Kids just love pretending to do things that grown-ups do and pretending to drive the car is no exception. I used to love it when the girls would build cars out of the couch cushions or cardboard boxes and “drive” to Grandma’s house. Driving toys have been around for a long time and you’ll find quite a few on the app market, like Kids Toy Car Game Simulator.
One simulator feature unique to this particular app is the ability to pop the hood and check the fluids. Kids can pull out the dipstick to see their oil level. If its low, add a quart. With a finger tap its easy to take off the caps for all the fluid and pour in more. I really like this feature, maybe I should use it as a reminder game for my girls that are now teen drivers :).
After testing the app in our family, I think it is best suited for young preschoolers, Kindergartner’s will probably tire of it quickly. For me the sound effects got old fast. The windows have an awful screech and not all the preset radio options were to my liking, but that’s just personal opinion. Its an easy fix though, I turned the sound off on the main menu. Because it has so many options to explore kids seem to really like the app. Note sure I’d spend $2 on it though.
This app is also available for Android on Google Play.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of the app for review purposes.
