iPhone Review: Giraffe's PreSchool Playground


My kids are older. I have one entering her senior year of high school, and one attending college, so perhaps I’m not the target demographic for a game designed for preschoolers.

Regardless, you’ll find my review inside.

If you’re able to read this review, you’re likely not going to enjoy this title… but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth your consideration.

Not by a long shot.

Giraffe’s PreSchool Playground is a collection of mini-games with a very subtle touch of education.

Your child will be tasked with matching letters and numbers based on visual and verbal cues (in the Ace Adventurer mode the clues are verbal only), identifying and collecting various animals, and even given a sandbox picture editor that can export their creations.


The visuals are friendly and brightly colored, the music is enjoyable (even for adults, though I hate to admit it), and the animal sounds are entertaining. GPP has exception production values for an iPhone game, especially from a first-time developer.

While adults will quickly get bored, my tests with children were unanimously positive.

Consider this a great time waster for your 3-5 year old. If you’re child is older than that… you may want to look elsewhere.

Back in the day, I wish I had this title available to me. While waiting for a movie to start, the food to get to your table, or on a long car ride, it’s an easy way to keep your kiddie occupied.

Matt says BUY IT.
