Dear parents,

I hope this lite version - even though limited - gives you a good impression of the app and helps with your decision to purchase the full version. Feel free to contact me if you or your kids have any ideas to make this app better or new illustration proposals.

Together with my two children (4 + 2 years) I developed an App that contains their current favorite games. We have tried to make all games as clear and simple as possible. We have also tried to optimize those things we disliked in other games.

Even the most beautiful game becomes boring sometime. The following search for "another game" somewhere on the iPad always was quite nerve-wracking and frustrating for my kids (and me). Fortunately this is past. All games are clearly structured on the title screen so your children can quickly change the game without getting lost in the vastness of the iPad.

Besides my activities as a dad, I work as a freelance illustrator and game developer. Therefore I would be very pleased about your rating (as positive as possible of course) or any feedback. Feel free to contact me if you have suggestions for improvement or your child have any motive wishes for the playground.

Thank you in advance and have fun playing!

Jan Essig
