This app welcomes you and your child to the 3D Bears Dance Theater, a place so bright and upbeat that I challenge you not to smile while you have it loaded. No matter the age of your child, the 3D Bears will deliver a musical performance capable of engaging and entertaining them all.
Begin by outfitting and customizing your bear however suits you best, then watch as they dance their hearts out. An on-screen street-light will flash red when it is time for your bear to complete their routine so be sure to tap the screen as soon as you see it change color in order to earn a championship trophy.
The dances performed by each bear are energetic and spirited and feature a variety of moves that give each animal their own unique style. If your child happens to dismiss the bear before their time is up, they will be greeted by a sad face and a disappointed sigh ‘from the virtual crowd’ though it is very easy to start the action up to try again. If they succeed in tapping the screen at the first sign of that red light they will get the chance to see a very happy bear that celebrates with a golden winner’s trophy!
Of real value is the ability to adjust the speed of the countdown timer: faster for older kids, slower for younger kids.
What I liked: Half the fun of the app is the music but the added bonus is the ability to play dress-up with the bears.
What I didn’t like: I wish there was some narration or on-screen explanation regarding what your child needs to do with the spotlight (tapping the screen when it turns red). This can be hard to intuit without reading quite a bit deeper.
To buy or not to buy: If your little one loves music and dancing, this is a fun app that will keep them entertained.
