Jay O. (translation)

Most games for smartphones and tablets are not made with a younger audience in mind, so today we thought we’d review an app that caters to kids. Read on and find out if Jigsaw Puzzles for Kids will stimulate your child’s imagination, logical thinking, fine motor skills—and just let them have fun!

Features & Use

Tested on: Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Android version: 4.1.2

Jigsaw Puzzles for Kids uses symbols and icons to communicate with the young player, making the game accessible to kids who haven’t yet learned to read.

Pick a small or larger puzzle format; smaller ones are 2x2 or 3x3, larger ones consist of 15, 24 or 50 pieces.

Next, select an illustration – there are currently 18 to choose from – and hit the field to display it. You will be able to make out the puzzle piece outline. The pieces have to be dragged to the edge, and please note that the pieces may have to be turned to face the right way; to do so simply tap on them.

Hit the button on the right to consult the original illustration once more. Fun sound effects and background music can be de/activated via another button, also on the left side of the display. I personally found the repetitive music to be annoying, but kids might not mind this so much.

Bottom line:

There’s not much else to say in regards to Jigsaw Puzzles for Kids. The game doesn’t have many functions or options, but seeing as the game was made for children, this is actually an advantageous feature, seeing as this way the app won’t feel overwhelming. Speaking from experience: I loved puzzles as a kid and would do the same puzzle over and over again without getting bored of it.

The game’s overall look should appeal to younger children.

Screen & Controls

Jigsaw Puzzles for Kids was obviously designed with a younger demographic in mind: all in-game instructions and how-tos can be understand via symbols rather than descriptive texts. The visuals are very much in tune with the kid theme, and the graphics are sharp enough to look good on tablet displays.

A small drawback is that elements have to be placed on the side when the field is too saturated. This didn’t strike us as particularly intuitive.

Speed & Stability

Jigsaw Puzzles for Kids performed well throughout our test runs.

Price/Performance Ratio

Jigsaw Puzzles for Kids costs €1.49 and is available from the App Center. The price is fair, but we’d love to see more illustrations added to the repertoire.

    Ce jeu impressionne surtout par sa vitesse car le rythme de jeu est vraiment intéréssant. J'espere qu'ils sont disponibles sur le Samsung Galaxy S4 mini ?
