Fiete Puzzle – Kids Games with Animals
by Ahoiii Entertainment

Fiete Puzzle is anything but an ordinary puzzle. With the help of breathtaking camera movements the children can puzzle themselves into 9 exciting puzzle motifs. They can discover Fiete in gorgeous picture book landscape, in the zoo, on the construction site or on the farm. At each camera stop the litte ones have to recognize where the displayed puzzle parts fit. And after each finished puzzle the children can once again move through the puzzle to interact with the animals and figures.

Subtractions with Eggs provides a simple way to learn subtraction by regrouping. This app uses hatched birds to help kids understand subtraction, and questions are refreshed dynamically to generate plenty of practice questions.
