Overview

Trybie Journey is a unique and interactive storybook that takes readers on a journey through Chemistry in a very hands-on kind of way. With great graphics, an interesting story line, and lots of fun experiments for families to try together, this app provides an engaging way to learn for kids of all ages.

  • 13 Experiments
  • Story included
  • Great graphics & sound effects

Quality

The developers have done an excellent job of creating an app with playful images and engaging activities for children to enjoy. The set up of this app is quite unique as it offers educational material in the form of a story with hands-on experiments that children can do at home, sprinkled throughout. The user interface is also quite easy to use as it only requires simple tap and touch functioning to move through the app. Since a large portion of the app includes reading, it would be nice to include narration with text-highlighting for ease of use, however as it is now, it is still a great app.

Education

Trybie Journey is an imaginative story app that includes lots of great educational information for children to enjoy. With 13 experiments including creating a glowing light, magical chemical flowers, and so much more. These exciting experiments are not just for show as the developers have made sure to include the scientific explanations and additional information to help readers understand the chemistry behind each experiment.

Parents can also rest assured knowing each experiment comes with specific safety information to keep both parents and children safe. There is also a list of warning symbols that provide additional information so children can better understand what each symbol means for future reference. For children who are looking for a fun way to learn a bit of science, this app is perfect.

Entertainment

One thing that parents will notice immediately is that this isn’t your typical educational app. Instead of listing a variety of experiments and sharing the educational information behind them, the developers have included a very interesting and imaginative story about a test tube named Trybie who goes on a journey to learn about the science of the world outside of the laboratory. This is the kind of app that children will enjoy so much they’ll forget they were even learning.

Value

Priced at just under five dollars, this app might be more than some parents expect to pay for an app, however it is a great deal. With 13 experiments, a cute story, and excellent illustrations, Trybie Journey is well worth the price. Educational, entertaining, and perfect for little scientists ready to explore the world of chemistry.

Child Friendliness

Overall, the user interface is very easy to use and only requires users to tap and swipe their way through the app. There are very useful visual instructions that walk children through the step-by-step process for each experiment with illustrations so there is no confusion on how to do each experiment. Parents can also rest assured knowing that any “additional information” links are protected so children won’t be getting into any areas they shouldn’t be.

There is a lot of reading in the story sections of the app and while older children are likely going to be using the app most, it would be nice to have a narration and text-highlighting option included for younger users. The developers have also done an excellent job adding in specific safety precautions and warnings with each experiment as needed in order to keep children and parents safe.
