What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this educational matchup app will fascinate kids who are into dinosaurs. There are no ads or outside links. Youngest players will need parents to read the information to them. However, the sound effects might be too intense for preschoolers.

Is it any good?

This app is a cute matchup exercise and very cool dinosaur primer rolled into one. Every time kids successfully match the head, body and tail of one of 14 lizards they gain access to three pages of background. The writing is very clever and the illustrations are beautiful. The backgrounds and foregrounds are interchangeable, too, so you can place your dino in the swamp, canyon, forest or desert.
