5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, keeps attention/educational February 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
Several awesome features:
*Read to me...Narrator reads to you while it highlights the word that is being read on screen. Very clear and professional reading. You/your child can click on the characters on the train and they will make sounds and move around. It's entertaining and educational. Going from one paragraph to the next on screen is simple, just hit he play button. As we know with children, their attention spans are meant for variety, and in the middle of the book it has interactive activities like "drag the train track to the matching color", and carnival activities. The only bad thing is that there is only one story (17 pages), because it really is great and it would be awesome to have more stories!
*You can also choose to read the book by yourself, without the narrator reading it to you, and the characters are still clickable and fun in this version.
*There are two videos, both have good music, fun graphics, and cool story lines! They are songs and on screen lyrics for the songs are provided. They are both good messages, "Be prepared to be the best you are" and "Me and My Friends".
*The two games I alluded to earlier in the audio book (Kooky Karnival Fun and Track Build-up) are both available as standalone games separate from reading the book. Kooky Karnival Fun especially has replay value, you tab the stuffed animals on screen to knock them down.
*Paint...Three coloring sheets. There are 10 colors to use in painting, and you can zoom in/out on your coloring sheet to allow you to color better. It also easily allows you to take a screen shot of your coloring sheet and save it. The coloring is clicking on a piece of the sheet and tapping it to apply the color, not actually swiping your finger, so it's easy for any age to come up with a cool coloring combination.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice app even if not familiar with Wubbzy February 10, 2013
I downloaded this app for my 2.5 year old son. We're not familiar with the character from tv, but you don't need to know anything about him to enjoy this app. My son likes the most interactive option- where the story is read aloud and you can click on images in the pictures to see what they do. They definitely kept his attention, though at times he wants to skip ahead before the page is fully read. He loves the train tracks game and has gotten pretty good at it already. I like that the words are highlighted as they're read and you can repeat a word by clicking on it. Overall, this is a really nice interactive kids app, and I think it's probably even better if you're familiar with the Wubbzy characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute, but doubtful of educational merit April 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
My kids enjoy this app. Its cute, it has annoying, catchy music (which means my 3 year old LOVES it), but I am not sure its educational in nature. Its not completely mindless, but at the same time...its just an odd app. It was free, so I can't complain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great App February 19, 2013
By p
Verified Purchase
This app is very good. The graphics are very cute and kid like and very good too. I like the features to read yourself or read it to you. It works for all of my kids (2,5,7) Fun little adventure book.The read and play is a great thing for them too. Really love it.

Load screen is a little slow though, not sure if its my phone or the app. My phone inst the newest and best there is though.
It can be moved to SD which is good the program is rather large.

4.0 out of 5 stars Train track game doesn't work :( February 23, 2013
Verified Purchase
We got the Wubbzy space story app as faotd a few weeks ago & my son absolutely loves it. He's never even seen the show but that app is most definitely his favorite. It's a story, games, music/videos, & coloring all in one. It's great & keeps him entertained for quite awhile. So, when I saw this as faotd, I was super excited to surprise him with it. He got as far as the train game where you're supposed to drag the track to the correct spot & it just wouldn't work. I tried it then & they're was nothing I could do to get it working either. The track pieces wouldn't move. After that he lost interest & hasn't asked to play it since. I'm really hoping it gets fixed, cuz otherwise the Wubbzy apps are amazing!

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't please the two year old March 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
My two-year old grand daughter loves simple kid game son the Kindle and iPad, but this one missed the mark. She grew quickly bored since there weren't enough activities that she could easily manage on her own, and believe me, twos don't want help. This game is nice to look at - and is drawn just like the TV series, so it should appeal, and it did engage her at first. She saw it on my Kindle, clicked it open and began to play, but within five minutes, she went back to Daniel's Neighborhood and that was that.
