Bogos Good Habits Review – A “Puzzling” Way of Teaching Good Habits (iOS)

bogos_iconAs a parent, one of the things you want to teach your child is that of good habits, whether it be to say please and thank you, or to say hello when they greeted by others. We try to instill good habits early on and it’s always good to drill those lessons in on a daily basis. With the app Bogos Good Habits, these lessons are further emphasized through game and is a good way to teach these habits when you aren’t around.

Bogos Good Habits is basically a jigsaw puzzle game in which the end result of solving the puzzle is a message about a good habit in the form of a rhyme. For example, the first puzzle brings the message, “Wake up early morning with a smile. Truth is, we would love to see it all the while.” You also get lovely gems like this, “Exercise every day. Be strong and healthy as you may.” Basically the rest of the game goes like that. Complete a puzzle, get an uplifting quote on good habits. On the puzzle end of things, the puzzles re fairly easy for young children and they’ll be able to challenge themselves by seeing how quickly they can complete each one. They aren’t terribly hard though and can be completed within a matter of seconds.

Graphically, the game has some pretty good illustrations for each good habit. They really help to illustrate each habit.

Overall, Bogos Good Habits is a decent game for children. The puzzles are simple, even for really young children but the main focus of the game really is to just dish out quotes on what makes a good habit. There are 50 of these so the app should be able to at least occupy your child for a while as they work their way through all of them. There is also some replayability as they’ll be able to try and beat their fastest times on each puzzle but for the most part, they’ll probably just go through the app once or twice. The app is free though so at going though the game just once is perfectly acceptable as long as they get something out of it, mainly some good habits.
