Tozzle iPhone App is Just Right for Toddlers

Submitted by Mary Davis on 10/03/2010 – 8:43 pmOne Comment

My iPhone has recently become my toddler’s favorite toy. I used to think I would never let such a little kid “play” with my nice smart phone. That was before I realized what a great learning tool I had in my hands and how helpful it can be in occupying my small guy! One of our favorite apps is Tozzle, a puzzle game for the younger kid crowd in which players move individual pieces into their designated spaces.

There are so many things we like about Tozzle. Here’s a quick list:

  • Helps improve shape recognition and motor development
  • 33 different puzzles, with fun sound effects
  • Easy to use – even a toddler can do it!
  • Helps children by displaying an arrow every third try
  • Can be used in English, German, French and Spanish.

This app really is a fun game that teachers toddlers quite a bit. It has helped my son with his alphabet, as it names each letter when he drags it into place. I just wish it would name each picture as he completes it. While the app adds lots of fun and accurate sound effects, it doesn’t name the object upon completion of the puzzle. I think this would be a helpful way to teach name recognition, as it does with the letters. My other complaint? My son likes it so much that it’s hard to get it away from him when his time is up!

Do you allow your toddlers to play with your iPhone? If so, what’s your favorite app?
