Foldify Zoo – Papercraft fun! | new creative crafting app for kids and the whole family
✔ iPad | kids & family app for ages 6+ yrs.
Foldify has been one of the most popular crafting apps in the past year and now continues with their brand new app Foldify Zoo. With Foldify Zoo, kids get to create some awesome paper toys again, which can be printed out and crafted with – this time however, it’s Zoo animals only. We’re going to show you what you can expect in Foldify Zoo below.
Creating Paper Toy Zoo Animals
Foldify Zoo is not the only crafting app that offers Zoo animals for kids, which is why we’re going to compare Foldify Zoo with the also well-known Paper Zoo app. With both apps, various animal shapes and figures can be printed out either via AirPrint or via a simple PDF, which is then sent to your e-mail address.
Foldify Zoo offers 10 animal templates:
A giraffe, kangaroo, elephant, hippo, rhino, lion, gorilla, tucan, turtle and a crocodile.
Each animal has their own Wikipedia information, which are displayed next to the animal. This is really good, as it gives children some interesting facts and knowledge about the animals, which they might not have yet known of them before.
The Tiny Paper Zoo app however, offers 15 templates by the way, which are also named. We do have to give this app some extra credit for this.
Creating, crafting & sharing
Foldify was scoring with it’s editor last year, which allows you to colour and decorate the foldify model with stickers on the iPad. A 3D model is shown on the left side of the screen, as a preview of what the paper model will look like. Apart from the printing and crafting, it is also great fun to colour those animals and if one likes, can share their animal with the Foldify community.
Foldify Zoo | Kids app rating
Foldify is a brilliant sequel to the first Foldify app, but it does certainly not replace it. We find the templates of the first foldify app a lot easier for younger children, than the animal templates of Foldify Zoo. The new Foldify app also gets some new competition of the proven Tiny Paper Zoo app, which may not offer an editor, however they do offer more animal templates to choose from. Nevertheless, all three apps, have won some true crafting friends.
(+) Beautiful paper toy templates
(+) Unique editor including a 3D preview
(+) Offers lots of fun for the whole family
(-) we’d love more templates
