ANIMAL PHONE is an attractive and fun app that allows kids to interact with pretend animals over a video phone type of toy. Tapping the animals allows kids to speak with them, but the gorilla only has a few movements and a few things to say. He will repeat back anything kids say to him, in a slightly lower/slower voice, but he will not have any significant response. Kids may tire of playing with just the one included animal, and will likely ask to purchase additional animal friends. This app doesn't stand very well on its own without the in-app purchases.

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.
