Fans of PBS Kid's WordWorld will be huge fans of Play Square's app Superhero Sheep. This interactive appisode is both a video and a learning experience. Become a part of the action as Duck joins Sheep as she saves the day.
Play Square interactive apps ask children to become a part of the story by tracing squares around items within the appisode. Superhero Sheep is no different. Viewers join Duck and catapult him into action. Trouble awaits as he loses the S for his nest. Have no fear, Superhero Sheep is here. Players begin by helping Sheep find the S's for her super belt. Then the transformation is complete. Superhero Sheep is on the job and helps Duck get out of his predicament. Duck, enamored with his superhero friend, decides to be her sidekick.
Superhero Sheep travels around WordWorld helping her friends and telling Duck about how she doesn't need any help. With 8 interactive components to the game, players engage in "touchable television" throughout the appisode. From guiding a submarine to collect Frog's K-E-Y to helping Ant plant his S-E-E-D-S, Sheep and Duck help their friends out. Sheep even learns that she can really use a sidekick like
Duck to help her out.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked
My family is a huge fan of WordWorld. I've played other games featuring the WordWorld characters and their letter squishing fun, but this one is completely different. This is truly an interactive episode of the much loved show. I'm feeling way better about my son watching this type of show because of the interactive components. This app is geared toward the aged 2-5 crowd, and therefore focuses on letter recognition, not the spelling of the words. The letters are on the screen and players must simply collect them. I love the letter squishing aspect and the familiar images being created from letters. The quality of the video is excellent. I can definitely say that my son enjoyed these during our holiday travel.
Overall, Superhero Sheep is a great app and a fun way for children to turn a familiar cartoon into an interactive experience. The focus on letters is perfect for young learners just beginning to focus on letter identification and word formation. I'm looking forward to trying out the other WordWorld apps from Play Square.
