Best for: Interactive play, Creativity, Eye-hand coordination

What it is and what you do with it: a virtual car set for kids.

Add and move various road pieces, flyovers and intersections to create the street layout for your mini-city.

Add buildings, trees, ponds and a variety of fixtures like fire hydrants, lamps, traffic cones etc. to complete your design.

Finally add some mini-cars and enjoy looking at them driving around your city and bumping into each other.

You can also switch to the 'driver view' and try to control the cars with a steering wheel.

What we liked: the concept. Good variety of cars and building pieces to choose from. Fun 3d graphics. Many little details like working brake lights. Ease of use. No ads or other distracting features.

What we didn't like: no presets/ready made designs. Cars in the 'driver view mode' are a bit difficult to control.

Best for: Interactive play, Interaction, Thinking & problem solving

What is it and what do you do with it: a set of interactive scenes with a variety of vehicles (tow truck, dump truck, police car, fire engine and more).

Drive Tom the Tow Truck around the city and help other vehicles on your way: take them to through car wash, inflate punctured tires, use a wrench to fix loose wheels etc.

After you finish your work you can take Tom for a treat (if you happen to meet the Ice Cream Van on your way).

What we liked: the concept. Simple illustrations and animations. Ease of use. No ads or other distracting features. Good for younger kids who like to play with toy vehicles.

What we didn't like: limited educational value. Feature set is a bit limited.
