Night & Day Studios – $1.99
What is Quibble Kids? One way to put it would be, it’s the matching game for the 21st century. Sure, practically anyone has some form of a matching game, either in actual physical board game form, where you’ve already lost half the pieces, or you might already have a matching game on your smart phone. Either way, if you’re a parent, you probably have a matching game somewhere. Problem with these? they don’t tend to hold the attention of this generation’s kids that long, its too repetitive with no real payoff.
Now what Night & Day Studios, the people behind the Peekaboo series of apps, have done is create a new type of matching game. One with rotating cubes, themes, and scoring. Adding a bit of depth and freshness to the concept.
Quibble Kids features:
- 50 puzzle sets with over 200 images for the original picture match game
- Intuitive interface for young kids to easily master
- Fun music for each puzzle
- Score keeping to chart your child’s progress
- Access to additional puzzle packs for kids between the ages 2 and 12
- Each additional puzzle pack is available for only 99 cents
Something I really enjoy with Quibble Kids, beyond the fact that it keeps my son’s attention better then most apps lately, is that it challenges him. Using the 3 dimensional cubes that you rotate, and having him match pictures that fall into a specific theme or category like bugs or houses rather then just matching the same picture helps his thinking and how he makes connections to things. It fits perfectly into what I’ve wanted to find for him lately in terms of entertainment and keeping him challenged.
Right out the door Quibble Kids proved that it was going to be good entertainment for my 4 year old son, and be able to keep his attention. When we first started the app, I had to show him how to play, help get him to realize how he was turning the cubes and how he was matching pictures that belong together rather then matching actual pictures. So it wasn’t like other apps where I could start it and hand it to him, I actually had to play it with him a few times for him to understand, which, being able to do that and then hand it over and let him run with it, was nice and allowed me to have a since of pride in that he was able to take what we did together and do it himself. Plus once he understood the concept and realized he got scored, it was on, and he was all about it!
Quibble Kids is a good for of entertainment and is able to keep kids engaged. Having 50 different puzzle sets, along with options of expanding the game with in app purchases ensures that this is one of those special apps that they won’t get burnt out on quick. Plus its one of those fun apps you can play with your kids! Night & Day Studios has another home run on their hands.
