Make dolphins jump. Build a coral reef. Explore the deep sea. Create your own aquarium. These are just some of the fun things you can do with MarcoPolo Ocean, a “digital sandbox” for kids to play in that sparks their interest in the most unexplored part of our planet – the ocean.
Build and Explore
Five build-and-play activities bring the language and the images of the ocean to life. Ocean is playfully narrated and animated to reinforce vocabulary, physical attributes and ocean concepts.
Free Play Exploration
The open ocean is a personal aquarium your child can explore however he or she chooses!
*Explore from the shoreline all the way down to the sea floor
*Steer your submersible and boat through ocean waters
*Add marine animals and fish to the ocean and interact with more than 30 different species
*Investigate by tapping, dragging and swiping where the animals live in the ocean to see their natural behaviors and how they interact with other animals
Through self-directed discovery, we expose kids to early skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), focusing on the following concepts:
*The wide variety of animal species that live in the shallow and deep parts of the ocean
*Construction and characteristics of a boat (shipping vessel) and submersible
*Characteristics of fish and marine mammals
*Topic-specific vocabulary exposure and acquisition
*Compatibility: Requires iOS 5.0 or later.

What's New in Version 2.0.2
Now for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus!
Fantastic app and my two and a half year old daughter really likes it. It's engaging, the audio/visuals are good and the puzzles are interesting.
However, it crashes frequently to the point where it'll refuse to restart. Also, moving out of the app forces you to start from the beginning, once back in. Annoying, especially if you're halfway through a puzzle.
Fun and education
Fantastic app, one of the best on the market. Active learning at its best-goes beyond the basic set of ocean species, grouping them in mammals, fish etc. fantastic vocabulary builder for young kids. A truly multisensory feast! Also presents elements of science eg. Buoyancy with gentle and informative voiceover.
Pretty and fun, not much more I'm afraid
Pretty with stylish graphics, lots for kids to do, tapping, building and filling scenes with fish, but ultimately shallow, with little explanation and uses language beyond vocabulary of age group. Not sure what kids would take away from this.
