Iphone Apps for Kids – Mindshapes Lingo Zoo

The folks at Mindshapes have done it again! They’ve managed to create another great kid’s app that is both educational and fun. Lingo Zoo (available from iTunes for £1.49) is a wonderful way to introduce kids to Spanish!

Kid’s work their way through different areas by completing animal jigsaws. As a reward they then see and hear the animal names in both English and Spanish. There are 7 different areas to explore; Farm, Safari, Jungle, Outback, Garden, Woodland and Underwater. The animations are stunning and my four-year old daughter has been having great fun pronouncing the words in Spanish. It sure beats Dora!

So overall here is what (I) we thought:

Disclosure: In return for this review I received the app for free.
