If your child thinks that Puzzle Pop by Duck Duck Moose is too easy, have her keep playing. The animated puzzles depict a charming cast of characters in fun habitats. Children see the completed picture, and then the screen fractures into two, four, ten, or more pieces. There's a dish running away with a spoon, a snake-charming mouse, and a sky filled with colorful kites. Depending on the complexity of the challenge, children will have anywhere from ten seconds to several minutes to put the pieces in their proper arrangement. In the higher levels, new obstacles appear. In one owl scene, the lights dim and the scene blackens periodically. Another scene is set underwater. The animated fish move from piece to piece, making it tricky to fit the pieces together. Kids will get a real mental workout trying to solve all twenty-seven levels. If they get frustrated, they can use the menu to navigate to easier levels.
