PunflayKids--A Review

I got an iPad for Christmas.

(Jealous much?)

And because I got an iPad, I got an opportunity to review some cool apps for my kids.

From their website:

PunflayKids is a division devoted to developing apps (iPad) for young, growing children. These apps are meant to be for fun, holidays & special occasions and casual learning purposes.

They are developed with an eye to thrill, fascinate and engage the young ones' minds and provide value for money.

My Review

PunflayKids provided me with four different apps to review: Rhymes for Tots, Kandy Fish, ABC Numbers, and Puzzle Mania.

The first three apps are definitely designed for my middle child, C. She's 3 1/2 and is eager to learn.

I could only open up one of the nursery rhymes in Rhymes for Tots, but it is fun and interactive. There is an animated video of the rhyme plus five educational-but-fun activities.

Kandy Fish is C's absolute favorite! The animated fish swim all over the screen and kids get to drag them around sorting by color, finishing patterns, and drawing shapes.

ABC Numbers is probably the most educational of the four I received. In the ABC section, kids can explore the alphabet through pictures, letters, phones, and writing. There's a neat touch scroll on the side of the screen that makes navigation a breeze. In the Numbers sections, kids are introduced to basic math skills. They can tap a number to hear the number spoken and see that number of objects on the screen. They can count the objects themselves by tapping the pictures and have the corresponding number light up on the number line.

I also got to review Puzzle Mania which is more of a family app than child app. There are four different logic/math puzzles (can you tell why I was interested?) that are just challenging enough without being frustrating. I think kids would enjoy them, too, though they may not fully understand what they're supposed to do or how the puzzles work.

All in all, I am very pleased the with my iPad apps from PunflayKids! They are all fun and interactive with bright graphics and easy to use. And they're mostly inexpensive, too.

This post was written for Family Review Network and PunflayKids who provided the complimentary product for review in exchange for my honest opinions.
