Children Love "Things That Move"

Construct-o-Set's Latest App is a Hit!
Children Love "Things That Move"


If you've ever tried to amuse a child in a waiting room, doctor's office, or train station, you know how trying the experience can be – not only for you, but for the child who wants to be engaged in an interesting activity. Well, the solution is as near as your iPhone! Construct-o-Set's latest product, "Things That Move," is available for download in the iPhone Appstore.


Using one finger, your child can manipulate shapes on the screen to construct a number of simple vehicles – in other words, things that move! The child drags a shape on the margin toward a completed picture in the center. As the child pulls the brightly-colored shape over its paler counterpart, it snaps into place and a new shape appears on the margin, ready to be moved.

"Things That Move," like all Construct-o-Set products, is an excellent way for the child to learn to match similar objects, name colors, and identify shapes. But best of all, apps such as this one teach youngsters to master some of the basic functions of an iPhone – a skill set that will become invaluable in our electronic, cyber-connected age.

And you won't have any trouble encouraging your child to play these engaging games. The iPhone is so small and compact that it feels more like a toy than a piece of electronic equipment, and the bright colors and child-friendly appearance of the Construct-o-Set apps encourage the child to experiment and play. Before allowing your child to play with your iPhone, however, you'll want to remember to put the phone in airplane mode, thus disabling its transmission functions.

Best of all, you can download this adorable app to your iPhone or iPad for less than the price of a cup of coffee at most upscale cafés! So don't get caught empty-handed with a whiny toddler – download Construct-o-Set's "Things That Move" today!

Our September update will include new audio clips which will say the name of the thing that you are going to build, and we'll also add two new sets.

So keep your eyes out for the UFO and Yacht sets coming soon...
