More of a 'test' for social vocabulary than a game for preschool kids

This app was not what I expected, and I'm disappointed that I paid for it. My son tried it out, and he LOVES the iPad and pretty much anything on it! He does have special needs, and he does not speak, but he is a master at using the iPad. He began navigating his way through the program easily, but he lost interest pretty quickly.

My recommendation is to save your money. There are free educational apps out there that have more educational value.
