Curious George's Town App & Giveaway

A product/compensation was given for review for my honest opinion. 


These days, many parents pull out an iPad or iPhone when they need their child to sit quietly at a restaurant, plane ride, or other quiet area. Why not entertain them with a game that is not only fun but also educational!

If you are looking for a new game for your iPad or iPhone, check out the new Curious George's Town! It was developed for pre-school to kindergarten-aged children and it has so many great aspects like teaching math, counting, and how to save money!


Curious George's Town aims to teach children smart saving and spending habits while engaging kids in creating a virtual world complete with roller coasters, dinosaurs and farm animals. By accomplishing real-world and in-app challenges, children earn virtual coins they can use to purchase a variety of items to create their very own town. Based on the principle of deferred gratification, the app introduces the concepts of strategic planning and careful spending in order to accomplish a goal.


The app features a unique reward chart that parents and caregivers can customize by assigning a specific coin value to a list of real-world tasks – such as cleaning up toys – incentivizing children to complete real-life responsibilities. Kids can also supplement their stockpile of virtual savings by tackling in-app educational games such as alphabetizing books at Curious George’s library and collecting the correct items at the grocery store. Guided and narrated by the convivial Man with the Yellow Hat, the fun and engaging app also reinforces concepts like spelling, reading and matching.


I love that this game offers real-life tasks and ideas and then rewards! This inspires a sense of achievement and confidence for every child that plays the game! I love watching my son's face light up every time he completes a task and gets rewarded! So fun! And then he feels really special when HE gets to choose how to spend his hard earned "money"!


‘Curious George’s Town’ is the latest release in a series of mobile apps featuring HMH’s iconic Curious George character. Part of the new ‘Curious About’ series, ‘Town’ was preceded by ‘Curious About Shapes & Colors’ – this month’s Children’s Technology Review Editors’ Pick - and ‘Draw with Curious George.’ The series was created by the same HMH team that developed ‘Curious George at the Zoo’, which was recently inducted into the App Store Hall of Fame.
