Creative, independent learning brought to the iPad.

Shape-O! ABC’s is an activity for preschool age kids that encourages “learning by doing” by integrating puzzles, shapes, words, colors and sounds. It features over 100 inventive shape-puzzles and was developed in consultation with a PhD level education specialist.

★ Over 100 images
Geometric shapes are pieced together to form images including animals, plants, landscapes, transportation, faces and foods.

★ Alphabet & spelling
Letters are used as puzzle pieces to form words, helping with letter recognition and spelling. Friendly voiceovers demonstrate pronunciation, and parents can adjust the settings panel to customize difficulty to the unique abilities of their child.

★ 8 color palettes
The rainbow button allows kids to rotate through colors expressing a variety of moods and tonal ranges inspired by natural and imaginary worlds. The simple screen designs incorporate warm textures of wood and craft papers.

★ Real instrumental sounds
A local composer created the melodious sound effects and background music. Kids will identify the real-world instruments, and parents will appreciate the simplicity of the tones.

★ Positive feedback
When a shape puzzle is completed successfully, children are rewarded with a triumphant “congratulations” sound, word and graphic. The aural and visual encouragement rewards the value of their effort and inspires continued play.

★ Thoughtful design
Shape-O! ABC’s strikes a balance between entertaining and challenging kids. The large, colorful buttons are designed for small fingers, and the simple icons are easily remembered for independent play.

★ We’re kids at heart
At Bellamon everything we do is designed for and tested by small people with big imaginations.
