Overview

Spatter & Spark Pro is a creative and entertaining app that combines an interactive story, educational games, and an art activity that children of all ages will enjoy. Spatter is a cute, artistic porcupine and Spark is a creative fox who invents various gadgets and gizmos to help him around the home. In the interactive story, this duo goes on an exciting adventure to create the perfect gadget that will allow Spatter to catch a glimpse of the baby crow he is trying to paint. This is one app that children will enjoy not only for the cute characters and easy to use interface, but also for the diverse activities to explore.

Features include:

  • Narration options
  • Interactive story
  • 4 Additional activities
  • Multiple child profiles
  • Parent dashboard to track progress

Quality

Spatter & Spark includes wonderful illustrations with bright colors and intricate textures that make them look very crafty. For example, inside the crow’s home there are little buttons and push pins that hold decorations etc. The illustrations in the story and activities are interactive and children will enjoy tapping and touching various images to watch them come to life. The audio includes high energy narration along with other sound effects and music that coincide with the illustrations.

The only complaint I have is the speed of the transitions from page to page. There are some areas where it seems the app doesn’t respond as quickly and you have to wait for a few seconds before the page turns or the app responds in some of the activities. Other than that, the developers have done a great job with the overall feel of the app.

Education

The story in this app allows children to practice their reading skills by following along with the narrator using the text highlighting or by reading to themselves. They also have the opportunity to use their creativity by painting their own masterpieces and can save them for sharing later. The balloon game provides practice identifying colors and various items in a fun game. The bug pie game is great for counting and the safari game allows children to practice identifying various animals.

As children complete each of the three levels in the games, they earn stickers that indicate their progress. Parents also have the option of tracking their child’s progress by using the parent dashboard portion that will provide information on cognition, language, and creativity. Overall, this app provides many opportunities for practicing general educational skills in a fun and engaging virtual environment.

Entertainment

Spatter & Spark Pro is not only educational, but it is fun to play too. The interactive story includes animated scenes and a cute story-line that children will love. The developers have also done a wonderful job creating each game in a way that will not only allow children to practice certain skills, but will do so in an engaging environment. Whether kids are reading the story, counting bugs, painting, or looking at various safari animals in the dark, one thing is for sure, they will be having a blast playing.

Value

At the time of review, the Pro version of this app includes all of the activities and story for just under four dollars which might seem a little pricey to some parents, however the quality, education, and entertainment you get for that price is wonderful and well worth it. There is a free version that will allow children to try the app to see if they like it and in that version are a variety of in-app purchases that allow you to purchase each individual activity separately or the entire package for $3.99. It is definitely worth it to buy the pro version if you enjoy the free version and you won’t be sorry you did.

Child Friendliness

Spatter & Spark is great for young children as it allows them to practice various skills and have fun at the same time. It also allows you to set up various child profiles which is great for families with more than one child and parents can track the progress of each child separately. The user interface is easy to use and very intuitive so children won’t need much help from parents and since there are no social media links or advertisements, there is no worry they may get into an area they shouldn’t be.

Spatter & Spark Pro is a creative educational app with tons of activities and interactive components that will keep children engaged and entertained for hours.
