This clever app builds on the foundation of the remarkably successful Peekaboo Barn. For Peekaboo Wild, instead of knocking on the barn door to be greeted by a mélange of farmyard animals, you tap the rustling savannah grass to view the exotic animals on the African plain. Each animal is identified by the sound they make as well as their written and spoken name in either English or Spanish. The educational focus is early literacy, language skills and animal identification. I couldn’t wait to upload this app because my toddler and I love the stunning graphics and sweet narration of Peekaboo Barn. The formula (concept, artwork, and even narration) are very similar but the animals and sounds make this a completely new experience for my little one. It’s a bit pricey considering you only get to peek at eleven animals on this safari tour, but it’s worth it to me; my toddler can’t get enough of the adorable hippo and I enjoy the elegance of this artful app.
