Dr Panda’s Supermarket App
By Tribe Play
Age Recommendation 2-6 years.
The familiarity of this game will appeal to many children in it’s targeted audience. Most children have been shopping with mum or dad and will identify with many of the shopping experiences the game presents to them.
The greatest skill this app brings to children is the concept of sequencing of events, for example. You need to get a trolley before you shop. You need to tick everything off your shopping list before going to the counter. You need to pay before you can leave, and you need to put your shopping in the car before driving off. All these experience your child has when they really do go shopping with you.
Your child will also be exposed to skill such as sorting money and recyclables, early reading skills from picture in the form of a shopping list and puzzles just to name a few.
Not so sure about the idea of kids using a coffee machine even if it is the grown-up animal that drinks it and not the child character. I feel making a smoothie would of been better combining fruit, milk, ice-cream and honey. This is a minor hiccup on their part. Would love to see an update with it changed.
Still love the app, still highly recommend it. TribePlay, you guys just keep pumping out great apps that young kids will learn from and want to play.
