Care for your very own Very Hungry Caterpillar!

Eric Carle’s much-loved character, The Very Hungry Caterpillar™, has won the hearts of millions of children around the world for more than 45 years. Now, for the first time, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is brought to life in a stunning 3D interactive app.

My Very Hungry Caterpillar will captivate you as he crawls across the screen! Have fun playing together, help him explore, pick him up, or take a peek into his colorful toy box.

You'll soon fall in love with your own Very Hungry Caterpillar as you enjoy a range of fun activities together. Hatch him from an egg, drag tasty fruits from a nearby tree, then watch as he eats them! And when My Very Hungry Caterpillar gets sleepy, just tuck him into his bed.

Each time you wake him up, it’s time for an exciting new adventure: push him on a swing, sail on a pond with bobbing Rubber Ducks, and grow flowers and fruit in a magical 3D garden.

The more you play, the more surprises you'll find including new activities, new fruit, and new toys unlocked over time. Chase a bouncing ball, pop floating bubbles and watch out for the wind-up Grouchy Ladybug!

Day by day, My Very Hungry Caterpillar grows bigger and bigger, until he changes into a beautiful butterfly. Then a new egg is laid and the adventure begins again.

It's a world of beauty and color you'll return to again and again.

Also includes a FREE sticker pack for iMessage with magical stickers from the world of Eric Carle.

Wonderful app

The graphics throughout this app are phenomenal. The gentle music option and available choices of objects and activities provide numerous options while using the app. Having worked with a wide range of children with varying challenges and ability levels, it can be very difficult to find a truly interactive app that includes shared learning and communication between the humans involved. I have used this app often for both teaching and getting little ones to communicate on many different levels. It is motivating without being frantically over-stimulating like so many other electronic options. It was also priced very reasonably. Thumbs up for a job impressively well done.

It's nice!

So, I've played this game with my 1 year old brother and I love it, but he loves it even more! This caterpillar is adorable, how you feed it and everything. I like how you unlock them each day, but I've been playing this for the past 2 days and he hasn't turned into a butterfly!

Now still, this game is very cute and adorable! It deserves 5 stars from me, but I wish I could give 10 stars! My brother and I want to see him as a butterfly, so we always play the game, and he even says "but fly". But it's okay, we both still love this game! He probably loves it more than me!

Thanks for making this app! 🤗
