Our Rating

Life StagesLife Stages is an educational app\that lets children discover the life stages of different creatures. It was created by Storm Educational Software who also make other great apps such as ‘Naming parts of the body’, ‘Seeds to Plants’, ‘Plant Nursery’ and ‘Looking after animals’.

Although the app is aimed at children aged five to seven years old, my three year old enjoyed learning about the life stages of a butterfly, a chicken, a flower, a frog, a human and a tree. With a little help, she was able to pick different images and position them onto different stages of the life process as I read out the stages to her. She liked the little dog dancing once the stages were completed successfully. She also found it interesting to listen to the little snippets of information on each stage photo. She loved the life stage of the chicken the most.

The app has a simple design which works well with neat images, text and a clear voice. It explains the important life stages of different plants, animals and humans. It has an options page to select from English to Spanish, change the level difficulty from easy/medium/hard and sound on/off. It also has an instructions page as well as a reports page which lets parents and teachers check the child’s progress. This app has no in-app purchases or ads.

We experienced a few glitches at times when the image at the bottom changed which made it hard to grab an image and sometimes the same appeared twice, but I am sure this can easily be fixed. We would love more examples of life stages in animals, insects and plants. Some great additions would be the life stages of domestic, wild and farm animals.

Overall, we enjoyed this app which is a great educational tool for home and school for little ones and older children to grasp the concept of life stages. We want more!
