Labo Car Designer Review – Perfect Way to Teach Kids to Draw

We are back with a quick review of Labo Car Designer, a cute little designing app by Labo Lado aimed at kids in the age group of 4 to 8. In the game, each player must pick a car type to start the journey. The app itself provides various choices: from fancy cars like shoe cars and shark cars to real ones such as ambulance, fire truck, and grocery vans. 



Gameplay

The main goal of the app is to design/color the chosen car type. When you choose the car, you basically get an outline along with wheels. It is your job to design/add other parts of the car. It can be as simple as a dot or you can aim higher and experiment.

Labo Car Designer, therefore, is a drawing app than a designing or coloring one. You can paint brushstrokes on your car and stick cute stickers of animals and birds. The ultimate goal is to turn the car into your own project. No matter how you design it, the car will run.

The next step is to take your car for a drive through the in-app cartoon town. Here you will come across a lot of obstacles such as mountains, water fountains, and other objects. You have to maneuver the car accordingly by tapping in front of the car. There is a lot to explore in this cartoon town as it also gets slightly complicated as you go on. But that is where the fun is.

Completing checkpoints gets you more stickers from the game studio. You can use these stickers to further improve the look of your car. 

Game Settings

Although there are not much in terms of game settings, we were pretty annoyed by the fact that there is no way to turn off the piano music that plays throughout the game. For a parent, it can be distressing. But, on the other hand, the game sounds – car noises and honks – are fun and add realism to the gameplay.

The app itself is made with kids in mind, so it’s easy on eyes and ears. The animations are sweet and colorful and are bound to bring a smile to your kids’ faces.

Access to social media via the app is possible, so we recommend caution there. Another issue is with some aesthetics that may not be problematic for kids. It’s just our adult aesthetic sense getting triggered.

Apart from the 4-8 years age group, we think Labo Car Designer is also suitable for kindergarten kids and preschoolers. It is child-friendly and can also act as a distraction. 

Conclusion

Lab Car Designer is a fantastic drawing app that will not only teach your kids to draw fancy cars with a touch of cartoon but also excite them into the world of designing. Who knows it can be a starting point for a design career for your kid?

Get the app today from the Apple App Store.
