Curious George Town App Review + Prize Pack Giveaway
Our kids are always on our phones or iPads playing games. As a parent, I prefer our kids play games that are both educational and fun and I’m always excited when I discover a new app for them to explore. Let me introduce you to the Curious George’s Town App! Curious George’s Town App for the iPad and iPhone was developed for preschool to kindergarten-aged children.
The Curious George Town App aims to teach children smart saving and spending habits while engaging kids in creating a virtual world complete with roller coasters, dinosaurs and farm animals. Children accomplish real-world and in-app challenges and earn virtual coins they can use to purchase a variety of items to create their very own town. Based on the principle of deferred gratification, the app introduces the concepts of strategic planning and careful spending in order to accomplish a goal.
The Curious George Town App features a unique reward chart that parents and caregivers can customize by assigning a specific value to a list of real-world tasks, such as cleaning up toys. Kids can also supplement their stockpile of virtual savings by tackling in-app educational games such as alphabetizing books at Curious George’s library and collecting the correct items at the grocery store. Guided and narrated by the convivial Man with the Yellow Hat, the fun and engaging app also reinforces concepts like correct spelling, reading and matching.
My 5 year old really enjoyed playing the Curious George Town App! It was easy for him to understand and he didn’t really need any guidance when playing the game. In fact, he kept showing me what he built and what new item he purchased. This is definitely a good app for you to have on your iPhone or iPad for kids!
