6 Educational Animal Games for Toddlers and Children

Are you having trouble wading through the countless apps in the Store aimed at toddlers and preschoolers? If your kids are animal lovers and you’re looking for something both fun and educational, with tons of content and lots of replay value, then with up to 12 games in one app, Playground 1 FREE is for you. It's a free-to-try version of the highly acclaimed Playground 1 - 'Best of' Edition.

The games in Playground 1 are designed to engage children as young as two years old but increase in complexity and difficulty so that children up to the age of six will still find them a challenge. Perfect for siblings to play together or for kids to enjoy with their parents.

This App contains 6 games for FREE:
• FIND IT [ LOGIC & MEMORY ]: See if you can spot all the differences in each of the 5 animal scenes.
• PAIRS [LOGIC & MEMORY ]: This version of the classic matching game starts easy but includes 8 cards.
• PUZZLE [ PUZZLES ]: 1 puzzles with 4 pieces each for the littlest ones and 4 additional puzzles with 8 pieces each for older kids.
• CATCH [ SPATIAL AWARENESS GAME ]: Like ‘whack-a-mole’ you have to tap the animals as they pop up - but make sure you get the right ones!
• REMEMBER [ MUSIC ]: Just like the classic ‘Simon Says’ game, animals sing notes and your child has to repeat them in the same order. 3 Steps only!
• PIANO [ MUSIC ]: Fancy some music? Free play on a keyboard with the notes supplied by cats.

Additional activities are available to purchase. The Full version contains 12 different games for kids and a LOT OF CONTENT. You can unlock the Full Version of this App with one single In-App-Purchase inside a protected parents area.

The 12 games included in the FULL VERSION of Playground 1 are:
• ERASE [ ART ]: Little ones who may not yet have the fine motor skills to draw or color can rub away the silver surface of each picture to discover what’s underneath!
