This game makes my 10 month old giggle and he really enjoys it. It does, however, boggle my mind that a game geared towards teaching kids new words has such incomprehensibly bad pronunciation of those words! “Goat” sounds like “go” — the “t” sound is nonexistent! What??

We’ve loved this app for years. It’s the only thing my kids are allowed to do on my phone. Very educational! Since I updated to the iPhone X, I haven’t been able to exit the app without restarting my phone! Frustrating!

The app is really good and is perfect to distract my son for a few minutes. The reason I am giving it one star is because of the child they used a child voice with a lisp. Kids will begin to imitate the voices and will then, in turn, talk in a lisp as well. They need to redo the speech to have proper pronunciations of words. This is coming from a former teacher who dealt with children with speech problems.

My daughter could play this all day long. We don’t let her, but she could. She’s sitting here right now, and she likes it so much she’s trying to pull my iPad away so she can play more.

There is no true interactivity or creativity to this app. It’s just one tap per page, then you see the animal and its name, hear a typical sound, and hear the name. No options (such as don’t show the name so the child has a chance to say it, or don’t show the spelling). No exploring and getting different results. It’s almost as passive as television. I would never have bought the app if the description had been clear or if it had included a sample video. I bought a peekaboo bundle as my first purchase to amuse a four year old, and I was so disappointed because it was a waste of money. I was fooled by the 4+ age rating, which I now guess is the youngest rating on the Apple store. I think any child over two would be instantly bored by this app. It’s not properly called a game, since the kid has nothing to do.

Because if they had, parents would have asked for kids who can actually pronounce the words to say the animals’ names. That’s my one irritation, but what else is this app teaching them other than animal names? So when they say “seep” instead of “sheep,” I want to throttle someone. Just get a kid that can actually say the names to say them! Is that so hard?! You’re basically teaching them the wrong words.

I’m not sure if the creator of this app knows how useful this app is in speech therapy. I use this with my preschoolers and my students with autism LOVE this app. I use it as a reinforcer! Thanks for helping me get through my sessions!

I'm not sure why people think its cute to use little lids voices to talk on these apps. The pronunciation of the animal names is either hard to discriminate because they are exaggerating the word (pig) or the child has a speech problem (seep for sheep or r distortions). As a speech therapist I feel that true apps are often used to teach vocabulary and every effort should be made to make sure the words are pronounced correctly. Using little kids is just a bad idea.

I was really disappointed in this game/app. There is really nothing to it. My 2 year old even cries if you open it, because he doesn’t want to “play” it. I had to double check if it was at least a free app - too bad it wasn’t.
