Wee Kids Stickers by ebooks & Kids is a universal app (iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch). Using a safari theme on the opening screen, it gives the impression of a hunter going in search of treasure.
Have a look:
Each of the four modules focuses on a different category. The first module consists of animals grouped by habitat, including desert, rainforest, deep sea, and jungle. The second module has objects commonly found in the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and garage. The third module features monuments and objects found in faraway lands, such as Germany, the USA, Japan, Spain, the UK, and France. The fourth module is presented as a more advanced game. Each frame shows four highly similar objects; your child must search for minor differences in order to match these objects with their correct outlines. Between each module is a Lightning Round, in which your child has one minute to match as many objects as he can.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked-
Before tablets, children had sticker books that provided stickers they could use to create scenes. The drawback to sticker books was that they were good for only one use. With a sticker app, your children are able to use it again and again. Wee Kids Stickers is great for visual matching. It starts off with simple objects, and gets harder as the modules advance. The instructions are very intuitive and require no reading on the child’s part. An answer is correct when the object “sticks” to the outline; it is incorrect if it bounces back to its original place.
Visual matching is a critical skill for preschoolers to develop. Having good matching
skills allows them to see, recognize and identify shapes, letters, and numbers. This is also a skill that improves with practice.
Overall, Wee Kids Stickers gets a high rating for creativity and an average rating for visual design and user interface. Some of the vocabulary is above the 3-6 year level, which is the target age for this app. In that case, it can also be used as a vocabulary enrichment app. Wee Kids Stickers is one of the few apps available in the App Store that works on visual matching skills, and it does so in a fun and entertaining way.
