Challenging games unlock creature facts and cool activities.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn facts about animals, science, and geography. After they use their fine motor skills and problem-solving to work through each mini-game, kids will unlock facts about the three featured animals. They'll make connections to other animals and prior knowledge, developing reading skills and use logic to make connections about how each animal relates to its habitat. Kids will see where each animals lives on the map, adding some geography into the learning mix. With Wild Kratts World Adventure, kids will get excited about animals and about learning.
Ease of Play
Maneuvering the dolphin and gorilla through their adventures is quite tricky and requires coordination that little ones may not have mastered yet.
Violence & Scariness
If the orangutan doesn't swing fast enough, Hugo, a bigger orangutan will grab you him out of the tree. It's not scary or graphic, though.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Wild Kratts World Adventure features the Kratt brothers and other characters from the hit PBS Kids show Wild Kratts. The play gestures incorporate tilting and tapping the device, sometimes coordinating both moves at once, making it a challenge even for older kids. Add to that challenge avoiding other wild creatures and obstacles, like a bigger orangutan or stinging coral, and the games get pretty difficult, making winning even more rewarding. Kids must complete a few levels to unlock different activities and facts about the creatures. The facts are brief and written in kid-friendly style. Kids can tap the sound icon to have facts read aloud.

What’s It About?
Kids choose from three different creatures and see on the map where each lives. A Kratt brother dons the creature power suit for each game. In Woodpecker Drill Down, players must find their beetle-dinner before the other woodpecker does. In Dolphin Trash Dash, they collect trash from the ocean, and in Orangutan Swing, they swing through the jungle collecting food. Each game gets more challenging as kids advance through 10 levels. They'll unlock the sticker book and creature selfies activities and facts about the creatures as they play.
Is It Any Good?
WILD KRATTS WORLD ADVENTURE includes quite a bit of content for the price. The three mini-games each include 10 levels that are truly challenging enough to take quite a while to master. How well kids perform on those levels, though, has nothing to do with what they have learned about the animals and more about how well they can maneuver the device (which can get frustrating because it is hard to coordinate the moves). Kids will be motivated to stick with it because the more levels they unlock, the more features they get, like unlocking the creature selfies feature and facts about the creatures. The facts are classic Wild Kratts -- brief, high interest, and delivered right at kids' level. Lining the device up just right to get a good creature selfie is tricky, too, making for some disappointing pictures. Still, there's a lot to do and a lot to learn with Wild Kratts World Adventure.
