What I liked As always Wubbzy's Puzzles is another amazing addition to the app collection. With 12 different puzzles to choose from and three different difficulties it makes this appealing to use. The easy puzzles contains six pieces. The medium puzzle contains 9 pieces and the hard puzzle contains twenty pieces. This allows children at all learning levels access to play this app with success. I love that the puzzles are very bright images that children can relate back to the show. This is great for having children use their language as well as to use their fine motor skills to put the puzzles together.


Improvements What I would like to see in a future version:
- Change the safety setting. Children figured out how to get around them. They know the year contains 4 numbers and started typing numbers and got through. If you can make it maybe 3 second hold and then the year pop up question it might stop children for going into settings.
- Addition of more puzzles in the future.
- Put other app advertisement inside parent section instead of on opening screen.


General review I really enjoyed utilizing Wubbzy's Puzzles with children. It also allows children not to become frustrated with a great design of clues and support inside the app. The fact that is free is a wonderful feature for parents and educators. The mini story puzzle reward at the end of each puzzle is a wonderful part of the app. I love the easy way that it helps children work on their problem solving skills. Overall, I think this is a wonderful app.

What I liked This is an excellent introduction to Wubbzy apps and a great value as a free app. There are plenty of puzzles to solve and they all have three difficulty levels. Putting the story as a reward for solving the puzzles is a good reward system. I like the parent section and the free educational downloads. The child lock preventing children from accessing outbound links in this app and all Cupcake Digital apps is my favorite of all of them I have seen.


Improvements I would like see a setting that allows the removal of the background from the puzzles so they can be made more challenging for advanced puzzle players. It seems excessive to put an ad on each page for the full version, it would be better either on the main page or at the end. The picture that has the sparkles on the main page, which is a link to more apps, seems like it would be better without the sparkles that entice children into an area they can't access without help. It might be worthwhile to provide a game or video to show a preview of what is available in the paid Wubbzy apps.


General review My daughter is really starting to enjoy more difficult puzzles and this Wubbzy app provides some really good ones. There are multiple difficulty settings for each puzzle so you can ease into more advanced puzzles. The child lock is great and there is a download section in the parent's area with lots of free educational activities that meet the common core standards. Nice app but I would prefer not to see an ad for the full version on each page.

What I liked This is another great application from Cupcake! This application has many different difficulties and puzzle options. It is fun for children of all ages! It allows them to work on their spacial skills and problem solving skills while still having fun.


Improvements The way that I would suggest improving this application is with even harder difficulties and even more puzzles. It is great in how it has so many options but I would have a difficulty where the puzzle does not appear in the background. Overall still a great application.

What I liked I like how the Puzzles are easy, medium and large, which fits perfectly with my small, medium and bigger children. :-). I also like how you could see the pictures underneath the puzzle pieces, which helped my children know where they should go. The sound effects are a nice low volume, and not annoying at all, which is very welcome in a children's app! The interactive elements on the scenes after you do the puzzles kept my children busy for quite a while.


Improvements Most importantly, I really dislike it when apps have a pop up immediately that says "[Wubbzy] would like to send you push notifications". Two out of my three children can't read. Therefore, more often than not, they press okay, and then I get notifications when I don't want them. Please take this off in a future version. Also, I realize that you're trying to sell your other apps by having a pop up at the top of the screen after they finished the puzzles, but it's kind of big and in the way.


General review This is a great puzzle app for young children, and there are easy, medium and harder options available, which is nice for a family with multiple children. After the puzzles are done, the scenes kind of come to life, and there are many interactive elements on the page that help keep your child busy having fun. Well done!

What I liked I love that there are three different difficulty levels for each puzzle. This allows the app to appeal to children at differing abilities. I love the colorful pictures in the puzzles. This would be very appealing to the young children playing this app.


Improvements The large pop up to purchase the full version of the app after completion of the puzzle covers the puzzle. I understand trying to get people to purchase the full version but the size and location of the pop up would be very annoying to a young child completing the puzzles.


General review This is another great app with Wubbzy. I loved the interaction on the puzzles which would be very entertaining to young children. The variety of puzzles is a great asset with this app. The reading of the sentences upon completion is another asset of this app.

What I liked The folks at Cupcake Digital have created an engaging multi-level puzzle app for Wubbzy fans. This is a fun app; colorful and engaging for kids of varying motor abilities! Making problem solving fun, it provided hours of play; working on motor skills and problem solving, or just plain fun. Twelve unique puzzles with three levels of difficulties, enough to keep interest to come back for more! Additionally, on the iPad, the screen is large enough that kids with disabilities have good access to accomplish drags successfully.


Improvements This is a free app, so I am generally very pleased with the fun and engaging offerings. I wish all the passcode protected areas (more apps, for parents, and options buttons were hidden under a singular button to reduce areas to distract kids. Another option could be removing the background visual cues to add another layer of difficulty. All in all, though, the app is solid as it is.


General review This is a fun app; colorful and engaging for kids of varying abilities! Twelve puzzles with 3 levels of difficulty. Best, on the iPad, the screen is large enough that kids with disabilities have good access to drag successfully. I do wish all the passcode protected areas (more apps, for parents, and options buttons) were hidden under a singular button to reduce areas to distract kids. All in all, the app is solid value free app.

What I liked I love how colorful and bright this app is. I like that is has various levels of difficulty. The sparkling parts to helps kids know where to touch next is a nice touch. I like the feature of having to put in your birth year to access the parent section and additional apps. I will say that my 4 and 7 year old both loved playing this game!


Improvements I would like to see an option to take away to pictures for the puzzle pieces just to add an additional level of difficulty. I would also like to see less promotion for the full versions of apps. At times these promotions/advertisements got in the way of play. Also I wasn't sure what to do after I completed the puzzle and all of the little activities afterwards, (of course my boys taught me how to go back)


General review This is a cute puzzle app featuring Wubzy. It has various levels of play and lots of cues to help kids who might need them. At times the promotions for the full version of various parts did get in the way of play. There are parent features that require you to put in your birth year prior to accessing which is a nice touch. My 4 and 7 year old boys loved playing this game!

What I liked I love puzzle apps, and this one hits the nail on the head. I appreciate the easy, medium, and hard level options for every puzzle.
I love that each completed puzzle has a little story to go with it and the interactive characters are great.
My favorite part though is that the ads and parent area are all protected. I don't have to worry about my child accidentally clicking an ad!


Improvements I'd love to be able to scroll to the next puzzle on the same level without backing out. Just a minor inconvenience, but when I'm letting my 2 year old play he can scroll from one puzzle to the next, but if he had to back out he wouldn't choose the correct level again.
You might also consider an option where the line guides on the puzzles could be removed. That would be particularly helpful on the hard level.


General review Great puzzle app! I love the different difficulty levels and the short stories after a puzzle is completed. I appreciate that ads and the parent area are protected with an age verification.
The puzzles are perfect for all 3 of my kids - 2, 4, and 7 - and we love Wubbzy!
