Spotty & Friends Playground is a great early learning app full of fun games and interactive images that children are going to love. Loaded with puzzles, shapes, music, and lots of fun outdoor friends to meet and greet, this is one app that little ones can enjoy and explore for hours on end.
The first thing you will notice about Spotty & Friends Playground are the fantastic interactive images that are included. As children move through the app and explore all the fun animals they are greeted with quite realistic sound effects, interactive bits, and fun games to play. The user interface is perfect for little ones as it uses simple tap and drag functioning to move through the app making it easy for players to play and explore on their own. Very well done.
While this isn’t one of the more hard core educational apps it does offer a few educational features and games that children will learn from. For example, there is a shape matching activity that helps children use their problem solving skills to match the appropriate item with the shape provided. There are also lots of fun puzzles for children to enjoy that also provide a bit of practice with problem solving skills. Of course, adding a few other activities with letters or numbers would certainly increase the educational value of the app.
The developers have done an excellent job adding tons of entertainment value for young children. In addition to the playground environment for children to explore and interact with, there are also music and coloring activities that are quite engaging. The coloring activity in particular offers five coloring sheets (in the free version) that can be saved and shared once they are completed. With a variety of puzzles, coloring pages, and a music activity included, Spotty & Friends Playground is highly entertaining and fun for children to play.
Parents will be happy to know that there is a free version of this app that includes the four mini games with five puzzles, coloring pages, and shape activities for children to enjoy. The additional activities (10 puzzles, coloring pages, and shape activities) are available as an in-app purchase of just under three dollars. The free version gives parents the opportunity to preview the app before making further purchases, but even at that price, this app is a very good deal.
The developers have done a nice job of keeping the app easy to use for children of all ages. The user interface allows young children to simply tap and drag their way through the app to access the various interactive images and activities which is great. With that said, parents will want to be aware of the in-app purchase option (that is protected) as well as the social media offer (also protected). While both of these options are protected, they are within the app and can be seen as children are tapping their way through the app.
