The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Wacky Safari is about entertainment more than learning, and delivers a heap of silly animal-themed gags with (perhaps intentionally) low-fi production values. Modes include the Wacky Phone (where kids can make "phone calls" to different animals and hear silly messages), animal-themed jokes, mix and match puzzles, and the "paw jam" (touch different parts of a paw to hear animal sounds).

Is it any good?
WACKY SAFARI certainly makes no lofty claims about boosting kids' vocabularies or honing their math skills. The app's five mini-games are loud, silly, tacky, and likely to amuse toddlers to no end while driving the grown-ups in the room crazy. Example: When kids call up the lion cub in Wacky Phone they're treated to a "voice mail" saying that he's gotten into his mom's make-up with a picture of the cub sporting colored streaks all over its face. From over-the-top voice-overs and garish graphics to strident music (that can be easily toggled on and off, thankfully), Wacky Safari certainly lives up to its name. A free ad-supported version of the app is also available.
