Invasive Commercial, Frustrating Game
on February 17, 2012
This app comes with three Silly Songs with Larry, three clips from one of the episodes and a commercial for an upcoming movie. When you first open the app, only one song and the commercial are open. You need to "unlock" the other songs by earning enough stars on the first one. Game play involves images appearing for a few seconds on the right side of the screen, and the child must click corresponding things in the video. Some of them are easy, some are a bit trickier, and some flash by so fast I'm not sure how you're supposed to get them. On the first song you need to get almost all of the clicks right to unlock the next song. After that it gets a little easier. I wish it had either come with two songs unlocked or the first one was easier to do. My son (6) quickly became frustrated with the difficulty of it, and I had to unlock some for him so that he wasn't just watching the same song over and over.
He does enjoy the app now that the "spotisodes" are all unlocked.
The movie commercial is undoubtedly why the app is free, but it looks like one of the clips AND it sometimes plays before the clips. I thought that was too much, personally.
Also be warned that once the clips are all unlocked and downloaded, this does eat up a good amount of space, for a kids' app.
