There's a good collection of content available for kids on the Windows and Windows Phone stores, but now you can add Start School from Penguin Books to that list. The app enables kids to learn and play with twins Topsy and Tim, the playful duo who have been around for more than 50 years. Should your child be starting school, this is a superb companion app for them to enjoy.
The app itself contains numerous entertaining, interactive games. Kids are tasked with sorting through pairs, completing jigsaws, while able to train their minds with memory games and even dance along with Topsy and Time. It's not a bad feature list. To make the overall experience more tailored to the child, they're even able to name the school and pack their own school bag.
A really neat feature with Start School is that it essentially introduces the routine and education as a whole in a comfortable and familiar environment - perfect for those who are anticipating their first day. You've got colour matching, shape sorting, logic and deduction, observation and more. What's more is all this is brought to kids by Ladybird and is all neatly presented in both an attractive and simple UI.
Topsy and Time themselves were created back in 1959 by husband and wife Jean and Gareth Adamson. The series showed (and continues to do so) children what they would experience in life. The highly popular and successful work has been recognised in the form of an MBE for services to children literature. It's positive to see the same series come to Windows Phone with Kid's Corner, as well as Windows with tablets, etc.
Now your kids can follow the twins on the move as well as on TV. You can download Start School from the Windows Phone Store for $2.49 (no trial available - Windows Phone 8 only) and from the Windows Store for $3.99.
