You might not have heard of IDEO Toy Lab, but the developer has teamed up to help produce a number of popular children’s titles like Elmo Calls, Elmo’s Monster Maker, and others. The company is also behind its own great slate of apps for the younger set including Monster Moves and IDEOko Ballonimals and now IDEOko Spin and Spot Safari.
Tons of fun
Their newest app, IDEOko Spin and Spot Safari is definitely something parents of younger children should take a look at. Designed for ages 5 and under, the app can be played on any iOS device and even the fourth-generation Apple TV.
And the game combines learning the alphabet and some exotic animals.
There's no need to start off with "A" in the fun game. Thanks to the spin wheel, kids can select to start with any letter the choose.
Spin, and then spin again
Kids will spin the wheel until they reveal the special animal. Instead of the old favorites, the app offers some great and unique animals for each letter.
The big reveal
After revealing each animal, kids can hear an interesting fact.
The game looks great on iOS devices and the Apple TV.
IDEOko Spin and Spot Safari is a universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch, all iPad models, and the Apple TV. It costs $2.99.
The game is quickly turning into a hit at my house. My 5-year-old son really enjoyed playing the game on his iPad, but was really intrigued when I played with him on the Apple TV version. The colorful graphics and music are perfect to showcase on the set-top box. Hopefully we’ll see other children’s apps take advantage of the platform.
