Video

What it is: an interactive movie (about 20 minutes long) about a pair of young 'scientists' trying to build and fly a space rocket. Contains three simple educational activities: tracing, color mixing and sorting + extra information about planets and stars.

What you do with it: at the end of each segment of the movie listen to the instructions and complete the task: trace the parts of the space rocket, mix colors to obtain 'rocket fuel, sort the rocket pieces (the difficulty level increases with each 'play'). After the rocket is complete, try to navigate it through space and learn 'facts' about the objects you pass along the way.

What we liked: the concept, simple storyline, the characters, professional 3D animation, sounds/sound backgrounds/voice acting, overall quality of the app. The child is 'immersed' in the movie ('turn taking', narration, the activities complement the storyline).

What we didn't like: the last activity (flying the rocket through space: the rocket is difficult to control, the 'journey' is a bit chaotic). The other activities range from very good and engaging (color mixing) to rather basic (the sorting activity). Some parts of the app couldn't be evaluated in this version (the Parents Section).
