Reviewers comments

Animals Farm for Kids is a fun and educational game in which young children learn to listen to and follow a series of instructions of varying degrees of difficulty. This game introduces children to farm animals and farming chores such as feeding chickens and milking cows. While playing this game, children will learn to listen and concentrate in order to retain information needed to complete tasks. The player clicks on an activity, listens to instructions and then drags and places items on the screen in the correct order to feed animals, pick fruit and accomplish other tasks.  The app uses images and sounds to engage children and tasks can be learnt through trial and error. Offline play is recommended as unsuitable advertising is present while playing online.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
