What our experts think
Dr Panda’s farm is a wonderful app for teaching children how farms work, using the imaginative play that children love. Our testers thoroughly enjoyed working on each stage of production such as picking the fruit and then getting the characters to stamp on it to make jam. This is a great way for children to learn where different food products come from and it supports their understanding of the world. Children also liked filling their customer’s food orders and this was a great way to get them to practise counting and quantities within a context.
It would be even better if...
There aren’t any instructions or prompts so an adult might need to help the child when they first start playing but we found that our testers got the hang of it quite quickly.
