Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that, although The Sandbox allows kids to create their own worlds and advertises numerous elements they can use to build them, not all the elements come with the free version. Instead, ads for additional elements and suggestions involving paid elements fill the game. Parents who neglect to turn off notifications also will find that the game sends sale notifications frequently, encouraging kids and parents to buy more expansion packs. It’s annoying, but parents can use this as an opportunity to talk to kids about need versus want and how to create a budget.

The Sandbox is a Educational Games app that is designed for those 10.  The app has an overall rating of 3 out of 5 and a learning rating of 3 out of 5.

The Sandbox is available for Free On The Following Devices:

iPhone
iPod Touch
iPad
Android

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Kids get control over the process and are allowed to be creative.

The Support Level for The Sandbox is about a 3 out of 5.

Campaign mode guides kids through the process, but the app could use more free extensions or options.

We’d like to thank C.S.M for providing some of the information on this page.
