Curious George Train Adventures App Review
Curious George, the perennial favorite character of children the world over, is up to his old tricks. In this adventure, George accidentally drives a supply train to get parts to workers building a theme park. Along the way, he must contend with numerous obstacles and problems that threaten to spill supplies from his train. The app challenges young users to solve many types of problems as they help George drive his train.

This app provides great experiences for young children in the realms related to STEM learning (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Curious George’s train ride to take supplies to the builders in the new theme park is disrupted by various obstacles and challenges along the way, and to keep the train rolling, children will have to do quite a bit of problem-solving.
Along the way, George runs into various obstacles that are likely to jiggle supplies off of his train, such as steep hills that require players to slow the train, a teeter-totter, piles of things on the tracks, and even a bridge that needs to be raised before the train can cross. Each problem demonstrates physics responses that would happen in real life if the player does not solve them correctly. For example, running the train into a pile of pineapples will stop the train with a bump and knock some of the cargo overboard. The number of stars awarded at the end of each level is dependent on how much of the cargo arrives safely.
This app provides appropriate and fun challenges for the target age group. George is a motivating character in the first place, and the ability to control what happens to him on his adventure is hugely satisfying. Preschoolers and young elementary-aged children will have a lot of fun with this adventure of his.
Curious George Train Adventures includes ten levels of fun for $1.99 in the App Store. There are additional worlds available as an in-app purchase, but kids are likely to enjoy this one for quite a few play sessions.
This app is very child-friendly.
