Paddle Duck in Where's Carrie Cat? An Interactive Story

PaddleDuck Pty Ltd
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

Meet Paddle Duck and join his adventure to find Carrie Cat on the Farm. An engaging, fun, and educationally interactive story for your toddler with rhyme, song and dance. Great reviews and ratings.

As reviewed in Essentialbaby... "We liked that the app features lots of sound, colour and interactivity and it's quite intuitive. Our three-year-old tester liked counting along with Paddle Duck and making him swim".

The App is perfect for 18 month to 4 year olds and will delight your toddler as they have the opportunity to be part of the story and discover hidden surprises along the way. The App includes a rhyme to learn and recite, a dance to encourage toddlers to get up and move to and a fun song to learn and sing together.

***** The Carrie Cat app is a great introduction to the world of reading and adventure for small children.
Opportunities to discover, predict and engage in song and dance are woven seamlessly into this App from PaddleDuck Learning.
Annie Agnew. Head of Learning Technologies, PaddleDuck Learning*****
