Are you ready for another fun app from Avokiddo? Today, Avokiddo has released Thinkrolls, an educational app with 18 different characters for kids 3-8. Thinkrolls offer two modes: Easy is for kids 3-5 and a hard mode for kids aged 5-8.
You start with 6 Thinkrolls and unlock new characters as you progress. There are 7 different chapters each with 10 to 14 levels. You must progress through each chapter to get to the next level. The chapters include:
- Cookie: Kids get accustomed to the fine motor skills needed to navigate the mazes as they munch cookies to clear a path.
- Crate: Any child who has pushed a chair up to the kitchen counter in order to reach the cookie 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 the 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.
- Elevator: The culmination of everything kids have discovered and processed so far has them coordinating all the elements as they synchronize movements of two different elevators.
Navigate your Thinkrolls through a series of obstacles in brightly patterned mazes. Each chapter introduces a new object with unique physical properties that 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.
I let my 7-year-old play this and he was addicted. He got the hang of what he was supposed to do to make it through the levels and enjoyed the challenges of how to make it to the end.
