Animal Band is a fun and easy music toy that encourages young children to explore music while listening to their favourite tunes. It's been a long day, and all the animals are feeling sleepy. As each loveable little character is woken up, it plays and sings along. But if you don't keep playing, the band nods back to sleep!

From the very first note, little ones will discover charming surprises in each 3D scene. They'll love creating their own musical arrangements: tapping and swiping on characters to make them play instruments, spin around, or go to sleep. And the more they play, the more fun they'll discover: having fun with mad mice, cheeky chicks and funny fish, playing with a bus, making a swing loop-the-loop, and racing a crazy chameleon on a bicycle!

The Animal Band app is designed to support and develop a range of key early learning goals:

• Animal Band helps children develop a lifelong love of playing and listening to music.
• Supports preschool music learning goals, such as singing simple songs and making musical and rhythmic sounds and beats.
• Helps develop language skills and vocabulary, by exposing children to nursery rhymes and songs.
• Fosters a child's concept of self-confidence, by giving them an active role in keeping the action going.
• Helps foster children's persistence and attentiveness, by keeping them engaged and focused.
• Supports the development of children's fine motor skills by getting them to tap and swipe the screen to elicit purposeful responses.

Animal Band is designed for preschoolers and music lovers of all ages, it includes the following features:

• Amazing animations: help 15 different animal characters dance and sing
• Beautifully illustrated 3D scenes packed with interactive musical elements
• Play along with the songs using each animal as a separate instrument
• Ideal for parents and children to play together
• Features charming musical soundtracks and playful sound effects
• Much-loved tunes including: The Wheels on the Bus, Old MacDonald, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Itsy Bitsy Spider and more

My son loves this app. It’s so adorable I must say I love it too!

I keep trying to purchase the full version and it’s not working. When I swipe to purchase in the prompted direction nothing happens. Please help me get the full version!

Hi Penelopeheather. Sorry you're having difficulties purchasing the full app. Please try deleting the app fully from your device, switching off your device for a few minutes, then re-installing it.

App purchase

This looks like a cute app but only has 2 songs to play unless you pay an additional 5.99 to get a few more songs. Perhaps there should be a notification that this is just a preview and costs 5.99 to get all the songs. From reading the description I had no idea there were only 2 songs available to listen to
