Put the Care Bears to bed, and then wake them up with the morning sun. Care Bears: Sleepy Time Rise and Shine allows kids to do just that. The app features all of kids’ favorite Care Bears characters, including Grumpy Bear, Cheer Bear, and Tenderheart Bear. Each bear must be lulled to sleep and woken up in a different way. Along with these bedtime and morning activities, kids also get to interact with the Care Bears through fun flying star and rainbow cloud games. All in all, it’s a delightful app for Care Bears fans.

Developers have created a quality app for kids. The app is divided into two main sections: Sleepy Time and Rise & Shine. In each section, kids will find a map showing the location of each of the Care Bears. A child-friendly voice provides instructions for kids, although there is a slight delay from the time kids open the screen to the time the instructions begin to play, which means kids sometimes tap around aimlessly for a bit. The app also features background music that kids will recognize from their favorite Care Bears videos or television episodes.
This app is not being rated for education.
While not very complex, this app is highly entertaining for children. They will enjoy helping each of the Care Bears fall asleep and wake up in different ways. Once all of the Care Bears have been taken care of, they can move to playing the star guiding or rainbow cloud catching games. Both are fairly simple, but challenging enough to keep kids playing for a while.
The app is a bit over-priced for what it allows kids to do. Kids wake up the Care Bears, help them fall asleep, and play two basic star and rainbow games. The appeal of the popular Care Bears characters increases the value of the app a bit, but not enough to justify the price.
Kids have access to the “more apps” section where they can view a large selection of apps. Access to the app trailers is unprotected, but a parental lock keeps kids from purchasing the apps. A parental lock also keeps kids from accessing the parent area.
