My kids love my iPad. I actually have to hide it all the time so they don’t constantly play it. My oldest two ask me and everyone else who visits, where is mommy’s iPad. When Grandma comes to visit, she lets them play on her iPad, also. I have lots of apps for the kids to play but my boys love apps about trains the best. Of course, Thomas the Train is their very favorite train. The boys have gotten an extra special treat this week when we got the Thomas and Friends “Steam Team Station” Duo Game for the iPad in the mail.
All 3 kids have had fun with the Steam Team Station for iPod. My 4 year old can play it all by himself, my 3 year old needs a little help, and my 1 year old can even play it with her older brother’s help. The kids played the Steam Team Station for an hour straight when we first received it. The boys took turns playing the games, and Connor let Noelle play with him a bit during some of the games.
The Thomas and Friend Steam Team Station app is free to download at the app store; there are 2 games already on the free version and 1 game that can be purchased in app. Once you have the app, you simply slide your iPad into the docking station and let your kids play the game. There are 6 cards that interact with the Steam Team Station. One side is one of the Thomas and Friends characters and on the other side are objects for the Sodor Spot It game. My 4 year old loves all 3 games and is very hip on all the Thomas trivia. My 3 year old needs help finding things at times with the Sodor Spot It because he doesn’t always know what is being asked of him. The Steam Team Station is an active play app that tries to get the kids up and jumping around. The game you can purchase will especially get them up and moving; it is silly and makes my kids giggle and follow the directions on what movement they should do next.
This is a really awesome product! I am not sure I would have given it a second thought if I’d seen it on the shelf at the store but my kids have been playing it over and over since we received it. I feel comfortable and secure letting them play with this while I do chores, and it keeps them completely entertained and occupied.
