What's New in Version 1.1 Updated October 18, 2013
Update includes brand new game, Track Stars!
Use geometric shapes to build train cars, then decorate your train, add passengers, and watch it drive down the track!
Help build bridges so the dinosaurs can get around Troodon Town! Drag your finger to measure the distance between two points, then choose the two sets of logs that equal the right length to complete the bridge.
The dinosaurs are hungry! Add food to the scale until it’s balanced. When you’ve got it right, watch them chow down!
Put the dinosaurs in order by height. When you’ve got them in the right order, drag them to the house they belong to!

What's New in Version 1.1
Added Track Stars game!
So many glitches!!
I think this game could be sooo cute and educational. But there are so many glitches that one of the games you can't play, another the dinosaur keeps repeating himself, it skips and the list goes on. PLEASE PBS fix it! If you are going to make people pay for your games make it worth the money I've downloaded free apps the work better. Very upsetting.
Kids enjoy the app...
Both my kids enjoy the app, but as a parent I wish they would expand a little more on the educational side, e.g. Improving the math teaching concepts in the bridge building game.
I had written a previous review complaining about audio not working only to realize I had muted my iPad with the switch.
Working great and then stop
I've had this app for little over year was working wonderfully until the other day when I couldn't get the trains to work for my son. It's his favorite part of the whole app and it's the only thing that won't work.. Not happy
