It’s no secret that I’m a fan of 77SPARX Studio and their great educational apps, such as Puzzingo Puzzles. Any chance you have to make learning fun and natural for children is a golden opportunity, and Puzzingo Puzzles is an app that does just that! Inspired by classic real-world wooden puzzles, this app allows children to play over 100 different learning puzzles. The puzzles take place across a variety of fun scenes, where each puzzle piece is labeled with a vocabulary word that is read out loud. Once the puzzle is completed, the child is rewarded with a mini-game that brings the scene to life!
Puzzingo has five different language settings: UK and US English, Spanish, Chinese and Japanese. This allows your child to not only build their native vocabulary, but also begin to learn a second language at the same time. Personally, I put the app on the Spanish setting and enjoyed learning a few words myself! Since you’re immersed in the language, it’s an intuitive way to figure out what words mean as you pick up the sound and spelling.
The app has been designed to be user-friendly for children under 5 years old, catching children at a perfect age to pick up a second language! My two year old niece, Juniper, loves the games that 77SPARX Studio makes – I let her play with them on my phone over Thanksgiving, and she loved being able to poke at the screen and interact with all the different moving parts! Puzzingo Puzzles helps with fine motor skills, spatial recognition, and matching/tactile skills; it has also been carefully tested to be accessible to children with special needs. The app has won several awards, being named one of Dr. Toy’s 10 Best Children’s products and getting a 5 out of 5 rating from Apps for Homeschooling.
Each puzzle has a fun theme with scenes featuring things such as dinosaurs, space and pets. They’ve also released brand new puzzle packs for the 2017 holiday season including a “Toys” puzzle pack; a “Trucks” puzzle pack that has fire trucks, construction trucks, snow trucks, monster trucks and more; plus a “Classics Puzzle Pack” that includes some of the most popular puzzles from their archives, featuring bugs, steam trains and jets. With so many fun ways to keep your child engaged, it’s no surprise that Puzzingo Puzzles has been downloaded over 8 million times, with over 1 billion puzzles played!
