What it is/what you do with it: a drawing/animation app with 30 drawing scenes + blank canvas.

Complete the scene (e.g. 'Who lives on the farm') using simple painting tools. Record your comments/narration while drawing. After the scene is completed you can replay it with the recorded commentary. The videos can be exported to the Camera Roll on the device.

What we liked: the concept. Good variety of storytelling prompts. Humor and fun factor. Ease of use. No distracting elements.

What we didn't like: no background music/sound effects (if you don't want to record your commentary).

Overall Score: 84/100

Best for: Interactive toys, Attention & concentration, Eye-hand coordination, Interaction
Video

What is it and what do you do with it: a simple interactive toy with about 20 interactions/animations.

Guide the bird around the scene by pointing at various objects. Discover interactions (simple animations: dancing, singing, splashing).

What we liked: the concept. Simple illustrations and animations. Number of interactions. Ease of use.

What we didn't like: we aren't quite sure about some of the interactions (eating a cupcake, pooping). The educational value could be better (no narration or spoken instructions or clues - we recommend parental assistance).

Best for: Interactive play, Attention & concentration, Creativity, Eye-hand coordination, Interaction

What is it and what do you do with it: assemble your robot friend by combining different parts: heads, arms and legs.

Then it's time for the robot party: cupcakes and other treats, silly music and some serious pinata punching and kicking.

What we liked: the concept. Simple scenes, interactions and mini-games suitable even for young kids. Simple illustrations and animations. Fun characters. Humor and fun factor. Ease of use. No ads or other distracting features.

What we didn't like: limited educational value (no narration or spoken instructions). We wish there was more variety in the scenes.
