App review: Wild Kratts World Adventure

*Disclosure: I received a code to review this app with my kids. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.

We're big fans of the PBS kids' show- Wild Kratts. So when I heard about a new app called Wild Kratts World Adventure, I knew it would be a fun one to try out. Here's a bit about it, from a press release that I received:

Through 30 levels of game play, WILD KRATTS World Adventure helps build key skills and encourages science inquiry. With the app, children ages 4 to 8 can tilt and tap their way through games that help them learn how different animals live and adapt to their habitats.
Additional features include:
·         Over 60 stickers and “Wow facts”
·         Kids can take their own creature power “selfies”
·         An Orangutan creature power game that lets kids tilt their device back and forth to imitate the swing of the Orangutan.
·         A Woodpecker creature power game that lets kids imitate the strong beak of the woodpecker by tapping on trees to listen and find beetles.
·         A Dolphin creature power suit game that lets kids swim and jump with dolphins as they tilt their device to clean up trash in the ocean.

My kids spent quite a while this afternoon playing this app on my iPod.  Even though neither of them could read, they were able to easily figure out how to play the games. I finally pried the iPod away from them and had some time to play myself, and I agree, the games are fun! And educational too!
