Good idea


It's a good idea and I like the concept, but for an app geared towards kids "5 and under" it's disappointing the plant and tree names can't be spoken/read to the child. My 4 year old certainly can't read these big words. It's a little confusing also to navigate and figure out what exactly you're doing. Hope it gets better, I do like the concept!

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback! We're always listening. We design our apps with the hope that parents and kids will play together — so that children can explore and discover lots on their own but ask parents questions when they have them. Did you see our free handbook (in the dashboard or parent's section of your app) with interaction tips and more information? If not, you may find it helpful:

Love it


Gorgeous, meditative app shows kids different biomes, flora and fauna and how seasons change. Very unique app- not sure I've seen anything quite like it. Recommend!!

Thank you so much! 🙌

What a beautiful app!


This app has amazing attention to detail, from the beautiful artwork to the sound design. My kids love making the animals run around and go underground. The animal sounds have them cracking up. The labels are great for teaching them about plant parts, which they’ve also been learning in school. This app has kept them occupied of hours.
