I do enjoy from time to time posting reviews of games I have come across or have been asked to review and give my opinion. One of the makers of games I enjoy reviewing is PunFlay. One of the reason is I love the graphics and the simple ways they have made learning fun.
I recently got a chance to review with Honey Geometry Mathomatix. The purpose of this game is to help your child learn and understand shapes. With five games to play: Say Cheese, Sharkie Shapeater, Frog Jump, match Mission, and Munkee Munch. Each game takes your child into the world of shapes.
Say Cheese: Kids will have fun tracing the shapes in this activity where a cute mouse is trying to get some cheese. Little ones will get a feel for drawing these shapes by tracing them and also learning about the number of sides the shapes have.
Sharkie Shapeater: Don’t be surprised if you are tempted to try this activity yourself. Simply tilt and help find Sharkie find a matching shape. Sharkie is a rather friendly shark who will gladly teach your little one his/her shapes.
Frog Jump: Frogs love lily pads, but this activity shows frogs jumping from one geometric shaped leaf to another. Kids will have to match the raft’s shape to the leaves. Once they get they get a match, they will love watching the frog leap and land on that leaf.
Match Mission: As the name indicates, kids will have to match the shape with the correct object in a series. There is an interesting array of objects that your child will easily recognize and match with the geometric shape that’s displayed on screen.
Munkee Munch: Kids will love dragging and placing food on the monkey’s plate. If it’s a triangle, then kids will have to choose a triangular piece of cake and place it on the monkey’s plate. A fun way to know that shapes can be found in our everyday lives. There are round cherries, rectangular pieces of pastry and interesting an assortment of objects that will keep your child engrossed in the activity.
Shibley Smiles Opinions:
Price: The price of Geometry Mathomatix is Free. Personally I would prefer to pay .99 to have an ad free game. The ads sometimes cover the game and throw it off a little. Not to mention I won’t let my daughter play games with ads for fear of an accidental click. However it is my understanding they are coming out with the paid version.
Quality: FunFlay always has excellent quality when it comes to their applications the graphics are great and the lesson are simple but repetitive so the lesson is reinforced in the child’s mind.
Age Recommendation: Our recommendations for ages 3-4. The game was a little to young for my daughter but is perfect for any child learning their shapes, the game really reinforces shapes.We recommend spending the extra money to get the game without the ads.
