What is it
Kids tangram is an app which encourages children to place the pieces into the correct shape – they will need to use matching skills and some logic. It is like a puzzle game put uses 2D shapes instead of traditional puzzle pieces.
Children are given the correct pieces and the outline of the shape and they have to place hem in the correct places – if they are wrong they have to work this out for themselves.
Once children have completed a tangram they can either move onto the next level or go back to the main menu and choose which they would like to do next.
There are 65 different shapes to choose from (these include categories such as transport and animals.)

What our experts think
A good app with a lot of options for children to choose from. We liked the way in which children could choose to either progress to a harder level or could make their own choices in any order they wanted.
Matching is an important skill which children need to develop and this app does just that – children need to find the appropriate shapes from around the edge of the picture and place them in the correct position.
We liked the fact the children weren’t restricted by the colour choices and could put the colours where ever they chose.
It would be even better if...
We would liked to have seen an area where children could use their own creativity and create their own tangram shapes.
