[prMac.com] Melbourne, Australia - GiggleUp today is proud to announce updated Awesome Shape Puzzles 123 v2.1 for iOS. More than just a puzzle game, this latest app by GiggleUp seeks to give young children endless opportunity to learn about the world around them during the prime of their curiosity. Awesome Shape Puzzles 123 works like a picture dictionary consisting of more than 150 everyday words with the added value of a shape puzzles game to develop important learning and problem solving skills.
Connecting an image with a sound is one of the most natural and effective ways to learn. Parents commonly point to an object while saying its name and then encourage their child to repeat it out loud. In this kids app, each original drawing is accompanied by a friendly and clear voice guide that teaches the child about the names of different everyday objects.
The play mechanics are straightforward and easy to grasp, so that children as young as two will have no trouble having a go on their own, while smaller toddlers may benefit from some parental guidance. Multiple play modes caters to the different learning needs of children between the ages of 1 and 6. The 'single piece' mode allows young toddlers to drag missing whole objects to their correct places. Switch to the 'easy puzzle' play mode for beginner shape puzzles (2-4 piece), and 'hard puzzle' (7-10 piece) for the bigger kiddies who are up for a challenge!
Additional games, such as Balloon Pop! and a fun stickers collection creates delight and merriment all round as players are rewarded for their hard work after completing the puzzles.
Why stop at learning words in English? With 9 languages to choose from, including English, Spanish, Chinese Mandarin, Japanese, French, Swedish, German and Italian - all recorded by native speakers - parents can join their kids in learning exciting new words together.
