A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn to identify a variety of fruits and vegetables and gain an understanding that food fuels their bodies. Kids can also develop some pre-reading skills as they participate in the story, and they're empowered as they help solve Yummiloo's problem. They'll identify and match colors, follow verbal instructions, and build their vocabularies. Yummiloo Rainbow Power offers a well-rounded learning experience for kids that's fun, health-focused, and educational.
Ease of Play
Parents can customize the controls so kids can either tap or drag the fruits into place. The controls are easy for preschoolers to maneuver, and instructions are given verbally. Games cannot be saved, and kids will need to complete the five color levels before finishing the game and seeing the festival come to life.
Products & Purchases
An image on the start page of the app links to other apps available from the developer, but it can only be accessed by following the written instructions to swipe two fingers to the left across the screen.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Yummiloo Rainbow Power is a lively, colorful game that exposes kids to a variety of fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables and encourages them to "eat the rainbow." Since there is no save function, parents may need to encourage kids (or help younger ones) to play through all five colors before quitting so they can see the party at the end when the foods they've collected power the rainbow wheel and start the carnival.
Is It Any Good?
Kids will enjoy the bright colors and catchy tunes, and parents will appreciate the positive message encouraging kids to eat wholesome foods in a variety of colors. The instructions and controls are easy for preschoolers to figure out, but the game is fun enough to appeal to young elementary aged kids as well. It'll take kids about 20 minutes to play through all five colors to see the carnival come to life, and there is no way to save an in-progress game.
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.
