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

Educational Value

Kids can learn about a variety of foods putting together lunches for the Yo Gabba Gabba crew. They'll learn the foods included in different meals -- such as seaweed, rice, veggies, and fish in sushi -- as well as the names and appearances of individual foods, such as mushrooms, tomatoes, and avocados. They'll even learn some basic manners, including how to use different utensils, cleaning up when they're finished, and saying, "Excuse me," after accidentally burping while eating. Yo Gabba Gabba! Party in My Tummy is a fun song to encourage kids to eat well, and the app is a great way to reinforce good eating habits.

Ease of Play

Dragging and dropping the food into place is mostly intuitive, but, since there are no verbal instructions, kids may need some direction from parents on where and what to drag into place. Feeding the robot, Plex, takes some trial and error -- kids have to figure out that the food goes directly into the stomach-box and not into his robot mouth.

What's it about?

YO GABBA GABBA! PARTY IN MY TUMMY takes kids to a lunchtime party. Kids choose a character and help it prepare lunch by dragging and dropping the components into place. They'll serve up a variety of foods and then match each food to its outline, hearing the name again -- and hearing the chorus, "There's a party in my Tummy. So yummy. So yummy!" After they've fed each character, kids "Clean it Up" by putting the food and trash into the trash can. The app includes the song and video for "Party in My Tummy" as well as coloring pages.

Is it any good?

Yo Gabba Gabba! Party in My Tummy offers up quite a variety. There's a variety of activities -- creating meals, feeding the meals to the characters, matching foods, learning the names of the foods, cleaning up the trash, coloring pages, and watching a full music video -- as well as a variety of foods -- lettuce, avocado, mushrooms, seaweed, fish, yogurt, fruit, pasta, and more. There's even variety in the eating utensils -- fingers, forks, spoons, and chopsticks. It's all toddler-friendly, with simple drag-and-drop interaction.

It would be nice if the trash-pick-up mini-game included more eco-responsible disposal, such as a recycling bin and a compost bin, instead of everything going into the same garbage can. Parents could add that as personal interaction while kids play, asking where they'd put the banana peel, for example. Kids will enjoy singing along with the fun characters, and parents will appreciate the healthy lunch ideas. And the songs can make great tools to motivate kids to try a new food or to clean up.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Try some of the meals included for lunch.

  • Have a taste test of any unfamiliar foods or combinations.

  • If your kids haven't used chopsticks, give them a lesson or pick up a training pair at a local Chinese restaurant.
