Fun Felt Games is a fun and educational set of mini-games we’ve been working on between projects for some time. It’s aimed at pre-school kids aged 5 and under, and was developed with 3 key objectives:
- The app should follow accredited teaching methods, particularly with regards to phonics. We consulted with UK education professionals throughout the development process.
- Due to the target age group of the app, we wanted it to be priced simply at 69p/99c, with absolutely no Ads or In-App Purchases. We want parents to be able to hand over the app to their child without worrying about what they might press.
- We also wanted the price to represent good value for money – hence the inclusion of 3 game-types, each with 3 variations. We could have easily launched these as 3 separate apps, but that just didn’t seem right. The games aren’t particularly technically challenging from a development point of view, but that enabled us to focus on the educational aspect whilst keeping it fun and light-hearted.
Fun Felt Games is a Universal app, so your child can enjoy it on iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad for a single purchase.
If your child plays it please let us know your feedback – we’d love to hear from you, either in the comments below or via an App Store review.
