I love this app! Each of the 60 levels requires you to draw a shape, the swipe to knock it into a paint balloon and fill a doodle. The more of the doodle you fill, the more stars you earn. Problem-solving just became a whole lot of fun.
Dr Panda has left the hospital and set himself up in a restaurant. Kids love mastering the 10 recipes to feed their guests, playing the three mini games and immersing themselves in this highly interactive game. My kids love the game, I love the ad and in-app purchase-free zone!

This interactive book was very well received by my sons. The reader needs to tickle, shake, rub, cut and colour various items for the story to progress, a fact which young children seemed to love. The app contains 5 stories, one extra game and comes very highly recommended by me!
To The Farm! is a great kids' e-book which manages to be educational and fun! With 5 user modes, it can be tailored to your child's reading level, in each of six languages.
