Review: Jukka Askare Game for iPad

During the holidays one of my favorite activities is to play games and read to my 4 year-old son. Even though we spent way to much money on toys he still tends to end up wanting to play games on my iPad 2 tablet. The good news is that after downloading many of the best iPad apps for children we found a really great classic wooden toy from Finland that was just released. It is called Jukka Askare and has been played by Scandanavian children for nearly 85 years.

What gives me joy is to see my 4 year-old enjoying this wonderful unique interactive game. This app is educational also and teaches 3 to 4 year-olds shapes, sizes and geometry as they attempt to fit different shapes into matching holes. The developers have cleverly integrated real-life sounds and graphically pleasing animations in Jukka Askare for iPad. The Jukka Askare app can develop your child’s spatial recognition and eye-hand coordination in this fun iPad app game.

This iPad 2 app emulates a 3-D environment as your child develops fine motor skills moving the colorful pieces around the iPad display with their finger. This game is completely international and does not use language and my son just intuitively knew what this game was about as soon as I tapped on the app and it opened up.
