My 4 year old loves this!

My 4 year old loves this app! Heck, even my 6 year old will play with it. They laugh hysterically when making the monsters move back and forth and when they dance with Elmo. I give it 4 stars because it could have offered a little more.

DRAGonvale I love That app? ,

I would love if I could build my own Sesame Street

You know, with all of the cast. Make sure it’s a free game. Also for the ability to befriend other players and see their very own Sesame Street.

Toddler son loves this!!

This app is so cute, easy to use, entertaining, and well-made. My son is 17 months old and his favorite iPad activity is pushing the button and laughing as it boots me back to the homepage of apps. This is the only app that holds his attention for a sustained amount of time. The monsters crack him up, he loves the music, and I find it cute as well. The only thing I would like to see are more options for eyes, noses, mouths, etc. The options that are there are cute but limited. Maybe there are additional choices in different seasons?
