“If all apps were like Tinybop’s, we wouldn’t worry so much about our kids staring at screens. In fact, we might even encourage it.” — Wired
“There are no goals, no ‘levels,’ no rewards. It's just there to be looked at, explored. I like that.” — NPR’s Robert Krulwich
Homes is the third app in the Explorer’s Library, a series of interactive playscapes that let kids dive deep into big ideas. Tinybop believes in parents and kids playing and learning together.
* 4 interactive homes include: a brownstone in Brooklyn, a ger in Mongolia, an adobe home in Guatemala, and a tower house in Yemen.

* Every home features working models of plumbing, electricity, and other utilities.

A dashboard allows you to follow and delete accounts, change preferences, download handbooks, learn about new updates and apps, and support your kids’ experience in all Tinybop apps.
To create a dashboard, tap the round icon in the lower left corner of your app’s home screen and follow the steps. You’ll only need to do this once, and then you’ll be able to access your dashboard in any Tinybop app on your device.
Support your kids’ learning with our free handbooks — they’re full of interaction hints, interesting facts, and discussion questions. Download The Homes Handbook in 12 languages, including English, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, and French, here: http://tinybop.com/handbooks.
