Tiggly Shapes is a 21st century take on the shape block toys that nearly all children played with while growing up. While children from the past put wooden shapes into wooden boxes, children nowadays can put virtual shapes onto the iPad, thus cutting out the need for wood and trees in general. The shapes are made using iPad-friendly/kid-friendly materials and interact with the tablet in the form of three apps. The apps are slightly more advanced and interactive than the wooden shape box games of yore. The three apps available for the game include a shape matching game, a drawing game and a puzzle game.

Tiggly Shapes sells for $30, including a download of the apps that go with the game. Tiggly Shapes could very well open the door for the modernization of classic children's games. It might not be long before someone creates a virtual rocking horse or an app for a game of ball in a cup.
