Maya the Bee is a familiar character in many parts of the world, thanks to her long-running TV show. Maya the Bee: Flower Party brings the show’s magic to your tablet in the form of age appropriate activities designed to entertain and delight your child. I was amazed by the quality of the graphics and the animations, which are among the best I’ve seen. This is a sure-fire Top Pick for Fun Educational Apps.Fun Educational Apps TOP PICKS

What Fun Educational Apps Liked-
The activities in Maya the Bee: Flower Party have been chosen to be age appropriate and engaging. I thought the most successful ones were hide and seek and music band. The shape tracing activity was the least successful in my opinion; the tracing line did not always follow the child’s finger, resulting in many requests to “Try a little harder.”
Some apps are visually appealing because of their artwork; others provide entertaining animation. Maya the Bee: Flower Party not only succeeds in both of these two areas, it exceeds expectations. I would recommend all developers check out the Maya app to see the level of excellence that can be achieved. Kudos to this design team for creating an app that clearly earns a Top Pick from Fun Educational Apps. I hope there will be other Maya apps to follow.
Maya the Bee: Flower Party is available for downlaod via the iTunes App Store - iOS Universal and soon on Google Play for Android Devices.
