A lot of fun, great sounds...
This is a lot of fun to play with, and the sounds are great. I showed it to my neighbors' kids and couldn't get it back. The little kids (age 2 to 4) were so excited about the pictures and screamed with excitement when they started playing the sounds, especially when they played them all at once. Then they started playing the sounds individually and telling me what the animal was (“Cow!”). The older ones (between 10 and 12) loved the interaction, but to my surprise were also very interested in what they learned in the text part and actually devised a game around it that they played among themselves. The puzzle is very nice, and is probably the most adult part of the app. If you like puzzles, it's great; although it's actually pretty hard! I’ve also done some DJ’ing with the different animal sounds, which is fun.
Farm animals review
We love this app. My kids, who are adolescents love this. They have quizzed each other on little known facts about the animals...who knew that cows could operate a lever to a drinking fountain, or that pigs dream. The barnyard sounds are great fun, and work especially for younger children. My kids time each other on how quickly they can do the puzzles, some more difficult than others. And it is a great way to bring some aspect of farm animals into our urban lives.
So much fun!
This app just like the baby animals one is so much fun and educational at the same time! I love this app and so do all the kids in my life! Fantastic!
