About The Very Hungry Caterpillar

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is an interactive pop-up app, featuring characters from the book. It consists of a number of games and puzzles, which can help young children practise counting, sorting, and memory skills. The app can also help them discover facts about caterpillars and other animals, and learn about healthy eating. The beautiful illustrations and reward badges will motivate children to keep on playing. The Very Hungry Caterpillar from StoryToys is available on Apple and Android for free with in-app purchases. 

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Review

My Very Hungry Caterpillar by Story Toys was thoroughly enjoyed by our little testers. They loved exploring the caterpillar’s world: watching him eat the fruit, sail on the pond, play with his toys and water the plants. Very Hungry Caterpillar encourages exploration and fine motor skills with this lovely app for pre-schoolers. There cannot be many parents of young children who have not encountered the long-time children’s favourite,

The Very Hungry Caterpillar book.  Its distinctive and wonderful artwork, its simple but educational story and its tactile design appeals to children in many ways.  What a great idea it was, then, to make an app with supporting activities that just couldn’t work in a book.

The app is clearly closely related to the book. The collage-like artwork remains along with the friendly tone. Its combination of this traditional artwork with the smoothly animated 3D book and its pages is a superb mix of the old and the new that will make parents remember their own childhood enjoyment of the book.

The app offers education and entertainment at the same time. Like the book, children can enjoy it alone or with a parent. Unlike the book, the app can even read to children if they choose. It is safe to say that parents and children will enjoy the app most when they explore it together. Parents can draw out their child’s thinking skills with questioning and guidance.

The activities are varied and easily accessible for young children. They combine fun interactions with learning. Whether they are helping the caterpillar to choose a healthy diet or identifying sea creatures, the app teaches children something then lets them play and use their new knowledge.

The app can be a risk-free purchase as a free version is available to download. If your child likes it, you can either pay for the full app or upgrade the free app using the in-app purchase options. Parents looking for a way to extend their children’s enjoyment of a favourite book or just looking for an activity that they can share should check out this app and extend the enjoyment of The Very Hungry Caterpillar to the next generation.
