Sago Mini is a fun series of apps for kids of all ages, including very young kids. The Sago Mini Ocean Swimmer is free right now. We had a good time playing with it. It is a fun app for kids of any age. If you are looking for something on iPad that is fun and safe for young children like preschool age kids, this is an ideal app for them.
It is an open-ended game app. Kids guide the little fish Fin to explore the wonderful ocean. Each yellow dot indicates an active station. Tapping on the dot, kids will see some fun animation. At one spot, a mini band comes out, Fin performs a song with the band for the kids; at another spot, Fin opens a treasure box that’s been sitting there for a long time; moving on, Fin runs into an octopus offering ice creams, one on each of her hands. … There are over 30 animation stations in the app for kids to explore.
Kids love open ended play. They can decide how to play with the app. They can just swim around and see what is in the ocean, they can make a game of how many different fishes they can meet, they can also make a story out of the exploration, some interesting titles could be: open an ice cream store under the ocean, a lost treasure, …
How parents interact with kids while playing?
While kids are exploring the ocean, parents can ask some questions: who do you think is living in the crevice? What do you think Fin wants to go next? Do you think Fin is hungry? How do you think Fin feels when … ?
After kids play with the app for a while, parents can also find some books about ocean and ocean animals to read with kids. Kids may be also interested in drawing their own ocean pictures or writing their own ocean exploration stories.
