Quality

Gro Flowers contains many quality design elements. A nice variety of colors and brushes are available for use in the flower design portion of the app. An undo button, in the drawing portion of the app, would be helpful.

Education

Through activities designed for young children, children will be introduced to the concept of pollination, the important role bees play in the process and the negative impact the use of pesticides can have on the process. No reading is required making this a great app for toddlers, preschoolers and early elementary age children. Gro Flowers can also provide additional educational opportunities; such as colors, shapes and improving fine motor skills.

Entertainment

Children will enjoy the creative play opportunities Gro Flowers has to offer. They are able to design the flowers used in the garden. A good number of brushes and colors are available in the beginning, children are rewarded with additional brushes and colors as they pollinate flowers and collect honey.

Value

Taking into account the number of educational and entertainment opportunities this nice quality app has to offer makes the price of just under three dollars one that families can consider. The addition of more activities and features would make this app a must have.

Child Friendliness

Gro Flowers is an app designed with young children in mind. The fact that no reading is required during the use of the app is one such example. Another example is the protected section for parents on the main screen. This section is protected by the simple method of holding the button for a short amount of time and is only available when entering the app. Developers may want to consider making this protection a bit more difficult to bypass considering that it does take the user out of the app. Parents will not need to worry about their children accessing in-app purchases or ads in the use of this child-safe app.

Gro Flowers provides multiple educational and creative play opportunities, and it is fun to play.
