MathGirl Number Garden is a sneaky educational app masquerading as a fun game tailor made for girls. They might think they’re earning points to redeem for rainbows, flowers, and bunnies, but really they’re practicing arrays (a visual, right brain math exercise).
Why we like it:
The garden theme and pastel colors are so darn cute. Girls will be falling all over themselves to play for points and then redeem them in order to decorate their gardens. We especially liked “unlocking” the various high ticket items like soccer balls, tire swings, and ponds.
You can only buy one of each item. It’s a minor thing, but I kind of wanted to decorate my garden with 15 pink rabbits. Maybe that’s just me though.
