How I Use It
I've mainly used this app for harmless entertainment for my own kids. However, it is also a popular choice among the younger set when doing centers in music class. It is a fun, low-maintenance option when I need to be focused on another group of kids.
My Take
I wouldn't use this app to teach any major musical concepts, but it sure is fun for little ones. It is marginally educational to experiment with the different combinations of sounds and changing pitch by moving characters to different spots.
