Watch and Find - VeggieTales Games and Video Clips - A Fingerprint Network App
For those of you who have not heard of Veggie Tales from television, the veggie gang are a collection of adorable anthropomorphic vegetables who sing very amusing silly songs, which are guaranteed to entertain young children- but also those young at heart. The app receives a 5 Star EAS Certification and EAS Recommended status.
“Silly Songs” is a find and seek game for children of ages 6 and below, even if your child is not at the level of being able to find and seek, they will still enjoy listening to the songs and watching the colourful characters progress through their story.
Upon first opening of the app, the user is asked to set their profile picture and to generate and choose an amusing nickname (ours was “Velvetfajita2”) or to enter their name manually. When in parent mode, which is distinguished by having to enter a numerical pass, parents can create accounts for each member of their family to use individually and view their children’s progress through the app. The container app then recommends other apps by the same developer so that the parent is able to choose and assign the apps that would benefit each member of their family. Another aspect of the app is a “Facebook style” wall on which users can post restricted default messages and emoticons to each other as well as their latest test results and achievements. The app does post recommended apps on the child’s wall too however, he/she would need to enter a numerical pass to access.
Once “play” mode the titles for each song are displayed with image illustrations on a carousel. It took a while for us to figure out that there where more than 3 titles so perhaps the app could benefit from a visual clue such as an arrow to indicate that there is actually an extensive amount of content on this app. Initially it may be hard for children to understand the visual clues that indicate what it is that they they need to do. However, when the app is paused, the user can find an explanation menu which provides a competent explanation. Additionally, parents will be able to explain and support what needs doing. We think that this is an excellent progression tool to keep children’s minds attentive.
“Silly Songs” was a fantastically entertaining app which received a lot of laughs from both the children and adults using the app. The songs will keep the whole family engaged and children will delight in finding the objects as the songs progress. It is very engaging and fun to user in order to improve memory, recognition and motor-skills. For these reasons we have given the app our EAS 5 Star recommended status.
