Playground 1 – Best of Edition Review

Your children will enjoy playing with this app tremendously. You can tell that the illustrations have been done with a lot of care and attention and the little animals will melt the hearts of users.  The app is split into 12 different games that help children to develop their concentration skills, motor skills, memory skills and sound recognition as well as spending time to sit and play. The creator of the app, Jan Essig, has really taken time to develop an app that is very family friendly. The app collects no data, it contains no adverts, no information is passed on to third parties, no internet connection is required to use the app (which prevents children from accidentally going to other websites) and, all the external links are protected so that wandering fingers stick to the games only.

One of the features that we particularly liked was that Parents can set limits on the amount of time that children spend using the app.  This is fantastic as it means that you can manage your child’s usage of his/her play time with the app. Additionally, if there are any parents out there who are wary of having their child use technology too frequently, this is a great tool to begin implementing healthy boundaries.

We were particularly enchanted by the “Piano” game whereby piano notes are sounded out by animals such as a frog, a cat, a dog and a cow. “Remember” is another game that

Had us engaged for an incredibly long time. The idea is that you have to listen to the notes or sounds that the animals are playing and then you must copy the sounds tapping into the selected note areas. It is a great game for developing memory and a musical ear. Our resident toddler was in awe of the sounds and trying to copy them!

The range of puzzles, “Spot the Difference”, “Catch” and “Pairs” games  amongst others, will keep your child very engaged and will be using his/her brain in a productive manner whilst playing with the app. A fantastic app all round.
