Is It Any Good?

Although this popular title may not give your preschooler a head start toward medical or veterinary school, it's likely to foster an interest in animal care and teach some simple skills. Unlike other similar apps, this one doesn't offer in-app purchases or other nickel-and-dime elements, which is refreshing and makes the play experience more fun, though the sticker price might initially put off some parents. However, because the badge book and added incentive of winning a prize adds replay value to an app that could feel repetitive, it's possible to get your money's worth. As on the show, there are positive role models, messages of empathy and friendship, and light learning value. Though some users have reported issues with the sound quality, we encountered no technical issues during testing.

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.
