Mini-U: ZOO Abracadabra by PopAppFactory – Review
PopAppFactory is a company that develops apps for IOS, Android and Blackberry. Their mission is to create educational apps for kids. Their apps stimulate imagination and creativity. They were founded in 2011 in Kyiv, Ukraine.
This app has three levels. Acrobatic animals are performing a show but the kids can only see their shadows. Tiles run along the bottom of the page. Touch the tile and drag it to the matching shadow and the animal appears! There are between three and five animals in each pyramid.
Sometimes the animal is flipped and facing the opposite way in the pyramid from what is shown on the bottom of the page making it more difficult to solve.
This app works on visual skills necessary to do puzzles. You have to look at the shape of the animal and match it to the shape of the animal.This is a great app to develop problem solving skills. Some of the animals are hiding behind other animals so you can only see part of it which makes the puzzles more difficult.
The developer recommends using the app to talk about night monsters which turn out to be something not so scary after all. I never thought of that. What a great idea!
