Customer Reviews

Much Improved!

This is a cute app with adorable artwork and very appealing narration. I had a bug in the last version but customer service was excellent. They notified me that an update was released, and sure enough, it fixed the crash situation. I highly recommend this app if you have a computer-savvy little pre-schooler like mine. She loves it!

Goldi-lame

No good. Cute illustrations, but that's all it's got going for it. I don't like the prose. I don't like the narration. I mean, the animation doesn't even match up with the sound properly.

I know it was free, but it wasn't even worth keeping. My kindergarten students would have been bored to tears...

Waste of money

Animation is weird, very dated looking graphics. This is something I would expect to see on an Apple IIe, not a Mac. Wouldn't be worth it even if it were free.
