Old Macdonald iPhone App Review.

It's been a while since an iPhone game designed for youngsters appealed to us as well, so much so as to have a full-fledged review on it. Old MacDonald is such an iPhone app designed for children aged 2 to 8 by parents of youngsters. The game is primarily designed to build preschool spelling skills and animal recognition, but it's funny and interesting puzzle games will widen the attention span and build fine motor skills.

The app is of course based on the popular children's song about Old MacDonald and his animal farms. When you start up the game, the farm is empty and is waiting to be populated with animals. The game features two stages. First, your child will have to select which animal goes on a farm by picking one from the animal wheel on the screen. As he rotates the wheel, the animals will make their specific sounds in turn. If he picks the wrong animal, it will disappear in one of three funny ways and he will have to choose again. When he gets it right, hear the full Old MacDonald song and move on to stage two.

In the second stage, he will have to correctly place the farm animal in the farm, by picking the spot where it would most likely be. Once all the animals are in place, watch Old MacDonald start dancing and singing. It the process, the youngsters learn all the sounds that animals make, together with who should or should not be on a farm.

The graphics are cartoonish, as they very well should be, and the coloring and overall feel contributes to a great experience for the young ones. The app is simple without any creativity involved on the part of the youngsters, but it's an entertaining hit that will be enjoyed by your young apprentices. Old MacDonald is available in the App Store for $0.99.
