Spur Design, a nationally recognized design and illustration studio, today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of PrestoBingo Colors 1.0, its new educational app developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. PrestoBingo Colors provides an introduction to colors for kids from preschool age on up! Art by award-winning illustrator Joyce Hesselberth guides kids through robot factories and butterfly fields as they master the intricacies of color identification. Basic colors like red, yellow and blue are mastered first, but then kids can move to intermediate colors such as magenta, gold and turquoise. Finally, in the advanced mode they can tackle crimson, ochre, cobalt and many more – over 80 colors in all!
PrestoBingo Color’s first set of colors covers basic identification for preschoolers: black, blue, brown, gray, green, orange, pink, purple, red, white and yellow. On each screen kids are asked to find objects of a certain color, with friendly narration to guide them if they become stuck. To add depth and intrigue, the app sometimes requires children to tilt their devices to find a hiding shape that’s just off the screen. Then, when the basics are mastered, the difficulty level can be changed. Magenta? Periwinkle? Plum? Developing a broad vocabulary to describe color becomes a fun game.
* Beginning, intermediate and advanced levels of color

The PrestoBingo Color app is inspired by creator Joyce Hesselberth’s lifelong love of color. “Colors have strong associations for kids. What colors do you see when you look around? You might see something green, but is it moss green, or kelly green or even chartreuse? Building a rich, descriptive vocabulary of colors is a way to involve kids in both language and art.”
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 5.1 or later
* 41.0 MB
