A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Though the app doesn't contain any actual learning content, kids can stretch their imaginations as they discover all sorts of silly items floating in the sky. If parents play with kids and encourage them to talk about what they're doing, kids can practice verbalizing stories and exploring their creativity.
Ease of Play
Kids easily tap and drag around the screen to guide the plane through the sky.
Products & Purchases

Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
Kids take the pilot's seat and see what happens in this simple and accessible adventure in the sky. Though there's not much depth to Sago Mini Planes, each time kids take a flight, there are new things to discover, most of which are bound to delight little ones. Kids are in charge of their experience as they decide where to take the plane, though they remain passive observers of interactions and reactions. In this way, Sago Mini Planes offers a mixture of kid-directed, open-ended play, with scripted pre-programmed interactions. Kids likely get richer play experiences when their play is entirely open-ended, yet parents can help kids get more out of their play with Sago Mini Planes by using it as a launching pad for creative discussion, storytelling, and imaginative play.
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.
