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

Ease of Play

Tapping the screen brings out woodland animals, with the animation on screen guiding kids on when to tap. There is no way to quickly tap through the animals, however; there is a delay before the next animal will peek out. The options screen also contains instructions on interacting with the app, as well as suggested tips for making the most of playing with the app with your kids. Play mode can be set to one time through, or looped for continuous play.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

Two taps deep from the main screen is a listing of the publisher's other apps, with links to them in the iTunes App Store.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Peekaboo Forest is an educational visit to the woodlands for preschoolers. Kids can tap the screen, visiting the animals in four different seasons' worth of scenes. As each animal is uncovered, the name of the animal shows on the screen, and a changeable voice speaks the name of the animal. The current options for the voice are a child speaking English, an adult speaking English, and an adult speaking Spanish. The colors of the artwork are fairly muted, and not as bright and colorful as apps for kids are usually.

Is it any good?

PEEKABOO FOREST is filled with beautiful, watercolor-like images of a visit to the forest. Kids easily tap to visit animals and change the scene, but the game is short, with only four scenes, and there is very little for kids to do on each one.
