Lots of fun, safe, interactive learning for your little ones!

Great learning app for young children that can be used with or without the awesome Bluebee Pal educational bluetooth “talking plush animals”. The app features fun mini games, a house to explore, and plenty of vocabulary enrichment activities! As a Speech Language Pathologist, I love to use this app in our classroom, along with our Bluebee Pals, in my speech therapy sessions. Highly recommended!

These simple games and interactions are solid content for parents of early app users. Parents of young children are frequently looking for simple, educational apps for their devices that teach their kids something new. The content in the app is basic and appropriate for little kids who are just beginning to interact with apps, through tapping, swiping, and dragging icons with their fingers. Kids who struggle with listening and following directions may need some guidance, because if they don't follow the directions in certain rooms, they won't be able to access all of the content. Some of the icons in the games are small and difficult to locate, and therefore a challenge to tap and drag to a specific location, which could be frustrating for kids. While repetition is good for learning, and there are a lot of mini-game options located in the "playroom," each game includes only one or two different trials, which limits replay value. The Bluebee Pals app was primarily created to work with a stuffed animal toy, but while the toy might enhance the content, it certainly isn't required. Spend time with young kids helping them play the mini-games and exploring the app. While the content is very basic, there's absolutely a lot to explore 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.
