Ages 2-5. This app is designed for very young children, even if they cannot read yet, to learn about our solar system!
You will be pleasantly surprised how much you child will learn and remember with this app. Children love the vivid images and the audio descriptions of the planets. They may even memorize a fact or two about our amazing solar system!
In a simple way, the app teaches children about each planet's location, size, orbit time, temperature, composition, and more.
Children love big numbers, and there are plenty in this app!
The Information Center contains informative data on each planet. The solar system is shown to scale for children to be able to visualize the planet distances from the sun, as well as, their relative sizes!
The Planet Sizes activity allows children to drag the planets across the screen to get a feel for their relative sizes and learn the order of the planets. Each planet will "snap" into place and it's name will be heard aloud when it is dragged to the correct position.
The Planet Orbits activity allows children to observe the relative speeds of orbit for each planet in proportion to Earth.
The Planet Card Matching activity contains the famous Three-Part Card System used in Montessori Classrooms. Children can drag the picture cards and labels to match them up to the control cards at the top.

Ratings and Reviews
It’s a challenge to try to teach younger children about the solar system. The audio voice in this app is perfect to teach the concepts. Thx!
My 6-year-old sand 3-year-old are fascinated with space. This app gives them information about each planet in an engaging manner. My favorite part is the card matching work! Definitely worth the wait, and looking for to more. Thank you for making this lovely app :0) Yalanda O.
Clunky, basic, crash prone app
Sadly I cannot encourage others to purchase this app. It only kind of works and eventually crashes. When it does run, the information and activities seem dated and simplistic. It is not a polished app. The free NASA app is better as are other apps pertaining to the solar system, galaxy, and exo planets. I suspect I'll be deleting this shortly. Can't imagine my children will find this to be anything other than frustrating and boring.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
