Bottom Line: Take a sweet little adventure through Britain with Eric and his adorable puppy, Bruce. With lots of interactive elements and some quaint side adventures, Eric & Bruce Travel to Britain is an entertaining way to introduce your little one to a bit of British culture while having lots of fun exploring all the action in the app.
Purpose of App: Free play for kids age 5 and under. Little users can take care of five animals as they dive into three pools.
Strengths: Endless possibilities through free play as the characters play dress-up in the locker room, have a snack at the pool, or jump off the diving board. All the fun animation we've come to expect from Dr. Panda and TribePlay.
Weaknesses: Not as thorough as previous Dr. Panda offerings. Interactions with characters are not based on problem-solving, and the pool areas are all a bit too similar. Moving the characters around doesn't always work as smoothly as it should.
Suggested Audience: Preschoolers age 5 and under
Number of Reviewers: 5
Toca Boca apps are some of the best there are, consistently well-designed and great for young iDevice players. Toca House is one of my daughter's favorite Toca Boca apps. If you're not sure about it just from the app description, don't worry! Watch Ellie's great demo video in order to see what's inside the app!
The demo video is a good way to see what the app actually looks like, without first buying and downloading the app. Make a better decision by watching this video!
Do you have a little one who loves trucks? Big trucks, little trucks, really any kind of trucks? If your preschooler is one of those kids who loves all things that go, then you are going to want to give Trucks Builder a whirl. Trucks Builder introduces over 70 different vehicles to delight your little learner. This free app also has the BabyFirst seal of approval, being one of the first apps featured on their newly launched BabyFirst Mobile App Discovery Network.
I'd not heard of Tree Fu Tom until I watched Ellie's app video, but I learned that it's a show on BBC and Sprout. This app is developed by one of our favorite developers, Cupcake Digital, and features several different interactive activities. Tree Fu Tom Squizzle Quest is a great app for those who love Tree Fu Tom, but all kids from about 2-6 years old will likely enjoy this, even if they've not yet met Tom. Watch Ellie's video to see what's in the app before you download!
