We like apps that kids can learn from as well as enjoy. So I looked forward to testing out Nickelodeon’s Blaze and the Monster Machines Dinosaur Rescue App ($2.99) which exposes preschoolers to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts as they travel through Dino Valley with Blaze and AJ.
Note: I received a code to download the app for review purposes. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.
My son loves dinos, solving puzzles and of course being rewarded. So the Dinosaur Rescue App was a bit hit with him. The graphics and style of the game was well done so kids can visually enjoy the game. We both like that it featured characters from the Blaze and the Monster Machines series.
I recorded a demo with my son playing the game so you see.
Blaze and the Monster Machines Dinosaur Rescue App encourages children to develop problem-solving strategies and complete physics-based puzzles by using various tools from Blaze to rescue his friend Zeg’s lost dinosaur eggs from dangerous situations.
The app features three different and exciting locations within Dino Valley, including the jungle, rocky plateaus and the volcano. Each location contains eggs and a hidden prehistoric gem.
Using simple engineering machines and tools, including wheels, pulleys, levers, mirrors and solar panels, kids can experiment with height, weight, trajectory, and adhesion to retrieve the eggs and gems.
Nickelodeon has launched more than 30 preschool apps including top-performing titles like PAW Patrol Rescue Run (problem-solving and social skills), Blaze and the Monster Machines (STEM), Team Umizoomi (math), Bubble Guppies Animal School Day (science), and the award-winning Nick Jr. Draw and Play (creativity and imagination).
All Nickelodeon apps are available in the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
