Mr. Potato Head Create and Play - $3.99 (Universal)

Reviewer Comments

Mr. Potato Head is an app built on the traditional Mr. Potato Head toy. As the child plays with the app, more parts are unlocked with a total of over 200 mix and match parts that can be unlocked. After making a silly character, the child can take photos of his/her creation to share and play with the character in a variety of scenes.
This app is great for working on identifying body parts both expressively and receptively. It can also be used for working on following increasingly complex commands. An example of this is: Give Mr. Potato Head a red hat and 2 brown eyes. The child can also work on expressive language as the adult can manipulate the app as the child requests parts to Mr. Potato.
We have used this app with children between the ages of 3 and 9 with diagnoses of speech/language delays, autism and learning differences.
