Bubble Guppies: Animal School Day entertaining educational kids app by Nickelodeon
✔ iPad + iPhone | kids app for ages 3 – 6 yrs.
Do you know the fun little Mermaids and Merboys called the Bubble Guppies, which are aired on Nickelodeon? If you don’t know them yet, you can watch the preschool kids series Bubble Guppies online on Nick jr.com for free – or you can purchase the new Bubble Guppies app, which we are just about to introduce to you pretty thoroughly. Thoroughly, because it’s not really possible to show you in any other way, as this Bubble Guppies app is super comprehensive and full of educational games about animals.
Speaking of quantity and being comprehensive, the Bubble Guppies app is a 1,4 GB huge app, with which we also had to overcome a logistical challenge in terms of the space on our device. It is however worth to make some space on your iPad/iPhone for the Bubble Guppies app, because children will simply be amazed by the app. The big amount of space and memory usage is due to the awesome animations, professional narration and many more multimedia aspects. The boundaries between the kids series and the educational interactive games basically become blurry in this Bubble Guppies app. It’s surely an adventurous and very special experience!
An underwater school lesson
Once arrived at the underwater school, kids are introduced to the little mermaids and merboys of the Bubble Guppies series. Animal pictures are shown at the top of the screen, which already give away the subject of today’s Bubble Guppies school lesson, which is all about animals. We decide on the picture with the dolphin on and therefore start of with the first of the many educational games.
So that more kids are able to use this app, kids can set up up to 4 player profiles, especially as kids can earn rewards such as stickers, after completing each educational game, which of course, they want to keep and collect for themselves.
The dolphin school day
Animals differ from one another – but animals can also be similar, think about it. This is a dolphin. Dolphins have a large fin on their top. Do you know any other animals that have a fishtail? Drag them to the middle of the big bubble.
The bubble slowly becomes bigger and all animals are named and presented with little animations.
In the second round, Mr. Grouper the fish teacher, explains to the kids, that the dolphin also has two fins on his side, to steer himself. (2. game: find all animals that have fins)
Before the feeding game begins, a funny and surprising joke interruption awaits kids. It is just impossible to mention and introduce you to all of the content of this app in detail.
In the feeding game, kids learn four typical kinds of foods that the animals eat. Kids can pick the food in the food shop where they get to operate a wheel of fortune with food, which they then get to feed to the animals. Careful, the feeding machine doesn’t work properly, which is why things can get pretty messed up.
After the little dolphin’s been fed, it needs to be returned into the ocean and back to it’s parents.
An adventurous ride can be expected in the following Jeep game, where the dolphin is returned to the ocean. Kids need to avoid obstacles and decide which road to turn into at the crossroads. At the end, the dolphin is happily reunited with his dad – how cute!
Once a game with an animal has finished, kids are rewarded with a sticker, thereunder interactive toys for a little dog. Another thing worth mentioning is another game, which is directed at the subject “healthy eating”, where kids get to look inside the Bubble Guppies lunch boxes.
Those are locked with different kinds of lock mechanisms, which even make the opening of a lunch box an educational delight in this kids app. Every now and again there’s some funny nonsense going on, like a tiger toast that’s being brought out of a lunchbox. The animations are simply awesome and totally Hollywood-style, they also justify the high memory consumption of the app – that’s for sure.
