Play Shifu Travel: Play Shifu Augmented Reality Games for Kids

play shifu review playshifu travel 3

Undeniably, we live in a world that’s moving too fast. We want our Pizzas in 30 minutes or less, our shopping to be delivered in 2 days or less, our increments to happen every year or even less. And to no one’s surprise, that’s how our kids want things too. The generation today is a lot smarter than the previous one, and if you just nodded your head, I know you agree too. The current generation is a gadget freak – it wouldn’t be too much of a surprise if they pulled a trick or two on your phone or tab that you’d never seen before. Screen time, even though limited, plays a huge role in how soon kids learn. Wrecking the market and taking the step ahead are Augmented Reality games, like that of Play Shifu and today, I wish to share a Play Shifu Travel set review with my readers.

About Play Shifu

Play Shifu makes Augmented Reality games that help children learn better. Designed by early childhood experts and parents, the games contain a set of cards that can be viewed through a specific mobile phone app. The app is available on both, iOs as well as Andorid Platforms.

Contents of the Game Pack

I received the TRAVEL box from Playshifu. The box consisted of:

  • 60 Square Cards with travel based images on them
  • A cloth pouch
  • Platic tray for holding the cards
  • A mobile stand holder (placed in the pouch)
  • Box with magnetic lid for containing all of these
  • Instruction booklet

How Does a Play Shifu Game Work?

The instruction booklet is very easy to follow. Primarily, you would need to install the Play Shifu app.

Once the card is viewed in the installed app, the contents of the card come alive. They become 3D images and begin to animate.  They show the functioning of the object in the card, help the child carry out certain function like clicking to enable further activity of the animated object

The Twinadoes’ Experience with the Play Shifu Travel Set

  • The set was convenient to engage both of them at the same time
  • It can be viewed and interacted with for hours too, so more time to engage the kid in an activity
  • The interface is kind of laggy. This could be because of my handset as well
  • The learning from the app is quite decent – from learning new words, travel mediums, and mini-games to help learn spellings as well
  • Once the app and all are configured, you don’t really need the cards all the time. You can run the program without having to place the card in front of the camera every time

  • It only has 3 registrations allowed. Beyond that, the box is not an augmented reality game anymore. Wish there was a way to renew your membership code for usage beyond 3. There are smart kids who delete the app just for fun (yeah, mine included)
  • An adult may need to help the children play with the cards, but in the library mode (playing without cards) children can play on their own if they can operate regular apps or play youtube videos on the phone.
  • There are no additional purchases and absolutely no cross-promotional ads. That is great!

Mummasaurus’ Verdict

I find the Play Shifu Travel Set very interactive and recommend it. The Play Shifu Travel Set is a great way to learn with the help of Augmented Reality.

  1. Those augmented reality games look fun! The kids will enjoy this for sure. No more dull moments and tantrums for sure.

  2. Augmented reality based kids products are quite in trend these days. We have also used Playshifu and loved how your child gets to learn about basic things in a innovative way.

  3. wow I would love to buy this one. My boy is full of energy even at 12 in the night good to keep him engaged around 9 so that he sleeps on time.
