This is like no app you have seen. The graphics are amazingly realistic and the opportunity to "sell" (at an imaginary auction) the wares after creating them is exhilarating. Let's Create! Pottery goes one step further than most other creativity apps and offers 3D printing of your child's creation. What an incredible way to preserve that precious piece of art. This app has a lite version available which is more than sufficient to satisfy your child's art expression needs. I dare say you will be purchasing the full version in no time, however.
External links to an online guide on the developer's website and to other apps by the same developer on Google Play. There is also a link to the global gallery of pots, and to Sculpteo from whom you can order a 3D printout of the pot.

This is the very first app my 13 year old son bought for himself. He had played the lite version for weeks, possibly months, and was ready to extend himself and add more creativity options. Back then, the option to order a 3D printout of a pot did not exist, but once I tell him that it is now available, I know what he will be saving his pocket money for! The best Mother's Day present I ever got was a custom designed Lego set, that my son had ordered from Lego Digital Designer. Perhaps this year I will receive a 3D printout of one of his pots? I can but hope!
Let's Create! Pottery begins with a tutorial, walking the player through the basics of creating and decorating a pot. Pots are then requested by Aunt Chloe and bought by Rebecca. As word gets out, the buyer base increases, and so does income. Gaming money earned goes towards purchasing materials (clay, porcelain etc.), ornaments (handles, lids, etc.), glazes (colors), and brushes (stencils). Once your child completes a pot, they have the options to fulfil orders, take photos, sell at auction or printout (purchased through Sculpteo).
Sculpting clay is therapeutic in real life, and crafting pots in Let's Create! Pottery is just as relaxing and your children will enjoy showing off their creations, and the money they have earned from selling their wares. Definitely a must-have app!
