Good but bad🙂🙁


This app is great I ❤️ using it, but can you please give more animals to work with instead of just 🐈 and 🦖. If you could fix this or make the other app cheaper it would be nice. One last thing can you get more like more pets like 🦎, 🐹, 🐢, and some others thank you.

P.S I am 11

Creative and Smart Play!

Try Dr. PetPlay. It’s a rocking great app that gets kids to use their imaginations. It’s the best of a non-existent app category called something like “Apps that Enhance Rather Than Replace Play”.

Garbage teaser app


You can only take care of two animals with free version. Application is a vet checklist, pointless for younger children.
