The Happy World of petite frite is a colorful, friendly animal based world with a cheerful musical accompaniment to the included games. Presented without words to be universally appealing, petite frite has four modes to explore.
- In puzzle mode, move the pieces to the correct places to enjoy an animated picture
- Memory mode has two versions: for younger kids the matching game is face up so that they can easily choose the pairs. More traditionally for older children, the cards are face down. Each option includes three different size grids.
- The musical theater features 10 different animals that can be selected together or separately to create unique performances.
- The landscape mode functions as a movable sticker landscape. With four categories to choose from and dozens of stickers, numerous stories can be created! The objects can be manipulated by using two fingers to make them bigger and smaller and to rotate. This is one section that would benefit from verbal instructions.
This is a great app for young children. The recommended age is 4+, but I believe technologically savy younger children will also enjoy many elements of The Happy World of petite frite. Most aspects of the games are intuitive and do not require verbal instructions. The one area I would love to see updated is the landscape mode. While there are unlimited amounts of scenes that you can create, the characters are not animated once placed. Since animation is such a unique aspect in the puzzle mode it would be great to see the pieces become animated once placed in the landscape mode as well. Overall a well done bright and cheerful app by Twist & Trout Design.
