The software is a simulation game including many kinds of vegetables.Nowadays, children don’t have the chance to enjoy planting in traditional way. But they will know lots of vegetables and grow with them through this game. Besides,they can print 3D model of what they have planted by clicking “print” after finishing. The models will be shared to friends, or, if there are too many, the little can put them back into the printer from the top. What’s more, children can plant various kinds of vegetable at the same time since they have different growth cycle.
