements are made to the app (mainly fixing the main menu), Kidz Play Puzzle has the potential to be a fantastic educational app.

Lastly, it’s worth noting that Kidz Play Puzzle is completely free of in-app purchases and advertisements. There are external links, but they’re protected by the mighty power of a math equation that changes every time an external link is tapped.

Overall, Kidz Play Puzzle is on the right track when it comes to providing kids with a fun way to develop important thinking skills.

I really do like the amount of variety in puzzles, and as much as the menu is a bit of an eyesore, it’s not enough to make me say it’s not worth it. The price, on the other hand, might be more of a turnoff.

Kidz Play Puzzle requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
