Happi Connect & Collect is all about identifying what the three objects have in common and spelling the word correctly; doing so children will be rewarded with cheers and silly collectible cards.
Hint buttons and positive feedback
Nice quality design elements have been used throughout the app. The music, colors and graphics are likely to appeal to children of all ages.
The interface is simple allowing children to easily navigate between game play and checking out cards they have collected.
Multiple language options are available which could have additional educational benefits for those learning multiple languages.
The main educational features of Happi Connect & Collect are spelling and children being able to determine the commonality between the three objects. Three objects are presented; the word for each object is spoken aloud. The children then need to spell the word using letters provided. One button tells the user if it is a noun, verb or adjective; the hint button offers more detailed clues.
When a word is spelled correctly the child is rewarded with a cheery celebration and stars. Stars are then used to purchase the collectible cards.
The game is divided into five sections with 12 levels in each. Levels become progressively more difficult as the user advances. After completing all levels within a section the levels can be replayed. Adorable and silly collectible cards add to the fun.
With the current price of just under three dollar this nice quality app contains a good amount of content making it a reasonable purchase. Adding more levels and cards without increasing the price would prolong the life of the app on a family’s device. Multiple user accounts would be a benefit to this universal app.
The app interface is easy to use for users of all ages. Children are able to begin play quickly and easily. Parents will appreciate the simple method used to protect the section intended for them and the settings options.
