With three ways to play, children can learn the names of a wide variety of animals in several languages, pair one animal half with its matching half to create a complete image, and mix two different animals together to create their very own “Critteroo” that can be named, saved, and shared over 1,000 Critteroo combinations!

What's New in Version 1.2
Enjoy Critteroos! Please take a moment to rate us in the App Store...
My children love this app. It's simple, clear, and engaging.
They love sharing their mixed up critteroos with everyone, and they also get great satisfaction in making the right pairs and building points. They know the names of the animals already, but this app is helping them spell those names too.
The animal graphics are terrifically detailed and rich on the iPad, and the interaction is simple and smart.
