What is it
Tiny Firefighters – Police and Firefighters Activity Book is an app that lets children explore a world of firefighters and policemen. It is simple to use and well animated. Players just tap and watch the scenes coming to life.
In the fire department there are stories and adventures involving fighting fires; children will be able to save, rescue and help people and animals. They will help firefighters to put out the blaze; get the cow out of the pond using the crane truck; save the cat from a tree and help the firefighters clear up after the storm.
In the police department children need to catch a pickpocket and a burglar; retrieve the stolen jewels from a magpie; escort a superstar in their limousine and fly against the witch and Superman in your Police helicopter!
There are lots of adventures to engage children and, with the level of humour and surprise, make them smile!

What our experts think
Tiny Firefighters is a delightful app from wonderkind. The animations are engaging and fun and the app had our little testers giggling and wanting to interact!
We were really impressed by the level of detail in the interactive scenes; there was lots for children to see and do. Whilst playing, children tended to naturally verbalise their actions (this level of story telling is a good skill.)
The way you could reveal the ‘What’s Up?’ section was good as it showed players where the interactions were.
It would be even better if...
We really liked this app and it’s hard to find anything to improve it! We would like to have had more to explore – maybe a swipe across function so that the scene filled two screens instead of one.
