Build With Grandpa

Age Level: Ages 5-8
By Developer: Fairlady Media

Build With Grandpa allows kids from 5 – 8 to learn some of the aspects of construction, all the while playing mini games and watching 10 video snippets. From demolition to blueprints, all the way to the last little details, kids can create multiple homes with different windows, doors, paint color, landscaping, etc, and save them.

The graphics and audio are top notch, and Grandpa is the perfect kind of contractor to work with, kind and measuring, with great “high-fives”. He even teaches some helpful safety rules. Following Grandpa's instructions you will use a bulldozer, dump out rocks from a dump truck, mix cement and more, measure and nail boards, play word search games, and a whole lot more.

Kids will have fun with the games and walk away with a whole new look at what putting up a building entails.

Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
