Foodie alert: Scoops has expanded the forecast from falling scoops of ice cream to hamburger patties. Now kids can stack burgers, too, and track their scores on a personal stats page. The graphics are pretty, starting with a background scene of Central Park. Reach the stars if you're really good at catching food.

Silly and fun!

This is a fun, addicting game in which you must catch ice cream falling from the sky into your cone! But you can't get fruits/veggies. It's silly but fun. This game is age-appropriate for kids, but watch out since you can post your high score online. Also, there's consumerism because you can buy a different-themed scoops game (instead of catching ice team, you catch other objects).
