What It Is
The characters from the Pango series of apps, including the raccoon group leader Pango and his four friends Piggy, Rabbit, Fox, and Squirrel, are getting all dressed up in the new Pango Disguises app. Kids can go on five different adventures with the characters as superheroes, pirates, witches and wizards, knights, and dinosaurs. In each adventure, a story is told and kids can shake, tickle, and touch the screen to activate animations within the stories. There is also a bonus drawing game that allows kids to draw their own superhero, dinosaur, pirate, jack-o-lantern, and dragon or dress up Pango any way they want. Kids can save their drawings to the smart device's photo gallery.
Why It’s Fun
This app is so cute. Each of the five stories is super silly and contains many different touchpoints for interactive play. Many of the stories end with candy, which we're sure young kids will love. The drawing activity offers creative play within the app and inspires kids to use their imaginations to tell their own stories.
Who It’s For
Pango Disguises is for ages 3 and up. Because reading is required in this app, younger children will need an adult to guide them through the play and read the stories aloud.
What To Be Aware Of
This app is compatible with the iPad and iPhone as well as Android devices.
The home page does have a button for purchasing additional Pango apps, but in order to access the app store, a parent must answer a math equation.
The app is available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese.
