A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

The app is easy to use and the mini-games are relatively simple. They start on an easy level and progressively get more difficult as you play. The flaw is that all of the directions are written and never read out loud, so children must be confident readers to play or have an adult there to help.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

There is a link from the main menu to a list of other apps by the publisher and, from there, a link to their website.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that the Littlest Pet Shop app is similar to the full video games of the same name. Kids receive three pets - a dog, a rabbit, and a horse - that they can easily switch between. They are encouraged to feed, pet, dress, and play with their animals. The app has three mini-games: a clothing memory game, a frisbee toss, and a shape tracing game. Kids can also unlock new accessories for their pets. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids') information is collected, used, and shared and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.

Is it any good?

LITTLEST PET SHOP is a playful app that will have special appeal for young girls who like to take care of virtual pets. The mini-games aren't anything extraordinary, but they're likely to entertain the target audience long enough to get some value from the app. If you have played other Littlest Pet Shop games, you'll find that this app stays true to the quality and game-style you've come to expect. It's a high quality app that does what it's supposed to and it's pretty cute along the way.
