While many games on the Switch are kid-friendly, few are explicitly educational, and even fewer aimed at the under six crowd. Little Shopping is a counting game for toddlers and preschoolers to teach and foster counting skills. It’s out today on Switch for $1.49. Best of all, there are no ads or microtransactions.
In Little Shopping, your preschooler can shop at four different kid-friendly stores, such as grocery, pet, and toy. They have a shopping list to identify which products they need to buy. Then they’ll need to pay the appropriate amount in coins. The touch screen controls let your little one drag the items they or coins they need.
Using coins for counting is a tool that kids will learn throughout their early years in Kindergarten and first grade.
Little Shopping was developed by Polish company Baked Games and published by Ultimate Games S.A., a Polish producer best known for Ultimate Fishing Simulator. Baked Games has developed a number of kid-friendly mobile titles, including Guess Word, Theater Tales, and Pet Care.
Little Shopping is available today on Switch. It’s also available on the Polish App Store and Google Play digital mobile stores. Naturally, it’s rated E for Everyone.
