iPad App Review - Oh, the Pets You Can Get!

~ Posted on Monday, December 17, 2012 at 11:07 AM ~

My 3.5 years old boy loves animals! Everytime we walked past a pet shop, he will stop us and dragged us in to have a look. Fishes, rabbits, dogs, guinea pigs, hamsters, cats, everything! So when I received an email pitch on this app, I immediately requested to review it. Without further ado, here goes my feedback...

Description from the product page:

"Playful puppies, purring kittens, and flying birds bring the pages to life as children learn about animal behavior and how to keep pets happy and healthy. Look for information cards from Thing 1 and Thing 2 which teach pet safety, and find out more about each animal by tapping on instant glossary words throughout the story.

* It is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects in each page on the screen and the words pop out to tell you what it is!

* I like the storyline where it teaches us how to care for animals and pets, in fact, there are some pages which I particularly enjoyed as I feel the tips given can be apply to our daily life as well.

* For example, at the picture below (top right), it says that we should not let any pets play with string as it can get tangled. I used this opportunity to remind my boy that not just animals, little children and us adults should not play with strings and ropes without practising cautions and safety.

* Another example is the picture above (bottom left) which mentioned that we need understanding and patience when our pets make mistakes. I feel this particularly rings the truth even for us as parents that we should be understanding and have patience with our own children especially when they make mistakes! I totally love this app!

* I also used the opportunity to educate my boy on how we should handle our pets and what type of foods they eat everyday. I also enjoyed the extra tips and facts about the animals as I find myself learning new things too!
