Touch & Learn has announced the launch of its latest edutainment app for kids, Fun Town. The game is targeted at children ages 2-6, and includes mini-games that teach color matching, sorting, number ordering, shape recognition and much more.
In Fun Town, players enter a colorful world where they can help repair broken items, make burgers in the diner, grow plants in a flower shop and much more. Kids can interact with the town’s citizens or cars, with each shop in town offering a different mini-game.
The flower game, for instance, sees players planting seeds, watering the seeds and waiting for flowers to grow, while the diner allows kids to build burgers by stacking individual ingredients to match a picture on the order ticket.
Touch & Learn has designed each mini-game to “encourage experimentation and stimulate the imagination of children,” and the app also includes memory match games, geography puzzles, and more.
“Our aim is for Fun Town to be fun and engaging but also educational,” said Lewis, in a statement. “We think playing and having fun is the best way to learn about the world. Often there is a clear distinction between an educational app and a game. Our aim is to combine the best of both in a fresh and original way.”
