Play a game of Pic-A-Boo!



Pic-A-Boo is a free app by Pic-A-Boo Baby that offers a fun twist on peek-a-boo. At first glance this app is inline with other similar peek-a-boo apps out there like the Peek-a-Boo series by Night & Day Studios. The premise of Pic-A-Boo is simple, you tap on the screen and you reveal the object hiding behind the hands, barn door, blanket, or doll house.



The game comes free with Cute Animals and Happy Robots to play pic-a-boo with. The remaining pictures are available as a in-app purchase of $1.99 and include over 40   images in 6 different sets of fun peekaboo games including farm and zoo animals with real sounds, illustrated eggs in a variety of uniforms, happy robots, illustrated animals and sweet stars.



The best part of the app, which is included as part of the in-app purchases, is the ability to import your own and create your own “Boos”. With the ability to import your own pictures you are free to change it up a bit and target pronouns by adding pictures of yourself , family members, and the child as well as working on things like verbs or articulation.

The ability to record your voice is somewhat limited as you are only able to record the sound that plays each time the object that is hiding is revealed which could be fun for younger children.
