What is it
This funny and creative app lets toddlers design and create some colorful and funny looking bugs, which can then be brought to life. To create their unique bug, kids tap a cocoon making it hatch — sprouting eyes and legs. Children can then have fun and put their own touch on their bug by putting wacky patterns and colours on their bug, choosing accessories and feeding their bugs and cleaning their mess.

What our experts think
A simple fun, creative app that pre-schoolers really enjoyed. It encourages the children to be creative and because each bug is quick and simple to create it keeps the kids attention.
The added features of cracking an egg to watch it hatch and feeding and cleaning the bug helps the children learn the concept of hatching and caring for something in a fun and playful story.
It would be even better if...
