My kids love watching the DreamWorks Animation TV show, Noddy Toyland. It’s colorful, fun, engaging and I love that it teaches them about imagination and friendships. So of course, when we heard about the new Noddy Toyland Detective app from multi-award winner Kuato Studios and Dreamworks Animation, it was a must download for us!
About the app
The Noddy Toyland Detective app lets kids become a part of their favorite show! Children can play as Noddy, Toyland’s most famous detective in an adventure filled with storytelling, learning, and creative fun. With the help of Noddy’s friends Bump Dog and Revs the car, visit your favorite Toyland characters from the TV show and take part in fun mini-games and activities. Become a Toyland Detective and use the ‘Who, What, Where Book’ to solve mysteries. Once your child has solved all the clues, they can trace back their findings by reading the story of their adventures in a narrative photo storybook.
A Mom’s take
From a parenting standpoint, I love the app! It’s easy for kids of all ages to understand and use. My kids who are 2.5, 5 and 7 were all able to figure it out and solve different mysteries. Plus, I love that it helps to build investigation, language, memorization and creativity skills. The app has simple tap and touch controls so no getting confused for little ones, where you put your finger is where Noddy drives.
The app offers a passcode protected parental control area called “Grown Ups Corner”. In this sections, you can limit how long the game goes and manage other parts of the app. This is great for younger players who may get frustrated or have a shorter attention span. You can also choose whether you want to app to save photos to your phone or not.
There are tons of little mini games for kids to play throughout the game as well. Solve puzzles, repaint Rev the Car, make music with Pirate Band and more.
Once the mystery is solved, we had fun reliving their app adventures through the personalized storybook that’s created at the end of each game.
Ever since downloading the Noddy Toyland Detective app, my kids have been turning everything they do into a mystery! I’ve even added the app on my phone so we can have Noddy Toyland Detective fun wherever we are.
