Really Love this App

We have 2 sets of twins, the fist set are 5 yrs old and the second are 3 yrs old. So as you can imagine, with everyone in the house, bored out of their minds there’s bound to be some friction between them sometimes! Well this app helps them focus on other fun activities and forget/help manage that friction! They love doing the games together. This is a lifesaver and a sanity-saver during the stay at home order going on.
