What it is: an app that will help you turn a physical toy vehicle (e.g. LEGO car) into an interactive toy.

What you do with it:please note: although you can use this app as a standalone app (just play with the buttons etc), it works best in the 'physical' environment. Construct your vehicle (from cardboard, LEGO etc) in a way that you can place the device with its screen facing upwards (see http://www.makegotoys.com/ for some ideas). Play with one of the vehicles: a sports car (touch the 'start' button to start the engine, refuel the tank, move the device for engine noises), an ice-cream van (serve the ice-creams and collect money) and a boat (start/stop the engine, feed the ducks, fix the holes in the boat).

What we liked: excellent concept of using the iPhone/iPod as an enhancement for a physical toy. Nice simple design, easy operation, humor, the 'fun factor'.

What we didn't like: only 3 vehicles, limited number of interactive items.

Please note: using this app on the iPad will require 4 times more material to build your vehicle than the iPhone/iPod version ;)
