Preschool Edukitty by Cubic Frog Apps is a universal app which provides hours of fun teaching children a variety of games from matching patterns and sounds to colors, shapes, numbers, big and small sizes, as well as the alphabet guided by the cute kitty. There are three different skill levels that a parent can choose as well as a reward system which includes a visual reward of the kitty sliding down a slide and stamps. Cubic Frog Apps is a branch of Cubic Frog based in Las Vegas, Nevada which provides a variety of creative services including 3D modeling and graphic design.
I really liked the colors and illustrations in the app especially the 3D effects as they made it fun to play with. Our favorite game was the find the difference game which helped you find big versus little. The matching socks game was a hit as well and we have translated this to real life by looking at the socks in the sock drawer and matching them up. The stamps were a great reward system as well as the cat going down the slide for each correct answer. It was helpful to be able to set the settings for the games to an easier one as well as not showing certain games if they were beyond your child’s skill level. Once the child can master it, you knew that they understood all the concepts before moving on to the next level of the app.
I do wish that you could shut off the cat saying “Yay” or “Whee” as it went down the slide since we hear this multiple times during the game. It would also be nice to set up profiles for children so that if you had kids of varying ages that they could each play based on their own ability levels.
If you are looking for a fun, educational app for your preschooler which combines beautiful graphics as well as the ability to customize based on your child’s skill levels this will be a great app for your family. A video demo of the app provides a good visual overview. Priced at $2.99 in the United States app store, this would be a great addition to your idevice.
