What I first noticed about this app, is that a lot of thought has gone into the preparation and content of this app, the simple clear instructions, bright engaging colours and the Music is upbeat and fun.
When you open the app you are taken to the activity page with the Pizza image unlocked, as each of the activities increase in difficulties. I like this feature as it teaches our children completion as they can tend to jump from activity to activity.
In each activity your child is encouraged to find shapes in so many different places, from toppings on pizza to creatures in our ocean. All the activities except for the Pizza and Spaceship change each time your child uses it. So you can be sure that your child is listening and learning.
In the menu is an option for Hearing Impaired. Once enabled, the narrator’s and characters’ words appear on the screen, what a wonderful feature for our children to not only to hear the instructions but to also visually see them. This will help so many more children.
Once each section of activities is finished, you are taken to Gazzili Fun Page – again shapes are highlighted.
Overall if you are teaching your children shapes, this app would definitely help them learn, with lots of fun over and over again.
