Ratings and Reviews
Worth every penny!
This is one of the best! My little one could play it over and over again. The demo video doesn't do it justice. You can choose to have the game narrate the story/texts while highlighting the words in red to allow for your child to follow along. Love the ability to change paths and produce different outcomes. Can't wait for more!
Not modern, still stuck in traditional roles, scary stuff still intact
I was very excited about these modernized stories as they promoted moving out of gender stereo types, removed the scary aspects and were in a modern setting. So, I downloaded The Three Little Pigs.
It was HUGELY disappointing and appalling from the start:
1. Mom is vacuuming while dad is watching tv. Looks like Leave it to Beaver. Decidedly not modern.
2. Mom says it is time for kids to go out into the world on their own... KIDS! What little kid goes out into the world on their own AND builds a house?
3. The littlest boy says it will be an adventure, the middle girl says she will do all the cleaning if she can stay home and the oldest boy asks who will wash his sock. What?! Hello old stereotypes!
4. Each pig builds a house with no effort and no help. The girl pig says her “tiny house” is cute. More old gender stereotypes. The youngest pig builds a huge three story brick house... with similar effort as others... just throwing up the materials that becomes the house. Where is the cooperation of helping each other? Where is the point of the story about the laziness of building quick is less durable?
5. The wolf in a cake van with no windows chases the pigs. Scary child abduction scenario. Why is the Big Bad Wolf still portrayed as a middle aged guy and why make him look like a child abductor?
6. The wolf goes down the chimney and scalds his bottom in a pot of hot water that is being cooked over a wood burning kitchen stove. How is that modern? At least he doesn’t get cooked.
This story is ridiculous and I cannot believe I spent $5 on it!
Also a very traditionally linear story line and uninteresting digital interaction.
My child will not be watching/ reading this as it has many terrible undercurrent messages. The original has a better message.
I originally heard about this app from a friend who thought it was cool that it was a "3D" app for kids. But once we bought it and tried it out with our 18 month old son... It was amazing how much the fact that it's 3D doesn't matter in the quality of the game. It adds a lot to the overall aesthetics of the game for sure, but what makes this game so good is how Nosy Crow has managed to take a few options and with a relatively small list of different sayings and movements make something that is incredibly playable, over and over again, and not just for kids.
