TGWK’s Review of “Tiny Garden” v1.2 (iOS)

Tiny Garden by Milo Creative is strictly a children’s game, mainly for children who are just beginning to learn the names of objects. Tiny Garden is a very simple game where all you do is click on an object in the garden and it makes it’s own unique sound. You may not think this is very useful but it is pretty entertaining for children that age. There is also a flash card mode that shows each object in the garden. When you press on it, it makes the same sound it makes in the garden. Now, the neatest part of this is that you can actually record your own sounds for each object. That means that if you want your child to learn the actual name of each object, you can record the name of the object yourself. This makes learning much more personal for the child because they’ll be able to hear your voice instead of some random stranger’s voice.

The graphics in the game are very simplistic but very appropriate for children as they are pretty bright and cheerful looking. Everything is bright and colorful so kids should really enjoy this. Audio wise, the default sounds are interesting but grow old fast. Luckily you can record your own sounds for each object so that’s a major plus.

All-in-all, Tiny Garden is a very good title for children that will help them learn about objects in a garden. The only real downside to this title is it’s limited scope. There are only a few objects to learn and only the one garden scene. I would have loved to have seen some different themes and not just the garden. This would also allow for more objects to learn. The concept however is great and love the recording feature.

Tiny Garden is available now in the App Store for $0.99. It works with all iOS devices.
