Puzzles are so much fun! Fortunately, there are so many awesome puzzles apps for kids on the iPhone/iPad.  Here’s a list of our 4 favorites right now:

  • My First Tangrams (iPhone – $1.99, iPad – $1.99)  – “This game is an adaptation for kids of the famous Tangram game. Rules have been simplified (no rotation needed at all) to allow every kids to solve all the Tangrams. With colorful shapes, smooth animations, peaceful background music, your kids will have fun to solve the 36 different Tangrams we’ve created.”  We’ve had this app for a while now, and Jude still loves it!
  • Shape-O (iPad – $1.99) – “Shape-O! ABC’s is an activity for preschool age kids that encourages ‘learning by doing’ by integrating puzzles, shapes, words, colors and sounds.”  I love how this app includes not just puzzles, but also words that the kids would have to spell out.
  • My First Puzzles (iPhone – $1.99, iPad – $1.99) – “With 14 different puzzles, nice sound effects, beautiful graphics, this game will entertain your children while improving their motor skills.” Also, a puzzle app that we have had for a while, but we just absolutely love it. It’s getting a little too easy for Jude now, but I’m sure that Seth will enjoy it!
  • Bloki (iPad – $0.99) – “Blöki is a block-building application for children. We’ve done our best to bring the world of wooden block building to your iPad. There is no time limit, no points, and no leader-board. This application has been designed to provide a canvas for your child to express their creativity and provide a purely tactile experience in the digital realm.”  Bloki is a simple, yet really entertaining app!  It’s fun to see what kind of creations we can build.

These apps are great and totally worth checking out.  If you find some cool apps for kids, please share!
