In this wonderful educational app, your kids will once again spend time with their beloved Max & Ruby (the clever brother and sister bunnies) who in this app will explain all sorts of things about science! Of course, the adventure is about having fun while learning subconsciously! The two friendly bunnies will teach 2 important concepts: (1) the properties of liquids and (2) the motion of objects! As is the case with this educational series, you get to try out the game for free (including 5 levels), before unlocking the full version (over 40 levels in 2 games). All these levels and games are available with just one in-app purchase of $2.99! The learning advantages to your children and abundance of activities are so worth it!

The game is loaded with colorful graphics and the soft soothing voices of Max and Ruby. There are many encouraging words spoken throughout as kids perform the activities correctly. On your opening screen, you'll see 3 possible activities: Water Blast, Ball-O-Rama and Make Believe. Tap Water Blast and start with Level 1. Be sure to register before beginning the games. By doing so, you will be able to track your child's progress and rewards throughout time spent on the game.
In the first concept of Properties of Water - Water Blast, kids must connect the right pipes and place the temperature convertors correctly. I love the way this app combines so many types of entertainment with learning. In Water Blast, fitting the pipes together involves a form of jigsaw puzzle action where you slide the right water pipe into place. Then the fun only increases as you touch the faucet to move the water through the connected pipes. Be rewarded with cute scenes such as the bunnies running through a sprinkler or floating around in a kiddie pool. What happens when the cold water heats up and turns into gas? Well that's another valuable lesson kids will learn here. There are rewards your child can earn after completing 3 levels at a time. Be patient because the fun gets turned up a notch with every reward. The bunnies offer plenty of help if you get stuck!
In the second concept of Force and Motion - Ball-O-Rama, children must place balls in the holes on the wooden board. The further back you place the ball, the more force it will have in going further. You'll hear lots of encouragement such as, "You can do it!" or "I believe in you". Watch and hear the ball pinging off the walls.
After playing with these learning games, I just had to check out the Make Believe Game. Touch an image on the top of your screen and watch it move it around in the garden. See the music book come to land on a piano which Ruby will play. Tap the bird to see it fly around. When you tap the clown, Ruby becomes a queen playing with a ball. All the colors, sounds, animations and actions are superbly suited to young children. In fact, there is never a dull minute when playing and learning with Max and Ruby!
