If you look online to search for the pros and cons of allowing young kids to play games online you will find as many positive comments as you will find negative ones. Some will say that kids should be playing with physical toys and interacting with their parents rather than being immersed in a virtual world on a computer. Others will say that kids should be outside enjoying the big wide world rather than stuck on the couch with an iPad in their sticky hands. However, many experts say that when kids play well thought out educational games it can improve their problem solving and strategic thinking skills as well as improving hand / eye coordination. When they are done well, ‘seek and find’ games are perfect for the younger generation and here we have a very colourful educational game for kids aged 3 and up that aims to improve their observational skills as well as their attention to detail while offering an awful lot of fun in the process.

Tiny Traveler is an engaging and beautiful looking free kids game for Android and iOS that’s well worth investigating. This seek and find app helps kids find and identify a whole bunch of cool wildlife in a series of attention grabbing locations. The idea of the game is for kids to work their way through a series of very different locations and to identify and match a whole bunch of wildlife in their natural environments on the page. Once they have located them – it could be a colorful fish, a shellfish or a bird - they can simply drag it down to the matching icon at the bottom of the screen and watch it disappear. There’s no specific time limit on the game and kids can move on to the next scene as soon as they’ve identified and matched all the characters on the screen. However, there is a ticking clock on the screen that tells parents just how long little Jimmy or Jenny has been playing for. 

Locations range from an underwater scene with seahorses and clown fish, a snowy town in winter, an action-packed summer funfair, a toy store filled with goodies, an autumnal forest, a farm full of animals and a beach scene with everything that comes with it. Once the scene is set your child will identify the fauna to be matched at the bottom of the screen and cab then search all over the picture to find the identical image before tugging it to the relevant image and ‘capturing’ it.  Kids will learn about how animals live in the wild whilst having a whale of a time searching the scene.

This beautifully animated game not only shows a myriad of animals, birds and underwater creatures in their natural environments but also goes someway towards teaching them about the various seasons and their environment. In fact, Tiny Traveler turns into a virtual encyclopedia of nature and teaches children about the world of nature while they enjoy the game. They’ll discover which species live underground in winter, which marine creatures live in the ocean, what animals eat and what they get up to on farms and in the wild. By identifying the various types of wildlife in each scene kids will attain better hand / eye coordination, increased concentration, improved attention span and enhance their visual perception.

Tiny Traveler is a fascinating and very colourful game that is designed to capture your child’s imagination while also becoming a source of knowledge in the world of nature. There are a couple of versions of the app available for iOS. Time Traveler Lite is completely free but the full version unlocks more levels and can be purchased for under two bucks on the App Store or as an in-app purchase. The developers suggest for players to de-activate Multitasking gestures when playing as they may cause interruptions in the gameplay on your iPad. Just go to the general area in your iPad settings page and turn them off – its very simple. The Android version is completely free and is available on GooglePlay.
