App description

ABC KIDS play is a colourful and interactive play area in a village setting for young children. There are many activities to do such as crafts to make in the Play School activity room (with off line simple instructions) and games to play with Giggle and Hoot and Bananas in Pyjamas. In addition, there is a fire engine station that needs cleaning and a car workshop where children can decorate their own cars and watch them drive through the village.

Reviewers comments

This looks to be an excellent app for young children with the trusted ABC brand. It is bright and colourful with great depth and variety. Kids can explore, create, investigate and play. There is also a section for Grown Ups with instructions to help children get started with the various games and activities. Some children might take longer to be able to play all of the games but they won’t be bored. There is also an expectation that more games and activities will be added to in time.

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 contains information about these concerns.
