This is a FAVORITE of my 5 year old, who sees it as more of a game than a learning tool. ;)
There are 16 different puzzles, each with between 8 and 26 puzzle pieces to match up, including: colors, counting, safari animals, farm animals, alphabets (Hebrew and English), vegetables, transportation, ocean animals, shapes, fruit, musical instruments, clothing, emotions, household items, and toys.
Some of our favorites are the animals and the alphabet. I found it interesting that my 5 year old loves to do the matching as quickly as he can, while my 2 year old loves to listen to the voice while trying to match the puzzle pieces.
Puzzle matching is done easily, by simply dragging each piece across the screen as it appears. When a match is made, a voice says the word, and a new piece appears in the middle of the screen.

At only $1.99, this app is a great one that will help little ones learn and have fun.
Another great thing about this app is that it exposes young children to the concept of multiple languages and provides a platform for early learning of a second language. What a great skill to have!
Find out more about Kids 1st Shape Puzzle at their Facebook page, and download the app from iTunes Store here.
