Ratings and Reviews
Awesome songs but too much talking
I have mixed feelings about this app. The pros: the songs are fun and catchy, the movements are easy and vary widely. We’ve been using it since my now-6-month old was 3 months and she still gets excited. The cons: before and after each song there is an explanation of how the song benefits baby. This was interesting once, but hearing it every time is both unnecessary and annoying. Baby gets bored or starts looking for phone. I wish there was a way to mute narration. Also I would love a feature where you could build your own playlists or customize the ones the app presents.
I’d still recommend this app but with a few tweaks it could go from good to awesome.
