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

Educational Value

Kids can learn counting and problem solving. In several mini-games, kids are working toward a number goal -- hatching 100 chicks or getting 20 chicks through the maze -- so they'll be aware of the goal and count along as they work toward it. The puzzle game also develops spatial reasoning, and the maze game helps with problem solving. Kids will see that baby chicks hatch from eggs, too. Peppa Pig - Happy Mrs Chicken is hampered by imprecise controls and repetition, so kids may not stick with it for long.

Ease of Play

The app isn't very responsive to gestures, so kids may not feel like they're actually controlling the games. There's no direction for how to maneuver each mini-game, and it's not always intuitive.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language

No language issues, but the chicken makes a definite farting noise when it lays eggs.

Consumerism

A link to other apps by the developer is included in the parent's section behind a kid-lock screen.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Peppa Pig - Happy Mrs Chicken features Peppa Pig and friends from the British cartoon on Nick Jr. as well as Happy Mrs Chicken from the Nintendo DS game that Peppa Pig plays on the show. Kids play five simple mini-games and collect stickers that they can use to decorate scenes. The game is designed to be safe and appropriate for kids age 3 to 6 and contains no in-app purchases, ads, or collection of usage data. Kids who are big fans of Peppa Pig may enjoy the games, but the simple activities may not hold other kids' interest long enough to complete them.

What's it about?

PEPPA PIG - HAPPY MRS CHICKEN features the same voices and animation as in the popular kids' show plus five mini-games kids complete to earn stickers: a puzzle, a maze, a mud-puddle activity, an egg-hatching game, and a sorting game. Kids have a goal to hit in each game, such as hatching 100 eggs to get a sticker, which may take some time and focus. Kids can tap a door at the bottom right of the screen if they want to quit before they reach the goal. They can use the earned stickers to decorate scenes in their sticker books.

Is it any good?

The characters are cute and funny, and kids will get a kick out of the silliness of the games, especially jumping in mud puddles and laying eggs. The novelty wears off pretty quickly, though, as that's all there is to it. Kids may not be very willing to play long enough to hatch 100 eggs to earn a sticker or jump in dozens of mud puddles to earn one. The way the characters move doesn't seem totally responsive to the gestures, either, which is pretty frustrating and makes it feel like kids aren't really in control. Although kids may start with interest and excitement, especially if they're big fans of Peppa Pig, Peppa Pig - Happy Mrs Chicken isn't likely to keep their attention for long -- certainly not long enough to earn many stickers. Luckily, the main characters' stickers are included automatically, so kids can play around with the sticker scenes even if they don't win anything.
