What is it
In More Trucks, Children can choose between four different trucks in this collection of fun activities. Will they put out a fire, or wreck buildings? It’s up to them!
In Fire Truck and Monster Trucks, children have to avoid obstacles, collect coins and put out fires. In Construction Site and Tow Truck, they will need to follow the instructions to tow the cars to the scrapyard, or build a building (and swing the wrecking ball at it afterwards!).
When each activity is completed, the app praises the child, and they are also rewarded with new trucks to play with. If they do not do the activity correctly, the app prompts them to try again. This helps encourage the child to persevere with the game. It is easy for children to switch between activities, using the four large image buttons.

What our experts think
To race the monster trucks – avoiding obstacles and collecting coins – children need to plan ahead so they know when to speed up, slow down and jump. The activities also require them to follow instructions, for example, picking up the car using the magnet and putting it on the scrap heap. The children enjoyed the interactions and activities in each scene. The consistent praise the app gives children encourages them to persevere and keep playing the games.
It would be even better if...
The children liked the different scenes, so it would be good to have more of them.
