Overall Score: 85/100

version reviewed: 1.0.4

reviewed:


Best for: Interactive play, Attention & concentration, Creativity, Early math, Interaction

What it is and what you do with it: a set of educational mini-activities in a train-themed game.

Assemble your train (over 100 different engines and train cars to choose from) then watch your train run in one of the 10 'worlds', collect tickets and play mini-games (animals/matching, numbers, shapes, puzzles and more).

What we liked: the concept. Good set of train themed educational mini-games. Good variety of engines and train cars to choose from. No ads or other distracting features.

What we didn't like: we wish there was a little more variety in the activities (may get repetitive after some time).

Best for: Interactive play, Attention & concentration, Eye-hand coordination, Thinking & problem solving

What it is and what you do with it: a set of 4 train themed activities for younger kids:

e.g. you can 'see inside' a train and learn about the parts of a steam engine, design your train and drive it through various scenes or play a train engineer in a simple train simulator.

Extra feature: canvas/set of coloring pages.

What we liked: the concept. Good set of train themed games and activities. Fun illustrations and animations. No ads or other distracting features.

What we didn't like: the puzzle game may be too challenging for the target age group. Could have more educational features.

Overall Score: 77/100

Best for: Interactive play, Attention & concentration, Creativity, Eye-hand coordination

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

Add and move track tiles then add tunnels, bridges, switches, buildings, trees and other items.

Then run your train (up to 3 trains may be run at the same time) on the track, change train's speed, direction etc.

The tracks can be saved and edited later.

What we liked: the concept. Ease of use. Track/driver viewing option. Simple controls. No ads or other distracting features.

What we didn't like: a bit limited number of trains and props to choose from. Difficult to control more than one train at a time.
