Cute and clever way to easily learn the states

This is a great application for learning the states! The colors and animations work really well for kids. It's the kind of app that can be played over and over. It's a perfect use of the iPad's size and touch - you just want to start dragging the states around! I know I learned a thing or two from it!

I like it BUT

I like it and my kids like but, but every time they play it, even at different levels, there are certain states that are stuck and can't be moved, so my kids can never finish the map. Very disappointed.

Great and inexpensive app

This app is fun.....really well done. It is basically a puzzle map. The colors are very bright, my daughter who is 3 years old loves playing with this game many, many, many times a day (she already knew all the states and had played with other puzzle maps before I got this one for her ). It has two levels of difficulty.......level 1 lets you see the limits in between the states so matching the shape of the state in the correct spot is easy. Level 2 doesn't let you see the limits in between so the child has to work just a little bit harder to find the correct spot, but not to hard because when the shape is positioned somewhere near/close the right spot it will automatically attach to it, so that's a huge help for a child. Another thing is the cool way the states fall and bounce when you shake the ipad (after all the states have been positioned correctly). And when you don't position a piece correctly it makes a silly sound while the shape falls on the bottom of the screen. As I said this app it is really well done and very inexpensive......wich is unusual.
