Dear Moms,

Hello!

I am Laura Nicols. I currently work in company APIX Educational Systems, the creators of TropicMind - an educational virtual world for kids. I am mom myself I know how important to you your children education is.

As we recently released our latest product TropicMind.com, we would find it very helpful to receive reasonable and honest moms feedback, so we could update the game to more suitable and beneficial for our kids :)

For every piece of useful and detailed feedback we are willing to give away 49.95 USD worth TropicMind.com 12-months membership card :))

We expect detailed, reasonable and honest overview of:

Things you / your kid like. Why? 

Things you / your kid dislike. Why?

Things you would do different.

Would you buy a membership for you children? Why?


More information for parents about virtual world of TropicMind - http://parents.tropicmind.com/

If you have questions please feel free to ask them here or contact me by email - laura@tropicmind.com

Thank you so much!

Best Regards,

Laura :)

 I just looked over it, and I'll have my kids play it, then give you their feedback.

Will have my son look this over in the morning..can someone like this so I can come back to it tommorow please

Ok I had my son go over it and so did I. The concept is great I love all the different subject types, especially the specific subjects like the games. My son loved the intro and the different choices. Mymmain question is if there is any way to offer this for the ipad or android. I had to drag out my laptop for him to use since now we each have a tablet and/or ipad iphone. I like that there isa free version as well it would definitly make me have him use this and even incorporate it into our curriculum this year. I would definitly consider a membership but would probably be more apt to purchasing a month to month rathern than a yearly membership. My son loved all the interactions and the colorful characters. I love all the science concepts that they offer which are super easy fot my 6 year old to understand. I can never find so many science concepts in one area.

Update: I did get it to work on my husbands tablet since his does offer flash.

 @marrionsmomm thank you for your honest answer, really appreciated. Were there any things your kid/you did not like, or maybe found difficult to use? :)

I'll have DS check it out next week when he gets home.  I think it looks really interesting.  If he likes it and the content is as up to par as it looks like it will be then I would consider getting him a membership.
