Full Review:

From the farm to the forest, animal recognition and sounds are some of the first skills preschoolers master. Give kids a leg up with AniMatch, a simple memory game that features recognizable, cute critters, along with the sounds they make.

A lack of menus means that kids can begin the game within minutes of the app being downloaded, encouraging quiet time for you and independent play for children. The bold, bright graphics will hold kids' attention while the app's animation makes flipping each tile to find a match satisfying. Kids are delighted with realistic moos, meows, clucks, oinks and other animal sounds (31 in total) each time a square is turned, while parents can opt to disable the sound if they're in the mood for a quieter activity. Difficulty doesn't increase, but the newest version allows you to customize your screen for the season, featuring snowflakes just in time for winter.

Perfect for long road trips or waiting rooms, this app helps children master sound association, hone memorization skills and learn everyday animals—just in time for kindergarten!
