One of our favorite features of the app was fixing all the different objects around the house and the realistic sounds of the tools as they worked. We loved that the tasks varied so you were not always doing the same task over and over again. My son also loved giving high fives to Dr Panda for a job well done! The three dimensional graphics in the app were animated and we saw familiar characters from the other Dr Panda apps and were very engaging for our testers. We also liked the reward system which gave you a choice of a sticker upon completion of a mini game to signify a job well done! My son also liked knowing that he was fixing things so he could help daddy in the future – although we were carefeul to explain that he should never use tools by himself. I also liked the integrated child lock which requires parents to tap on it a specific (random) number of times in order to gain access to external links – in here you can turn off the promotional screen which does lead to iTunes. Great way to practice speech and fine motor skills while using the app. We also enjoyed finding some of the hidden games like hanging the picture and picking our favorite one in the room with the fishtank.

He really enjoyed playing the mini-game which required you to brush the animals teeth as well as take the various mistakenly swallowed items out of the animals stomach using a magnet.

TribePlay was founded in 2008 and creates educational games for the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Android and is based in Chengdu, Western China. The app features a variety of animals who help your child lean to count, put puzzles together, match shapes, find the biggest or smallest animal, memory games and numbers. There are ten mini games within the app. Activities get progressively harder as your child masters the skills and earns animals to add to his own personal zoo. The app includes different languages to give your kid the first experience of hearing and speaking German, Japanese, French, Mandarin or Dutch. Named app of the week on Apple’s Appstore in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
