[prMac.com] Sunnyvale, California - 77SPARX Studio, the premier maker of children's educational iOS games, today introduces Puzzingo 1.0 for all iOS devices. Puzzingo re-imagines the classic toddlers' wooden and jigsaw puzzles for the iPad and iPhone. It preserves the best of these puzzles while incorporating animations, sound, and engaging inter-activities made possible by the new technologies. Over the course of the game, kids learns the names and sounds of different animals, letters, numbers, and toys.
Classic wooden and jigsaw puzzles are great for supporting kids' development. Puzzles support the development of logical thinking, pattern matching, and fine-motor control. Putting together a puzzle is also a "quiet" activity that encourages kids to concentrate for a long period of time. When finished, kids are rewarded with a sense of accomplishments. Moreover, kids enjoy playing puzzles. It is not uncommon to see a kid put together a favorite puzzle, only to break it apart to try again. For all these reasons, puzzles have always been a great educational tool for young children.
Puzzingo 1.0 brings these classic puzzles into iPad and iPhone in a way that preserves the traditional benefits of puzzles, while extending it for the digital age. In Puzzingo, as kids play puzzles, they learn what the different pieces are, and the sound different things make. As they finish a puzzle they get to enjoy different "celebrations" - basically mini-games that range from singing the ABC song, popping balloons, to swatting flies, and more. Once a puzzle is finished, kids will unlock new puzzles to play. All the puzzles come together to build a circus ground.
Topics covered in the Puzzingo puzzles include: farm animals, ocean animals, toys, letters, and numbers.
