Busy Shapes 2 offers a fun and enjoyable learning experience for children from the age of 4, exercising important developmental skills through engaging gameplay.
Busy Shapes 2 is a 3D object manipulation game in which children navigate objects through the environment to reach a goal, bringing them to the next level. This is achieved through the use of tools, such as buttons, springs, bombs, moving platforms, and secret passageways. Obstacles will provide challenges that can be overcome using strategies and solutions that the child will learn and develop as they play. These challenges are designed to nurture and sharpen a variety of educational skills, such as spatial reasoning, coordination, agility, and critical thinking.
As the continuation of its highly successful predecessor, Busy Shapes, within Busy Shapes 2 the team at Edoki Academy have improved upon the strategies and systems that made Busy Shapes so popular.

A Proven Pedagogical Approach:
Like its predecessor, Busy Shapes 2 is inspired by Swiss clinical psychologist, Jean Piaget’s pioneering theory of cognitive development. Piaget believed that children in their earliest stage of development learn best by exploring and manipulating the world around them. The award winning prequel to this app, Busy Shapes, has over 1,000,000 downloads. As the second game of the series, Busy Shapes 2 is a continuation and evolution of all the things that made Busy Shapes so popular and enjoyable. Busy Shapes & Busy Shapes 2 are part of a specific collection of critical thinking apps developed by Edoki Academy. Crazy Gears and Busy Water are also part of this collection and have both won Awards.
Spatial Skills for Success:
Spatial skills predict a young person’s achievement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It’s the mental feat that architects and engineers perform when they design buildings. The capacity that permits a chemist to contemplate the three-dimensional structure of a molecule, or a surgeon to navigate the human body.
