Play and family time, school, toys and books all play a part in childhood memories of your life or your child's life. One of my favorite past-times was working on mazes. They were only the pencil and paper (black and white) kind, yet still I remember the great feeling of satisfaction as I worked my way through them. Any wonder why I am regressing to childhood with Roxie's a-MAZE-ing Vacation Adventure? This colorful and exciting iPad maze game has been created by Roxie Munro who is the renowned author/illustrator of 35 books for children. Roxie creates artwork by several mediums including oils and watercolors using cityscapes often as a theme. This explains the outstanding job, with great attention paid to engaging children, of Roxie's a-MAZE-ing Vacation Adventure.

This unique, visual and hands-on app is all about taking a journey. You may travel the maze in many ways such as by car, walking, flying, skiing and rafting. And all of this is done through 16 wonderfully entertaining screens of fun. The brilliant colors and absorbing material is a gold mine of educational entertainment for kids. The maze is only part of your exciting adventure though! Along the way, you will discover letters, numbers, penguins and tons of other cool items. Use your finger to move your car or chosen vehicle around. The amount of details and animation in each screen is tremendous. Enjoy waterfalls, parks, traffic lights, trains, bridges and so much more. As you fly your plane, circle over the fair with carousel and ferris wheel, boats chugging through the water, animals and skiers on the slope. You are truly making your way through an entire world of adventure!

Just like in the old-fashioned mazes, you will hit dead ends where your child will have to figure out an alternate route. There will be new and different items to seek every time you play. Plus you collect stars for your efforts all throughout your adventure. The app is perfect for children of all ages because no reading is required, visual cues are all that's needed. (In fact, the clever simplicity reminds me of Richard Scarry's Busytown where the vivid sights and colors are irresistible to kids). Mazes, counting, seeking and self-navigation are all practical lessons that will benefit and amuse young ones. Charming sound tracks, music and effects are employed to fit all areas of this journey. Finally, don't forget to enjoy the delightful drawings throughout your travels. The fun is non-stop in Roxie's a-MAZE-ing Vacation Adventure.
