Cars in Sandbox: Construction is an interactive car game app for preschool kids. After launching it, users could see eight different vehicles in the main screen – dump truck, dumper, tractor, grader, crawler-mounted excavator, telescopic handler, loader and crane. Kids need to explore all these different types of construction vehicles and their purposes.
While driving crawler-mounted excavator, they have to carry a few balls to drop them in the basket, with loader they need to pick the blocks of different shapes from a basket to place them in another one and other vehicles have other such missions. After achieving the assigned task with a vehicle, this app provides them with a few stars to motivate and the kids can move to the next vehicle.
These vehicles can be started with a long press and moved with fingers. They can also be explored by opening their doors and switching on the lights. The graphics and the animation are pretty and colorful, while the sound effects are realistic. As this app is aimed towards pre-school kids, it has enough tasks to keep them engaged for hours.
Cars in Sandbox: Construction has an area called For Parents to explain a few things about the app. However, it doesn’t have a Help section to guide them through the various parts of the app. The App Store description, screenshots, For Parents area and the illustrations at the sandbox could help, but a dedicated area with a few more details would always be handy.
Cars in Sandbox: Construction is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 4.2 or later. This app is already a popular one in its category. If you have kids at the age of 2 to 4, you can tryout this app.
