A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

Kids can learn to develop their fine motor skills, sense of rhythm, and overall musicality as they tap up to three symbols in time to the music, responding to visual and audio cues from songs that play in the background. Tap Tap Muppets is no substitute for learning a real musical instrument, but it does offer kids a cheap and fun way to play along to some favorite tunes.

Ease of Play

There's no obvious tutorial, but players who are already familiar with rhythm action games should be able to jump right in. There are four levels of difficulty to accommodate novice to advanced levels of musicality and reflexes.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

The app is a tie-in to Disney's The Muppets! movie, and the overall Muppets franchise. Players can share the app with friends via Twitter, Facebook, and email. A rotating banner ad for various Disney products appears along the bottom of the main menu, and there's also a link there to download more Disney games from the app store.

Really fun! The songs are great! Love the muppets!! :)

What's it about?

The rhythm action gameplay of Tap Tap Muppets is similar to other Tap Tap games where players must tap up to three symbols at a time as they scroll down from the bottom of the screen in time to the music. Players can adjust the difficulty to account for different skill levels.

Is it any good?

TAP TAP MUPPETS is a fun, lively, and challenging music app with tons of extra goodies for Muppets fans, including character bios and more than a dozen videos to watch. The presentation is very slick, too. Overall, a great choice for fans of the Muppets and music games.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Let younger kids play along to recorded music by banging pots and pans or other makeshift instruments.

  • When listening to music, have kids tap to the rhythm and identify patterns when possible. Challenge them to tap the rhythm even after the song stops playing.
