We did buy this one as a way for the kids to explore the world with a Geo-Me. A cool app offering a lot of potential. We like that the team at Crackerbox did not want to present cliché but instead a unique experience for the kids by using animated musical stories and adorable avatars to introduce kids to basic world geography. This app is only at its beginning and we are looking forward to new addition to this app!
