ExplorArt Klee – The Art of Paul Klee, for Kids
by Lapisly S.C.P.
This beautifully designed interactive picture book introduces kids to the dreamlike works of the 20th century Swiss-German master. Paul Klee’s art pieces come alive as enchanted animated scenes that children can explore with their own free imagination and creativity. Upon opening the app, users are greeted by a young boy, Cice, and Ku, his cat assistant. These two playful friends serve as guides to PK planet, a very special place that came to life thanks to the works of this great artist. Video iPad: 4.99

TotemUp is a building app aimed at children aged 2-5, helping to introduce math concepts such as counting and addition in a relaxed and fun environment. First, choose an egg to hatch into a crazy creature, then customize its features and add it to your totem stack. Gradually build up your stack using totem blocks of all shapes and sizes, until you have completed a stack of 10! Finally, shake your device and play with your creation, before watching the creatures tumble and roll when you explode the tower, ready to start over!
