  1. Solar System
  2. Universe
  3. Space Related Technology
  4. Space Explorers


How do I use it with my 7year old –

  1. I let him explore on his own a couple of times, So that he gets familiar with it.
  2. We take a card, like he has, solar eclipse to study for his EVE. We watch how solar eclipse happens; then we hear about the details of it. Visual Learning is so much more effective and easier for the little minds because they learn by visualizing what actually happens as opposed to reading about it.
  3. We also learn spellings, see how equipment work and learn more about many prominent Space Explorers.

All in all, Play Shifu’s Space explorer box is amazing, challenging for my kids, and packs a lot of information. It is travel friendly, and can be taken anywhere and the best part it is when I am using it, I do not NEED Wi-Fi after the installation.

Play Shifu Space Explorer Box is a great Box for kids and a great gifting option as well.

Play Shifu – Travel – Review

Hello Lovely Mommas,  Today I am going to talk about this new game on the block, PLAY SHIFU – Travel Box.

Play Shifu Travel Box

What is Play Shifu?

Play Shifu is an Augumented Reality Enabled Game for Kids.

The Play Shifu app works with all Android and iOS mobiles and tablets and the game is good for kids aged 2 to 10 years. No, it is not another APP, it is a learning resource for kids, and an amazing concept which has equal amounts of fun and a learning experience for the kids.

What’s inside the box?

Inside the Travel Box – Play Shifu
I posted a little unboxing video on my Instagram Page! Yes, Instagram gets the 1st look on everything I am talking about, so follow me, to get a sneak peak into the life and  times of The Reading Momster, more personal than any other account and join an amazing community of supportive Mommy-Instagrammers.

So, back to unboxing. you get what you see in the image. You get a box, with all the instructions and a QRCode on the fornt flap.

Also included in this box are- \

  1. 60 vehicle cards
  2. 1 Travel pouch
  3. an IPad/Phone Stand.

The box is sturdy and beautifully designed. And if you feel the need to throw away the box because of space constraints, you can store the stand and the cards in the Pouch provided, how thoughtful is that. this same pouch comes in handy when you are travelling, a total win win for a Mom.

How does Play Shifu work?

  •  Download the Play Shifu App from the Playstore/App Store.
  • Initualize the app, it will ask the QRCode
  • Scan the code from inside the box.
  • Setup over, switch off Wifi, you don’t need it anymore.
  • Place Ipad / phone on stand.  Place the card you want to see, and see the magic unfold.
  • How it Works – Play Shifu

Some cards have puzzles, some have activity. All cards tell –

  • What the vehicles name is
  • a little info about the vehicle.
  • how it is used
  • where it is used.

There were so many vehicles, I personally did not even know about, i shot a short video to give you a sneak peak of how it works. The video is amateurish but still will give you a fair idea. (There is music added to the video)

How can you play with Play Shifu?

Best thing about Play Shifu Travel Box was Aarya was amazed at all the vehicles he did not know about! Yes, my 7 year old had no idea what a Catamaran was. It was fun for him too.


Tiny tots will have fun seeing the vehicles, memorizing their names, and visualizing how things work. I like to follow the Montessori 3 period lesson and have been working with just 3 vehicle on a daily basis, I let her have 3 cards of her choosing. then,

  • I name the 1st card thrice.
  • I let her try and name it too.
  • then she sees whether the vehicle runs on land, water or air.
  • then she sees how it works.

we repeat this for all 3 cards. And we repeat it for as many days as is necessary, until she masters the names and other info.


We play a little I-Spy Game. For Beginners,

  • I lay out 3 to 5 cards
  • I say – ” I spy with my little eye something that travels on road”
  • I let her check if she is right, by checking the app.

For older kids, you can add ” I spy with my little eye a vehicle whose nae starts with C” .


I give her 10 cards and we sort them by Land, water or Air

There are so many more hands-on ways to extend your learning activities with your toddler and your older kids. I play similar but more advanced game with Aarya. He is a more visual learner, and the app has lots of information for him to learn and explore

Cons of Play Shifu

I really loved the concept, its flexibility and how we use screen time to our advantage. also the fact that it is not connected to internet, and there are no links where my kids would wander off. But Play Shifu has a lot of scope to better their application and app. I am sure there will be lot more extensions coming in the future which will make it even more enjoyable for this generation of kids.
