Customer Reviews

Best kids app ever

Kids of all ages have loved this app. Best thing to give them when they are distracted or fighting and always keeps them interested. No special instructions necessary and they can be as creative as they choose. Soundtrack is soothing and fun. Best app I've ever purchased.

Absolutely Beautiful.

This is the most beautifully made app I think I've seen yet. Super clever and well designed. The transitions from scene to scene are breathtaking. I got it for my 1 year old baby girl but I can't stop fiddling with it. Good work on a thought provoking sense stimulating app!

Absolutely Get This!!!

My 8-12 month old was fascinated by this app. The transitions between animals are fantastic. Over a year after DL, this is still a favorite app because it's so creative. I like that it encourages learning through trial and error. Get it.
