ABOUT BUSY SHAPES Busy Shapes helps children improve their ability to handle simple objects through a series of puzzles, in which they must change simple shapes and place them in proper holes. Along the way, the app responds to each child’s actions with positive guidance and motivation. Plus, the app’s digital exploratory playground regularly refreshes with different objects, which keeps children interested and engaged. INSPIRED BY JEAN PIAGET Busy Shapes is inspired by the pioneering works of famed Swiss scientist and intelligence expert Jean Piaget (1896-1980), who believed that “children are little scientists”, and that a child's thoughts are built through experiences that encourage him or her to engage in the reasoning process. INNOVATIVE, SCALEABLE PLATFORM Busy Shapes’ innovative scaleable platform for evolving experimentation lets children take advantage of the time they spend on touch screens -- so they aren’t just having fun, but learning every second of the way. KID-FRIENDLY DESIGN Busy Shapes features a special “kid-friendly” design that compensates for the fact that when young children hold an iPad or iPhone, they often have a finger touching the screen. “PASSING” SWIPE CONTROL Busy Shapes features “passing” swipe control that is essential for young children's quick hands (i.e. even if a child's finger reaches an object after he or she was already touching the screen, the object is still grasped as intended). POWERFUL ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) Busy Shapes’ powerful AI supports each child’s unique learning journey. For example, the AI tracks the time it takes each child to complete a level, and increases or decreases difficulty accordingly. GUIDED ACCESS To prevent children from exiting the app by pressing the “home” button, Busy Shapes features a customizable Guided Access. This feature also disables selected parts of the screen for safety and protection. REAL-TIME MONITORING Parents can access real-time monitoring and get advice on how to guide their children. They can also track their child’s progress updates via Apple’s Game Center. SEAMLESS INTERACTION Busy Shapes’ seamless interactive game area never blocks or limits children, and lets them freely access shapes. The menu is also neatly hidden away. AUTOMATIC MEMORY Sometimes the best learning is a combination of cognitive exercise and physical play. Busy Shapes’ automatic memory saves a child’s place in any particular game, which makes the app an ideal complement to physical play and for shorter games. MULTIPLE LANGUAGE SUPPORT The app is now available in: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, Greek, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Turkish, Russian, Korean, Indonesian, Malay, Vietnamese, Thai, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese CONNECT WITH US!

    Sound effects when Something Happens (eg color changes, shape goes through): OK. Other sounds missing.
  • Easy and safe

    If you can block access to the home and power buttons on your device, your kids can't get out of the app or access the menu without answering a math question.
  • Fun to watch them learn!

    The first levels were very straightforward and I worried it would be too easy for my now 5-year-old. The increasing difficulty is amazing! I was so impressed by the clever devices and watching him figure out how to do it when I wasn't sure what was next.

    My two-year-old would play Busy Shapes for hours if I let him. I'm impressed with how the game incrementally introduces clever new challenges, and it's fun watching my son work to master each one.

    This kept my 2 year old granddaughter and I busy for 15 minutes straight. We were fully engaged in the problem solving techniques with mindful conversation. It was amazing to watch her "catch on" so quickly.
  • Fantastic Puzzle Game for Young Kids

    I am so impressed with this game - not only does it progress through different puzzles with varying difficulty, but it also teaches shape and color recognition. My son just encountered some levels that required him to mix colors to get the match he needed, so he is now learning that red and yellow make orange, yellow and blue make green, etc. I let him use the iPad on rare occasions, but I would feel good about him using this app daily.
  • GREAT FOR TODDLERS!

    Both of my boys love this app. If it wasn't glitchy I'd give it 5/5. Great for fine motor skills and special relations.
