Description

Thanks for downloading Farm Blocks! Look for interactive backgrounds, sound effects, and even more forms of physical interaction — all through free future updates!

Many of the experiences and games available to children today involved goal-oriented, structured play. However, unstructured play is critical to a child's social, emotional, and cognitive development. In fact, a study at the University of Washington showed that children who played with building blocks, one of the most basic forms of unstructured play, scored as much as 15% higher on language assessments.

Whether this result is due to diversion from less productive activities, such as television, is unclear. What is clear is the importance of providing children with free-play opportunities. (No doubt, it is even more important for parents and care-givers to join in those opportunities!) Simple toys such as physical blocks should play a role. Farm Blocks provides children with the opportunity to play, to build, and to interact with building blocks anytime and anywhere, even when physical blocks are not an option.

FEATURES:
— Multi-touch manipulation of blocks
— Build in portrait or in landscape mode
— Tap blocks for fun sound effects
— Rusticated farm animal theme

COMING SOON:
– More sound effects
– New forms of physical interaction
– Interactive backgrounds
– Additional blocks (more shapes and animals)
– More block themes, all new apps, made by Tiny Owls.
