Cute, but some drawbacks

This is definitely a cute app, but it has some issues that make it a little tricky for younger/impatient toddlers -- the pages have to load all the way before you can really make any of the mini animations within each page work -- hard for an impatient toddler to understand! And the mini animations seem to require a pretty light/sensitive touch to work -- my daughter mashing her finger on them never really did the trick. Also, it seemed extremely easy to flip back a page or even back to the home screen by accident/just touching the wrong place briefly. Can't tell you how many times we had to start over -- and then each page has to load before you can flip forward again. Last but definitely not least, there doesn't appear to be any volume control on the app itself, and it has LOTS of sound effects, some of which get very loud.
