AppDictions App Review
Interactive stories are always an absolutely fantastic way of getting kids to use their imaginations and stay entertained. Treasure Kai is a fantastic treasure hunt story which allows kids to have some control over how the plot unfolds and contains plenty of fun animations and sounds which your children will love. Your kids take part in hunting for hidden gold coins by tapping on the chests. They can either read the story by themselves or (for younger audiences) have it read to them by the app itself, which is a brilliant feature if they are still learning to read or if you have no time to read it to them.Children are also encouraged to visit the Treasure Kai website in order to take part in other exciting and educational activities, such as playing the online game, watching fact videos, have a look behind the scenes and do word searches, mazes and crossword puzzles.
We would not, by any means, hold back on getting this app just for the pure entertainment and excitement that it brings to children – highly recommended!
