✌🏻️👌🏻👌🏻😩 ,


This app functions beautifully. My toddler loves it. HOWEVER!!! ,there is an interaction with our dear ENEMY Sammy the Squirrel. This fluffy demon says “Look! I throw my acorn up in the air like a ball! Can you do that?” Then proceeds to throw his acorn like a mad man!!!1!! Now. I ask you fellow parents. What is your small child left to throw but your phone!!! It is likely the only item in their hands!!!! Now i have an angry little boy who’s mind has been polluted by a squirrely heathen. He will not stop throwing the phone!! He threw it at me!! At his grammy!! AT THE CAT!!! What is a mother left to do??????!!?

(This review is mostly a joke however my son seriously is throwing my phone a lot and i feel that perhaps our dear Sammy is the culprit.)

Sound has disappeared :(

I’ve had this app on my iPhone for a couple of years, first for my now 5 year-old and now for my 18 month-old.

But the sound has stopped working. I have the app on my iPhone X, my old iPhone 6, and an iPad. The sound has stopped on all the devices.

This was/is my daughters favorite app. I can see reviews from over a year ago that this has been an ongoing problem, and the developer responding that they were working on an update. Well, there hasn’t been an update in almost 2 years.

Please develop an update to fix the sound! My daughter misses calling all her friends from the baby channel.

Developer Response ,

Hey, Can you please check and confirm if the physical MUTE switch isn't toggled ON for your device? This usually occurs on iOS devices. If the problem still happening, we strongly advise you to contact

Wish the sound worked!!!

We loved the app and all the characters until the sound stopped working as other users have stated. I’ve tried uninstalling, rebooting, and fluctuating the volume from the lowest to highest setting to no avail. It does work fine on my iPhone 8 Plus, but is really needed for my toddlers personal iPad which is on IOS 10.3.3. I would definitely give this app 5 stars otherwise. I have the same problem with the second version of the app as well 😔.
