Kids can help Little Critter choose the route the family will take and explore the countryside, the city, the beach and more; fix the car when it breaks down; move a horse stuck in the middle of the road; feed the seagulls; and even find time to grab a hot dog! All this while playing lots of games with Little Sister along the way to pass the time!

Love this app! My 2 1/2 year-old was immediately engaged in the interactive scenes. Although he could navigate by himself after a brief learning period, I did have to help him with some of the games that were beyond him, conceptually. Several of the games were just right for him. This makes me think the app would be great for slightly older kids too. There are little colored dots that periodically appear on each scene indicating where kids can touch to makes things happen. The dots were either too small or appeared too briefly for my little one to benefit. Wish they stayed visible on the scene until after you access them. Would love to find more apps like this!

Great for my 4-5 year old!

Does a great job with concepts, and doesn't waste time with senseless clicking. Each action and step are meaningful.

Super fun

It has mini games and the other apps.
