Dr. Panda Ice Cream Truck by Dr. Panda has you making your own ice cream using a variety of colors, mix-in’s such as fruit while whipping it up in a blender to make your favorite combinations. Once your ice cream is created you then add your toppings like squeeze on caramel or rainbow, sprinkles which include chocolate curls, and traditional sprinkles as well as the ability to top it with candy. After finishing the ice cream you tap on a bell and you help the character eat it before paying for the ice cream sundae. The payment for each sundae depends on the size, complexity and amount of toppings used. I have seen cones range from four to 31 coins depending on how you put it together.
My son enjoyed being an ice cream maker. He liked taking the different ice creams, adding toppings and “whipping” them together in the blender to make a sparkly creation. It was interesting to watch the Dr. Panda animals as you made the ice cream to see if they would like it. He also enjoyed creating different kinds of ice cream cones and mounting the ice cream higher and higher until you couldn’t add any more – I think he had over 10 scoops on one cone that he showed me – a feat to be sure.
I would love to see more items you could mix in when making your ice cream. Currently there are three different types of fruit,chocolate squares, almonds (or some type of nut) as well as chocolate. My son is nut allergic so he immediately decided he couldn’t use the nut topping in any of his ice cream creations which limited his choice of six even further down to five. Having more choices for mix-ins wouldn’t limit that as much. Also, it would be nice if there was a button to press which cleared the remaining ice cream so you could start over rather than having to continue to scoop it until it was gone. I’d also like to see different types of cones such as waffle cones for the creations as well as the addition of Dr. Panda shaped sprinkles!
Overall, this is a fun app that children will enjoy playing with and making their own special creations. My son enjoyed making a variety of creations and wondering what happens if you add this topping or that to his creation and seeing how many scoops of ice cream he could add.
