Fun way to learn

Great way for kids - even young readers - to learn basic facts about the 50 states. Just enough fun to make kids want to play, but still has great value. At the very least your kids will learn state capitals, shapes, and relative sizes of the states. The bonus games reinforce the information.

Geography fun for the whole family!

Our whole family enjoys this app. Even my 3- and 5-year olds started watching over our shoulder and learned how to play the games on their own. They cannot read yet but learned the shape and location of all states and are now onto learning the flags. The Map It bonus game is our favorite! The kids have really taken an interest in geography and feel very proud of themselves for having mastered their states.

LEARNING

Great learning game

First, this is a multiple-choice game. A question is asked and there are 4 states to choose from as the answer. If they get it right, the state falls. Once they have stacked enough states to the line(which changes based on accuracy), they get a state to put in their map of the US. The music isn't annoying and is upbeat. You can have up to 6 players with each having separate records. Plus, there's a space for a guest, where it doesn't save your scores. My 3 children, ages 8-12 play it as one of their favorites. We got it when my youngest was 7, and she played it then. It's not intense on learning and has limited questions after a while, which they tend to memorize, but isn't that part of the point?..for them to remember the facts? I recommend it.

Best 99 cents you'll ever spend

Buy it! This is the most amazing game for kids (and adults!) to learn their states and capitals, as well as figuring out how they all fit together as a puzzle. I can't say enough good things about this app. My 6 yr old loves it - even chooses to play it instead of Angry Birds - has gone through twice and knows it all. Best 99 cents I've ever spent. If you like this app, move on to Aliens vs Presidents and your child (or you!) will learn the who's who of our Presidents.
