Curious George’s Town App Review

| September 13, 2013 | 0 Comments

I honestly think my kids use my phone more thtn I do! That’s perfectly ok as long as they are learning something useful.

Curious George’s Town is a fun educational app perfect for every little builder. Instructive games allow children to earn coins, learn about saving, and eventually purchase items to build a town. With the guidance of The Man With The Yellow Hat, kids can sort vegetables in the market, learn the alphabet at the library, feed the animals at the pet store, and help recycle at the town park.

In addition to the coins children earn in each game, parents can use a customizable reward chart to set external tasks for their children like setting the table or cleaning up their room. Parents can then reward their children with additional coins when they’ve completed their task. Curious George’s Town encourages kids to save their coins in order to buy items such as dinosaurs, circus tents, roller coasters, and farm animals.

Curious George’s Town teaches children to delay spending (deferred gratification) in order to accomplish a goal (building their town). As children defer gratification, they learn to plan activities, set goals, and make strategic choices. And buy dinosaurs, of course.
