Bad update


Have *LOVED* this app for years but it recently updated and now it won't open at all. Very disappointed!



I don't know what app these other people are reviewing. There are only four scenes and these are just different quadrants of the space around the drain. It's very easy to know what is going to happen next. It's very boring - my 10 month old found it boring after less than 2 minutes and she will play other (better) apps for a long time. The interactivity is very limited and there are only two "projects" to work on (collecting peanuts and eggs) and I have yet to figure out if there is ever a "reward" for collecting the eggs. The bug voice is much too soft and very difficult to hear relative to the other sound effects. This is NOT a storybook. "the itsy bitsy spider" is sung by someone with a ridiculous and difficult to understand voice (there is no way young children would be able to understand him) and the spider moves up and down the drain and into the garden. Itsy bitsy spider is a short poem - not a story. I assumed, based on the claim that this was a story book, that they had taken the poem as inspiration for a story. Not at all. I think if it was 2009, I might be impressed. In 2012, it gets a star for having pretty graphics and that's it. As a learning tool it's totally useless and definitely not worth $2. You can't even make it more advanced by buying additional levels. Huge disappointment.

We play with this every day!

My daughter is 2 1/2 and loves this app- I wish we could find more entertaining books like this one! Ay first I couldn't believe the music they used.... but it's perfect and we try to make the spider move to the beat of the music. There is water that comes down the spout and you can touch it and hear the water rushing. Just when you think you have discovered all the cute little surprises that you can make happen...you find more! It's silly but fun to hunt the colored eggs and have the spider take them back up the water spout. On the roof is a little squirrel that will count nuts & there are hats that drop on the spider when you touch them- it's something we do every night before bedtime and really worth the price.
