Mia – The Happy Helper is an interactive iPad game that takes kids on a journey filled with colorful characters and fun things to do.
Developed by Kutoka Interactive Inc, Mia – The Happy Helper is a wonderful combination of entertainment and education.
Concept and Functionality:
The story of Mia involves running errands for the owner of the general store she works at. Mia is ecstatic that she’s been tasked with important duties, but she needs extra help in order to complete them successfully.
Mia – The Happy Helper includes a wide variety of activities for children to complete, including counting and solving puzzles.
This fun game aims to help kids practice and strengthen a variety of skills such as: logical reasoning, problem-solving, fine motor skills, concentration, and observation.
One of the things I like the most about Mia – The Happy Helper is that kids won’t feel like they’re being forced to learn something. Games and puzzles are fun and highly interactive, so they’ll actually enjoy playing them.
Mia The Happy Helper iPad Game
Along with being a terrific learning experience, Mia – The Happy Helper includes fantastic graphics and very clear narrative. Instructions for each activity are provided audibly by Mr. Maurice (Mia’s boss), so I definitely recommend using headphones with the app.
It’s worth noting that we reviewed the Android version of Mia – The Happy Helper on our sister site, AndroidAppsReview.com, a month ago and it received a glowing 4.5-star rating on the Android platform as well.
Mia – The Happy Helper is loaded with fun activities for kids to complete, and also includes two different levels of difficulty -“kind of easy” and “not so easy”.
We are big fans of being able to adjust the difficultly level since it makes the game accessible to a broader range of ages and development levels.
It also means that kids can grow into Mia – The Happy Helper if they start playing with the app at a young age.
Also, Mia – The Happy Helper does not include any advertisements or external links to social media (in areas that are accessible by children).
Parents, however, will see the option to purchase the full version of the app as it’s located on the menu, as well as the settings page.
A numeric code must be entered on the screen in order to access special areas of the app. While this provides a basic level of security, it’s not exactly failsafe.
Mia – The Happy Helper is available to download from the App Store for free and is compatible with iPad. Parents can optionally upgrade to the full version of the app for $2.99, which doubles the amount of content that kids can play through.
Personally I believe the full version of the app is worth every penny considering how much content is available.
Overall, Mia – The Happy Helper is a must-have app for parents who are looking for an educational and fun way to keep their child entertained.
Kids will be excited to explore Mia’s world and help her complete tasks along the way.
Mia – The Happy Helper requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPad. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this article.
