This app presents a digital version of a real life felt board. The game uses the child’s imagination through play and design. There are many background scenes to select from to start with including plain colours, a farm yard, a ship, a theatre and a night sky scene. Once the scene is set the user can choose from multi-coloured characters, hairstyles and faces, then clothes from various outfits, additional objects ranging from trees to pirate flags, shapes and text. The scope of this activity is very wide and the user can increase/decrease the sizes of the objects and move them anywhere on the board. Fine motor skills will be needed to select and move the items on the board.
Felt Board is a well-designed app that is suitable for all ages. The navigation is very intuitive (and there are clear instructions) and there is a wide variety of objects/characters/clothing/scenery to manipulate and play with. This game will develop fine motor skills and hand-to-eye coordination. Adults will enjoy creating stories for their child and early childhood educators can use this app for teaching and learning purposes. The app is completely safe as there is no access to the Internet, no advertising and no in-app purchases. It is therefore highly recommended for children aged 4+.
