Yummiloo Rainbow Power kids app | learning healthy food, fruits & veg with fun and educative tasks
The app developers of Night & Day Studios have not only just recently published the fantastic “the very hungry caterpillar” kids app, but also the first part of a really brilliant educational game series, which will teach and encourage kids about healthy food and nutrition.
We love the idea of this kids app and want to introduce you to not only a fun and entertaining app for kids, but also one that will feed the kids interest for food with some very cute characters and awesome graphics. This app really deserves to be mentioned and kids apps, which teach kids useful and important facts, will always get our support. Welcome to Yummiloo Rainbow Power kids app.
After some spectacular opening credits, which starts with the happy Yummiloo song, which also spreads some joyful spirit, we find ourself in the blooming Yummiloo garden, where the rainbow machine needs to be filled with rainbow colours, which are produced from colourful fruits and vegetables.
A narrator will moderate the game and will explain kids every step which is necessary to get the rainbow machine working again.
Kids can witness the growing and decaying of the trees, patches, bushes if they don’t get harvested at the right time.
At the bottom of the screen is a little wagon, waiting to be filled with the fruit that has the wanted colour for the rainbow machine. Kids will need to distinguish between the ripe and unripe or even decayed fruits. This isn’t so easy as it seems, as all fruits grow and blossom at the same time, all over the garden. In between, the rotten veggies and fruits need to be collected and put on the compost heap, so that there is new space for new and fresh plants to grow on the field.
The game is interrupted by a short “Snack attack” mini game, where the peached coloured Yum Yum monster developed some big apetite during harvesting, so that it really needs to be fed.
Once the harvesting cart is filled up, the rainbow machine will be filled up next and kids will notice that even more colours are still missing. The idea behind this is, that you should eat a little amount from every coloured fruit and veg every day, which is not as easy as it sounds!
So, off they go back on the field, this time with another coloured cart to gather some more fruits and veg, until all colours have been filled up in the rainbow machine.
The beautiful graphical presentation is simply remarkable. However the gameplay doesn’t quite keep up with this. We’re missing a little alternation as the game is the same with each colour. It would also be nice to be able to gather all colours at once. It would also be nice and fun for kids, to be able to sort the fruits and veg by their colours.
This way, the decaying of the fruits and vegetables would make much more sense, if this would only occur with those that haven’t been harvested. At the moment, kids will only witness the decaying by looking at them and then putting them inside the compost bin, only because they just haven’t got the right colour. Kids often perceive the decaying as a bad thing and may think that they have missed something or overseen something, even if those rotten fruits and veggies end up on the compost heap to change into new soil.
Nevertheless, kids do have plenty of fun with this cute app.
Hint: You can change the navigation in the settings. Try out which one suits your child best.
Hint 2: If you’re looking for a more extensive app with the same sort of gameplay, you can check out this kids app: “Happy little farmer”, which we can also recommend.
