Star Gurus | Educational Connect-the-Dots Numbers Game for Preschoolers
✔ iPad + iPhone | Kids App for ages 3-5+ years
After the cute toddlers app »Eli Explorer« the Italian app developers Colto have published another interesting kids app called »Star Gurus«. Star Gurus is a small »connect-the-dots« game, with which preschool children get to playfully learn and practise numbers and counting. Since the app is offered for free, due to the launch of it for Apple iPad and iPhone, it is well worth to download as soon as you can! – *Update 17.05.2015
Connect-the-Stars Numbers Game
In Star Gurus kids don’t actually connect dots, but instead, they connect sparkling stars on a starry night scenery. Each star carries a number and whilst kids connect all stars starting with the smallest outgoing number, a beautiful picture constellation of stars emerges from the connected lines. At the moment, the app includes a total of 20 star pictures with animal motifs, which provides for plenty of alternation. According to the App Store description, Star Gurus will be regularly updated with new motifs, something we’re really looking forward to.
Multilingual including Narration
Whilst children connect the stars following the right order, the narrator counts the respective numbers whilst they go along. The motifs are also named clearly when the constellation of stars are revealed, which seems pretty reasonable considering that there are some strange animals such as the Dodo bird. Kids also get to learn to count in various different languages, since the app was largely recorded and translated multilingually. The languages are UK & US English, German, Italian, Spanish, French, Japanese, Brazilian, Korean, Russian and Chinese.
It is generally advisable to take a look at the options menu, because besides the language, many more parameters can be individually adjusted to your child’s needs. The range of numbers that are offered are »1 to 10″ and »1 to 20″. Alternatively, » groups of tens to 100″ can also be used. Another optional help function is available for younger kindergarten kids, which subtly brightens up the next star.

Star Gurus | Kids App Rating
Connect-the-Dots was a very popular game when i was a kid – of course we used a pen and paper for this and yes, only once for each picture, as the picture was then used and fully drawn on. Well, this problem no longer exists for kids these days. Star Gurus brings back the game classic and it can be played as much as one likes, shines for it’s comprehensive narration and many possibilities settings. The number of motifs is a little scarce, but it is surely enough for a start and new motifs have already been planned.
Also as the app is offered for free at the moment, we are safe to say, that it is absolutely recommendable to download it. In order for us to give it a final rating though, we’ll have to wait for the final sales price and the future quantity of motifs.
