Tickle your Dinosaur and your Funnybone -- with DinOSet

Tickle your Dinosaur – and your Funnybone -- with DinOSet

Does your child like dinosaurs? What kid doesn't? For the dinosaur-lover in every child, Polymorph Systems has introduced DinOSet, an adorable toddler-level app you can download to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. Like Polymorph's earlier releases StructOSet, MovOSet and AnimOSet, DinOSet features pictures that can be completed by dragging colorful shapes across the screen with a fingertip. Even the smallest child can easily do this! But this release features a notable improvement over its predecessors: DinOSet's pictures seem to have a felt-like texture that enhances the app's graphic appearance. You can almost feel the cuddly, fuzzy texture through the screen!

How does DinOSet work? A faint image of your desired dinosaur appears on the screen, and, a moment later, you'll see a textured shape that matches some part of the dinosaur image. Your child places his or her finger on the shape and drags it over to the dinosaur image, where it snaps into place. As soon as your child does this, another shape appears in the margin, ready for your child to match to the dinosaur picture as well. Most children will find that it only takes a minute or two to complete the dinosaur, and then a new dinosaur image appears, ready for your child to tackle. Kids love the sound effects too!

It's easy to see why children find DinOSet so much fun. The game enhances toddlers' hand-eye coordination and helps them learn shape matching and color identification, but adults will find it strangely addictive as well. Possibly it's the adorable dinosaurs, the simulated texture (which really is fascinating), or just the sense of satisfaction that comes from completing a little project. But try and remember it's your child's app, and at least give your little one equal time!

– and while you're at it, take a look at the entire Construct-O-Set line, all available on iTunes: the original StructOSet, MovOSet and AnimOSet. Download them all! Your child may not yet be developmentally ready to thank you – but the next time you and your toddler are stuck in a doctor's office or waiting for a train, you'll be able to pull out your phone, set it to airplane mode, and watch your child pass the time without a whimper. The peace and quiet will be all the thanks you'll ever need!
