Ginkgo Dino Introduces Kids to Cretaceous Period Dinosaurs

Ginkgo Dino Introduces Kids to Cretaceous Period Dinosaurs

Given the popularity of dinosaurs among kids, it's not surprising to find many apps about them. The latest app to catch my interest is Ginkgo Dino: Dinosaurs World Game for Children.

Developed by Moona Group, Ginkgo Dino introduces kids (and adults) to creatures that lived more than 70 million years ago. The app consists of two parts: an exploration game and an interactive encyclopedia for all ages, written and edited by paleontologists.

Explore the Cretaceous Period with Ginkgo

Upon starting the app, kids choose whether they want to play or read the encyclopedia. The Game takes place in an ancient forest where creatures of various shapes and sizes live. Kids move their finger across the screen to guide the app's namesake and mascot, Ginkgo, around the lush landscape. Whenever they see a twinkling star, they can move Ginkgo there to watch funny animations and listen to a short story about dinosaurs or other reptiles.
