Flying Bunny on Expedition
Welcome to the fun world of Eli Explorer, where laughing and giggling is certainly allowed: Eli is not just an ordinary bunny, he can also use his long bunny ears as propellers in order to fly around in the game world, which looks pretty funny. Starting point of the expedition is a cloud, where Eli wakes up on to follow the curious kid’s finger across the beautiful and colorful landscape.
The landscape of the game can be scrolled sideways, where a whole range of objects is spread across for Eli to interact with. So, if for example, he flies past the clothesline, the clothes fall to the floor, whereby each piece of clothing is named by a narrator via audio response. Besides these interactive objects, are also some special action areas, which have been marked with a yellow star. As soon as the bunny lands on one of the stars, a funny skit is played, where kids get to meet many more animals of Eli’s neighborhood.
Multilingual Learning Game
As we’ve mentioned before, kids cannot only have fun with this app, but also improve their vocabulary in 10 different languages. Whether Eli is at home having breakfast, drinking a yummy fruit juice at the tree-bar or playing hide and seek with his sister – the animated sequences are commented via a friendly narrator’s voice in simple sentences and objects are also clearly named. Due to the iTunes description, there are 100 words and short phrases, which are separated into the following semantic fields:
- Numbers (up to 10)
- Animal names (and sounds)
- Pieces of clothing
The different languages can be found in the main menu, where the following languages can be selected: German, English (UK), English (US), French, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Portuguese and last but not least Italian, because the app developers Colto come from Italy.

Eli Explorer | Kids App Rating
With Eli Explorer, the app developers Colto celebrate their debut on the App Store and instantly meet our taste. The cute characters, the interesting game world and many funny animated scenes will make children laugh and us chuckle. With the multilingual narration, Eli Explorer offers a clearly educational value compared to other kids apps that don’t contain narration. We also really like the fact that small changes provide for plenty of alternation in the game world. This way, kids will find other vehicles, foods and pieces of clothing when re-playing the game, with which they can interact.
All in all: A fun, educational and all around great app for toddlers and young children.
