I had no idea that the average adult skin weighs 11 pounds (I knew it weighed a lot, but I didn't realize it was more than 10 pounds) and that you can't move your body while you dream.
I didn't even know there was a waterfall on Hawaii that sometimes goes up instead of down-and I've lived here in Hawaii all my life!
The boys and I learned so many cool things about animals, places, food, and so much more!
The app has a lot of other fun features, such as a Weird-o-meter, which allows you to rate how weird a fact is, and a list of all the Top Weird-o-meter facts.
The facts were large and clear for even little kids to read, and several pages of facts also had fun graphics.
The app is highly entertaining as well as educational. It stimulates conversation and could also result in even more independent fact-finding.
The Weird But True app is an app that the entire family can enjoy and learn from!
