Dr. Panda’s Supermarket | introducing the new Dr. Panda app for kids | Android iPad & iPhone
Most of you will probably know some of the Dr. Panda apps on the App Store, then you will also know how brilliant they all are. Today we would like to introduce you to the new Dr. Panda app: Dr. Panda’s Supermarket. We have checked out the wide range of groceries and goods in the Panda bear’s Supermarket and will introduce you, to all it’s funny and educative activities, which this app has to offer. This educative kids app is all about shopping, but also introducing activities to kids, which show them how to run a Store.
If you’re already familiar with Dr. Panda apps, you won’t have any problems at all with this app or finding your way around, which doesn’t mean that there aren’t any surprises waiting for you. When the sliding doors open and the new customers enter the Supermarket, which is actually a pretty big Supermarket and stretches out on several iPad and iPhone pictures, the game can begin. As soon as the customers received a shopping cart, they’ll push it straight infront of a shelf, a stand or a vending machine, where one of the mini games will start.
The shopping list game
Different goods and groceries are shown on the bottom of the shopping list, which need to be found on the shelves. The screen can be moved sideways for this procedure, so that the search game can begin.
Kids can develop a keen interest for weighing fruits and vegetables on the scale in the Supermarkets. In this kids app, kids have the opportunity to weigh themselves, identify the correct fruit or veg and finally get to label them too. They can repeat this procedure as often as they’d like.
The notorious deposit bottle machines are also available in this Dr.Panda app, there are in fact three of them, where kids can learn to organize and sort the different types of bottles, buckets and cans.
The candy stand
Kids can pick and mix sweets and candy from a big range of confectionery.
This must be the highlight of this kids app, as it has a digital till with a scanner, where kids can scan each item, but also get to learn how to use money, by sorting the money at the checkout.
Just this once, kids are allowed to play around with the escalators, which seem to only work, by using the anchor winch. Once the customers reached the bottom, they get to load the goods into their car.
All in all, are 10 very different and brilliant activities for kids to discover and play, which do not only take place in the Supermarket, but also on the carpark outside of the Store and in the stock/storage area. The app developers of Dr. Panda have also used 3D graphics this time, which makes the app quite different compared to the other Dr. Panda apps.
We’re looking forward to more 3D graphics for the future Dr. Panda apps.
The game with the forklift, is actually an educative game, where kids get to learn about shapes and sizes, but also train their logical and spatial skills.
Dr.Panda unloads the Truck with the forklift and kids will need to place the boxes (they do look like Tetris blocks) on the right shelves – very clever!
We did kind of expect one or more activities at some stages, maybe more interactivities in the games, which were often finished with a simple swipe action. At the checkout, the money was only sorted into the till, but not counted, the game is therefore missing a valuable and important learning aspect, which would have been useful for pre-school kids. We can’t really blame the app developers for this, as they do mainly develop kids apps, for toddlers and kindergarten kids, their age restrictions are 2-6 years. All in all, you could say that some kids aged 5+ years, would probably be unchallenged with this app but definitely not bored. The design and presentation of this kids app, is remarkable and way too attractive, we even catch ourselves saying “oh- look there, wow, have you seen this?”
Brilliant and most beautiful graphics, interesting Mini-games, very cute and adorable characters, a wide range of activities and all for a bargain price. This app is definitely worth the editor’s choice award!
