The new Duckie Deck app is a collection of six friendly and safe games targeted for kids aged 2-5 years.
The market has many good games teaching math and writing. However, we have created something completely different.
Our preschool games teach important life values, solve the most common childhood problems, and support the development of kids’ creativity.
These six brand new games will:
- help get used to the darkness
- teach how to take care of pets
- introduce picky eaters to different fruits and vegetables
- remind to keep your house tidy
- exercise imagination
Awesome graphics, colorful characters, and funny sounds make this a child friendly user interface. Our design ensures kids learn through use of this app and are able to play the games independently. Our goal is for children to have fun while learning. Most importantly, this application is designed to be completely safe and protect kids. It has no any additional payments or advertising.
Duckie deck is a magical play thing, like all good digital toys should be. The child’s imagination and brain is fully engaged, the monsters are friendly, the fruit is ripe for the picking and the animals are hungry. A big #fourlittletesters thumbs up!
All the testers huddled round the iPad as the cute music started, P3 was in control and quickly scrolled up and down the initial menu screen intrigued with what all the pictures were and wondering what fun was to be found behind each one.
First up was the Zoo, both P3 and F5 loved this games, but seemed to have a little trouble agreeing on what animal they wanted to match, once they both settled on the same character they quickly worked together to find the pieces. the animals made cute noises when you matched a a body piece that was correct.
P3 opted for the strawberries next and enjoyed picking and munching the fruit. F5 especially liked the monsters in the dark, and their funny noises, and only wished there were more, they both laughed P3 played the rest of the games and really liked feeding all the animals in the zoo and making things appear out of the magic hat.
Young children will loose themselves in this colourful deck of games and play things. A really great #kidsapp and one I can see on every parents iPad, perfect for those rainy days and long waits.
