What is it
In this app children join 4 little fairytale pixies (Rose, Violet, Daisy and Lily) and their little unicorn Clover.
There is a lot to do as children explore the enchanted land. In the forest kitchen you can make some delicious jam with Violet. Go to the fairy workshop and sew a beautiful pixie dress from flower petals. In the fairy beauty salon, create a sparkling and glamorous makeup for Rose. Change Lily’s pixie outfit by combining fashionable dresses, jewels and flowers. Take care of unicorn Clover, clean him up and decorate with accessories. Help Daisy to pick up fruits in the forest fields and make more delicious jam! There is even a magical pixie mirror to watch videos in.
Children earn coins for completing tasks, such as cleaning the unicorn, these can be spent in the other areas of the Fairy Sisters app (such as buying clothes and make up.)

What our experts think
Fairy Sisters – Magical Forest Adventures is a delightful app which is engagingly animated; the graphics are modern and appealed to the target audience. Children really enjoyed playing the app and were keen to go back and play time and time again. The game play is simple and our testers navigated the app easily; the home screen and the instructions within each ‘game’ were clear and concise.
We liked how the app explored the idea of responsibility; children earn coins as they carried out jobs and then they were able to ‘spend’ their coins in different areas of the app. They quickly learnt that if they helped with the cooking or the took care of the unicorn, they were rewarded with coins.
There was a lot to explore in this app and our testers loved the way they were able to dress the fairies and put makeup on them. We really liked the way in which some elements of the app could be transferred to real life; one of testers was so inspired by the app, she asked her mum if they could have a go at making jam.
It would be even better if...
The app was really let down by the lack of a parent gate. There were far too many links to other apps on the first screen – they were far too easy to click on and download.
