Editors’ Notes

An utterly charming way to introduce young kids to music and animation, Loopimal is simple and powerful in a way that almost defies description. Kids arrange and rearrange tiles in sequences underneath a cute polar bear, octopus, and the like, triggering a series of musical tones mirrored by adorable dances from the animal gang. There are no goals and no consequences—just a safe place to learn, play, and laugh.

That Yatatoy app is Brilliaaaaaant

This app is beautifully designed and easy to use. At first it mesmerised my son but he couldn't quite get to grips with the controls, so I set up the loops for him to watch. Having a combination of an animation and music sequencer is great fun. My 1 year olds has now picked up how to use the interface after a few days and loves using it.

Fantastic for musical technology but no recording

I bought this to experiment with and possibly use with primary school pupils. It is a fantastic tool for musical technology with lots of room to discuss beat, rhythm and melody as well as coding and patterns. It also allows children to work together to create their own “orchestra” in pairs or groups of four. My only gripe with this app is the lack of a recording button or even any sort of memory feature. Should a child close the app, even for a second, all is lost. This could easily lead to tears in a classroom. I know at least one pupil will accidentally exit the app.
