Review Highlights:

In the Sago Mini World, children have a wide variety of games and activities to choose from. Each world provides unique environments for the characters to engage with. Children can play dress up, build, engage with music, create monsters and bugs, practice preschool concepts in the puppy preschool, and visit different landscapes such as the ocean, as just a few of the many activities available. Many of the games focused on cause and effect which is very engaging for young toddlers. Some of the games work using a variety of reactions. For instance when building with tools, the child could just touch the bolt to get it to turn or you could move your finger in the direction you wanted the wrench to turn. This allows for more flexibility in the play and skill variation based on age.

I really liked the variety of games included within the Sago Mini World. The characters were cute and the games had an element of surprise built in. The 6-year-old that played the games noticed that after she dressed up the characters, there was a camera option, and sometimes the characters would make funny faces in the pictures. She specifically commented on this while playing. She was engaged with several areas of the game for at least an hour and returned to some of her favorite areas periodically. I liked the ease of use for younger children. The 2-year-old had no trouble interacting with the games. Her favorite was creating the monsters. She liked being able to change the faces and feed the monsters. She also enjoyed the music box and sound box. She liked making the musical sounds very fast.

This is exploratory learning app is simply excellent. It's intuitive, works great as a standalone, but coupled with parent involvement it becomes a spectacular learning tool. I particularly loved the helpful question prompts specifically for parents and teachers to enhance the learning.
