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

Educational Value

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.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

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.

What 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.

What's it about?

A short movie introduces kids to the premise of YUMMILOO RAINBOW POWER. In a colorful world in a bit of grass, Rooty lives with other characters, but their carnival is not moving because it needs to be powered by the rainbow machine. It's empty and needs foods from all the colors of the rainbow to make it run. Kids are empowered to choose the color on the rainbow machine and then feed the characters foods of that particular color that they gather straight from the garden. Rooty has occasional "snack attacks" and needs to be fed lots of fruits and vegetables. Kids gather foods from five color groups (red; green; yellow and orange; blue and purple; brown and white) to power the rainbow and make the carnival come to life.

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.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Pick out some of the fruits and vegetables that may be new to your kid (like jicama or radicchio) together at the market and try them.

  • Talk about other food choices in a balanced diet -- like lean proteins and whole grains.
