  • My Thoughts

I have reviewed many story apps in the past and this is one of them that I don’t particularly enjoy.    The story is about a fox who wants the sun to disappears (which is silly if you ask me) though the graphics are cute.   

But the story is deceiving in some ways.   Little fox do no hesitate to lie and steal numerous times.   In one of the activities, the child can also make him drink from a glass and it is quite evident that the fox is drinking alcohol.    Definitively NOT for children…

Also, some parts of the story doesn’t makes sense like for example where would Little Fox put the hose and sprinkler to send water to the sun.   Seriously, any child ages 2 and up would tell you that it doesn’t make sense.

I was very disappointed with various aspects of this app.   I decided that I didn’t want to keep it mainly because of it teaches the child that you can lie or steal as well as drink alcohol.

Though I am very strict with the kind of apps my children are using, other parents are more permissive.   So if you are interested in this app – for whatever reasons that might be beyond my understanding - Little Fox Gets His Wish is currently FREE on iTunes.
