Build, Repair, and Drive

The Labo Train app combines a few really fun aspects into one app: kids will be able to build, decorate, and drive their own train as well as figure out how to fix the tracks and clear the way so the train can make it through. Their train will actually be delivering apples and the road is rather bumpy, which could result in losing some apples. This is when they'll need to take a look at the rocks and wood that can be used to fix the broken tracks and ensure a smooth ride.

Features of the Game

The Labo Train app contains all kinds of features and tools that make it possible for kids to be really creative. They can create trains by using the templates as they draw and then color them in, or they can just make their own train freehand. There are 46 different train templates to use and kids have a selection of 14 colors, which means they can really let their imagination run wild. When it comes to decorating their train there are 20 stickers and 15 different tires that will give their train a unique look. They can save as many trains to the garage as they like so that they don’t lose any of their hard work.

The other aspect of the game is driving the train and sometimes this is on a broken road. There are more than 40 sections of the road that are broken and kids will need to fix each section in order to make it through. This part of the game is great for their problem-solving skills.
