**Update 2: Monkimun CEO has responded extremely positively to the picture abuse I stumbled across while shooting my video review. Although I am very well aware of the human resource investment involved, Monkimun has decided to take the route of human pre-approval of creature pictures uploaded before being published live and has disabled direct uploading. Additionally, the RATE US popup will be updated to at least include the parental lock.

Monkimun's concern and professionalism is to be commended.**

Drag 'n Drop animated creature creation that is a bit on the grotesque side... but in a way that certainly will delight kids 4 to 7 years. There is a minor parental lock used with two finger swiping in a random direction. Hardly a strong measure for this age range and may in fact be no measure at all with a seven year old, but it's something.

Game does use Unity-based graphics and FMOD Ex sound, so the RAM usage is on the higher end at 122mbs at idle. Installed at 48mbs with an option to move it to my SD card, where saved pictures are also placed. A choice of spoken languages and Music on/off (but not sound effects) is also available under the [Settings] icon on the main page. Back-key does exit cleanly.

OUTSIDE LINKS:
Does run OFFLINE, but if online, a small advert for MONKI HIDE & SEEK, a previous FAOTD by Monkimun, comes up in the lower right. The advert itself is not locked, but to get to the Amazon App Store, it does require the two finger swiping. The [For Parents] link in the upper left of the main menu, once again locked with two finger swiping, opens up Monkimun's own website. And a popup RATE US link that is not locked appears after about the 4th re-entry into the app.

1.0 out of 5 stars Inappropriate for younger kids August 26, 2014
Verified Purchase
This app is for younger little kids, yet most of the creatures are creepy, scary, or gross. Paid kids' apps shouldn't contain ads, at all. Ads that take children to the app store are out-of-bounds (this one does). Also, little kids shouldn't be linked to social media sites like Facebook. Flurry analytics in a kids app? No thanks! Also, $2.99 for this is app is very overpriced.

The app allows you to create and customize animals. There are 6 basic animals to work with and they are Hairy Ball, Pear, Butterfly, Potato, Snowman and Slug. They all have unique personalities. After you multiple tap an egg and your creature is hatched you can add parts to the body and customize it. While you do this the animal will make different facial expressions that are funny and entertaining. As you pull items out of the packages to use you can discard them by gliding them slightly up and them flinging them down to remove them from the picture. You can scroll the bottom bar to get different items to use like colors, monkey tattoos, hats, ribbons, ears, glasses, legs and arms....

When you are done designing your animal you can take a picture of him and save him in your photo file. You can look at you photo collection and with a two finger swipe unlock them and share them via email, Facebook and other methods. You can set your device into airplane mode to allow your children to play with the app and not purchase anything or share it with the world.

The app has an adult access which means swiping down on the screen to unlock the parental features. After you use the game and shut it down and restart it then a pop up ad appears in the corner of the screen pushing another game app called Hide and Seek. You need to use the two finger swipe to access it which is not that hard for a child to figure out. The game ad pops up every time you open the app in the future.

Important!

After you open the app about 4 times it will pop up with a Love It rating request. A single tap takes you to the Amazon App Store without any parental protection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Letting kids' imaginations run free May 11, 2014
Verified Purchase
Length: 2:51 Mins
Monki Animal Builder lets kids build their own wildly imaginative animals. Choosing from six basic shapes, they can customize their creations from a large collection of body parts and accessories. After they've put the finishing touches on their new creation, they can take a picture of it and save it.

It's great fun, and there are an unlimited number of unique animal creatures that can be designed. Each animal is animated and makes sounds, which adds to the fun.

Animal Builder is a definite winner for kids, letting their imaginations run free.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Very Slow Process for a Picky Child. October 5, 2014
By Alycia
Verified Purchase
Limited choices for which features you can add to your monster unless your child is very patient. You get one feature to see at a time which you must accept or reject. You do not have an option of a matched set (two of the same type of arm, eye, etc); if you like one and want the other, you have to keep rejecting your choices until the second happens to come up. It is nice that you don't have to have a matched set and it makes for some more silly monsters, I give the game designer kudos for that.
