Can an iPhone Game Make Kids Smarter? Studies Show Puzzles Can.

[MobilePRwire.com] Toronto, Canada -  Researchers from the University of Chicago have found that children who play puzzle games regularly will perform better in spatial intelligence tests than children who do not. One app developer wants to take advantage of this by creating engaging and illustrative puzzle games for kids.


Psychologist Susan Levine and colleagues recently conducted a study that found 2-4 year-old children, who play with puzzles, have better spatial skills when assessed at 4 1/2 years of age. “The children who played with puzzles performed better than those who did not on tasks that assessed their ability to rotate and translate shapes," said Levine, a leading expert on mathematics development in young children.”. Spatial abilities are directly linked to math abilities.

With devices like iPads and iPhones quickly becoming popular and available in homes and offices, the potential for new educational training games is interesting. Children seem to have a natural inclination for touch interfaces, and parents love letting their kids play and learn on their mobile devices.
One mobile developer, named “Fast Hatch Apps”, wants to see if mobile games can help kids learn while having fun. They’ve recently released a puzzle game called “Jungle Puzzles for Kids”, a game where kids put together pieces of lush jungle scenery. The game features 15 beautifully illustrated puzzles of animals like tigers, pandas, geckos, exotic birds, piranhas, and more. The app is free to download and gives away the first 4 puzzles for free. The remaining puzzles can be unlocked for only $1.99, a great deal compared to many other apps on the market.

Jungle Puzzles for Kids is:
• Wonderful for children aged 0 – 6
• Has beautiful animal illustrations of tigers, pandas, lizards, and more.
• Easy to use and play
• Develops your kids spatial intelligence
