Once Moose & Zebra Kids Magazine is downloaded and opened, a world of fun is opened for kids. Mind you, the bigger the window into that world (large tablet over 4″ phone) the better. The Magazine offers a splattering of interesting facts about African animals in the first free issue, and Sweden and Dinosaurs in the purchasable issues. The free African issue offers an array of fun mini-games. These games range from coloring tasks, to shape placement, to item drag and drop, to logic puzzles. Overall, the magazine is well worth the time needed to install the free download, and the expansion issues are well worth the $1.99 asking price, especially if you consider many children’s books sell for more than $10. The Moose & Zebra Kids Magazine is interactive and able to be played again and again with a fun dress up game at the end and a great, easy-to-navigate menu that allows users to play any mini-game as much as they desire. In-app purchases are protected with arithmetic equations that older children will be able to solve, so be wary of that, but for the target audience, this should protect them enough, and allows for an ad free experience. Issues seem only to arise in the use of smaller devices like 4″ android phones and iPhones, as controls can sometimes seem unresponsive. Other than this, Moose & Zebra Kids Magazine provides beautiful, animated graphics and a crisp user interface, a fluid interactive component, and good replay value with new issues and a wide variety of mini-games.
Moose & Zebra is a unique interactive educational magazine for kids. A variety of exciting activities will be found in this magazine all aimed at developing kids logical, math, memory and fine motor skills.
