From DreamWorks Animation and JumpStart comes Madagascar Preschool Surf n’ Slide™, an immersive themed game, where players join young Alex, Marty, Gloria, and Melman, and the entire Madagascar gang for a slip-sliding adventure in learning! Players will surf down amazing slides as they learn multitudes of preschool skills on their mobile device.

My daughter takes over our iPad constantly, so it’s now mainly for the kids. I sometimes have a difficult time determining which apps would be fun for them and educational at the same time. JumpStart’s new Madagascar Preschool Surf N’ Slide app is definitely a winner in our home. While it seems a bit too easy for my 1st grader, it’s a nice way to refresh her skills, because sometimes she can forget about those. We are now working on introducing this to my pre-schooler, but he isn’t much into playing games on the iPad…he’d rather color.

Addictive Features:
– 18 lessons across 6 subjects: Numbers, Letters, Colors, Shapes, Animals, and Critical Thinking
– 4 Madagascar themed levels: New York Zoo, Antarctica, Africa, and Madagascar Jungle!
– Sticker Book with 4 scenes and over 125 Madagascar themed stickers
– Fast-paced arcade action going down the slides!
– Designed for Preschoolers — no confusing menus or navigation
– Unlimited play – each game flows right into the next
-Tilt or Slider controls

It’s quite simple to use, as my 6yo figured it out all on her own and honestly I wouldn’t have it any other way. It helps them search for things I wouldn’t have otherwise found and can be confident on their own…though there isn’t too much to get lost in on this app. She enjoys picking a different character every time, but mainly chooses Alex. Personally I like Gloria & Melman…then you can also choose your own mode of transportation, such as a flying carpet, surfboard, ride a turtle or a cloud.

Once you choose your character and mode of transportation, you are taken through a series of tunnel like obstatical courses and use the paw print at the bottom of the screen to stear your way through and get the stars. The more stars the better off you are, then you also come across lots more stars that bring up fun & educational puzzles to solve. When you finish the puzzle, you earn stickers too choose and later decorate different scenes with.

This is a great app that teaches the basics of preschool and coordination on the iPad. We will sure be using this for the next couple of years to sharpen our skills!

PURCHASE on iTunes for $2.99 and can be used on your iPad or iPhone
