Beiz Lola Panda App for iPhone and iPod Teaches World Flags

If you would have told me a few months ago that young kids can learn on Ipods or phones, I would have doubted that.  As always, kids never cease to amaze me.  My two kids, two and six, love the Ipod even though much to the chagrin of my 21 year old, the two year old deletes her apps.  Those apps are great things pending on your interests and as some are free, others cost.  One day back in December, I watched my two year laying on the floor with her sister's Ipod Touch and she was shaking it.  I asked my oldest what she was doing and she told me she was clearing the screen.  I was amazed that she knew to do that and when Beiz Ltd had an offer to review their new game Lola's Flag Adventure, I thought this would be a great opportunity to try another educational game venue with them.

If you don't know who Beiz Ltd is, they are Beijing-based game design studio.  Lola's Flag Adventure 1.0, is their first children's flag game for iPhone and iPod Touch. Lola's Flag Adventure features voice guidance, an easy-to-use interface and wonderfully designed panda graphics and world flags.  Lola's Flag Adventure has two games for children to choose from:
  1. A memory game for children who cannot read.  This is a fun game as it has three difficulty levels of easy, medium or hard.  My six year old really enjoys playing the game and is challenged by it with the three levels of difficulty.  In order for her to move to the second game, I need to teach her the country's name associated with the flag.  I think the two year old could play this game with some help and guidance but it would take a little effort.
  2. The flag trivia is for older children or even adults if they want to learn the flags. The game provides fun and challenge both for preschoolers and junior school children.  We haven't moved up to that game yet but I can see my six year old eventually playing it and liking it.  The flags included are of the biggest countries from Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific.

There will be more games in the series with Lola and what kid doesn't love panda bears?  This is a good educational opportunity if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch.  Can you imagine how it would make waiting at the doctor's office or other places easier by having this game on your iPhone or iPod? 

I would recommend this game as a good venue in teaching about world flags and countries.  Lola is a cute panda that will entice the little one's and the easy to follow games are a fun way to teach while having fun.  At only $1.99, you can't go wrong.
