Kids will have a blast navigating their Thinkrolls through a series of obstacles in brightly patterned mazes. Each chapter introduces a new object with unique physical properties which kids discover through hands-on manipulation. Little players encounter and use to their advantage force, acceleration, buoyancy, heat, elasticity and gravity to get their Thinkrolls where they need to go.

Thinkrolls has all the trappings of popular platformer and physics puzzlers, but it incorporates a wealth of educational content. It appeals to children’s natural curiosity and challenges them with gameplay that fosters creativity and out-of-the-box thinking. The 104 easy and 103 harder levels organized into 8 chapters gradually build upon successive lessons to strengthen observation, reasoning, problem solving, spatial cognition and memory.

There's no failure here. As kids try different combinations to clear a path through the maze, they intuitively learn through trial and error what works. There's also a strong element of executive function. Kids must plan out their moves in advance, use precise timing and rely on their memory to reunite their Thinkroll friends. Parents can virtually see the wheels spinning in their children’s heads as they orchestrate their moves.


Biscuit - Kids get accustomed to the fine motor skills needed to navigate the mazes as they munch biscuits to clear a path.

Crate - Any child who has pushed a chair up to the kitchen counter in order to reach the biscuit jar will know what to do with the crates.

Balloon - Buoyancy gets added to the mix as kids burst balloons on spikes.

Rock - Kids get a crash course in Newtonian physics as they discover that dropping a heavy, dense boulder will generate enough force to break through cracked ground.

Jelly - Bouncing on beds isn't necessary when there’s a springy jelly available to launch the Thinkroll out of valleys and up onto peaks.

Fire - The crackling sound of flames will alert kids to a burning hazard ahead, but ice blocks put out the fire.

Lift - The culmination of everything kids have discovered and processed so far has them coordinating all the elements as they synchronize movements of two different lifts.

Bonus - Theory of Everything in action! Combination of all elements and forces in even more challenging puzzles

A great game that encourages children to think logically in order to problem-solve for their little charters. Both my daughers love it! We've had think rolls for almost 4 years now and its been great. No technical problems with any phones or tablet over the years. And my youngest has one of those cheap o phones. Cute little circular cylinder all characters to collect and unlocked as they go through more challenging levels. The other think rolls apps are good too but this has been the favorite.

Hi, I have had this app since I was 6 years old,andI still enjoy it! I would really recamand this app for people that like to play games. Through experience on other games I get sucked in too far, but this game lets parents not have to worry it makes your brain think ( unlike other games sucked in!) And what my point is, that I like this game alotand I hope you do to!

This game is great with my 2yo. Would be five stars but it doesn't support fullscreen immersive mode which is a huge problem because kids will hit the back button. Additionally needs to be more forgiving on swipes that start near but not exactly on the piece hitboxes.
