Kids Animated Puzzle is an app designed with toddlers in mind, packed with colourful animations and catchy sounds. The app will help little ones develop their hand-eye coordination with eight thematic games ranging from farm animals to vehicles. The puzzles are engaging and will keep children interested as long as they don’t access a feature where they will be exposed to other apps from the same developer. We had some problems with the sounds getting stuck in the background but overall we think it’s an entertaining app so we gave it a 4 star EAS Certification rating.

Teacher Review

Kids Animated Puzzle is a really cute app especially created for toddlers and small babies already interested mobile devices. The app helps children with their ability to identify shapes and objects. The app itself is not so challenging after a while and there are no difficulty levels so kids might get bored with it once they go through the games several times. The app is very useful for keeping them entertained and the little puzzle games are really colourful.

On opening the app you’re welcomed by the young narrator’s voice who welcomes you to the kingdom of animated puzzles. The main screen doesn’t offer too many temptations for the little ones: you have the settings on the top right side and the info on how to play on the left side. The access throughout the app is done by sliding a button (that actually looks like a sewing button). Now we did not have any problems with and the screen was responsive, but when trying it with less pressure, like children will do it was a bit more difficult. Nonetheless kids we’ll learn to do it if they’re shown several times and as they continue playing with the app.

After you slide the button you get to see and explore 8 different games, all based on matching different objects or dragging them in the correct place. The eight thematic categories are:

Farm animals -  a drag and match activity, where kids have to identify the corresponding shapes – each animal then makes its specific sound

Zoo Animals – a drag and match activity, where kids have to guess the correct animal shapes -  at any time once they complete the game they can tap on the animals to hear the sounds they make

Xylophone – this was our favourite -  children have to match the colourful  wooden bars and then they can tap on them and play with the xylophone

Ice creams – build your own ice cream with puzzle blocks and then tap on it to ‘eat’ it and see it disappear

Vehicles 1 & 2 – drag the vehicles to their place and hear the sounds they make

Flowers 1& 2  -  grow your own flower by moving the pictures to create clouds that give rain and make your plant grow

We really enjoyed playing with the app and we think a lot of effort has been put into it. The design is spot on, colourful and with high-resolution animations that looked beautiful on the Nexus 7 tablet we used for this review. The sounds each object makes are playful and we believe kids will easily imitate them.

We had two overall concerns regarding the app: the unprotected links and a technical problem with the sound. We know developers want to show their other apps but our recommendation is that these features should be protected by a password in order to allow a distraction free learning and play experience for children. The first time we played one of the vehicle theme games the sound got stuck on one of the objects, in our case the train. Even when we left the game the train sound was playing in the background. We went back to the other vehicles game and the sound of the ambulance got also stuck on top of the train sound. Going back did not solve the problem so we had to force close the app. It happened again when we went back to test it. We’re sure this is just a glitch that can be fixed with an update.

Puzzle play, no matter the age, is not only entertaining but it can also provide lots of learning opportunities: exercise memory, develop fine muscle movements, help the eye-hand coordination, increase awareness and solving skills. We recommend Kids Animated Puzzle as a fun alternative to a real puzzle...and also a less messy one; at least you don’t have to fear you’ll lose any puzzles with an app.
