What is it

Dr Panda Firefighters is an app where children can play at being firefighters!  They can drive a fire engine, break down doors and put out flames in their job!

Children work with Dr. Panda and his firefighting team to rescue his trapped friends from a burning building.  There are over 30 rooms to explore.

The app starts off in the fire station; when the children press the bell the characters race off to get their firefighting clothes on.  They can choose the direction they want to go, steer the wheel and watch the animals react to how they drive.

Children learn about the role of a firefighter and teamwork; there are no time-limits or definite game objectives, the app is all about free play!

What our experts think

Dr Panda Firefighters is a lovely free play app with delightful animations. It is appeals to children through its real life scenarios – children love driving the fire engine and saving the cute animal characters from the burning building.  There is lots to see and do and our testers enjoyed playing the app numerous times.

Drivng the fire engine was great and something that our testers particularly enjoyed; they also really liked putting out the fires with the hoses.  There were lots of giggles and exclamations as the children watched the animals expressions and the effects of their actions.

We love the way in which the app teaches children about people who help in a fun ands engaging way.  The game play is simple and intuitive and the developers have really thought about what appeals to young children.

It would be even better if...

Some simple instructions (just an arrow would have done) to show children how to get to the next room would have been useful – some of our testers missed this and kept returning to the homepage.
