Keeping My Preschooler Busy Is So Hard

Keeping my rambunctious preschooler busy (why won’t he take a nap anymore?!) is a daily challenge, which makes it super hard to stay productive or even take a break. 

As a father of 3, I’ve learned that not all screen time is created equal. What my son needs is fun entertainment that will actually hold his attention (without frequent interruptions for ads and upsells) and that also helps him develop important skills like creativity, curiosity and problem solving.

And if it has trains, animals, or robots, then it’s an absolute home run.

Sago Mini World Saves the Day!

Adorably-designed for preschoolers ages 2-5, Sago Mini World gives kids unlimited access to a sweet collection of 30+ award-winning games – all in one kid-safe, awesome app.

Harnessing open-ended play, kids can explore and experiment at their own pace as they guide mini-friends – Harvey the dog, Jinja the cat, Robin the bird and Jack the rabbit – into adventures and activities.

Sago Mini World saved the day for me when my son recently fell off his balance bike, and I had to take him to urgent care. As we nervously waited our turn in line next to patients requesting COVID-19 tests, my son was able to remain calm and relaxed thanks to Sago Mini World, which was just what he needed.

Trucks, Trains, Planes, Boats & Spaceships!

Whether it’s blasting off into space, going camping, playing in the snow, operating diggers, driving trains, zooming around in planes, building rad robots, or becoming superheroes – there are games for every type of preschooler out there.

Here are Dadventures’ 5 favorite games in the Sago Mini World that have opened my preschoolers’ minds through fun, creativity and humor.


1. Trucks & Diggers
