    "Cookie Monster's Challenge is an Android and iOS puzzle game for kids. I don't see on the page listed the recommended age for the game, but considering that it is from PBS and has the Cookie Monster in it, I would guess that it fits the age range of 3-5. I would say it does address the problem."

    "I was looking for an Android app when Disney Story Central was offered to me. I was disappointed as this was only for iOS. Unless you have an apple product, this app will not work for you. This was a waste of my time."

    "This is an excellent app to have on your phone to give to your child when you're in a busy restaurant or need to entertain them for a short while. It's fun and the added benefit of learning numbers is awesome. It keeps them engaged and they're learning at the same time!"

    "I've been looking for this sort of app for a long time, and it seems to fit the bill. It looks good and it seems like it would help a kid learn the alphabet quickly. I like that this is an educational app that seems to have plenty of content to keep kids interested and learning something worthwhile instead of learning how to tip over piles of blocks with a slingshot and a bird."

    "Peekaboo barn is a game that I feel is tuned more for children between 1 and 2 years old. I think as children get closer to five years old they will definitely lose interest in this type of thing. For a 1 or two year old this game is great for development and will keep the child entertained for hours!"

    "I do like the idea behind having the child draw in this app. However, a lot of tablets and phones do not support drawing very well so I wonder how this app would handle those kinds of devices."
