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

Educational Value

While kids can talk about different vehicles and consider how you might use vehicles in different environments, none of this is explicit. And the activities aren't always realistic, so it's really more about fun and imagination. 

Ease of Play

Some delayed prompting within the play areas, but kids will have little trouble figuring out what to do.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

Android version of the app has locked content and in-app purchases. Link to the publisher from the splash screen (prior to the main menu).

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Little Tiger: Fire Truck, Submarine, Spaceship is a toddler-friendly environment that allows kids to pair up two cuddly characters for a truck ride, water journey, or space flight. There are no words or complex gestures, and the prompts are slightly delayed, giving kids only a few minutes to poke around without help. Most kids who are familiar with how apps work will immediately start tapping and figure things out. The iOS version of the app has no advertising or in-app purchases other than a link to the publisher's other apps from the splash page, which is blocked by a parent gate involving addition problems. The Android version, which starts free, requires paying for two out of the three sections of the app, costing buyers twice as much as the iOS version. Read the app's privacy policy to find out about the information collected and shared.

What's it about?

LITTLE TIGER: FIRE TRUCK, SUBMARINE, SPACESHIP introduces kids to different vehicles and shows some examples of how they're used. Kids first choose two of the four animal characters (tiger, elephant, panda, and unicorn) and then select the fire truck, submarine, or spaceship. The two animal friends then set off on an adventure that kids help control. As the animals drive along, kids can tap on items to help shape the adventure. If they are in the fire truck, they might choose the cat to save from a tree, flames to put out a fire, or a tree to clear the road, or they might loop-de-loop for a wild ride. The submarine journey has water skis, a rowboat, a fishing pole, a submarine, and a ramp to jump over. The space adventure is a bit different in that the spaceship doesn't move on the ground. But kids can pick up differently shaped space rocks, invite an astronaut friend to join the trip, or blast off into space.  

Is it any good?

This simple vehicle experience is free of distractions, making it just right for toddlers who are learning how apps work. Little Tiger: Fire Truck, Submarine, Spaceship isn't a terribly in-depth or lengthy app which makes it appropriate for toddlers who are easily entertained but also easily overwhelmed. They can put out fires and save kittens and search for treasure without a lot of difficult controls. Or maybe they want to launch into space over and over with different animal friends each time. Though it's not going to teach them to read, it's a fun, age-appropriate romp with all the features kids love.
