Reviewers comments

This App is designed for very young learners and presents a collection of simple puzzles where the player has to match the shape to its appropriate hole. Simple graphics and sound effects add to the appeal of the games and the simple interface and sound based rewards made this appealing for children aged 2-5 years. The game engages players simple problem solving tasks and in reasoning, while allowing free play and exploration. By playing with your child, there is opportunity to extend and build on language development and to collaboratively play.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
