Awesome App!

I love this app! My little boys wanted to play the memory game over and over. I finally had to pry the phone from their hands in order to answer a call. Great story about managing emotions and cute game!

Super cute!

I love the story! My daughter is three and is at this very age where feelings and emotions are too much some times. I like how calming and soothing Maddie's voice is. The activities are cute. Looking forward to seeing more activities added on to the app.

If you have a daughter! You must have this App. It is really well made and thought out. The kids love the interactiveness of the story and line and the fun movement of images.
