What parents need to know

Parents need to know that TALU Space is a space-themed collection of mini-games for kids that are mostly centered around basic math skills like counting, matching, etc. The activities are lacking in clear directions, and the skills have a range, so kids may need help understanding what to do. There's also no feedback given for wrong answers. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids') information is collected, used, and shared and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.

What's it about?

TALU SPACE is a collection of mini-games set on a space station and out in space. Kids are given a spaceship and can choose an avatar from a variety of animal options. They fly through the space station and pick and choose from the themed buildings. The games largely focus on skills such as matching and sorting objects like fruit and gems. There are other games, too, like turning pipe pieces to repair an irrigation system, or searching the solar system for planets. Kids earn stars for their activities, and they can use the stars to customize their spaceship and buy clothes for their character.

Is it any good?

Kids who love space will be thrilled to fly around in a spaceship exploring the mini-games, but younger kids will definitely need help. TALU Space has a lot of different activities, so it's bound to keep kids busy for quite some time. The challenge is that the skills required are broad in range: Sorting fruit is easy for a preschooler, but understanding how to connect pipes for water to flow through may not be. Counting gems is something most kindergartners can do with ease, but will they have the patience to search through every bit of space to find planets? And it's not always clear what needs to be done. They may understand they need to sort the fruit, but will they know that they have to tap on each container first to open it? Most kids will likely find something to enjoy in TALU Space, but the lack of clear directions, feedback, help, and overall skill leveling makes it an experience that may require help for little ones.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about matching in TALU Space and offscreen. How are things alike? How are they different? Can you match colors? Shapes?

  • Practice counting objects as you go through your day like snacks, shoes, wheels, etc.
