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.

QUALITY

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.
