Part of the life with children is to live through all the messiness. The toys are all around the house, you can never find what is where. Isn’t it nice to have the kids clean up and tidy up the room themselves? It’s always worth a try. Now you can have some help from this free app called TidyUp.
TidyUp is a puzzle game for toddlers and preschoolers. It teaches kids that every object, toy, book, clothes, … belongs to a place, and each object needs be back to its place after being used.
The app includes 4 room settings, and 2 of them are free: Living room and Kitchen. When kids start the app, they will see a house. The rooms with lights are the ones they can enter. Tapping on one of rooms will lead them to that messy room. Kids will hear “Toby’s room is a big mess. Will you help him clean up?” Now kids’ job is to pick up those objects on the floor and put them to the right place.
When kids put an object into the right place, they will hear positive messages like “Right, you put teddy bear in the box”. If kids put the object in the wrong place, the app will say something like “I am Yogurt, where would you put me?” Once kids find the right spot for the object, they will hear “Right, Yogurt goes in the fridge.” When kids clean up the whole room, they will hear praise like “You did a great job. Mommy will be very happy.”
There are 8 jigsaw puzzles in the app that can be accessed from the main screen. The puzzles are of different difficulty levels to meet the needs of different children.
It is a very child friendly app teaching kids important life skills. The voice is gentle and friendly, and always very positive. It is safe for young children to explore on their own.
Two rooms are free, and there are two more rooms available via In-App Purchase. But the two rooms are plenty for kids to play and learn the concept.
TidyUp is available on iPad. It is Free on App Store with In-App Purchase options.
