Domi Domi Nature Shapes is very educational. It is designed to help toddlers and preschoolers master the skills of matching by shape, size, and/or color, sorting/classifying, using fine motor skills and more. Children who play will also be practicing focusing their attention, picking out relevant items from a busy background (figure-ground skills), and attention to detail. All of these readiness skills will help young children get ready for more complex tasks as they prepare to enter school.
This app is engaging on many levels. The illustrations are brightly-colored and interesting, the animations are fun to watch, and the tasks are challenging, yet appropriate for the very young. Background music is bouncy and upbeat, yet not so stimulating that kids will want to stop and “dance.” Plus, parents can turn the music on or off as desired. The characters are realistic in their shapes, yet easy to match. The app shows pictures of birds, bugs and fish for the various activities. Matching exercises require kids to match the shapes of the creatures to their shadow outlines. Sorting exercises involve putting groups of like creatures together. All in all, it’s simple, yet a lot of fun. The sound effects and animations that reward correct responses are cute, yet not overwhelming.
This app is a fine value at $2.99 in the App Store. There is a lot of play value here for young children, plus parents can reset the app back to its original state and kids can “start over” whenever you wish. This one is likely to be a favorite for as long as your child finds these types of readiness activities interesting.
Domi Domi Nature Shapes is very child-friendly. Be sure to visit the protected Parents’ Section to learn about changes that you should make in the Settings of your device to make it as child-friendly as possible.
