A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

Kids can learn a few basic but important concepts. For example, they will identify colors, numbers, and letters; choose the biggest or smallest item from a group of items; and distinguish between left and right. Matching tasks also get kids using their memory and practicing sorting skills. 

Ease of Play

Gameplay is straightforward and uncomplicated -- simply listen to instructions and tap the screen.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

A large icon on the home page advertises additional apps from the same developer. Kids must tap and hold for two seconds to access a purchase page. The free version also includes occasional pushes to buy the full version and unlock all games.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Toddler Educational Learning Games-EduKitty Free covers six learning topics through simple, colorful games. Kids can match cards in the classic game of memory, identify colors and numbers, or practice distinguishing between left and right. An additional seven topics are available if parents purchase the full version. Though the app's description suggests that these are preschool games, the title is more accurate. Most of the content fits best with a young crowd, mostly in the toddler to very early preschool range. Unfortunately, the pushes to buy the full content make it less appropriate for toddlers, so parents of really little kids may want to spring for the full version. In both the free and the paid versions, parents can choose from three difficulty levels and turn individual game topics on or off in the settings menu. Visit the parents' section to turn the background music off. The app is available in 12 languages including Spanish, Russian, Japanese, and Arabic.

What's it about?

Little kids can practice up to seven basic learning themes with TODDLER EDUCATIONAL LEARNING GAMES-EDUKITTY FREE. The paid version adds six more games. Kids listen carefully to the instructions, then tap to, for example, match socks, select the biggest item, choose the egg on the left, or find the letter "a." Games generate randomly and endlessly, though after every three levels, there's a pause for kids to "stamp" a picture. Parents can customize play by choosing from three difficulty levels and 12 languages and choosing which games to include or leave out.

Is it any good?

This collection of kid-friendly activities has some nice features, but the developer's learning claims seem overblown as games are mostly uninspired and pushes to buy make it less OK for toddlers. Kids can play Toddler Educational Learning Games-EduKitty Free in their choice of 12 languages, which can be fun for multilingual families, non-English-speaking families, or families that want their kids to learn a foreign language. Three levels of difficulty and turning games on and off give parents some flexibility to make play right for their kids. However, the difference between the difficulty levels is simply how many "distractor" items there are for kids to choose from, and this ends up being a bit of a disappointment. Thank goodness parents can silence the background music because it can get quite grating and makes the play experience feel frenetic. Despite these positive features, the games themselves aren't particularly creative and don't get high marks for adding something special to kids' learning experience. Then there's the tricky matter of the title including the word "free," when in reality the app is not entirely free. Parents may feel misled when they discover that the free version simply offers limited access to a paid version plus numerous appeals to purchase the full version, which isn't an ideal model for kids.
