Kids Learning Puzzles: The Family Handyman - Tangram Building Blocks Make Your Brain Pop for iOS

By Swipea Kids Apps Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Apr 14, 2013

A tangram puzzle requires children to move and rotate sharp angled geometric shapes into a specific configuration to match a picture provided. Swipea has created a series of apps that makes these puzzles easier and more accessible for kids, perfect for a young child eager to use your iPad. In the Swipea Tangram Puzzles for Kids: Handy Tools edition (one of more than a dozen variations of the same free app), children will use those shapes to create household tools.

The concept of the game is very simple. Children are given a collection of rectangular and triangular shapes and must rotate and maneuver them into a finished picture that illustrates the image presented by the game. Rotating and moving pieces is made exceptionally easy and the images are color coded to make it even easier to match them up. The major issue we found with the app is the sometimes frustrating interface. Most icons are represented by tangram tiles, which aren't always easy to understand. Additionally, the free app only comes with a limited number of puzzles as all of Swipea's tangram apps require a paid upgrade for more puzzles. Still, if your child enjoys tangram, there are enough of these to keep them busy for some time.

If your child is eager to use your iPad and you want to ensure they are being intellectually stimulated, consider downloading Swipea Tangram Puzzles. The Handy Tools edition is perfect for any budding little builders, but there are many other variations as well, including transportation, animals, portraits, and housewares. Therefore, you're sure to find a version that matches your child's interests.
