Who didn’t love those I Spy books or those Hidden Picture Puzzles in Highlights Magazine when you were growing up? I suppose it isn’t a very well kept secret that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and playing with those I Spy books with my nieces.

I love how this app offers up a different game every time you play which is refreshing when most puzzle apps for young children a fairly repetitive. You solve each hidden picture puzzle and earn puzzle pieces to collect to solve when you collect enough pieces. When you solve the puzzle, you earn badges. For younger players, the hint feature is really helpful. They darken the screen and highlight a circular area when the hidden object is located. As time passes, the circle grows smaller and smaller so that your child can easily find the hidden object. This is really great for avoiding undue frustration when your child gets stumped. I thought that the puzzle that you collect pieces for a pretty tough for a younger player to solve since you have to rotate, slide, and flip pieces. I had to do a little thinking in order to solve it myself.
This app does a really great job of engaging children with interesting and dynamic puzzle play while really helping them with their observational skills. Highly recommended for ages 3 and up! These apps are well worth the paid app price.
