Great road safety app for tots; tilt control can be tricky.

Difficult to maneuver but good content

Good game, but the tilting mechanism is very difficult - even without fine motor delays.

BEE SAFE is a great app to teach kids necessary road and car safety skills. The animated scenarios help kids visualize situations and learn appropriate reactions to a variety of traffic situations. The app's timed scorekeeper is cleverly strategic because it rewards kids for making quick decisions about safety. This snap judgment approach can train kids to make instinctive, lifesaving decisions when road safety is the issue.

The app's reliance on the accelerometer can be limiting to those with fine motor skill delays or limited vision, but it also helps kids hone hand-eye coordination. The child voiceover is cute, but speaks in a British accent and uses some variant words like "zebra crossing" for "crosswalk," so it might be a little tricky for little ones to understand. Still, Bee Safe is a realistic simulation of what people of any age and ability face every day and is a fantastic way for kids to prepare for the road ahead.
