The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can get a very basic understanding of planting and reaping crops and caring for farm animals. But without any description of the trucks or what's happening, most of the education will fall on the closest adults. 

Ease of Play

With no clear directions and only some arrows to guide the way, young kids may not understand what to do or why. Controlling the trucks requires dragging them around, and they occasionally get stuck on buildings or other objects.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Little Farmers - Tractors and Harvesters for Kids is a sandbox-style simulation game for kids who enjoy farming and/or farm equipment. The game never labels the trucks, so kids who aren't familiar with farming vehicles may need help understanding what's going on. An icon for more apps will lead kids to a simple addition problem. If they can solve it, they'll be able to access other apps by the same developer. Read the app's privacy policy to find out about the information collected and shared.

What's it about?

LITTLE FARMERS - TRACTORS AND HARVESTERS FOR KIDS is a simulation game for young kids. There are two play areas with seven trucks between them. One leads to a set of fields where kids can plant crops, harvest them, and store them in a silo. The other has farm animals that kids care for by delivering water and food via truck. For completing tasks, kids earn stickers. They also can click on silly extra features such as a Loch Ness monster-style water creature in the pond. 

Is it any good?

Kids who enjoy trucks will enjoy tending to their farms, but there isn't much depth to the overall experience. At first it's fun to drive around and grow crops and deliver feed, but then there's nothing else to do. The trucks aren't labeled, so kids won't learn what they are without parental help (and possibly research). Little Farmers - Tractors and Harvesters can serve as a starting point for talking about where food comes from, but without more activities, it won't add too much to kids' understanding. Truck-obsessed kids are the best audience for this app, while other kids may quickly tire of it.
