Keep the kids entertained for quite some time!

My daughter has really taken to the Plants HD app. I have been teaching her about plants life cycle through books and videos, but until now had no interest in. Plants HD through beautiful illustrations, adorable animation and creative music, it immediately got my daughter hooked on to playing as well as learning. This app is a great resource for teaching young children and of course it is sure to keep the kids entertained for quite some time!

Is It Any Good?

The life cycle of plants comes to life on PLANTS HD in a way that is likely to make a more memorable impression on most kids learning about this topic than more traditional resources. The game in which kids have to place images of the cycle in order is particularly helpful, and the photos with fun facts are pretty and interesting. Kids can earn coins by answering questions correctly, and the quizzes are challenging but not frustratingly so. Kids don't need to be a botanist to enjoy this app, nor will they be one after finishing playing it. But what they're likely to get from this app is a better understanding of the plant life cycle, appreciation for the beauty of plants, and some fun facts to impress you with the next time you're in the park or garden exploring nature together.

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.
