This app definitely will work best when sharing with others and adults, with good opportunities available for children to work together to create their own designs. Children are given shapes of cars and they must find the shape to make the car. Alternatively they can entirely make their own up. There are lots of different options and children can use rich language to describe what shapes/items they are looking for. As there are lots of car options available there are great opportunities to build vocabulary by adding new words i.e. submarine/anchor. Children can then choose the backdrop for their cars and talk about different environments.
