Play memory, pronunciation and association games. The pack includes 14 games with various difficulty levels and is designed for kindergarten kids.

Childsplay is an application which includes a series of 14 educational games for kids. Learning or enhancing all sorts of information by playing a game is far more easy and efficient than other teaching methods. The program is designed for kindergarten children and can be used both at home and for preschool classes. Each game has different levels of difficulty. Users can pass through each level, or they can skip the easiest ones to reach the highest.

Parents and educators, as well as children, will definitely appreciate the diversity of games both regarding the purpose which they are intended for, and the way they are presented. To be more specific, kids have the possibility to practice classic memory games where they are supposed to find pairs of cards containing images, letters or numbers, as well as pairs of sounds. They are also put in the position of listening to a voice pronouncing letters or numbers and giving the correct answer by clicking on the right image. The same activity, of matching the sound with a picture, will be found in a game where children hear sounds released by different animals, musical instruments, transport vehicles, and kids should link the corresponding images. Moreover, kids have the opportunity to exercise mouse handling till their movements are accurate enough to click the moving images. Another exercise is for keyboard training where children are expected to type the letters falling on the screen before they hit the ground. There are also simple games like puzzles, pacman, pong, and billiards which will surely entertain them.

This utility is a combination of children's willingness of using the computer, enjoyment of playing games, acquiring all kinds of knowledge, and training skills.
