Kids Trucks in Town is an app created for young children aged five years and younger. Upon opening, children are greeted by Tom the Dispatcher and asked to select and send the fire truck, utility truck, landscaping truck, or the school bus to the job at hand. In this manner, they quickly and easily navigate through the app's twenty-one age appropriate educational games. On the firetruck, they practice tracing by directing water through the fire hose. On the utility truck, they practice matching by placing the correctly-shaped bulbs in a burnt-out sign or use spatial awareness and problem-solving to fix broken circuits, as they're constantly reminded to turn off the electricity before working. They work on color and pattern recognition when helping with the landscaper plant a garden of colorful flowers. And, they hone visual tracking and hand-eye coordination driving the school bus and avoiding obstacles. These are just a few examples of the presented by the app's short, intuitive, simple-to-learn games.
