What our experts think
Our experts absolutely love this app. The children had such a fabulous time playing it and it managed to do a brilliant job of developing numeracy, language, shape recognition and a range of other skills. The focus on healthy fruits to build on children’s early Literacy and Numeracy Skills is such a great concept.
The main character was engaging for young children and the activities were simple and easy to achieve.
Few apps receive such a high rating from our critical team of reviewers so this one really is something special.
