All Aboard the Learning Train

It's time to hop aboard the learning train with the Animal Train Preschool Adventure app. With this app kids will be working on their reading skills thanks to realistic sounds, incredible illustrations, and activities. The train will be traveling through a variety of terrain with different animals. The settings include such themes as the desert, farm, jungle, polar regions, sea, and more. There are over 40 animals for kids to learn about and they will be able to work on their reading too. Additional areas this app can help with include their memory skills, animal recognition, and even their fine motor skills.

The best iPad apps for toddlers

Its last update was over a year ago when additional content was added. At this point it could certainly benefit from more content/updates especially considering the app isn't free. It has 3.5 out of five stars from users who have made comments on the fabulous graphics, the ease of use, and the fact that is manages to capture the attention of young kids.

The Child-Friendly Experience

The Animal Train Preschool Adventure offers a truly child-friendly experience so you know your young ones will be able to play and actually learn from it. In fact parents can head over to the settings menu and customize the gaming experience so that it matches their child's skill level. This ensures they enjoy the right level of challenge. Speaking of challenge the game actually features nine different levels of difficulty, each one progresses in difficulty. There is constant praise and motivation given to kids in order to keep them on-track and feeling confident.

The activity game features kids being asked to listen or read the name of the animal given, then find it and put it on the train. I find the graphics are cute and are age-appropriate but I definitely think additional content is needed.
