Review:

For toddlers who are eager to learn, try Old MacDonald, Itsy Bitsy Spider, and Wheels on the Bus. The creative team at Duck Duck Moose has created - and delivered -- exquisite lessons of cause and effect with a charming and whimsical touch.

Colorful images beg fingers to tap on the screen. A swipe of a sticky finger moves the farmer's tractor forward. The faster the swipe, the faster the tractor moves. Tap on an animal and watch what happens. A chicken clucks and flaps her wings. The farmer does a little barnyard jig. "Turn" the page and cows fill a field - until one raises a coffee cup to toast another being whisked away by a space ship. And the fun continues. The Old MacDonald song can be heard as a piano trio or as sung in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish. There's even an option to record your own version for the soundtrack. And we're happy to report that turning off the music is a cinch.
