Architecture and construction for kids! Learn and play as you make super tall buildings!

Discover how people build, live, and play in skyscrapers. Go up and down, through every floor, and underground. Spark a blackout, fix a pipe, or clog the toilets. Test your building’s engineering when dinosaurs invade, lightning strikes, or the earth quakes. Find out what keeps skyscrapers standing tall and people happy in them all.

Skyscrapers is No. 7 in Tinybop’s Explorer’s Library series. Apps in this series have been downloaded more than 5 million times and have won Best of the App Store, App Store Editors’ Choice, Parents’ Choice, and Children's Technology Review Editor’s Choice awards.

Editors’ Notes

What are those towers that touch the sky? Tinybop’s awesome sandbox teaches kids the fun way—by letting them build, watch, and play. As they add floors and test the effects of plumbing problems and earthquakes, they're actually learning basic design and engineering principles. Amazing details abound—from all the busy little inhabitants to the full-blown skyline you can make.

Great game for kids

This is a wonderfully done game for younger kids. I remember getting it when I was 3-4, and I loved it. I recently found it again, and tried it out. I will admit, it was sort of slow, but what would you expect from a game directed at 4-7 year olds? All the little details make this a delightful game for younger kids and an interesting experience for older ones. Thanks for reading! Stay safe everybody 😷😷🧼🧴🦠

I love it, I’m 6 years old, Not very educational though

Hi, tinybop! This app is so fun, I love your apps! Except even when I turn on labels, I don’t learn anything. I love creating skyscrapers and cities, but it’s not very educational. I have at least 5 apps made by tinybop: 1.Weather 2.skyscrapers 3.states of matter 4.simple machines 5.everything machine. If you could make this app more educational, then I would love it 499%. No suggestions!
