In this animal game, the child is presented with four options: Cheetah, Elephant, Monkey, and Hippopotamus. Within the screen for each selection, three activities are available. First, the child may select a set of blocks, in which the emcee, Froggy, spells out the name of the animal while walking atop the letters as they are highlighted. Second, the child may select “Froggy’s Fun Facts” in which Froggy describes a tidbit about the animal’s life history and habits. Finally, the child may touch the cartoon drawing of the animal to elicit a monkey’s howl, cheetah’s purr, elephant’s trumpet or hippopotamus’….grunt?
There’s really not much to this app, but it is cute, has clean and bright cartoon graphics and is engaging enough for the toddler set. My 2.5-year old really enjoyed prompting the animal sounds and giggled gleefully at Froggy’s speeches. The names of the four animals have now been added to her ever-growing vocabulary, and she has her heart set on getting a hippopotamus!
