Ratings and Reviews
Good for toddlers
This game is simple enough my 2 year old is able to play without frustration. No extra levels just a repetitive play with simple commands and 1 option when touching an item to make is move.
Doesn't live up to other DuckDuck Moose apps
My 2.5 year old daughter really enjoys this app. And the music is pretty good. However, I have some concerns. The tow scene involves choosing an object to put in the road. Granted, the objects are funny, a stiletto shoe, an axe, an ice cream cone, but still, its not an ideal thing to suggest. The traffic scene does almost nothing but let cars bang into each other. Also not what we want to teach. But life lessons aside, this app misses so many opportunities. Two other duck duck moose apps - itsy bitsy spider and fish school are amazing in that everything you touch does something surprising or delightful. When I tried to apply this premise to Trucks, more often than not, nothing happened. And when something did happen, it was just "meh." in the dump truck scene there are Lego bricks and blue beans lying around to no purpose. A squirrel runs out for the red beans, but the blue ones are just scenery. To sum up, this app is pretty ok, there are 5 scenes to choose from and the cars are cool and the repetition appeals to the toddler set. So if you aren't expecting the same level of awesomeness that fish school or itsy bitsy spider has, you won't be disappointed.
Amazing app!! We LOVE it!!
Just wanted to let everyone know that this app is amazing and worth every cent!! The graphics are great, and the music in the background isn't annoying unlike some apps. My son is 3 and this is his favorite app on the iPad mini. It's very fun & I've found myself playing it as well. I hope everyone enjoys this app as much as we do. The other apps from the App creator are great too. Check it out!
