  • Better than the real thing!

    by jeffj911

    Very fun, tons of costumes and sets and animations. I wish the interface for swapping pieces encouraged experimenting with mixing the pieces from different costumes more... Or at least let you swap two items without having to place one back into the box first.

  • Still a favorite in our house!

    by LordOfTheDiapers

    My kids have been big fans of this since I first saw it on the app store last year (around their second birthday), and they seem even more into it as they are turning 3. The latest update works great for me; thanks. Switching to iOS 7 messed with lots of my apps. Potato Head had only occasional hiccups compared to some, but I still appreciate the quick update to make it work well.

  • Fixed issue after update

    by Gadget geek

    Had some issues after the last update until I uninstalled and then reinstalled the app. Since then, the app works great. Kids love it.

  • My 2 year old loves this app

    by Azhouseagent

    My daughter is 2 1/2 years old and she loves this app. It has a lot of fun features, nice animation, and a lot to keep her attention. The only change I would make would be a reset button so she didn't have to take each item and put it back into the box individually. Add that and it would get 5 stars. However, I have nothing but good things to say about this app. It's a fun app that is easy for the little ones.

  • Good but updated and now it doesn't work!

    by Greatoneone

    Update made the app freeze and now it doesnt work!

  • Fun for all ages

    by TexasSpeechie

    I use this app as a reinforcer and reward for kids during my speech therapy sessions. The kids absolutely love it!

  • Great entertainment and fine motor skills

    by .ali5on.

    Great entertainment and fine motor skills.

  • Potatoe..

    by CurTab(:

    ..Head rocks! Cute outfits Highly recommended Not only for kids

  • Problems w/ iOS 7?

    by PlaysInSoil

    Since I updated to iOS 7, this app freezes. I gave it five stars, though, because when it worked, my 3-1/2 year old daughter loved it.

  • Can't download

    by Lmf mom

    I bought it and downloaded to one device. The very next day couldn't download it to another one on the same account. It says "not available" even though it still comes up in a search. Now one child has access and the other doesn't, not fair.

  • Stopping working w/ iOS 7

    by darche1971

    My 3 yr old nephew LOVES this app but it stopped working with iOS 7. Please fix soon.

  • Great app for kids.

    by I don't really have a nickname

    Great interactive fun. A I have a 4 yr. old and a 2 yr. old. They both love it and are able to navigate and interact very easily. One suggestion: once done building the potato it would be nice for all the pieces to fall off or go back in the box with the push of a button. My 2 yr. old ends up with many parts after a while. My 4 yr. old figured it out after the second time.

  • Awesome!

    by Kadenabc

    I REALLY Love this game! What i dont like about it: They should make it so when your done with the show, it deletes the Mr. Potato head!! ☝

  • Love it!

    by Roxas_Aix

    My four-year-old loves this app.

  • What a waste of money!

    by Kliksweet

    It's slow and lacking!

  • Doesn't work

    by MrsForty

    Wish I can leave it 0 stars but they don't have that option. The game never loaded and it would take 20 min just to get to the red curtain and freeze. My 2 year old never got to play this.

  • Unhappy 21 month old

    by Rouquin358

    This used to be my son's favorite app, but the update messed it up. We only get part of each of the "outfits" for each character (missing ears, eyes, mouths, pants, etc.). And in the scenes we used to see little figures like llamas, etc. but now there's either "nothing" or a weird white box where the figure was. The potato head guy acts out the scene, but with "nothing" or with a white box. Very odd & makes my son SCREAM! Also some of the characters & scene options won't download. I deleted the app & reinstalled it but that didn't fix it. We are using the latest OS & have the same issues on both our iPad 2 & iPad mini. PLEASE PLEASE FIX!

  • UPDATE THE APP!!!! Paid apps need UPDATED!

    by Marshall U ATO

    This app is great but it's been freezing and closing. Needs an update. When you pay money then it needs to be updated!

  • Sound stopped working with backgrounds

    by Meadmaker93

    The sound works during assembly, but not with backgrounds. It's just drumroll and.. Silence! Also, web support is only a query FAQ setup, and not a contact with issues. It's a paid app. Please fix.

  • It was great until latest update

    by Mommy of 2 Jen

    When you had us update, now the app freezes and all my lands say download failed, retry and they still won't work. You need to fix this app now please! Usually a great app, until this latest update and now it barely works!! Usually 5 stars, but now that it doesn't work it's a 1-2 stars.

  • Potato head

    by Pamelajnoble

    Paid $2.99 for app and it won't load after trying everything.

  • Crashes

    by Ash-45

    My kids love this game, hence why I had to purchase the highest money package to get all the sets. The problem though it always has problems. The clothes always say "download fail" which I don't understand because we downloaded them months ago and they did work. It really is day by day when things want to work. Then when making him act with the backgrounds, instead of being scared by a ghost, for example, the ghost is just a big white box. For how much money I have spent, I would like this is work every time. Unfortunately it rarely does. Very disappointed, especially because this my kids favorite game but they barely get to play it because it always has problems.

  • Nice app

    by Broome987

    My 2 year old enjoys it. When switching between playsets, there should be a way to remove all instead of having to put each piece back in the trunk.
