Customer Reviews


Not a good value. There are plenty of free and less expensive apps that offer this type of gameplay. This app is just riding on the popularity of the Curious George phenomenon.
The artwork and voices also are not consistent with the other Curious George media out there, it's as if this was produced by a stay at home dad with nothing better to do.
My 25 month old solved all of the puzzles within the first 15 minutes of play.
The only silver lining to this app is that after the child "assembles" a character by means of an unoriginal matching shapes exercise, they are rewarded by being able to interact with the character in fun ways.

Best Toddler App!

My two year old loves this app! I agree with the latest review that the narration is educational. Only one of the levels has tracing shapes which is still difficult for her. She also loves the games you can play after the puzzle is finished. Lots of thought put into this app. For instance, being able to feed the dinosaur a piece of meat! Very cute app! We love the update that included a new puzzle. Keep em coming!

Solid kids' app!

Well done, with a variety of activities -- and very good production values.

Only one really annoying problem: the 'back to menu' button in the upper-left corner gets bumped by my toddler's finger ALL THE TIME simply by the way he holds the phone. He gets halfway thru a level and it suddenly kicks him out. Two recommendations: move the button, and/or display a confirmation before returning to the menu.
