creative entertainment

This was a great way to keep my child entertained while waiting for their sibling’s after-school classes to end. It did help to be watchful to avoid clicking out of the app and into ads.

Some Issues--But Overall, Pretty Good

It is OK--I have it, but me myself I don't think it is the best you could possibly get. You can make funny faces on people, and put stamps on photos--I think it is educational because you can teach kids a bit about the color spectrum, ans so on. But I do think language COULD be an issue, I'm not saying it is--kids can draw or write inappropriate words on photos, and they don't have a moderating system to minimize it. Same with drinking and smoking--kids could take photos of something like a cigarette and draw on it, or something like that. Anyway, anyone reading this I think gets it, so have a nice day! It is worth downloading, but be careful.
