A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of play

The puzzles are extraordinarily easy to learn and physically require nothing more than a series of screen touches.

Violence & scariness
Sexy stuff
Language

Roosters are called cocks, a legitimate label, but one that might cause some tittering from older siblings.

Consumerism

The app's opening screen has a start button surrounded by eight clickable ads for the developer's other games. Also, a link in the "How to Play?" area takes users to the App Store page listing the company's other products.

Drinking, drugs & smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that ABBY MONKEY - Animal Games For Kids HD by 22learn is a collection of educational games for the iPad. The app offers four selections letting children match pictures to shadow images, play a game of animal bingo (where they must pick the animal voiced by the app), match pictures to a written word, and play the classic concentration card game. Parent should note that the first page of the app has several buttons
featuring other apps from the publisher; clicking on them removes
players from the app and sends them to the iTunes App Store. There is also a free trial version of the app.

Is it any good?

The name's a mouthful, but ABBY MONKEY - Animal Games For Kids HD by 22learn is a good collection of educational games for children with a good variety of settings so parents can gradually ramp up the difficulty to keep kids challenged. For example, the number of cards in the Animatch game (essentially the classic card game of concentration) can range from 8 to 18. And the reading of words can be toggled off and on for kids who know the words. The cartoon critters you'll encounter are charming, and the game greatly encourages children as they get answers right. The promotional links at the start of the app are a bit too much, but it's not enough to detract from the quality of the games; instructing kids to tap "start" instead of the colorful
boxes should help.
By the time they tire of this app, kids can learn up to 80 different animals.
