A fabulously, engaging and interactive app that acts like a virtual dolls house.
An incredible quantity of features of this house are interactive: open doors, feed the family cakes, pour a bowl of cereal and milk, put the rubbish in the bin, open the curtains, put on a CD, blow bubbles, turn on and off the lights and far, far more.
The free version includes the kitchen and living room with the paid version including a range of additional rooms: bathroom, bedroom and garden.
What our experts think
No other dolls-house apps we’ve seen so far come close to provide the level of interactivity and engagement of this app. It’s sufficiently simple for a 2 year old to enjoy and has enough functionality that it could still be used as a virtual dolls house for a 7 year old. We believe strongly in the importance of imaginative play to child development making this a powerful app and one we particularly love (although do encourage your children to engage in imaginative play away from a screen too).
It would be even better if…
There were natural breaks included after a certain period of play to encourage the children to stop playing!
