Animal Circus: Toddler's Seek & Find Activity Book is a tap and find type app developed by Wonderkind Interaktionsmedien GmbH. Perfect for the toddler crowd, this app has hidden animations set in a detailed circus scene
For young children in the toddler range, who are just beginning to manipulate iPods and iPads, tap games like Animal Circus: Toddler's Seek & Find Activity Book are perfect. It is easy for this age group to simply tap items on the screen to get an instantaneous response. This app does a great job of providing a plethora of hidden interactions for kids.
The screen opens to a circus scene complete with animals, clowns, and other circus acts staged in a central area. Tapping on any of the characters, trailers, or animals provides an instant animation and sound. Nearly everything in the scene has an animation. The sneezing man, the elephant slide, and the ball throw game are some of my son's favorites. Several of the items have double animations. Make sure to tap items a few times to see the scope of their animation. Like the other Wonderkind apps, there are three hand-drawn scenes available. The central scene described above is free. In-app purchases provide the Wild Animals and Daredevil Acts scenes for exploration.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked
When my son first started exploring the iPod at 18 months, we had the Wonderkind app My Animals. This latest release has so many more animations and interactions available. The scene is delightfully drawn with superb attention to detail. I love that some of the animations are multi-faceted, having several different reactions to being tapped. Each animation also has cute sounds to go along with them, providing young children with a fun and engaging experience.
Overall, this app is consistent with the quality we've seen from Wonderkind's other apps. Toddlers will enthusiastically tap away at the screen to find all of the animations. Parents will be surprised at just how many interactions they miss the first time through. For parents just exposing their children to iPad use, this app provides the perfect playground.
