5 Games for Smart Children aged 4-7 years + Numbers and Counting from 1-10 in 9 languages
Do you or your children love logic puzzles? Are you looking for kids’ games that are easy to learn but challenge your brain; games that you can enjoy together with a youngster, that siblings can play together or your little ones can play safely on their own? Logic Playground includes 6 such games, all with a cute ocean theme and 9 different language options!
As they enjoy Logic Playground children will be:
• learning classic childhood games we all recognize
• developing their problem solving skills
• introduced to games that involve strategy and logic
• working on visual scanning and discernment
• developing matching and memory skills
• reinforcing their knowledge of numbers from 1 to 10
• and most importantly, having fun!
The 6 different games in the app are:
• Tic Tac Toe or Noughts and Crosses. An ideal first game for young children as they learn the concepts of turn-taking and good sportsmanship.
• 4 in a row. Simple but strategic. Like all the 2-player games in Logic Playground this one can either be played with a friend or played solo against the iDevice.
• Shell game. Also known as Thimblerig - as the iDevice shuffles the shells, can you keep your eye on the one that contains the pearl?
• Numbers. Three mini-games: matching numbers to dice faces, counting sea stars and practice writing numbers.
• Mills or Nine Men’s Morris. Older kids (and adults) will love playing this game from the Roman Empire that’s easy to learn but challenging to win.
• Color Code. A version of the board game Mastermind, this single-player code-breaking game uses fishes in bowls and has two levels of difficulty.
This app was developed by me together with my children, incorporating feedback from parents and educators. It has been awarded 5/5 stars by kinderappgarten.de, iphonekinderapps and bestappsforkids.com who said:
“Awesome app, awesome price! A number of our favorite childhood games packed into one app. Fantastic parental control features to boot!”
And you don’t have to worry about your children playing independently with my apps. You can set a timer which will limit how long your child can play the games and because I take privacy and online safety very seriously my apps include:
• no links to websites outside the app
• no ads
• no data collection or tracking
• no social media sharing

Ratings and Reviews
fun games for the very young AND their adults!
As a parent, I give a standing ovation to any app that allows me to set a timer that will automatically shut down the app when the time is up. Well done, app developer! Playground 2 has a selection of games that will appeal to a young child all the way up to adults (no need to stop with older children!) who enjoy strategy. My son, age nine, loves board games that employ strategy, and he really enjoyed the "Mills" game, as well as "Mastermind." There are games familiar to Americans (we all played Connect Four when we were kids) and novel ones (it's the first time I've played a game like Mills). Lots of bang for buck, here.
Logic games with a "parent timer"
I really enjoyed the variety of games that were available on this app such as tic tac toe and connect four. My kids enjoyed using their thinking skills with the shell and master mind games. I found the mill game to be very confusing to explain to my kids. The best part of the app was being able to set a timer within the settings for the amount of time my kids could play the app. Overall, I believe this app has a lot of options for the price.
A lot of fun
This is a very entertaining app that includes familiar games like Connect Four and Tic tac toe as well as more challenging games like Mills and Mastermind. The look of the app is fun and clean with settings available with a delay so only adults should be accessing them. I would get rid of the countdown with a smiley face that displays when you access the settings. Instead, I would just have the phrase "hold for 3 seconds" flash once. The built in timer to determine how long your kid can play and the different language options are nice touches to the app.
