Shape Builder Reviews on iTunes

“A MUST have App for little ones!!!!!” – 5 stars

by Preschool Mommy

If you’re looking for apps that are educational and entertaining for preschoolers…this one is both! It took my 5 year no time to understand how to play…and then I couldn’t get my phone back. The sound effects when the piece is put in the correct location gave him the encouragement to continue the puzzle. He has a blast with this app and I get a much needed break.

“Great Kids Game” – 5 stars

by 27ragbag

My two kids love this app. The graphics are very well done and the sound effects are spot on. I was surprised at the number of puzzles Shape Builder provides. It’s cool watching my 3 year old learn how to drag the puzzle pieces around on the iPhone screen…he gets all excited when he hears the “click” of the shapes going into place. It’s a deal for .99 cents.

Mister Rogers iPhone App

tv-show-preschool-iphone-app introducing-mister-rogers-iphone-app

We developed “Mister Rogers Make a Journal for Preschoolers” in partnership with PBS KIDS and Family Communications Inc., the producers of MISTER ROGERS’ NEIGHBORHOOD!

Mister Rogers Make a Journal encourages children to identify and talk about their feelings about their everyday experiences like school, playtime, and friends. The App features an animated version of favorite Neighborhood of Make-Believe character Daniel Striped Tiger, who invites children to make a journal to help them reflect on the things they do and to express how they feel.

Emotional Development

Fred Rogers often said “Whatever is mentionable can be more manageable.” This PBS KIDS app encourages children to think about their experiences and helps them find words to express their fellings – mentioning and managing. This process can help young children better understand their emotions and develop a more secure sense of self. Kids choose from amoung five topics: Books, Mad Feelings, Playtime, Pretending, and School. They can then assemble pictures of story-building blocks that relate to the topic in order to tell their own journal stories.

Create your own library

Journals can be saved in a digital library for sharing anytime. Using virtual crayons, markers, watercolors and stickers, children can draw a custom cover for each journal to make it easy to find later.

Explore emotions together

These journals can give children a way to express and share their feelings with the adults who care about them. It can be an especially useful tool for children who might be reluctant to talk about their feelings. As you talk together about your child’s experiences and feelings at school, at play and at home, parents have an opportunity to get to know their child better.
