Great game

I recommend KSP to all people who like science and rockets, I think it is best for kids that are 11 and up, just because it takes a while to learn and might be hard for younger kids to understand, but kids that are 11 and up should be able to manage the game if they are really interested in physics and things like that, anyways, it is an awesome game!

the best but difficult

If you have a dad or mom thats good at physics i highly recomend this game . good gamplay makes you try to make a rocket that works. the problem is that it has alot of bugsbut there easy to avoid if you use struts mods or not using physical time warp has an ok community and over all a very very good game one of the best games ever made!

A Difficult and INCREDIBY Moddable Game

The game has a difficult learning curve (which can be helped with if you do the tutorials,) but is also fun at the same time due to the fact that you learn how to do (very simplified) rocketry, (not too incredibly) simple satellite networks, planes (with a fairly simple aerodynamics system,) and vehicles as well. (It also has a pretty decent orbital system, but it Isn't an IRL Equivalent. You can download the Principia mod for that, and finally experience a Lissajous Orbit for yourself.) Because of the nature of this game, the modding scene has existed practically since the game's birth. Like, you can get mods which allow you to make a burger rocket, or strap GAU-8's onto your plane, or even fly a Daedalus Engine to another solar system. And on the plus side, you won't ever get any "mature" mods, this is a sandbox game about building rockets. (Note that with younger kids, you will need to guide them through some things, as this game isn't too simple.)

solid game

great game though can be hard
age 10+

the most complicated 3d game ever

this game costs $40. there are realistic explosion. the space travel are so realistic that will make your kid angry and confused. the physics are acurrate too. but the kerbals are cute. there are entirely no gore/sex/swearing/oder (offline game). buy your child this game if you want them to be an astronaut/pilot/engineer/physicist

Too much violence
age 5+

rather for more people who like science

Although the most traumatizing event in the game is a rocket exploding(simply presented by an orange cloud), the gameplay aspect requires you to grasp concepts that are quite hard for young, school-aged children to grasp.
age 9+

physics but hard

this game is suitable for all ages but i say 9+ because it has some physics conspepts you have to calculate
