Caillou Check Up – Doctor’s Office | Doctor game app for kids
✔ iPad + iPhone | kids app for ages 2-5 years
Have you discovered the brand new Caillou app: Caillou Check up – Doctor’s Office on the App Store yet? With Caillou Check up, kids can join Caillou on his way to the doctor and play the doc themselves on their iPad & iPhone. The app is free, but includes one rather expensive *in-app purchase, with which you can unlock all of the content of this app.
Three different doctor games can be played for free. During the first Check up’s, kids need to measure Caillou’s height and weight. After that, kids can check up on Caillou’s tonsils and throat, whereby kids get asked to say “Aaaah!” into the microphone of the tablet or smartphone themselves. Also with the next ear check up, kids need to clap their hands for Caillou.
Further Check up’s via in-app purchase
This Caillou app explains 11 typical pediatric check up’s to kids, with the narration and help of Caillou’s voice. Before kids are able to take Caillou’s temperature, blood pressure and check his reflexes, they need to unlock the rest of the games via in-app purchase for $ 5.99 which will unlock everything. Whether this is worth it or not, you can best decide for yourself with the help of our YouTube trailer, where we introduce you to the Caillou games and those of the in-app purchase.
Caillou Check Up is aimed at toddlers and kindergarten kids and is pretty educational for this kind of age group. It prepares kids for doctor appointments and takes away their fear of the doctor’s equipments and Check up’s, which are all explained via narration in all the languages, that have been mentioned at the start of the review.
Caillou Check Up – Doctor’s Office | kids app rating
We especially like the comprehensive narration of this app. Caillou Check up is probably the only doctors’ game on the App Store, which does have narration, which thoroughly explains the check up’s and procedures. The games are a lot more realistic compared to other doctor apps, where kids mainly have to take care and examine animals or even monsters.
On the other hand, we find the in-app purchase a little too expensive and the child-safety disappointing. Even if the in-app purchase is protected with a math question, the settings are still accessible and self-promotion of the developers, is also displayed in the app. The app will therefore not win our Editor’s Choice award.
