App Description

From the creators of the hit, award winning, iPad app Drawing Pad!
ShapeBuilder educates & entertains your little one with easy to move shapes that snap into place on top of silhouette puzzles. Each puzzle has 5 to 10 pieces & after positioning all of the pieces, the real image is revealed along with a professional voice recording of the word spoken by a licensed speech therapist that specializes in early child development. ShapeBuilder encourages cognitive thinking & fine motor skills plus exposes young minds to new music instruments, animals, produce, objects & the alphabet in a fun & engaging format with LOTS of sound effects!

Designed for kids! No menu buttons on the puzzles to get in the way of game play!

Highlights:

Total of 173 puzzles!
30 Music instruments with sound effects
21 Fruits & Vegetables
45 Animals - awesome sound effects!
26 Letters - speech therapist sounds out
each letter in a fun way

"ShapeBuilder earns an edu.Mac.nation daddy score of "A" - Immediately my son was able to locate & move the pieces into position. The audio quality is fantastic, the application is stable, & the variety of puzzle types kept my son engaged & entertained. Together we worked on completing the puzzles & saying out loud what the images were."
