Create Customized Children’s Games with TinyTap

**This is a review written for TinyTap. No compensation was received.

Over the past couple of weeks, Little Man and I had a chance to test out a new app for iPhone and iPad called TinyTap. TinyTap is a unique app, because not only does it offer educational games for your child, you can create customized games for your family using your own text, photos and voice!

The app comes pre-loaded with a few games already, one of which (“Who is bigger?”) became an instant favorite in our house!

There are a lot of other games available to download, created by people just like you! (Bonus: Most are FREE!)

You can also search for games by language and/or age, which makes it easy to find all sorts of games for your child’s skill level.

But how do you create your OWN game? It’s super easy! On the home screen, select “create a game”. You’ll be taken to a blank canvas with several options. Here you can import photos from your camera, Dropbox, or use stock images from the TinyTap app.

I decided to create a counting game for my son, so I didn’t want to overwhelm him with images or colors. I left the background white and added black text. The next step is to add sound to the game. Again, there are several options to choose from, but I figured “Ask a Question” fit the best with what I was trying to achieve. With this selection, I was able to record a question, an answer, and what would play if a mistake was made. From here, you can continue adding slides until your game is complete!

Even at 2 years old, my son had so much fun with the TinyTap App on our iPad! The app is geared towards kids from ages 1-12, so I’m sure it would be a fun activity to add to your traditional preschool or homeschooling curriculum.

TinyTap is available for download now on the App Store! There are also 12 individual games currently available for Android devices (just search for “Tinytap” in the Google Play Store), and the rest of the TinyTap games and game creation capabilities are coming soon!
