A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

Created for entertainment and not intended for learning. 

Ease of Play

Strong tutorial early on, but some things are never explained or clear.


Largely focused on buying bigger/better things. In-app purchases available without parent gate. Watching ads encouraged to speed up building or earn coins.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Loud House: Ultimate Treehouse is a Tiny Tower-style game based on the Nickelodeon show The Loud House. The focus is largely on buying new rooms and objects for the tree house, collecting money and other objects, and then selling things to make more money. Though it's meant for younger kids who watch the show, there are in-app purchases without a parent gate and regular opportunities to watch ads in exchange for in-game currency and speeding things along, which make it more appropriate for older kids. A tutorial will get kids started, but it doesn't explain everything. 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.

Barely even a “game”...

I love The Loud House and I love the idea for this “game”, you’re essentially building a gargantuan treehouse (every kid’s dream!) but despite the seemingly coo... Continue reading

Fun at first then boring

It is fun to build but you have to wait a lot and there isn't much to do while you are waiting.

What's it about?

LOUD HOUSE: ULTIMATE TREEHOUSE is all about building and buying. Kids join Lincoln Loud, his friend Clyde, and an ever-growing cast of characters as they build their dream tree house. Kids build rooms and then furnish the rooms with various items on demand of the in-game characters. Some furnishings provide goodies, such as batteries and comic books. These can then be sold to have enough money to buy more rooms and more items. Characters also have quests beyond building, such as calling a friend, making microwave popcorn, or reading a comic book. These actions also provide coins. 

Is it any good?

This is one of those cool, every-kid-dreams-of-this ideas, but between ads and purchases without a parent gate, it's just not kid-friendly. Who wouldn't want to build their dream tree house? In Loud House: Ultimate Treehouse, kids have the chance to practice their design skills, but there's not a lot of room for creativity. It's a matter of waiting until characters ask for something and then providing it. There is some control over where things are placed, but that's about it. In the meantime, kids will do a lot of grinding to earn the coins to pay for whatever demands their characters issue next. The other thing that's missing is the flavor of the TV show. The characters are there, but they are too busy plotting their next purchase to do anything meaningful. Some kids will enjoy playing with characters from a favorite TV show, but there simply isn't a lot to grab onto here, and plenty of opportunities to spend. 

Talk to your kids about ...
