His favorite app is Tiggly Safari. The shapes seem solidly built to me; he has repeatedly chewed on the shapes without damaging them (I promise he's a kid and not a puppy) and no matter how hard he bangs on the iPad, neither the toys nor the tablet are any the worse for wear. …

Fun, educational, still some bugs.
These are a great idea, interactive play. When you get them they do seem somewhat insubstantial for the price, but it is new so These are a great idea, interactive play. When you get them they do seem somewhat insubstantial for the price, but it is new so I guess to be expected. Four stars instead of five, because the triangle is difficult to read on the iPad. I actually took my first set back because I thought it wasn't working (I couldn't register the app because I couldn't get the triangle to be recognized) had difficulty with the replacement so started fiddling with it and it takes a lot more pressure than the other pieces, and is actually a little difficult for a toddler who needs to apply pressure just so. It may just be the batch, the other pieces work will little to no pressure applied so I don't know what the issue is with the triangles. Overall, still very fun and educational. I am curious if others have the same issue with the triangle though. …

He is 21 months old and really enjoys playing safari. He can guess the animals from the sounds and nows easily identifies the shapes and colours when asked. It is a truly interactive game and I like it a lot more than letting him stream some movie on netflix!
I would highly recommend this from 18-20 months alhtough he didn't fully understand the concept until a few weeks ago.
Will most definitely buy it as a gift! …
