A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids engage in pretend play and let their imaginations take the lead. They can practice storytelling, role-playing, and will feel totally in charge as they explore and manipulate everything on the screen.
Ease of Play
It's easy to explore the fantasy world, but small objects are sometimes hard to grab and move.
Products & Purchases
The free download includes limited content and a large section of visibly locked content. The in-app purchase to unlock the additional content is parent-gated.
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
This pretend world has delightfully quaint graphics for sparking imagination, though play is limited to what the digital space allows. Kids who love furry creatures will appreciate the cutesy characters and their colorfully charming world. The multi-touch function is a nice way to encourage kids to play and pretend with friends or parents. How much kids get out of Wonder Woollies Play World will truly depend on how much it's able to inspire them to be creative or tell stories. The free version has limited content and can quickly feel like not enough -- especially with grayed out graphics with a big lock over them enticing kids to want more. Parents should make their policy about in-app purchases clear before starting to play, and in any case, be prepared for kids asking to unlock more content. The activities are pretty basic and don't add much; The focus here is really on open-ended pretend play. And the more you talk with your kid about what they're doing in the app, the more learning potential it has!
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.
