Now includes three new animals, an updated look, and new animations!
Inside a little bouncing barn, friendly farm animals are waiting to pop out and surprise your little one. Try and guess who they are; tap the doors to find out!
Work with your child to learn the names of animals and hear the sounds they make. Younger children will love opening the barn doors to find a new animal animation, as they learn about cause and effect and become familiar with animal names and sounds. Older children will enjoy guessing animals by sound, then seeing the animal names, which helps develop early literacy skills.
Multiple Language Features:
Press the Language button on the Options screen to try them out.
--Choose from the built-in narrators: child's voice in English; adult's voice in English or Spanish.
--Record your own voice: We added this feature so parents, children, and visiting relatives and friends can capture their own voices and star in Peekaboo Barn. Now you can record the animal names in your native language--or grandma's voice, or grandpa's--and, if you're recording a new language, you can save the appropriate written version too, and both will show up the next time you play. (Please note, we can only support the writing systems that are supported by your device.)
--Additional languages included with purchase: Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi, Japanese, Swedish, Dutch, Italian, German, French and UK English.

Ratings and Reviews
I’m a Speech-Language Pathologist and I work with preschool aged children (between the ages of birth to school-entry). I bought this app to use with the children on my caseload. I wanted to use it as a listening activity (e.g. listen to the animal sound and figure out what animal it is) then have the child I am working with name the animal before opening the barn door. I am very disappointed with the voices that are naming the animals. The number of sound errors made in the pronunciations provide a poor model for the children on my caseload whom I want to provide clear word models to. With the app as it is, I will not be using it in my therapy. I had hoped this would be a great app that I could recommend to my colleagues, but unfortunately I will not be able to do that.
Great app, there are other voices available
My kid loves the sounds it makes and has been practicing to replicate the animal noises. Some users pointed out how they were disappointed that it’s a child’s voice that pronounced the animals, but there is an option to change it. It’s located in the options menu, under languages. Funny how some parents are trying to teach their kids names, but they themselves don’t know how to look around the app for the options. The fruit doesn’t fall too far from the tree.
Voice needs to change
Great app minus the horrible pronunciations of the animal names. They should consider at least having a child that can say the animals names correctly... not call it a wabbit.
