Summertime is here, and that means day and road trips for my family. I usually download fun app games for the kids to play while we are on the road, so I don’t have to hear “I’m bored” or the famous “When are we getting there?” questions from the kids. They require FUN apps that keep their attention, and I want apps that are educational, so at least they are learning while playing on the phone. We have recently been introduced Noddy Toyland Detective – Let’s Investigate, and it fits my qualifications to download it for the kids.
It is Fun and Educational!
Kuato and Dreamworks Animation, teamed up to create this app that is based on the Netflix “Noddy Toyland Detective” popular TV series. Join Noddy as Toyland’s most famous detective in an adventure filled with storytelling, learning, and creative fun! Noddy Toyland Detective is filled with learning games that engage problem-solving, creativity, and storytelling. Kids can solve mysteries that make them think about Who, What, and Where when they are solving the mysteries. And each time a child solves a mystery in Noddy Toyland Detective, a storybook is generated from their play session for you to read together!
After solving the mystery then the kids can watch/read a storyline about their mystery they solved. My kids love when we read the stories together so they can show their accomplishments with their mom. Parents will love this new app because it contains no advertising and has no in-app purchases. I’m thrilled when I see my kids playing with Noddy Toyland Detective because they are building skills like problem-solving, they need to follow clues, memorize patterns, use word comprehension, build vocabulary, and much more. Parents, children, and teachers helped with designing this, so you know it’s a fun and educational app all tied up in one.
Another cool feature is the passcode-protected ‘Grown Ups Corner,’ where you can choose the length of time your child plays the game, receive email notifications when your child has created a new case for you to read.
Plus the app is well worth the $2.99 on iTunes or $2.49 on Google Play
