Curious George’s Town


The girls know that I don’t let them play with apps on my phone. In fact, they don’t even ask to play with my phone. However, they have known that they can play with their Aunt’s and Grammi’s phones. When we go somewhere (doctor’s office, restaurant, etc), I don’t let them play with it, either.

However, there have been a couple doctor’s visits (of mine, thanks OB) that have gone WAY long and they start to get bored. For those times, I recently was given the chance to check out the Curious George’s Town app. It is best geared at the pre-schooler’s age (4) and maybe a little younger. 

It aims to teach children smart saving and spending habits while engaging kids in creating a virtual world complete with roller coasters, dinosaurs and farm animals. But, also features a unique reward chart that can be customized by assigning a specific coin value to a list of real-world tasks.

By accomplishing real-world and in-app challenges, children earn virtual coins they can use to purchase a variety of items to create their very own town. Based on the principle of deferred gratification, the app introduces the concepts of strategic planning and careful spending in order to accomplish a goal. Kids can also supplement their stockpile of virtual savings by tackling in-app educational games such as alphabetizing books at Curious George’s library and collecting the correct items at the grocery store. Guided and narrated by the convivial Man with the Yellow Hat, the fun and engaging app also reinforces concepts like correct spelling, reading and matching.

Right now, we are still working our way through the games, practicing patience and realizing that we can’t always go forward in a game (we definitely need this).

There is also cleaning up and sorting in the park (which has encouraged her to clean and help out around the house!)

We haven’t made it through all of the tasks and rewards yet because we are definitely pacing it. It’s nice to use it in a big pinch or as a reward when something is completely. And, since the 4 year old likes it, that’s a total win to us!
