Your children’s imaginations will run as wild as the animals they create in Monki Animal Builder! This fun new app allows your children to flex their creative muscles as they build wild and crazy animals. It’s kind of like Mr. Potato Head with funky monster flair. Your kids will smile, giggle and laugh out loud as they see what silly monsters they come up with.
The fun begins by tapping your finger to crack the 6 eggs on the screen to reveal 6 different bodies for your animal. Once you select your body, boxes wrapped by like presents appear at the bottom of the screen each one containing a selection of different body parts or accessories for your animal. You can choose googley eyes, long-eyelashed eyes, pig noses, bird beaks, elephant or bunny ears, furry monster arms or butterfly wings. There are pirate hats, eye masks and even a sombrero. Add sunglasses, a bowtie or a moustache for an extra bit of fun! Another fun feature of this app is that when your child selects a part of the body to put on the animal, they hear funny phases and dialogue from their animal. For example, when you select a nose, the animal might say “Do you like my nose?” or when choosing a mouth they might exclaim, “Now I can smile!” The possibilities are truly endless and so are the hours of entertainment that this app will provide! If your child saves their creation, it will go in a gallery of all of the saved animals that will be shared with other children around the world. In addition, your child can look at some of the animals children in other countries have created. The country flag is displayed in the bottom corner of the picture so they know where the animal originated from!
Monki Animal Builder has very quickly become the most played app in my family. All of my kids, which range from 3 to 12, love playing this app. They love watching each other play the app as well, and laughing together over the fun and creative monster-animals they create. This app would be a great way to pass the time in the car, the waiting room, the grocery store or to give you a few minutes of down time to throw together dinner or do some housework. It is definitely an app that will be enjoyed by the ENTIRE family!
