It is original and offers 3 top interactive games with great colourful visuals and animations. Easy to use it engages your little ones via a fun and creative interface!
Vehicles are always kids favourite and My First App - Vol.1 Vehicles presents not only traditional vehicles such as cars, vans, trucks, tractors, buses … it also features horse carriage and spaceship! All vehicles are integrated in fun and interactive puzzle games to engage and stimulate children with observation, concentration, pattern recognition and fine motor skills.
Puzzle / jigsaw:
Let you kids tap on his/ her favourite vehicle. Select the level of difficulty that is right for your children. There are four levels, each with a different number of pieces ranging from 2 to 9. You also need to select if you want the pieces to just split up right or (… for extra challenge!) split and rotate. With the later, kids still need to drag the piece to the right place but also need to rotate it. To rotate, simply touch the screen with 2 fingers and turn it. Once finished, watch, acolourful clown pops up onto the screen congratulating the player.
Find the two pieces that go together? Build your vehicle by matching the front and back. Can you find the match? Slide one half of the vehicle up or down till you find the right match. Find the correct one.... And watch the vehicle move!
This game offers a different selection of vehicles and includes less common ones such as a street cleaner, a milk truck and even a red double decker bus for our British readers! Select a vehicle. A pinball appears at the bottom of the screen. Tilt your device and direct the ball to one of the wholes... See what happen, part of the picture animates!

What fun Educational Apps Liked
My First App - Vol.1 Vehicles is a fun and original game app. It is bright and colorful, very engaging and suitable for all young kids. There is no need to know how to read to use it as it uses symbols and visuals. There is no instructions but it is so easy to use that you don’t really need any!
The choices of vehicles are great and Fun Educational Apps likes the diversity ranging from a royal horse carriage to alien spaceship! With so many apps related to vehicles we were delighted to find one that stand out from the crowd! It is innovative and offers a unique game play for kids. Just note that kids can see many different types of vehicles but it does not give any names … you might want to go over it with your kids and help them name each one.
The jigsaw games are well designed and Fun Educational Apps liked the extra option where you can rotate the pieces. A great feature that does engage older kids. The most original game is the pinball one. Innovative it allows kid to tilt the device to direct the ball. This game app is very rewarding for pre-schoolers as each time they complete a puzzle they get to watch a cute animation.
For each game there is an upbeat musical background. Your kids will love it, but for parents it might get a bit repetitive especially when your kids will play the games over and over again … no worries the music can be muted!
Overall, My First App - Vol.1 Vehicles is a top game app for pre-schoolers. It is original, bright, colourful and very easy to use. It offers an unlimited game play and we are sure your kids will want to play over and over again.
