not a kids game anymore

it now uses postings on twitter & face book to obtain pet rooms;kids may be encouraged to buy "stars" to accomplish a task; make sure your kids do not have easy access to buy things

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (6):

TAP PET HOTEL is actually quite fun, especially if you want a game to just check in on occasionally. It's not a game that you can play for hours. Unfortunately, the pressure to buy is far too high, and younger kids will be frustrated by the amount of time it takes for anything to be built. Kids will also be disappointed by the rooms they can't buy without spending extra money. If you have older kids who are a bit more patient, and who will want to check in on their hotel between texting friends, this may be a fun choice.

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.
