App Friday: My Little Suitcase

Welcome to App Friday, our weekly link exchange of family-friendly apps. Today we are featuring My Little Suitcase, a kids app created by three parents in Northern California.

What is the game about?
In My Little Suitcase, kids get to choose a trip, pack their stuff, and then head out to the beach, snow, camp or a sleepover. The game, intended for children ages 2 to 6, is centered on a travel theme in hopes of encouraging exploration.

Why is it special?
We like that kids choose which items to pack in their suitcase, giving them a sense of independence for their virtual trip. We also enjoy seeing their curiosity develop when they ‘replay’ a trip with a different set of items. How will the beach scene look now? How will it be the same or different from the last trip I packed? This type of experimentation spurs the ultimate goal, which is to get the kids to imagine their own trips and destinations.

What’s in it for me?
Our team would like to grow this game over time, featuring new items to pack, and new trips to explore. To get your feedback on how to make this the best possible travel game for kids, we are offering FREE DOWNLOADS FROM THE APP STORE ON FRIDAY, MARCH 19th. So go ahead, give it a whirl and let us know what you think.
