I think kids of all ages will find this iPad game to be a more interesting and effective way to learn bone anatomy. Much better than staring at a page in a science book.” www.crazymikesapps.com

Best educational tool

Bought the app and have devoted hours trying to get Gold medal worthy scores.
Fun, addictive game that made learning anatomy easy. Appropriate for all educational levels, from primary school to tertiary.
Good to see Harold is still around!



What an ingenious way to teach kids about the human skeleton! The parrot voice just makes the app 10x better than it would be without it. This should be on every school's iPad.


Kids love it

My five and seven year old kids love playing this app. The skeleton has been broken down into sections to learn. Very clever with a crazy parrot narrating.
