Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Ed Emberley’s Shake & Make is a surprisingly challenging picture puzzle game based on the artwork of famed illustrator and art teacher, Ed Emberley. You start with one of Emberley’s drawings, shake your device to scatter the pieces, and then put it back together. The tough part comes from so many of the pieces looking so much alike — many are just straight black lines. Younger kids can choose to play without a timer, and hints are available with a simple tap. In addition to just being puzzles, though, each image — composed of simple shapes and lines — is meant to be easy for kids to recreate in their own artwork.

Ed Emberley’s Shake & Make is a Puzzle Games app that is designed for those 6.  The app has an overall rating of 5 out of 5 and a learning rating of 3 out of 5.
