I’m an adult and I love it!


I bought this for my 4 year-old daughter but I find myself exploring the possibilities of music making using this app. The sounds are wonderful and the animation is pleasing to watch. Unlike full-fledge music composition apps, you can’t really go wrong with almost any combination the user put together... it just sounds anywhere from acceptable to harmonious anyway you make it. My only hope is that the compositions can be converted to .wav or .mp3 files for export.

Great to hear this! Thank you. We will soon update the version, where you will be able to save a music video, of your composition, to your device ;)

Excellent for kids, but with surprising depth


BANDIMAL is the latest from Yatatoy, which makes some really beautiful apps for kids. I try to limit their screen time, but the Yatatoy apps, I’m happy to let them play.

This app feels like a spiritual sucessor to LOOPIMAL, another very cool looping/sequencer from the same team.

BANDIMAL adds a lot of interesting things: more sounds, more animations, drum kit and varying playback rates for the different voices, so compositions stay fresh and unpredictable. The interface is fully discoverable by a 4 year old (or even an adult), and the sounds are always pleasing.

It seems to perform best on newer hardware.

Thank you so much for this wonderful review!

Sound not working?


Was very excited to play with this app, however the sound does not seem to be working. I’ve restarted it, restarted my iPad, double checked my volume is on and working in other apps. Looking for an update that will hopefully fix this issue. Still want to try the app out, just hope a fix comes soon!
