Columbus, Ohio • Monday, June 26, 2017

COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 19, 2017 – Highlights for Children is now adding Highlights Preschool Puzzle Town to its list of puzzle apps for preschoolers that help little ones think and learn through play!

Perfect for young children ages 3 and up, Highlights Preschool Puzzle Town delivers 5 new activities every week, including Highlights Hidden Pictures® puzzles, Look and Look Again scenes, Mazes, Match Maker challenges and Picture Mix-ups.

As little ones solve the colorful puzzles, they’ll unlock bonus mini-games, as well as collect characters, accessories and more that let them personalize their towns. Plus, they’ll build vocabulary, cognitive and early math skills as they go!

Highlights Preschool Puzzle Town uses Adaptive Learning Technology to tailor activities to children’s growing skills, increasing puzzle complexity as kids play. “Highlights Preschool Puzzle Town understands that the learning path of every child is personal," says Christine French Cully, Highlights Editor in Chief. “The app is a fun way to motivate kids to sharpen skills because it offers an individualized game experience every time kids play. The activities stay fresh, with just the right level of challenge.”

Developed in partnership with Colto, an award-winning creative gaming studio, Highlights Preschool Puzzle Town is quality screen time that helps little ones become their best selves: curious, creative, caring and confident. “We’re excited to once again partner with the Colto team, who shares our vision of making learning fun through play, reaching children both in the U.S. and globally,” says Sanjay Patel, Vice President of Digital for Highlights.
