Wood Puzzle Maze HD for iPad

Reviews by other OT’s are always great as we each work with different clients, places and tools. Here is a review from Carol Hesch, OT with school system experience and apps in her OT iTool Kit! Thank you Carol for your review!

Wood Puzzle Maze HD ($1.99) is an app for the iPad from Tropisounds that offers unique and interactive mazes for the elementary aged child (K+).  I like this app so much it has earned a spot on my iPad home page….not stuffed into a folder. As a OT, I like this app because it works on “visual tracking, spatial visualization, fine motor skills, problem solving and long-term concentration” according to the App Store description.

 The home screen offers 17 different puzzles – 11 animal and fruit/veggie themed plus three Halloween and three Christmas.

The mazes begin simply, like matching the animal with the food they eat…

And progress to more and more difficult – requiring increased concentration, problem solving and patience!


The only drawback to the app is the music. It can get a bit annoying, however, the developers recently added an update that allows the music to be turned off!

Check out this app for enhancing your therapy sessions.
