Go, Diego, Go! Musical Missions
A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Go, Diego, Go - Musical Missions stars 8-year-old Diego Marquez (cousin of Dora from Dora the Explorer) and his pal Baby Jaguar in a similar setting to that of the television show. Kids must help Diego play soft music to lure shy animals out of their hiding places by watching the colored holes of a flute light up and then tapping to play them back in the same order.
Is it any good?
The familiar characters and setting of GO, DIEGO, GO - MUSICAL MISSIONS should appeal to Diego's devoted preschool fans, but anyone older than that will find the app too simplistic. If kids are able to tap back a few bars of well-known songs like "Itsy Bitsy Spider" then the animal comes out and dances as the entire song plays. The notes are shown in the correct place on the musical staff but not in the correct rhythm, so it's basically Simon Says with melodies and a positive animal rescue theme.
