Ratings and Reviews
There are 10 games but the app rotates through all 10 instead of giving you a menu so you can choose which one you want to play. An adult can change which games are in the rotation so you can exclude games that are too easy, too hard or not interesting for your child. Each game is very, very short with no levels. If you do the rotation more than once you do get different bugs to look at, different words to spell, different numbers of fireflies to catch, etc. It would be much better if a child could choose one game and stick with it for several repeats.
Grandma and Grandpa Really Are Educational
We have several of the Grandma and Grandpa apps. This one is probably my favorite. I’m a developmental psychologist and appreciate that these apps really are educational (some other apps claim to be but aren’t). My favorite feature is that as a parent I can go into the settings and turn OFF some of the games. I like this because I can turn something off that I know is still a little too advanced (read: frustrating) for my child and also I can go back in and add things later as my child grows so the app stays fresh.
In general, I like this app. It's pretty simple, but appropriate for a four or maybe five yr. old. The only strange thing to me was the name. I thought it would be about grandma taking care of or appreciating bugs. This app has you build a web to trap bugs and putting fireflies in a jar. I wasn't feeling the love. Maybe it should be called something different like, "Grandma messes with bugs".
