Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Mega Bloks Playground is a cute, age-appropriate app for preschoolers. The setting is a playground, complete with swing, seesaw, slides, hot-air balloon, rowboat, and piles of Mega Bloks to build with. The characters at the playground are a little boy and a little girl who can walk around, use the equipment, and build with the blocks. When a child collects three piles of blocks, they will build something, like a plane or car. In addition to the iPhone/iPod touch app, Mega Blocks HD is available for the iPad for $1.99.

Is it any good?


MEGA BLOKS PLAYGROUND doesn't have a lot of substance, but it's colorful and full of things young children love. Toddlers and preschoolers will most likely enjoy exploring the app to see what everything does. Other than building Mega Bloks statues (which aren't all that interesting once complete), there isn't much replay value. Fortunately, it's not a very expensive app.
