It’s time to take a trip downtown. What will you do there? Anything you want, because you’re visiting Sago Mini Big City—a sandbox app aimed at preschoolers. Playtime just got a lot more interesting.
See who’s hiding behind the door of the post office. Send a racoon up and down in the elevator. Ride a garbage truck to the museum and see the dinosaur. Dress a pigeon in a funky hat and put her on stage at the theatre. You might not find a giant squid in your hometown, but he’s hanging out at the diner here! Basically a toy set for two- to five-year-olds, this app is open-ended and designed to encourage exploration.
The Sago Mini series numbers almost 30 apps. There are farms, planes, superheroes—all ready to help little ones learn through play. This Big City edition is a side-scrolling 2D street in a metropolis with a cast of cartoon-like characters your kids can interact with.
There are a dozen buildings with objects to chuck around. You’re rewarded for curiosity, so try giving a parcel to a character, or taking money from a bank machine over to a shop. The “For Parents” section encourages families to tell stories and ask questions as they explore the city together.
