Great for babies!

My 9-month old likes this game a lot -- suffice to say that she goes from wanting to chew on my nook to actually interacting with it.

It's true that this would be a VERY boring game for older children, and that the audio enunciation leaves something to be desired. But the sound and movement are interesting for babies, and I think that it's a great intro to touch-screens since all the baby has to do is touch the screen for it to respond (i.e., no sophisticated fine motor skills required).

The only negative is that it sometimes seems to get "stuck," where touching the screen doesn't make new balloons appear and I have to click my nook off and back on. And you really should remember to exit the game when your baby's done with it, or the next time you turn your nook on (say, when you have a baby sleeping next to you), it'll greet you with a loud "HI PAPA!"

That's it?!

I cannot believe I just spent a buck on this ridiculous game. You touch the screen and a cute little balloon appears. Fine. You tap the balloon and a little kid voice says "it's a bear!" or whatever. The voice is baby-talk, it would not "teach" anything. That's it. Tha...

    Fine for baby

    This IS a very simple app, but then IT IS for babies. My son is 6 months old and drags his little hand accross the nook, and it responds very easily. He is entertained by it for several minutes at a time. Good for a starter app for infants.

    Cute to download if it were free

    If this were an android market app then it would have been free and more worthwhile. My 18 month old bores of it quickly, but it's cute.

    Cute game, but...

    The child's voice is adorable but I wish the animals names were more intelligible.
