Love it! It took a while for my 4 year old to figure out the symbols of what to do to make each element. It would be nice if you could connect information about each element (along with the name). I had to bookmark a Periodic Table so I can show my daughter what it is she's actually doing. On the Galaxy S4 it's a drag to have to move all around the table to see what she's done. It would be great if you could make the table appear full-screen and be able to navigate from that.
3 and 7 year olds love Toca Boca We have quite a few of their apps on our iPad I'm so glad to see more on Google play. This is not a traditional science lesson so don't expect that. It's an intro for kids where they can mix things up, electrify, heat them cool them and just have fun.
Kinda Fun as a toy for toddlers Would be so much better if there was some grounding to reality. There's no logic to why I put put carbon block in a centrifuge and it randomly changes into a different element. There's no text at all. I get it your supposed to experiment but there are random icons appearing on the table that I have no idea what they even mean. 3 stars if they at least update the app with the history behind each element which I just found on their website.
The Best! I'm 24, without children, and even I love this game! Lol so fun to experiment, so many different elements. I wish there was more of a Manual/instructions with the app. I agree that the box on the top right shelf remains a mystery... lol I love that they are modeled after the real elements, but I do wish that when you clicked on them they spoke their elemental name. Not baby gobbledygook. Lol
It's okay... My 4 year old begged me to buy this game. Glad I did because he loves it. My only problem is that the elements aren't named. I had to print out a kids periodic table for him so he can learn as well as have fun. For $3 you can at least name the elements. How hard is that really?
So far well loved! My 2 and 4 year old fight over who gets to play first! As an adult even I find the game fun. My 4 year old has said he wishes you could have a way for the elements to "play" with each other. But over all its great and I am very glad I got it!
