How can you not love Cookie Monster? Our four year old laughed out loud through this app as Cookie Monster used his signature bad grammar to express various forms of dismay over his lost cookies. Cookie Monster’s Challenge offers a series of brain-building games designed to challenge and engage children ages 3-5 by practicing self-control, focus, memory, following directions and problem solving – skills that are essential for school readiness.
There are 10 mini games in the app. Each game presents an exciting challenge designed to give children the opportunity to practice the key skills mentioned above. While kids play, they move up levels. There are a total of 9 levels. With each level the mini games get more challenging, keeping children engaged and motivated.
At the end of each level, kids earn a cookie. As children progress in the games, they also earn pieces of a giant cookie-making machine. Children can use the machine to decorate and deliver the cookies to the hungry Cookie Monster.
The app can keep track 3 separate profiles so that everyone in the family can progress through the game at their own pace.
PBS and especially Sesame Street are always terrific in our book, this app is just fun. Depends on each child’s development, this is app probably works better with the younger side of the 3-5 year old set. In the end I think the app is fun edu-tainment, something nice for a rainy day distraction or a spot of travel.
Cookie Monster’s Challenge is available on iPad. It is $2.99 on App Store.
