That sneaky Captain Hook is after the treasure! Jake and his friends need get there before Captain Hook and Smee. In this game, children learn about shapes and patterns with the characters from Disney’s Jake and the Neverland Pirates. This preschool game has tracing, matching, and patterns presented in a storybook format. During the adventure they can earn gold doubloons, buy pirate gear, and take pictures of themselves for a personalized dancing puppet.

This app is very basic in it’s content. There are a few simple games to play with the intent to teach shapes and patterns. It accomplishes it’s goal without being too complicated and is very child friendly. The tracing on this app is a bit more lenient than on other apps which makes it easier for less experienced children.The animation and voices are identical to the television series, so those children who are obsessed with Jake and the Neverland Pirates will not be disappointed.
