What you should know:
Hone a wide range of preschool skills with this jungle-themed app, featuring a cute monkey looking to fill out his lunchbox. Bright colors, kid-friendly graphics and recognizable images (such as fruit) help children intuitively understand the rules of the game.
Once the set-up is complete, little fingers can easily manipulate the controls and play indefinitely, which encourages independent play and problem-solving. The level of difficulty is perfectly suited for young preschoolers; the monkey celebrates correct answers, but shakes his head at incorrect guesses. Don't fret about kids getting frustrated though; this app avoids that trap by allowing children to guess until the correct answer is chosen. Once a child completes three games in a row, he earns a virtual sticker, incentivizing him to tackle more challenges.
The app features a varied mix of games, covering a whole host of educational topics and ensuring that little learners won't get tired of the same activity over and over. While the game doesn't increase in difficulty, the engaging nature of each activity means kids will likely play this app long past the preschool years.
