[Sponsored] Zap Zap Kindergarten Math will give your kids a pre-school math boost on mobile
We’d like to thank our sponsor for this week, Zap Zap Kindergarten Math.
It’s not always easy to tear your kids away from their tablets and make them do something edifying. Thankfully, Zap Zap Kindergarten Math relieves you of this task by turning mathematics into a fun touchscreen video game. Win win!
Aimed at children 3-6 years old, the app makes math fun by ‘gamifying’ it, turning simple mathematics problems into little challenges so that your pre-schooler can learn and play at the same time.
There are more than two dozen mini-games, split across three categories: Numbers, Shapes and Measurements, and Add and Subtract. According to the developer the difficulty of these puzzles is adaptive too, so kids of any ability can be both encouraged and challenged.

Zoombinis Review - "edutainment at it's most adorable"- Touch Arcade
Zoombinis is a port from days of old and it’s ticking all kinds of memories for some. Touch Arcade notes:
In terms of its visual style, Zoombinis holds up rather well on paper, as the characters are all full of life and of course, timelessly cute. However, much like the gameplay, the animations are severely dated, and not even this mobile re-release can make them shine. Even all of the screenshots I’ve taken, despite their high resolution, look washed out and like a relic of the past.
If you have a child or an open mind for a edutainment, Zoombinis is worth checking out — just know that time doesn’t heal all wounds.
