Apps are the new video games but that doesn’t mean they have to be endless hours of staring at a screen. My girls both get some screen time on their iPads, but they apps they play are generally educational and something I feel would be worthwhile to their development. My oldest daughter is harder to please and the games she plays has to hold her interest. When I told her she can play a game about a farting bug, she was a little surprised, “You would let me play a fun game like that!?”
Little did she know, there was a catch. This farting bug, Luna, would teach her about music, sorting, and other skills with mini games throughout gameplay. We learn about Luna’s talents and learn to accept those around us, while also learning how to use these special talents to get further in the game.
I love the parental features within the game as well. I can set a time limit, which is a big thing in our house. We limit the amount of time the girls can play on their devices, and having a game that has this feature built-in is a plus. Although this game is recommended for kids from 4-8, my 2 1/2 year old loves the sorting and matching games just as much as her big sister. I love that for only $2.99, I can get a game from the App Store that both my girls can enjoy, and after that fee, there are no hidden in-app purchases after that! There is nothing more disappointing than downloading an app, falling in love with it, only to discover that in order to get further, you have to pay a fee. Little Luna doesn’t do that!
