Today I’m going to talk about a game that is not something you will usually spot on video game sites. Not that we don’t like to be different, but like yourself, we as video game journalists might just have small amounts of free time available. That’s why I’m going to share my thoughts about Kapu Forest, a game I’ve been enjoying a lot with my little one.
Kapu Forest by Kapu Toys, is a colorful and fun digital toy/game for kids aged 1-4. By exploring nature and carrying out different kind of mini-tasks, the game presents all the wonders of the northern forests to kids through various forest animals. Kapu Forest is available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and – Android. For the “reviewing purposes” we’ve been enjoying the Android version with Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
Your kids first digital steps.
It captivates the smaller audience
Since the game is a playground for smaller kids, you’ll be greeted with a child-friendly interface with colorful animations and playful sounds you would imagine hearing in a northern forest. It captivates the smaller audience, and I too felt relaxed and interested to explore what Kapu Forest has to offer.
The controls are intuitive for kids regardless of the age. You move the camera sideways by swiping the screen with your finger, and it shows you a forest filled with different kind of animals. There is a squirrel in a tree, a fox sitting on the ground and so on. Touch the animal and a mini-game begins.
A Digital Toy Box
There are over 10 animals (or should we say mini-games) to play with in Kapu Forest. These tasks range from feeding berries to a fox to directing the lost mole home. There are no timers or any sort of limits whatsoever and the games are easy enough to develop cognitive skills and altruistic behavior.
By making the game so simple, Kapu Forest is always fun. Kids won’t be frustrated because they’re stuck on hard levels or something like that. They’re free to explore, learn and develop their skills while having fun. And while they’re enjoying themselves, I guarantee that you – as a parent – will enjoy it too.
There are no third party advertising or sneaky in-app sales – and it is available in English, Spanish, Russian, German and even Finnish (Yay!). And yes, Kapu Forest is completely free!
If you’re looking for a beautiful-looking app suitable for kids (and you too) which will help your kid learn about forests and develop their skills, look no further. Kapu Forest is sure to entertain and it will provide hours of fun for the smaller folk. In addition, this is a life-safer for longer trips! You’ll know, if you have kids.
