Child Friendliness

The developers have done a great job creating an environment that is great for kids. The drag and drop functioning is easy to use and great for young children. One thing that would be beneficial for this app is to add a ‘hint’ pop up or button for children who might get stuck with some of the more difficult puzzles.
