Grandpa in Space is another high quality app in the Grandma and Grandpa series of educational apps for young children. The great graphics and music, along with a simple interface makes the app appealing to children. Parents should find the app easy to customize and will be pleased with the child-safe play environment.


This app contains multiple learning opportunities through educational mini games and short videos. One way children will learn about the planets and life as an astronaut in space is through short, narrated videos containing actual NASA footage and photos.

Children will work on educational skills such as shapes, rhyming, matching, counting and more through playing space-themed activities; building rockets, fixing satellites, rhyming words and alien addition to name a few.

A small amount of reading is required in some areas, such as the planet facts. Users would benefit from these areas being narrated. Narration allows children to return to the app even when adult supervision may not be available, like on a long car ride.


With the educational content in this app being presented through videos and activities it is likely that children will not realize the many skills they are learning. It is an app they will delight in playing making it one they return to frequently.


Grandpa in Space is a great value for families and schools. This universal app offers numerous educational activities that will keep the little ones entertained. It offers endless game play and variety for the kids and flexibility and a child-safe environment parents will appreciate.

Child Friendliness

Protected sections for parents are a welcome feature in apps for children and just one more reason to make this a must-have app for families with young children.
