A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kid can learn Spanish vocabulary such as colors, foods, and names of objects. The lovable animal characters reinforce values such as responsibility, kindness, and good manners through scenarios played out in the videos. Each video ends with a popular corresponding Latin American "refran" or sayings by grandma. It's a great way for preschoolers to learn a bit more than Spanish language since it also gives a taste of Latin American culture.

Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
Preschoolers will find it fun to interact with lovable animal characters as they practice Spanish and are immersed in Latin American culture, but it may have a short shelf life. For the most part, the intuitive design and simple controls make it easy for little ones to use. Kids may initially need a bit of guidance scrolling through to navigate the home screen, clicking on icons and arrows to find their way to a section and then back to the home screen. Kids get minimal support as they play, so when playing a game they'll have to keep trying if they don't initially get it right. However, the nonverbal cues, such as the characters' reaction to incorrect choices in some of games, will quickly break through the language barrier to help kids understand what they need to do to move on and master the game. While the 11 sections are fun, they're also pretty simple, so their appeal may be short-lived once kids have mastered them. Having even more nonverbal cues, praise for correct answers, and simpler ways to navigate between activities would enhance the experience.
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.
