A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn cause and effect and basic musicality as they explore and discover the sounds each animal makes and how those sounds come together to make music. Recording and sharing their music gives them an authentic audience for their creation, inspiring them to create more.
Ease of Play
No wrong way to play. Toddler- and preschool-friendly tapping and exploring.
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
Nature scenes and cute animals make lovely, soothing music that won't push kids into sensory overload. The Puffin Rock Music! interface is totally toddler-friendly with easy drag-and-drop controls, and the characters move and dance when touched. The graphics are gorgeous, though it can take a bit long to load the app and save the songs, which may test your preschooler's attention span. The subdued sounds, reminiscent of nature, aren't as jarring as some kids' music-making apps, so sensitive kids may prefer this.
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.
