Gozoa goes shopping | awesome dress-up math app for kids
✔ iPad + iPhone ✔ Android ✔ Kindle Fire | kids app for ages 5-8 years
The Danish kids app developers Gozoa have specialized themselves on educational games, where plenty of fun and entertainment is guaranteed in this game.
We have already introduced you to Gozoa Play & Learn Math in the past, which was a little more comprehensive than this app, however Gozoa goes shopping is even more reasonable in price, which makes this app really worth purchasing, as it only costs $ 0.99. This app will introduce and teach kids about the value of money, which will be relevant for primary school kids, but this subject is still quite rare on the kids app market.
Calculating for and with money
To let you know in advance, just in case some of you were wondering: There are NO in-app purchases in Gozoa goes shopping. The game currency is generated within the game.
Before kids start calculating, they get introduced to a funny dress-up game, which will motivate them with the arithmetical problems, as Gozoa and his friends have just landed and would like a new makeover. To be able to do so, kids have a lot of clothes and accessories to choose from, which need to be bought first. The start-up money is quickly spent.
To quickly fill up the piggy bank with money again, which can be spent in the shop, kids need to solve the mathematical problem first. There are three basic arithmetic operations and three ranges of numbers to choose from:
- range of number 1-10
- range of numbers 1-20
- range of numbers 1-30
We find the following aspects of the math games particularly interesting:
- The objects need to be counted first, as the quantity is not always numerically shown.
- The answer is given via a sliding bar at the bottom of the screen.
- If kids get the answers wrong, then one coin less will tumble inside the piggy bank.
The presentation of the games is pretty cool and really hits the children’s taste. The pink border is a little daring, as some boys might say that this game is a typical girl’s game, however it is not. Gozoa goes shopping is aimed at boys and girls, where both will have something to find for themselves in another play area: At the end, kids can place their Gozoa on a setting and take pictures of him/her. Kids can choose e.g. a sports car or even a princess-castle. As a background, they can even choose a more realistic background such as their own via camera function.
A really interesting feature is also, that the shot pictures will hang as decorative photos on the shopping center’s wall later on.
Gozoa goes shopping is an awesome dress-up game combined with mathematical problems. It offers an interesting educational learning game for primary school kids. We also got to praise the really family-friendly price of $ 0.99 (iOS) which is a real bargain. Good value for money is definitely given and deserves a full 5 star rating.

We hope that the app also resonates with you, because it certainly also depends on how many apps Gozoa will be publishing in the future.
Tip: It’s really worth to take a look at the parents area, where also a lot of didactic information is given.
