iPad App Review - When I Grow Up

~ Posted on Thursday, April 18, 2013 at 9:16 AM ~

We are a big fan of Little Critters' story apps! Although I was initially apprehensive with this app since it is featuring Little Critter's sister instead (I prefer apps with gender related to my kiddos, in this case, my 4 years old boy is reading/watching this story app, so I prefer to have Little Critter as the main character so my boy could relate himself to the storyline) but anyway, I guess this app is useful as it gives an idea to my boy that we can have dreams and goals no matter how young or old we are. Without further ado, here goes my feedback...

* 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 tells how Little Critter's sister imagine herself would be doing in future, a great ballerina, a courageous fire chief, a world-famous doctor, a winning race car driver and more! 

* I used the opportunity in this storyapp to educate my boy that he can choose to be whatever he wants to be, to follow his passion and his heart in whatever makes him happy.

Although I want to keep the kids' time on technology to a minimum, Mercer Mayer has some great apps.  This one sounds great!


I also enjoyed little critters growing up, however, with two girls the sister works, but I can see it not being that great for little boys. Although, I think the idea is great and I am always looking for neat fun activities for my girls and I to work on together - thanks for the review.


It's always nice to find safe internet things for young kids to do.
