Updated to play better with our new Tinybop apps, Homes, Simple Machines, and The Robot Factory.
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.
A very unique app
I am mostly impressed at how this app does not feel the need to speak down to my kids. It has a very sophisticated design and interface that they love to engage with. Our favorite part is planting acorns and watching them grow through the seasons. I highly recommend it for anyone with a childlike curiosity.
Patience pays off
I can see why someone would view this app and get frustrated immediately, but the magic lies in patience. Once my little ones experimented with this app for a little while, they were unlocking all sorts of wonders! Love that its teaching our kids to be less reliant on instant gratification.
