The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Step-by-step instructions demonstrate how to draw 2D and 3D shapes. Then kids can copy other designs or make their own. Kids learn terms for figures and how to draw them. They can then create their own and share them with the online community.

Ease of Play

The app store suggests this is for ages 6 to 8, but the creations tool may prove challenging for kids on the younger end. They'll still easily catch on to the 2D shapes, though.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Draw 3D Junior :Learn Geometry & Create 3D Models introduces kids to how to draw, step by step. Kids learn different shapes and how to draw them, moving from basic shapes to 3D shapes. They then can copy designs made up of many shapes or create their own designs. Kids can view designs created by others and share theirs, as well, but no personal information is requested from kids. Directions are minimal, but tutorial videos on YouTube are available in-app, protected by a parental lock gate. Since there's no language in the app, no reading skills are required, but explanations of each shape are included in English. Read the app's privacy policy to find out about the types of information collected and shared.

What's it about?

As kids get started with DRAW 3D JUNIOR :LEARN GEOMETRY & CREATE 3D MODELS, they choose from Learn, Create, and Browse to explore shapes. In the Learn mode, kids draw 2D shapes step by step and then read information about the shapes and their attributes. Then they unlock the next shape and eventually advance to 3D shapes. In Create mode, kids can draw their own creations in 3D and share those drawings. They also can browse other players' creations and recreate or alter them. Kids start with a square and triangle but quickly advance to advanced 3D objects such as a dodecahedron and rhombicuboctahedron.

Is it any good?

Think of this as a two-for-one tool: It acts as an educational geometry experience and a creation tool, but it might not keep kids creating for long. The content is rich, taking kids into advanced geometric designs, if it's a bit dry. Kids help connect dots to create the shape and then read the name and attributes of the shape. The creation tool is challenging but easy to navigate, allowing kids to create original 3D designs and save and share them or to copy and customize other designs. In the design tool, there's no wrong way to play, and kids get multiple chances in learning mode and can work at their own pace. For kids longing to learn how to draw in 3D or learn about complex shapes, Draw 3D Junior :Learn Geometry & Create 3D Models is a great place to start, but it may have limited appeal for others.
