A zoo educational activity game that is thoughtfully planned for little kids imagination. It is recommended for children three to six years old.

Zoo Explorer helps little kids with:
- Learning activities for preschool kids in a zoo environment
- Matching activities & puzzles- Kids match play objects with their matching sites
- Pretend play. Educational activities prepared for children cognitive skills.
- Learn English words of different food items and other play objects.
- Increase child imagination by decorating the zoo.
- Teaching kids about the zoo environment by playing a game about it.

Let your little child (age 3-6) explore a zoo in a fun to play matching & learning game. We created a clue system that teaches young children about the zoo and its animals by giving them clues on things that happen at a zoo, such as feeding the animals and cleaning up the zoo. While playing, young children will learn new words and expand their English vocabulary. English words are being pronounced as kids play with different objects.

While having fun with Zoo Explorer, children explore the zoo environment, walk around, and see the sights. They can visit the animals and listen to their sounds. They can ride a buggy or walk around with different characters and explore the hidden spots. Zoo Explorer is an educational matching game. Little kids explore and solve events that happen at a zoo. Our zoo matching game provides toddlers and preschoolers with an interactive free play environment. Little kids can experience things freely, with no rules or restrictions that limit a child’s imagination.

Zoo Explorer is a “play mat” environment offering a free exploration of the zoo area with all its sights:

* Walk around the zoo and meet the different animals
* Explore the hidden spots
* Climb the cool tree house!
* Feed the animals
* Buy an ice cream at the ice cream stand
* Walk around or ride in a buggy

We created the game as an open environment so kids could experience things freely, with no rules or restrictions that can limit child imagination in his early years.

Zoo Explorer was developed with the help of educational psychologists.
Each of the game events and elements were created with a consultation of educational psychologists in order to fit the cognitive abilities and motorical skills of young children. The game was created for both individual and shared play.
It can be used by parents, caretakers and even therapists as a tool for preparing a child for preschool or to facilitate communication with a child about his preschool experiences. While playing with a caretaker the child can share experiences and feelings about their own preschool and learn more about how to deal with common everyday situations.
