A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find 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.
Products & Purchases
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.

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.
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.
