Childhood is the time that can never be repeated. Each and every second is full of little new discoveries. Our children live through memorable adventures and enjoy being Columbuses, finding hidden secrets of the world around them every day. Through games kids learn to interact with each other and their surroundings.
Inspired by the magic of childhood, a group of talented people, namely Teasang Cho, Caroline Oh, and Young Cho, have developed an application for iPad that is supposed to help children release their creativity. It is targeted at kids aged 6 to 12 years.
ShapeKit helps them learn basic shapes, such as squares, equilateral and isosceles triangles, quadrants, circles, and semicircles, providing the most essential information about them. By connecting and merging shapes, adding joints, decorating the built objects, kids can form anything they want. The process of connecting parts is performed in a more realistic way than could be expected, emphasizing the physicality of creation: a kid has to punch holes in the shapes and connect them with brads. After learning the basics about forms and colors, shape connecting, decorating, and animation, children can finally make their own frame-by-frame animated story.
ShapeKit surprises you with what can be done with only six geometric shapes at hand. It resembles Tangram with more variables and no limits. If you want your child to have boundless creativity, this application is just what you need.
