Grandpa in Space | fun & educational Space game for kids
✔ iPad + iPhone | kids app for ages 5-8 years
Grandpa in Space is the new educational game by Fairlady Media, who have already been pretty successful with their previous apps Grandpa’s Workshop and Grandma’s Garden, which provided parents and kids with plenty of entertainment and fun. This time however, grandpa is sent on an adventurous and educational journey through Space and we’re going to tell you, what kids can expect below.
The tasks in Grandpa in Space
The tasks in Grandpa in Space are presented as planets from our solar system. Via simple touch onto the passing planet, kids get to choose a destination and get to learn some fun facts about the corresponding planet i.e. Saturn’s rings are made up of millions of chunks of ice and rocks. In order for grandpa to start his journey, kids need to build him a rocket first, which is how the mini game starts off.
For those of you who know the other games by Fairlady Media, will also know that many educational videos were implemented into the game. With Grandpa in Space, kids can watch many interesting educational planet videos of a Space documentary, where for example, gravity in space is explained and the individual planets are presented in detail.
The NASA space program is also being thematized and the presentation of these video clips in a space movie theater, has been done extremely well. Grandpa only needs to watch out for the flying popcorn that is slowly hovering by.
Overview of the educational games
Grandpa in Space offers a total of 10 different fun and educational activities, which are of course, all taking place in space. As you can see in the following list, kids will already need to know how to read and calculate for some of the tasks. The age recommendation of the app developers from the App Store description is therefore 6-8 years, but many games can already be played and solved by preschool kids – we have marked these with a * and we will also tell you how to select and set up the app for preschoolers below.
- Build a Rocket. Choose from sleek and shiny or totally silly rocket parts!*
- Clean up the Ship. Oh, no! The ship is filled with floating debris! Put it in the right bins!*
- Sort by Height. Can you line up the aliens, towers, and rockets by height?*
- Fix the Satellite. Oops, an asteroid damaged the satellite; can you fix all the parts?*
- Memory Match. Use sound clues to help find matching aliens behind the planets!*
- Shape Lander. Can you land UFO on the trapezoid landing pad?*
- Opposites. Send each alien to the right home by matching up the opposites!
- Rhyme Race. Help the aliens win the UFO race by rhyming the words!
- Asteroid Blaster. Count by 1’s, 2’s, 5’s, or 10’s to blast the asteroids!
- Alien Addition. Can you add up those wiggly alien legs?
It is really worth checking out the safe parental area, where you can customize the game for your child’s level. Individual games can be deactivated i.e. in case your kids cannot yet read or add up numbers. But even if your children should specifically practice maths for example, then the other games can be temporarily disabled here. Good solution!

Grandpa in Space | Kids App Rating
The Grandpa and Grandma apps by Fairlady Media are definitely must have apps for kids – and Grandpa in Space successfully continues this educational game series. Packed with educational knowledge all about planets, space and educational games for preschool and primary school age, kids get to spend lots of time with this app, whilst learning and having tons of fun at the same time. We especially like the wide range of topics and educational content. Additions, rhymes, environment protection (recycling) and logic games provide plenty of alternation, something kids are very fond of.
