Do your kids love to play on your Apple devices? PBS Kids just released a fun new THOMAS & FRIENDS app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The THOMAS & FRIENDS Watch and Play app offers four activities which include, track builder, track repair, steam team snapshots, and videos.
This new app is the first THOMAS & FRIENDS app to offer full length episodes . My 6-year-old son loves to play with the track builder feature on this app. He loves creating custom tracks for the trains. The app allows your track builder to choose from three trains; Percy, James, and Thomas to have drive along the track you build. Harold the helicopter can also fly over the track. My 4-year-old son simply loves everything about this app. He is always asking to play it. I have been told many times by my boys that they love to play this app.
When you click on the icon of this app, the home screen of the app will immediately send out a train whistle. That train whistle is like a dinner bell in our home because all my kids come running as soon as they hear that whistle! This is a screen shot of my son building a track loaded with circles. He is a bit obsessed with this app feature!
This is a great app for preschoolers. It helps develop problem solving skills and having full episodes at your disposal 24/7 is always a great resource for parents when kids need a little down time.
The THOMAS & FRIENDS Watch and Play app is available for $2.99 on the app store.
