Mouse Tales is for kids and this puzzle-based game is ideal for those very young ones, as well as the developing children in our lives. When you merge a puzzle with children in a game, you are effectively looking at education – in some form or another.
The aim of the game is to teach the children about new objects; objects that they may not have encountered before but will form part and parcel of everyday life as they develop themselves. You know the sort of things: microwave, razor, mobile phone, plant pot, lamp shade, picture, magazine, mice, umbrella, tie and plant pot; all those kind of things a toddler would have no use for but as a child growing up, these items will become slowly more a part of their daily lives. And we all know just how inquisitive the mind of a young child is on a daily basis: we are more than aware of their curiosity and their seemingly endless questions as to which object that is, and what function this item does and so on and on.
Mouse Tales helps a child with many of the questions he or she will fire off on a daily basis. The game tells kids what certain objects actually do – like a pair of curtains keeps the people on the street from looking in to the house at night time, a jacket that will keep you warm on a chilly day and an umbrella that will keep off the rain on a wet day.
Mouse Tales also tells our children where these items belong; particularly when they are not in use. So, effectively your child will learn such new methods of what objects actually are, what they can do with them and where they belong when they have been used, or are not currently being used.
If anything, your child might learn that his or her shoes belong in the cupboard after they have returned home from school. The children will be tasked with cleaning the rooms, and within these rooms live a mouse. Basically the items are in the wrong places and your child needs to move them into the right place.
Throughout the game your child will learn that one object belongs in a certain place, and the items positioned in the wrong place must be removed and repositioned. There are more than 50 different items within the app and there are no distracting adverts to disturb your child’s education.
