This review of Max Ruby Bunny Bake Off contains the following information:
There are 12 recipes to follow and 5 recipes were completed. Three of the 6 colouring pages were trialed using different mediums.
This app is based on the popular Max and Ruby books and TV series, about a mischievous bunny and his big sister. Kids can mix up recipes and add a photo to their digital recipe book.. Fine motor skills are required to select ingredients and colouring mediums to colour the Easter themed pages.
This creative, cooking app features the popular Max and Ruby bunny characters created by author Rosemary Wells. Utilising the same distinctive artwork from the books and show, there are twelve recipes to follow and six different Easter themed colouring pages. Fine motor skills are required to select and portion ingredients and to select tools and colours in the painting section. The Easter themed colouring pages can be saved to the device’s camera roll and printed out.
The bright engaging, illustrations used throughout this app are the same distinctive style used in the books and TV show of the same name. There is opportunity to learn about sequencing and following instructions, counting and language development as the names of ingredients or amounts are stated in the recipe. . Between recipes players can tap on moving choc-chip cookies to munch them. It is also possible to add a photo of completed food items to a digital recipe book.
Parental co-play is recommended to assist with some fine motor skills such as slicing the lemons and dragging and dropping smaller items into the bowl. Parents can also discuss basic fractions and quantities as the recipe is measured out or items are sliced. The colouring section of the app has an Easter theme but there is a learning opportunity to explore the different mediums like paint and crayon, whilst colouring in the pages. Players are also able to select and drop Easter eggs and decorations to create their own unique Easter scene. It is possible to print off the pages to allow players to practise their colouring skills offline. A photo of the completed artwork can be saved to the camera roll of your device.
