Working on the Railroad app review: train-themed fun

Reviews

Introduction

There is just something about trains that often seem to appeal to toddlers: the sounds, the lights, and the tracks all seem to capture their attention. The Working on the Railroad app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and is tailor-made for those little ones who just love trains. The app provides toddlers with an immersive experience with plenty of great animations, music, learning experiences, and games. This interactive experience is ideal for kids aged five and under.

An Impressive Offering

Only a small handful of games are impressive enough to win awards and recognition and the Working on the Railroad app has managed to do both. It's been awarded for its gameplay, creativity, and music, which paints a pretty clear picture of what you can expect with this download. As mentioned this is an interactive learning experience that is ideal for kids age five and under. The app uses the popular song "Working on the Railroad" as the central theme and kids will be able to sing, interact, and play with the scenes in the Free Play mode. There are no rules, no time clocks, no points, and basically no stress as kids can enjoy the app at their own pace in this mode.

Despite all its awards and recognition the app scores 3.5 out of five stars from users, which means there still seems to be room for improvement. Some parents feel it's a bit too simple for five-year-olds and is better suited to the younger age group. Its last update was over a year ago when new graphics, sounds, and music were added as well as a new learning game. There were other improvements and changes made at the time.

Keep Kids Entertained

There are all kinds of features in the Working on the Railroad app that are designed to keep kids happy and entertained. In the Train Builder game kids will be able to create their own custom train which really encourages their creativity. There are a variety of puzzles to solve, there is the Shapes and Letters game where they need to match the shapes with the letters, and there is a sing-a-long building game. Another cool aspect is that kids will earn stickers as they play and complete activities.
