Mobo Kids Puzzle World by Mobo Kids is a universal app for iOS and Android that lets your kids explore the world using only their fingertips. Mobo Kids is a Polish app designer . Mobo Kids Puzzle World is free with a one time in-app purchases of $1.99. The app has children engaged in a variety of ways using bright colors and animation to encourage them to complete tasks. There is also a soundtrack to the app as well as the various sounds that are played when tasks are completed. The app reminded me of using an atlas with various countries you could fly to.
When the Mobo Kids Puzzle World opens, your child is an an airplane and they fly to different countries. once you arrive to the destination country, you are presented with puzzle pieces which you drag and drop match up on the screen. As you correctly place the puzzle piece a sound and typically an animation are played. Once you successfully place the piece, you then are moved to another spot in the same country for another puzzle piece. For example in Canada, puzzle pieces include a lighthouse, a beaver and a piece of wood being chopped. The items shown are local landmarks or things that a country is famous for. There are approximately seven pieces per country. When the country is completed, the national anthem plays and you can fly to your next destination. The app is designed for preschool aged children through early elementary school. Skills practiced within the app include shapes, colors, problem solving, listening and learning about different countries.
Mobo Kids Puzzle World is a fun and educational game. I enjoyed playing Mobo Kids Puzzle World with my preschooler and while he placed the pieces I described the items like a Double-Decker bus, Big Ben, rainbows in the UK or a hot air balloon and cheese in France. TMobo Kids Puzzle World is bright, colorful and engaging for kids. Each scene includes three different pieces one of which matches the shape in the background. Puzzle pieces are large, easy to drag with little fingers and match up. My son had limited frustration with Mobo Kids Puzzle World– only a few times when he wanted to pick what he thought should go instead of what the actual match was. As a parent, I liked that it was educational and included some basic geography, flags, famous sights in a specific country. My son especially liked being able to choose which country he would fly to – and then telling me about what he saw. For example, if he struggled with a piece I would tell him to find a piece which had specific colors to make it easier for him to find. His favorite puzzle pieces were cars – I think that’s because they drove and he loves all things that move.
In terms of enhancements, Mobo Kids Puzzle World does not have any language in it. That means that the different landmarks/puzzle pieces, country name and anthem are not spoken aloud. For children who may not be able to read this is something that the developers should consider changing in the future. Another option would be to allow parents to record the names of the landmarks or country name for kids as they play. My son also wanted to go back and tap the completed country – but after you fly away from the country it resets and you have to fill it in again. Another fun enhancement might be a passport that is stamped after you visit each country to signal that you have completed it.
Overall, Mobo Kids Puzzle World is a fun way to introduce kids to world geography at a young age. The bright interactive colors, puzzle matching and sounds keep them engaged and learning within the app and wanting to play more. There is no advertising contained within the app except for parental gated links to the developers other apps. The app is free with a $1.99 in-app purchase for the entire app. Currently, the country of France is free.
