STORY ----------------------------------------------

When Kalley shows her dad her drawing for a new machine, he is baffled by the confusing collection of hammers, gears, fire, smoke and conveyors. As Kalley explains each part of her invention, the drawing comes to life even as its overall purpose becomes less and less clear to her dad. It is only when Kalley explains the machine’s final component that her master plan to keep her dad from commuting is revealed.


So, there really is a ‘Kalley’. She really drew a machine. Her dad couldn’t build it. So they made an app out of it instead. Full story at

FEATURES ----------------------------------------


Kalley’s Machine was crafted with interactivity as the first priority. Satisfyingly touchable controls put kids in charge of each twist and smash of the machine. Controls come in a wide machiney variety:

● Cranks
● Sliders
● Dials
● Levers
● Switches
● Buttons

With the machine, kids can:

● Smash Stuff
● Inflate Stuff
● Shrink Stuff
● Burn Stuff (or lightly toast it)
● Paint Stuff
● Grab Stuff
● Drop Stuff
● Mold Stuff Into Shapes
● Do A Few Other Things Including...


Kalley’s Machine is a story based on a 4 year-old girl’s drawing. As such, it includes cats. They are completely irrelevant to the story. However, they are way fun to harass.

Tease them. Scare them. Puzzle them. Adore them. We think you’ll love the cats.


Cuz it’s a story, right? Of course, you can read the story the old-fashioned way. But, to aid new readers, we’ve also included two helpful interactive story features:

● Read-to-Me, narrated by Kalley and her dad with highlighted words.
● Touch-to-Read, where words are spoken when they are touched.


Honestly, this app is not designed to be educational. It is designed to be fun.

However, we’d get an ‘F’ in marketing if we didn’t point out that the interactive medium offers kids great chances to explore some basic concepts which are both safer and less messy than their real-world alternatives. Creative parents may recognize the opportunity to discuss:

● Subtractive Color Mixing
● Pressure/Temperature Relationships
● Gear Ratios
● Air Pressure/Vacuums
● How Overcooking Can Burn Stuff


We have made this app super-safe for kids by having:

● No Ads
● No In-App-Purchases
● Parental Gates in Our Parents Section
