App description

Zero to Three: Let’s Play is an educational app for parents. The central objective of the app is to explore the menus and learn about entertaining activities to pursue with a baby. The skills involved in playing this app include motor skills, as well as basic comprehension.

Reviewers comments

When the app is first opened, a menu screen is presented with a variety of options. These are broken into ‘age’ categories (0-18 months, 18-36 months, 3-5 years) and by ‘activity’ (including: boredom busters, chores, commuting, meal time, bed & bath time and shopping). The app is based around a central dashboard, which contains various options. These include options which allow players to keep track of their favourite activities, monitor and view photos they have taken with their device camera, as well as share photos/comments from the app via both Facebook and Twitter. When clicking into an age group, the various activity types are shown, and upon choosing one of those, users are taken to a screen with a vertical list of options. These include things such as ‘Blanket Play, Shadow Sharing, and Making Books’. Clicking on any of these options opens a page explaining the activity that parents can choose to try with their baby and these are tailored to both the selected age bracket, as well as the activity type required. For instance, the Blanket Play page brings up a screen of text stating things such as “Place your baby on a soft blanket on her tummy. Swing a light scarf in the air above her and say, ‘Feel the wind!’. Let the scarf gently fall on her back and then slowly pull it off her. Spending time on her belly is important for building upper body strength and helping her get ready to crawl.’
Within these, users can choose to save to ‘favourite’ activities and then have the option of accessing them more quickly at a later date through the ‘My Favourites’ section. The ‘My Photos’ section directs the user to the photo gallery on their device, where they can view all of the photos that they have taken with the device.

There appears to be no in-app purchasing or advertising within this app and it is stated that Zero to Three, the developer of this app, is a US based non-profit organisation.

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.
