Teacher Tilly’s Petting Farm offers a nice approach to teaching children words and vocabulary through an interactive learning app. The Petting farm theme is sure to please the little ones. This app is a story app and educational app rolled into one. The concept uses four petting farm scenes to teach children the vocabulary of animals and objects found throughout the farm. The animals and objects throughout the various scenes are all interactive and offer nice animated effects and audio when touched.
The interactivity of the app is quite simple and easy which is appropriate for the target age group. We tested this app with a three and a half year old toddler and this seemed to be an ideal age for this app. Not too easy and not too difficult either. The main menu has four scene choices. Once a scene is chosen, there are two modes of play available. One is a selection mode which teaches children the vocabulary words and the second is a series of questions which the child has to listen to and answer. The questions are based off of the first vocabulary building exercise.
Another nice feature is the menu access. In order to access the main menu or change playing modes, you need to slide a tractor icon to unlock the access. This is nice if you don’t want your child to wander away from the app by pressing buttons. It keeps the child’s attention on the screen and doesn’t allow them to be distracted with other buttons and features.
