More creativity unlocked!

I downloaded this app today (for when my niece and nephews are over) and I haven't stopped building trains and maps myself! Lol
I like the ability to customize the maps and it is really cool to be able to unlock items as you play.
I'll check back after some kids play Build a Train 2 on my iPad and update what they thought; but I give it 5 stars right now! :)
I also love the child lock Playtend has in place so kids aren't able to just go to the App Store from the game!
