Ratings and Reviews
Doesn't live up to other DuckDuck Moose apps
My 2.5 year old daughter really enjoys this app. And the music is pretty good. However, I have some concerns. The tow scene involves choosing an object to put in the road. Granted, the objects are funny, a stiletto shoe, an axe, an ice cream cone, but still, its not an ideal thing to suggest. The traffic scene does almost nothing but let cars bang into each other. Also not what we want to teach. But life lessons aside, this app misses so many opportunities. Two other duck duck moose apps - itsy bitsy spider and fish school are amazing in that everything you touch does something surprising or delightful. When I tried to apply this premise to Trucks, more often than not, nothing happened. And when something did happen, it was just "meh." in the dump truck scene there are Lego bricks and blue beans lying around to no purpose. A squirrel runs out for the red beans, but the blue ones are just scenery. To sum up, this app is pretty ok, there are 5 scenes to choose from and the cars are cool and the repetition appeals to the toddler set. So if you aren't expecting the same level of awesomeness that fish school or itsy bitsy spider has, you won't be disappointed.
Good for toddlers
This game is simple enough my 2 year old is able to play without frustration. No extra levels just a repetitive play with simple commands and 1 option when touching an item to make is move.
Fun app...for now
I bought this app for my 2- yr old a couple of days ago since he likes bulldozers. He loves the games and constantly asks to play....for now. I can see that he will eventually get bored with it since he already knows how to play each game and there is not much to it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
