What's New in Version 1.2
We've updated Grandpa In Space for iOS 8, enjoy!
My 3 and a half year old has really been enjoying the Grandma and Grandpa games and I was excited to see this new one pop up! I bought it immediately and it's all he's been playing the last week. I love the informative sequences about each planet, and the math problems. He's really digging it! I love that there are bits he doesn't quite "get" at first but he enjoys anyway...and then enjoys on a whole new level as he learns!
