Animal Pants


Do pandas wear pants? In this adorable app they do! Build your preschooler's matching skills by asking him to help the animals find their pants (in the right size, of course) in the beautifully illustrated nature scene. Along the way, your child can learn fun facts about the 12 different animals and where they live. The app is available in English, Spanish, French, and German and helps build early literacy skills across those languages.
