Quality

Piiig Labs is full of high quality interactive images and activities that children are going to love. With fun sound effects for just about every image and illustration, little scientists are able to turn lights on, flip switches, and interact with each of their projects as if they were really there. The developers have really done a nice job creating a hands on app in a virtual environment that is easy to use and very intuitive. Without much instruction, children can drag and drop the pieces needed for each project easily. Overall, a very high quality app.

Education

Piiig Labs is a science based app that teaches children to use their logic and challenges them to figure out how each project and experiment work. There are 8 science activities total and in order to advance to the next project, players must complete the previous one which is really nice since each project increases in difficulty. Little scientists will build everything from a light bulb to a volcano and watch as they come to life once each is successfully put together.

Another thing I love about this app is that as children piece each experiment together, child narrators call out the piece that they are using. This gives players the opportunity to learn the names of each piece of the radio, light bulb etc.

Entertainment

While this app doesn’t have any specific entertainment activities, each science experiment is a lot of fun to use. Not only are there a variety of interactive images throughout the app, but after each project is complete children can interact with it. One of my favorites is the virtual volcano that explodes and releases lava in a variety of colors.

Value

Priced at just under three dollars, this app is a good value. With 8 activities to complete and lots of fun interactive images to play with this app will keep little science lovers busy. For parents with a little ones at home with an affinity for science, this app is a must have.

Child Friendliness

Piiig Labs has a very intuitive interface that is great for children to use. With simple drag and drop technology to move the pieces of each project to the appropriate place and a template for most activities, the developers have done a great job making the app easy to use. The narration piece also helps children learn the pieces of each project while they play.

Parents can rest assured knowing that there are no in app purchases or advertisements to be concerned with. There is a parents section that is protected that offers additional information on how to best use the app to get the most educational value out of it.
