Bug Art – paint, design and explore | creative app for kids
✔ iPad + iPhone | kids app for ages 3-6 years
A very springlike kids app has to be »Bug Art« which is a collection of games and Art activities, with bugs and other insects. Kids get to create and design their own bugs on a beautiful natural setting, where they can watch their bugs come to life and also play with them as they like. The app was produced by Little Bit Studio, who have already fascinated us with their other educational kids app »Bugs & Numbers«.
Paint your very own bug
Bug Art presents itself as a mysterious box, which slowly opens and surprises kids with it’s interesting miniature bug’s world, once the app is started. There’s lots to explore and discover and it’s probably best if your start of by creating your own bug. You can however, play all games with already designed bugs, but it is much more fun and interesting to play with your own painted bug.
Kids can choose between bugs, butterflies and ants. The outlines of the insects need to be colored in first and will come to life as a 3D model, which will follow your finger around.
* The Bug race is beautiful to look at, however a little too easy to win. Your bugs gain speed whilst continuously tapping on two big buttons, whereby kids were so fast during the testing, that they even won against other insects in higher game rounds.
* In the Butterfly Valley kids get to steer flying insects via tilt function (iPad/iPhone). They fly through different kinds of target gates, such as a dandelion gate, in the lush gardens of Butterfly Valley.
* The Bug Playground can be freely explored with the bugs. There is a Leaf-slide, a dragonfly-taxi and other funny and interesting surprises.
The extraordinary color pallet and the range of drawing equipments are of course available for free. Kids will learn how to draw an ant or a butterfly with the help of a drawing tutorial,which is offered in this area.
Bug Art | kids app rating
We don’t normally have any bugs crawling over our desks, however Bug Art has simply amazed us. We especially like the graphics which have been lovingly designed with many details. Even the drawing equipments are much better than in many other Art apps and surprise with additional stickers and insects, which can crawl all over your pictures. Even if the games are a little too simple and relatively easy, the package as a whole is pretty convincing. The purchase price of $ 0.99 is also a real bargain.
