Ratings and Reviews

Great, but having to blow up the balloon can be a pain

Jola puss

My 2 and 4 year old both love this app. The only annoyance is the fact that you have to "blow up" the balloon, i.e. blow into the mic of the iphone. This seemed really funny to start with, but it's not so funny when your two year old dribbles into the phone...

A simple upgrade would be to make it possible to blow up the balloons by tapping on the screen -- this is already what you need to do to make the animal explode. I would then rate this 5 stars.

GREAT App, BUT for the money should get lots more animals

Pink Skye Mum

This is a great app - keeps the kids (& me!) amused (age 3, 7, 8) great interaction to blow the balloon up, shake to make the animal, then by touching the screen to get the animals to move and make noises - FANTASTIC!! BUT................ for the cost (£1.19) there really should be LOTS MORE balloon animals. Love it - looking forward to updates with more animals please :o) My kids are requestig dolphin, elephant, rabbit, lion ...... the list is endless! Well done IDEO more animals please :o)

Great simple game for children


Was shown this by a friend and bought it on the iPad and phone. Lovely little app that keeps my 3 year old and friends kids quiet. Very easy to use and suited to younger kids, also the photo feature is great fun... however it is limited to the same handful of animals and photo backgrounds so would be nice to see some new ones or new features added.
