In Mulle Meck’s Cars kids are invited to come into the shop and design their own car. Once they’ve finished, they’re given the opportunity to take the car for a test drive on a mini obstacle course. As kids test out their cars, they learn a little about physics too. This app is a fun way to teach kids a little about science while allowing them be creative at the same time.

When kids first open the app, they’re shown the main screen. Tapping the play button in the middle of the screen gives kids access to the workshop. Once they enter the workshop, arrows appear to show kids how to choose the different parts of their cars. The graphics and animation found in the app are high-quality and are easy for kids to interact with. Kids will have little trouble figuring out what to do and how to get their car completed so they can drive it on the track.
Developers have designed a course that helps kids learn a little about physics. The connections to physics are subtle and kids who only play the app a few times may not pick up on them. However, as kids test out different cars, they’ll begin to notice how cars with different weights and wheels sizes perform on the obstacle course. For example, a small car may go a lot faster up and down the hills than a larger car with a lot of weight.
With over 100 combinations, kids will spend a lot of time designing and testing out different cars. They can choose the front and rear of each car, as well as the wheels it contains. Then, kids are also able to paint the car. They can choose to paint it one color or multiple colors. There are so many possibilities!
Kids who love cars will really enjoy this app. It’s priced comparably to other apps of similar quality and really can be a lot of fun for kids.
On the bottom of the main screen, kids will see small “rate us” and “more apps” buttons. Access to these areas, as well as the parent area, is protected, but the “more apps” button may still take kids’ attention away from the game. The parent info button opens up a webpage where parents will find more information about the app, as well as links to the developer’s social media accounts, and a second invitation to rate the app.
