What is it
An open play world including 4 beautifully hand illustrated & highly interactive shops complete with the street right up to your front door. Children can move the characters around and interact with virtually everything from filling their trolley at the supermarket, making a smoothie at the grocer’s, making themselves an ice cream or trying on outfits at the clothes shop. They can even get cash from the cash machine and ride in the toy car.

What our experts think
We love this app! It provides literally hours of entertainment whilst helping children to understand the world around them and to use their imagination. The graphics and interactive details are incredible – your child will find a new feature every time they play. You can use this app to explore and discuss so many concepts together or leave them to play freely in their own little world.
It would be even better if...
It was easier to get the children to stop playing!
We’d love the tiles to allow prices and payments encourage maths skills and concepts of money too.
