The Great Inventors | Educational Kids App learning about important Inventions
✔ iPad + iPhone | kids app for ages 4-7 years
Today we want to introduce you to an educational kids app called »The Great Inventors« by Dream Made, which is about the most important and popular inventions of our time. The educational app is available for as little as $ 1.99 for iPad and iPhone and is especially suitable for kids ages 4-7 years. Read in our review below as to what to expect of this awesome knowledge-app.
Inventors and their Great Inventions
The Great Inventors app presents it’s contents as an interactive Seek and Find picture, which have each been dedicated to a certain time period. The beautiful and colorful landscape is as big as two iPad screens next to each other and can be scrolled sideways. Kids can find and explore various typical inventions of the certain time period, on the imaginatively designed scenery, which also comes to life via finger-touch with animations and sounds.
Explanations with narration
By tapping onto the question mark button at the top of the screen, the app changes to the explanatory mode, with which each invention is explained in written and via audio response. The written text has been child-friendly written, draws attention and also explains the use of each invention for humanity. Luckily the legend is not only shown in written but also being narrated in three different languages (English, German, Italian), which makes it suitable for preschool kids, who cannot yet read.
Time Travel & Mini Games
A special highlight of the app is the possibility to travel through time. With an old-fashioned pocket-watch, kids get to travel and switch to different eras and compare the different inventions together. This way they playfully develop an understanding of contexts i.e. that on the basis of the bicycle, the motorbike was later invented.
A really nice addition are the mini games. With various memo-games, kids can improve and check their know-how about the inventions, by sorting and matching the picture cards of inventions with the picture cards of the inventors.

The Great Inventors | Kids App Rating
The Great Inventors app definitely makes times long gone come back to life with the beautiful interactive hidden object scenery. We love the presentation for it being an educational kids app. Whether it’s a bicycle, airplane or railway, through the animated objects, children can experience the inventions in action and become aware of the fact that behind each technology in our daily lives, stood a clever inventor, who with his development, facilitated and improved our lives.
The app includes a total of 20 inventions, which is plenty for preschool kids, but for school kids however, the app could be upgraded a little bit more. With the purchase price of $ 1.99, we’re pretty satisfied with the size of the app and it’s content.
