A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Lightly educational: Clues and trivia-based questions can lead to thinking critically, applying information, making conclusions, spatial reasoning.
Ease of Play
Very easy to play. Clues given first, then three multiple choice answers from which to choose.

Is It Any Good?
This fun, lightly educational trivia game may be a great choice for a road trip or family game night. Cramble challenges users to think big, and small. The facts ("If you ate 10,647 light bulbs, you would gain the weight of one trampoline") and questions ("How many cucumbers would you have to stack up to match the height of one bulldozer?") in both the Quiz game and the Compare feature are silly, but they also make players think through factors such as weight, size, height, and more.
This app isn't high-tech and it doesn't dig deep into the hows or whys of the answers. There are no animated graphics or real images of the objects and animals in questions, just chalk drawings. If players want to learn more about the (often surprising) answers, they'll need to look elsewhere for details; Cramble doesn't provide anything beyond right or wrong. But for $0.99, it may be just enough of a conversation starter to spark kids' interest in learning more on their own.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
