    "When I was in school, science was always boring, a lot of memorization and you rarely got to experience what the different elements would do. I thought part of this app was good with its cartoons that kids would like to create different elements, but it wasn't so goofy that adults wouldn't like it. On the other side, it limited the elements you could create, it also didn't name the elements so it really lost a large learning potential. I found this app would be good used in conjunction with other materials, but I didn't think it was very good as a standalone teaching aid."

    "I downloaded this thinking it said "Taco Builders" and expected something involving food. Instead, I found a very useful tool to help teach my kids. They love creating their own world, it really inspired them! In fact, they might even love it too much. They've started skipping meals and school to build new worlds, but as long as they're learning it's alright with me!"

    "Actually not that bad! I was hoping to get my son more into learning about our country, and this app has been helping! I can already quiz him a bit on which state goes where, and state capitols! Do recommend."

    "A great application kids can can use to have fun and learn about the planets at the same time. I don't think it is appropriate for the youngers kids. Many levels and characters means the game will always appear different."

    "My kids hated this. They didn't get why they had to keep balancing equations and said they'd rather just do their homework assignments. I don't know; it looked pretty neat to me. I wish I'd of had something like it as a kid. Maybe mine are just weird? Little rotten apples didn't fall far from the tree, then, which makes it so weird they didn't love this."

    "if you want your child to be absorbed this game will do that to them for hours. I have even seen adults and groups of grownups at gatherings playing this game. So yea this is a great game for both kids and adults. I have it on my phone but have not given it to my 1 year old to play with yet since he drops things i dont want him to break my phone."

    "This suggestion is a fail. Minecraft is far from educational. My husband wanted to know why graphics ahave come so far yet kids want to play these horrid games."

    "The graphics for this app are truly beautiful and so diverse. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this one, and your kids will have so much fun creating over and over again. It's a wonderful app just to have fun with, and it would be great for boys and girls (and adults)."

    "How can you go wrong with PBS Kids? Sesame Street, and many other favorites over the years continue to teach kids of all ages everything they need to know, not just on TV but now also on phones, of course assuming your children have access to them."
