The other night I downloaded a new app for J’s iPod – Dino Tales – and left him to have a go with it once it finished installing. 10 minutes later he came downstairs and whispered “Mummy, it’s awesome!”. The game is aimed at 4-11 year old but I think at 7 he is the perfect age for it.
You travel round a 3D island hatching dinosaur eggs and looking for fossils, you hen have to look after the dinosaurs by feeding them and can ask questions about the different species. As you are playing you are also creating a story which you can then read back.
Here’s what J thinks about it
In the 2 days that he has been playing he has found all the eggs and most of the fossils, I’m not sure what will happen next and if the game will continue to grow with him but he is loving taking care of all his dinosaurs and has named them after all his friends!
The game is available to download from today for £2.99 form the App store
