Amazing Alex is another great app by Rovio (makers of Angry Birds) that will have your children working their brains while they think they are simply gaming. Alex is a typical kid with stuff everywhere and has obviously been told to tidy up. Books and balls need to be put away, but it is too boring to just place them in the baskets where they go. Alex makes a kind of marble run with all the shelves and books and pipes etc. at his disposal. Actually, your child will be making the marble run, using Rube Goldberg kind of problem solving skills to get objects from point A to point B. Excellent summer brain training right here, for FREE but only for TODAY. Go get it!

The first eight levels in the app provide a kind of tutorial, with outlines of where certain objects need to go in order to complete the level. After that, your kids are on their own, figuring out (any way that works) how to get the balls in the basket (or whatever) and collect stars along the way. There are four sections in the app with more than 100 levels to attempt. Plus there is a section to create your own levels, another to download other players' levels and finally there are "Levels Of The Week" featured in another section. Amazing Alex is one of those apps that makes use of higher order thinking and allows children creative expression, which is why I love it!
This is an excellent app for sharing, not only face-to-face, but also for kids who are geographically distant from each other. Either with a parent's help or for older kids with their own Facebook accounts, kids can link up and share their progress and levels. Keep kids connected and foster their creative genius this summer with Amazing Alex!
