Shape-O! ABC’s Review (Bellamon)

What It Is

Shape-O! ABC's is a beautiful puzzle app that has a nice assortment of options and even a bit of letter learning and spelling practice built into the play. The first unique thing you'll notice about Shape-O! ABC's is the amount of puzzles in the app. Kids choose from more than 100 puzzle cards to build. Each puzzle picture is broken up into pieces for you to drag and drop back into place. When in the medium and hard levels, you'll notice that building the word becomes part of the puzzle, too. Kids need to place the letters in correct order to spell the name of each picture. While you're working on the puzzle, tap on the rainbow icon to switch between eight color combinations. If you need help, tap on the eye icon and the app will put a puzzle piece into place for you.

There are more ways to customize the app for your child on the settings page. The audio, including individual controls for sound effects, voiceovers, and background music, can be toggled on and off. If you don't want your child to let the eye button solve the puzzles, you can turn off that feature, too. You can also change the difficulty of the puzzles and the word spellings between simple, medium, and hard.

Is It Fun?

This app was clearly designed with kids in mind. It's really colorful and really fun to play. Shape-O! ABC's is an excellent choice for puzzle play on your smart device.
