|Seal of Approval Winner Holiday 2012
The Cat in the Hat is back in a hybrid version of a game that blends traditional game pieces with an iPad app. By matching, pairing, and solving challenges that appear on the screen, kids interact with one of Dr. Seuss’ most beloved characters in ways they never have before. The pieces of the real game are well made, sturdy and sized just right for small hands to manipulate. The integration with the app comes in a variety of games.
Simple matching, where kids try to find tiles that match the shape, color, or character on the screen.
Slap Down where quick reflexes pay off as you try to be the first to slap down your tile when it matches what pops up on the screen. Finally there’s Guess-A-Roo where players have to guess the Secret Tile from the on-screen clues. Collect the most tiles and you are the winner. Parents appreciated the fact that while the game and app were fun and certainly held huge appeal, it was also teaching shape, color, and character recognition.
