Is It Any Good?

Little ones who love trains will delight in being able to "drive" their own, but the lag time between stations may be a bit too long for the target age. Those who are familiar with Dr. Panda will recognize the same creativity tinged with a silly quirkiness that their other apps provide. Dr. Panda Train passengers include cows, dogs, cats, raccoons, etc., all dressed appropriately for their commute, and kids are bound to find them funny. Though the travel time between stations lets kids distribute all sorts of stuff to the passengers, it would also be fun to include some other activities, like repairing the train, or interacting with the landscape in some way. Overall, though, train-lovers and little kids who might get overwhelmed by lots of activity will likely love this one.

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.
