Fun Early Cause and Effect and Visual Stumulation App

In trying to locate an old musical fav app of mine (Magic Fingers, odd name but cause and effect with classical music, free), I found a cute early app for visualstimulation and cause and effect from Finland called Onni and Ilona Animals for IOS. 3 animals are available in the free version and all 12 cost $3.99. Very nice color contrast, not too visually busy, great for visual tracking, and early use of hands or a switch.

Here is a video from the company that does not show the baby intersecting with the app, but a cutie nonetheless.
