Peekaboo – it’s a pig!This week, we have mostly been playing Peekaboo Barn! This app is produced by Night & Day Studios Inc, and the full version of it retails for EUR1.59. There’s also a Lite version, which you can download for free.
Peekaboo barn is a simple app – but Little Man loves it. A red barn appears on the screen, and it vibrates and makes noise to let you know that there’s something inside! When you touch the barn doors, they slide back to reveal the occupant.
The image onscreen zooms in to show the animal up close, and the animal name appears onscreen. The animal moos, or oinks, or whatever comes naturally, and a child’s voice says the animal name.
The Lite version of the app features just three animals, whereas the full version of the app features a complete range of animals, and includes a bedtime scene with the animals once you’ve said hello to all of them. It’s very cute, and highly entertaining for a toddler.
Although an argument could be made that this is an educational app because it teaches animal names, I think it’s more fun than educational for small children. The child’s voiceover sounds funny, and isn’t always clear. But Little Man laughs out loud whenever he hears it, so it’s a hit in our house!
