Review:

If you need a way for your children to enjoy the snow that does not involve hours of nearly endless searching for missing mittens and scarves, then Snow Doodle by Shoe the Goose is for you. In this app, children can select a pre-formed snowman design or create one from scratch using a variety of shapes and tools (e.g., square block, rectangular block, pail). After creating their snowman, children can decorate it with paints, hats, mittens, clothes, accessories, lights, bells, buttons, and even text. And, they can even turn their creation into a virtual puzzle. The possibilities are nearly endless and provide hours of warm, dry entertainment.

Our reviewers are already fans of Shoe the Goose, the creators of Cupcake Doodle, Cookie Doodle, and Gingerbread Doodle, just to name a few. So, it came as no surprise that they enjoyed Snow Doodle so much. It has been a great compromise recently as so many parts of the U.S. have had several inches of snow outside, along with wind chills and ice that are quite prohibitive of building a "real" snowman. In addition to how much fun children can have with this app, it also hones developmental skills such as hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, creativity, imagination, and vocabulary.
