Dr. Panda’s Handyman | creative home improvements app for kids
iPad, iPhone, Android & Kindle fire | kids app for ages 2-6 years
Another Dr. Panda app which we want to introduce and recommend to you today is “Dr. Panda’s Handyman”, where the little Panda follows the footsteps of the Home Improvement (Tool Time)Star Tim Taylor, without his clumsiness of course. With this app, toddlers and older kids can surely and safely handle tools and use them to repair one or the other things for Dr. Panda, that come up in the various activities of this game. We can assure you that each hit with the hammer is a direct hit and your child’s fingers are still there after using the saw – promise!
A lot of things need mending and repairing in Dr. Panda’s neighborhood, for example next door at family monkey, who’s bunk bed suddenly broke apart. Of course Dr. Panda can fix this in no time with his awesome tools, such as a hammer, saw and nails. 13 different mini-games with various craftsman tasks await kids in this app. The paint bucket is also used quite a lot, to make old furniture look nice and fresh again. Kids can certainly choose the colors themselves and even mix them occasionally.
Perhaps you’re familiar with the painting app by Toca Boca “Paint my Wings”, because this kind of technique is also used in this Dr. Panda app, when it comes to painting the wardrobe. Basically, the brush stroke is reflected and copied onto the other side/door of the wardrobe sort of mirror-inverted. This way, the result will always look symmetrical and presentable – we love it!
Even the Elephant family have some home improvement to do, when it comes to their collapsed wall. Step by step, kids can help Dr. Panda fix the wall by putting the bricks back into the wall, evenly spreading the concrete and finally painting the finished wall.
In comparison to other Dr.Panda apps, you really notice the 3D graphics, which appear in some of the mini-games e.g. reconstructing the bunk bed. The combination of 2D and 3D is really good, even if it is kind of shear in style.

Dr. Panda Handyman kids app rating
We’re kind of missing the freedom of choice a little – i.e. by picking the tools. At this point, we prefer the app Alex- the Handyman, where kids need to pick the correct tools for each task. However, Dr. Panda trumps with way prettier graphics and his well-known, cute characters.
(+) interesting 3D graphics
(+) usual Dr. Panda quality
(+) fair price, no in-app purchases
(-) less freedom of choices
(-) representation error at the open front door (see below)
