Make your own colors! Children love learning that Red and Blue can be mixed to make Purple. Add some Black and it’s a Dark Purple!

Other apps only let your children choose a crayon color. Color mixing allows them to explore their creativity by learning to mix colors and then paint “masterpieces” with them.

Using 5 basic paint colors on the palette, a child can mix them to make any color they imagine, then use the saved colors to paint!

The kid friendly interface was designed by parents with a lot of input and testing from preschoolers. So it’s easy to use.

The games contain an extraordinary wealth of content: 9 feature games and more to come, 100 puzzles, 50+ hand-painted tracing game illustrations, 8 farm-themed mini-games and more. Injini is ideally suited for early intervention - it brings fun to learning and at the same time practices children’s fine motor and language skills, understanding of cause and effect, spatial awareness, memory and visual processing.

Inspired by children with special needs, Injini's game developers worked for two years with parents, early childhood educators, and occupational, speech, and cognitive experts to create superior play-based learning experiences that help young children reach developmental milestones. The games were designed for and tested with children with autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and various developmental delays, as well as typically developing preschoolers - they love it too!

## top #4 in Education category in US! ##

Your child will love to do math tasks - because this is a game - complete with levels, goals, nice graphics and music. Your child can practice all the elementary math operations, and you, as a parent, can set what task to practice. 

>> We have also version for iPad, look for Bubbling Math on iPad App Store
Highlights: 
* 9 different graphic levels with nice music and sounds - will make it difficult for you to stop your child from solving math tasks 
* Task configuration - easy, but powerful - to help you set what your child will practice - based on his age and skill 
* Parents section - with detailed results - you will know how many tasks your child has finished and you can even view which tasks your child finished incorrectly 
* We are motivating - not only to learn, but motivating to continue with additional tasks, because when each new level is unlocked, your child can also get 3 cups for every level (Bronze, Silver, Gold) - and it is not easy to get a Gold cup! 

We have developed this game with the help of children and teachers. Children have helped us make it fun, and teachers have ensured that it is right from an education point of view. 

3 easy steps to use: 
1. Start app and select the types of tasks that your child will practice 
2. Now you can leave your child alone - most children know exactly what they should do :-) Or you can just watch so you can see your child enjoying - yes, believe me - math tasks 
3. After your child has finished, you can go through the incorrect answers with your child, or just quickly look at the type of task that is causing the biggest problem 

Tips: 
- you can reset game to a default state. This is useful should you want to try the game before you give it to your child, or if you want to let your child start again (possibly at a different speed) 
- you can set the game speed in the Parents' section 

And we are leaving the best until the end – because this is just the beginning. We are preparing new levels, new challenges and new game types. 

What we do love is your feedback. Honestly, we do not know the tastes of all the parents and children worldwide, so if you have any ideas or requests for additional features, we will be only too pleased to incorporate them in the next versions. Please write to us at support@tappytaps.com. We are happy, when our customers are happy. 

Yours, 

Jindrich & Jan from TappyTaps

Updated Oct 21, 2011
Price $2.99
Download iTunes app link Simple States

Simple States is a fun and engaging educational app, designed to make learning U.S. geography fun for all ages.

Simple States includes six mini games that help students learn the U.S. states and capitals and other geo facts while having fun. An interactive study area makes learning state names, capitals, nicknames, flowers, trees, and birds a breeze. Simple States can even pronounce state names in American English.

The “Smart Mode” feature intuitively monitors the student’s progress and automatically adjusts game play according to each student’s proficiency. As students demonstrate knowledge of particular states and capitals, Simple States modifies itself to present fewer questions relating to the learned material and more questions about material yet to be learned. This feature decreases player frustration and uses a proven scaffolding approach to learning; enabling students to learn at their own pace and retain newly acquired knowledge.
