Description of Product: “Funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and produced by WGBH, D.W.’s Unicorn Adventure encourages nutritious snacking for kids ages 4-6, and ARTHUR fans of all ages. In the app, players have the opportunity to help Arthur’s little sister D.W. save a lost unicorn using the power of healthy foods.
In D.W.’s Unicorn Adventure App, D.W. must help a lost unicorn make his way from Elwood City to Unicornia. To do this, players gallop, jump, and super-jump through three fantastical worlds – Forest, Castle, and Clouds – with 12 levels of increasing difficulty.
To fuel the adventure, players need to eat a rainbow of energy-packed snacks. Players are encouraged to eat all the colors of the rainbow by collecting 12 kinds of fruits and veggies: strawberries and apples; oranges and carrots; bananas and pineapples; bell peppers and broccoli; blueberries and plums; and grapes and eggplant.
The game also teaches kids foods to avoid. For example, players need to stay away from junk food, so that they will not lose energy and can continue to advance in the game. The six kinds of junk food that will hinder performance include: sodas, chips, cookies, donuts, french fries, and candy bars.”
Review of Product: My iPad is full of apps for Noah – some he comes back to every once in a while and a few are his prized favorites, ones he plays with almost every day and this app is one of his faves for sure! At 6 he is at an in between age as far as apps go but this app keeps his attention and the messaging is so important I’m happy to have to pry him away from the iPad! He doesn’t watch Arthur anymore but knows the characters and I’m happy that he sometimes tells me about the food and nutrition he has learned from this app!
I received a sample of this product to review at no charge but my opinions remain my own.
