Developer Description

Heavy or Light is a colourful educational game for children of all ages to learn about the weight of, and how to weigh objects. There are three game modes included so that it will appeal to children and toddlers with different interests.

Heavy or Light’s game mode presents two different objects and you have to choose which is heavier. Currently there are 25 different objects; when compared to each other this will give up to 300 combinations to play with. More objects will be added in the future.

Guess the Weight mode presents an object on a scale along with a variety of different weights. You can then drag weights and try to balance the scale, and determine the weight of the object. The game does not use pounds, ounces, kilograms or grams, but simplifies the weighing process to make it accessible for young toddlers. It teaches children how to measure the weight of an object by allowing them to use different numbers to total up to the objects being weighed. It also encourages them to use maths skills as they will start to see patterns by using the 1, 5, 10, 25 and 50 unit weights (not lb or kg specific).

The free play mode allows you to take any of the objects (toys, animals, and fruit) and place them on the scale to compare against other objects. You can see which objects or combinations of objects weigh more than others. There is no goal or time limit, and the child is encouraged to just move the items around and test them against each other.

* Three modes of play
* 25 unique objects to weigh and interact with (toys, animals, fruit)
