This app adds life to talk and play!

As the Director of a mobile family engagement non-profit, I have been using and recommending Dr PetPlay to families for years. It is awesome! The app facilitates children to role play real vets by observing and documenting the treatment of their pretend pets! The app makes it simple and necessary for users to add words to their play. It is an excellent play prompt to help kids manipulate graphs, draw, write and speak while they play. What an amazing brain boost, and every child or adult I have seen use the app is completely interested. What a way to encourage math and science talk while exploring the role of a real scientist or health hero!

Fun…but could use some changes

Me and my brother have a lot of fun using this app with our stuff animals. We like to give them check ups and diagnose them with things. It is truly very fun. But the main reason why I am giving this app a three star review is because of the options. For the type of animal the options are very limited. Me and my brother like playing with other kinds of animals than just the 8 options. And we have say the otter is a bunny or the turtle is an elephant. It is very annoying and I feel like this app would be way more convenient if we had more options or if we could create more options. But other than that, this app is fun for kids like me who likes to play with there stuff animals. Please take my idea into consideration. And then that is my review so by.

Awesome game 🤩🤩🤩👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

I may be older but I’m still a kid and I think this game is for any ages. Me myself has a ton of stuffed animals so I can play this all the time. I want to be a vet so this is really cool. I would suggest that there are more types of animals maybe lizards dragons fish alpaca. I would also like some more things to do with the animals idk what but some more things. Also I have a little bug when I try to pick a different month ( for the age ) for example when it’s January and I want to pick June I’ll go to June but it will bring me right back to January. THANKS KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK 🦔🐅🐩🐈🐑🦒🐳🦖🦎🦐🦀

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the great feedback. We'll look into the date issue and also what kind of animals to add next. Stay tuned.
