Keep the kids quiet this holiday season with a festive-themed, musical version of the classical game. Almost a million children have already enjoyed its friendly themes, bright illustrations, and encouraging vocal cues. Newly available for the Windows Phone, this app features 40 simple connect-the-dot puzzles and promises to keep your little one enthralled.
Kids genuinely love join-the-dots puzzles and this app taps into that appetite by presenting a series of puzzles that each consist of the challenge of connecting numbers and letters in sequence. When children succeed in connecting all of the dots, the outline is delightfully transformed into a colorful graphic. It might be a tree, a snow globe or a gingerbread man. Preschoolers are surprised and filled with wonder to see the creatures and objects they have created "come to life".
Choosing the play button immediately begins a connect-the-dot adventure. With a preschool-friendly interface, the app is simple enough for your child to play without any help. The dots may be customized to display upper or lower case alphabet letters, and odd or even numbers. The child can connect the dots by either finger-drag drawing or single tapping from dot-to-dot. As he or she progresses, the next dot lights up. This hint command may be controlled to occur immediately or after the screen has been idle for three seconds.
When audio mode is selected, a pleasing narrator guides your preschooler through the activity, naming each letter or number he touches. The narrator also gives your budding genius an upbeat affirmation before the child moves on to the next puzzle.
The images that appear when your child completes a picture are not always easy to guess. This lends an element of mystery to the activity, developing your preschooler’s imagination and love of learning.
