What It Is
With the Wubbzy's Beauty Salon app, kids can help wash, style, and primp their choice of nine characters from the Nick Jr. series Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! Drag your chosen character into one of four salon areas: nails, makeup, hair, and spa treatment. Kids can cut, shape, and paint the nails of their favorite character or wash and dry the character's hair and give them a funny hat to wear. Other activities include face masks, plucking and shaving hair, and giving the characters a glittery makeup job. After each treatment is complete, the character has a dance party.
Is It Fun?
This app has a lot of silly and creative play that will definitely appeal to fans of Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! Kids will like creating a different look for each character every time they play.
Who It’s For
Wubbzy's Beauty Salon is for Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! fans ages 6-8. There are safety controls for the Apps and Parents sections on the homepage. You'll need to enter your year of birth for access, and this is designed to prevent kids under 13 from accessing these areas.
What To Be Aware Of
The first time we played, it wasn't always clear what we were supposed to do in certain areas of the salon. It will probably take kids some trial and error to figure out how to pluck someone's nose hairs or buff their fingernails, for instance.
This app is available on iOS and Android devices.
This app engage kids in some creative play as they design new makeup, hat, or fingernail looks for the characters. But this isn't an app that we see kids spending long stretches of time playing. It's more of an app to pick up for a few minutes of quick playtime while sitting at the doctor's office or waiting for the food to arrive at a restaurant.
