[prMac.com] Las Vegas, Nevada - Cubic Frog Apps today is pleased to introduce Preschool EduKitty 1.0 for iOS, their new Educational Game for both toddlers and preschoolers ages 2 - 5. Featuring colorful 3D graphics in HD and a lovable 3D Kitty as their guide, kids play a mix of 14 different learning games, including: Directions (Left, Right, Top, and Bottom), Matching Patterns, Matching Sounds, Shapes, Colors, Numbers, The Alphabet, Differences, Sizes (Big and Small), Matching Pictures and Matching Silhouettes. Parents and kids can control the difficulty of questions with three different playing levels, and all 14 different games can be turned on/off individually. The best-selling game has been in the US App Store Top 1% of all Educational Games since 9/12 for both iPad and iPhone, and has been featured in Apple's What's Hot for both iPad and iPhone in two categories: Games/Educational and Games/Kids.
Preschool EduKitty is an inspiring and beautifully realized game for young kids. There are three requirements for a successful educational game.
First, it must be inviting. The rainbow of colors, glossy 3D Kitty, animated magic stars, and joyous narration and sound effects make this the hot fudge sundae of iOS games for young kids.
Second, the pedagogical aims of the game must be well camouflaged. Although the 14 games effectively teach basic concepts, skills, and knowledge, the sense of learning is far outweighed by the feeling of playing. Particularly important is that the order of games is random; a different game is always next, completely eliminating boredom or fatigue.
Third, the game must be fun to play. This game is more fun to play than most of its kind, because the challenges are more interesting, the tasks are more varied, the pace is quick, and the encouragement and positive reinforcement are almost palpable.
One of the greatest benefits of the app is the user-friendly Settings page for the parent. Here, they can turn each activity On/Off. For example, if they would like their kids to focus on the Alphabet, they can turn off all the other activities. Similarly, parents can direct their child's learning by focusing on Shapes, Colors, etc. Purchasing a single app, the parent does not need to purchase many separate toddler apps.
The success of Preschool EduKitty in the iTunes App Store is a cause for great pride at Cubic Frog Apps. Certainly, parents and reviewers have played an important part. But the game has achieved it great popularity because kids love to play it. Kids play it with their friends, and their friends get a copy of the game themselves. This is the mark of a wonderful educational game for kids.
