What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Make a Martian is a fun and simple app that allows kids to mix and match alien body parts (tails, claws, bug-eyes, antennae, etc.) to create their own space monsters. Some of the parts include claws and fangs, but for the most part, these are cute, non-scary martians. They can save pictures of their creations to the photo storage area of the mobile device.

Is it any good?

MAKE A MARTIAN is a fantastic, fun way for little kids to goof around while being creative. The app provide dozens of wacky body parts kids can mix together to create original aliens. It's fun, relatively harmless, and should help inspire creativity that lives on beyond playtime with mom or dad's iPhone.
