Go Fetch Some Sushi!

This app makes the player feel like part of the action on Fetch. We like to spread the pieces out all over the house and then run around trying to get sushi for the crew. It is fun math practice for the little guy.

Is It Any Good?

If you're motivated enough to do the pre-work to set up the game, FETCH! LUNCH RUSH is a truly novel way for kids to practice basic math and learn some relatively new technology, too. The game pieces have to be taped onto the wall or, more practically, spread out around the room. If the mobile device is going to be carried around the room and handed between players in the multi-player version, it could get risky for the device, especially since part of the game is to see how fast each player can arrive at the answers. As a result, teachers or parents who are thinking of using this as a multi-player game may want to consider setting some "careful carrying rules" for the mobile device being used. The math lessons may be limited in scope, but since this app is free and the idea is quite unique, it's definitely worth a play at least once.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
