The fine folks at Night & Day Studios have released their third app in their Peekaboo line of apps for toddlers and preschoolers.  This time, their latest, Peekaboo Forest, features the stunning art of Charley Harper, which separates it from previous Peekaboo iterations, and sets it atop its own pedestal.  Peekaboo Forest doesn’t just take the same equation that equaled success for Peekaboo Barn and Peekaboo Wild, but they evolved it all around.

In the previous apps you had animals hiding behind barn doors or grass, making noise, then appearing once your child touched the screen.  Now you have teases like a leaf moving or a tail wagging, before the animal makes its appearance, the its name being announced, making this interactive app, much more like an actual game of peekaboo.  Not only that, but this version builds upon a foundation wrapped around the seasons, where after every 3-4 animals, you have a littler intermission with music and announcing the next season.  Not only is this a way of teaching the seasons, but it helps break up the repetitive pattern of getting animals appear.  Bug enjoys this part of the game, and dancing with the music just as much as she does seeing the animals, making this addition a great and welcomed one.

However I do feel inclined to point out, the pace and feel of Peekaboo Forest is much more low key then with Peekaboo Barn and Peekaboo Wild.  If I was to suggest to a parent, especially one younger then Bug who is at 21 months, I would suggest starting off with Peekaboo Barn or Wild before moving on to Peekaboo Forest.  Bug loved is (as can be seen by the video below) but I can see where this one might not captivate younger kids like Peekaboo Barn did for her last year.


BOTTOM LINE

Peekaboo Forrest is a fun, education and interactive game that you’d expect from Night & Day Studios, and features the stunning vivid art of Charley Harper.  It is a unique take on the peekaboo app concept and is an universally entertaining app fr any preschooler.  If younger then around 2, I’d suggest Peekaboo Barn or Peekaboo Wild prior then trying out Peekaboo Forest, but don’t question the greatness that this app offers!

Night & Day Studios Releases Peekaboo Forest


downloadThe fine folks behind some of my favorite apps for Bug such as Peekaboo Barn and My Very First App have just had their latest approved and released to the App Store: Peekaboo Forest.

Explore beautiful forest scenes looking for signs of life. If you see something moving, tap on it to find out who it is!
This fun, interactive, and educational game includes Charley Harper’s distinctive drawing style and was inspired by his love of nature and symmetry. With this universal version, the famous Peekaboo series comes to the iPad too. Play it in English or Spanish!
Touch the vividly illustrated forest scenes to see charming animations, learn the names of animals, and hear the real sounds these creatures make in the wild. Younger children will love playing peekaboo with animals, as they learn about cause and effect and familiarize themselves with the names and sounds of animals. Older children can try to guess the animals by clues, work on spelling, and can start to learn about the seasons and the interconnected web of life that is a living forest. Adults will love the graphic, mid-century-modern illustrations by Charley Harper.
This is not a videogame or a TV show; it’s an interactive storybook with exceptionally fine art. When you could really use a safe distraction—in airports, restaurants, and waiting rooms—or you’d like to try something new with your budding little genius, Peekaboo Forest is a great alternative to other media options. It’s educational, handheld, ad-free, and inexpensive.
Peekaboo Forest was designed with preschool age children in mind by the award-winning team of educational media developers at Night & Day Studios, creators of My Very First App. It is the third entry in the beloved toddler app series that began with Peekaboo Barn and Peekaboo Wild. The graphics, sound effects, and narration are all presented at the highest quality. The illustrations were rendered for all iOS 4 devices including the iPad and the iPhone 4’s Retina display.
