Initial Reaction: User friendly app offering search options for play ideas.
- Well thought out app with informative nuggets such as the benefits of “play”, how to use the app and further online details of the company behind the idea.
- Search functionality is by age, number of players, play setting and duration offering lots of flexibility.
- If you don’t like the sound of the play idea that is suggested you can “shake” for another idea.
- Play idea is shown with the benefits of the idea (further details of this can be found using touchscreen) and really clear instructions.
- The play ideas that it sourced were really quite good! Some of them I found quite obvious but if you are really stuck for ideas and just want a little inspiration it is a really useful tool.
- Free so nothing to lose by trying it!
- Some people may find the play ideas a little limiting. The choices weren’t particularly extensive and nothing too ground-breaking but they are simple and useful ideas. If you don’t like the look of what is suggested you can just shake for other options and they give you a starting point.
Value for money? Amazing! Great tool as it is free and definitely worth trying out particularly if you are feeling uninspired!
Overall Reaction: Great! My 2year old and 5 year old love to play and we spend lots of time outdoors on nature walks, picnics etc so it was useful to see new ideas when we are indoors – such as making masks and other fun ideas.
