Customer Reviews

  • Nervous system not working

    by Sunnysmilixer

    Crashes when looking at the brain, still. I would love to rate this higher, but one system not working at all is a real problem. I've tried the recommended fixes, no luck.

  • Cool!

    by Zoeief

    Neat app. My child loves it. It has labels but I wish they were audio. My son is too young to read. The dashboard didn't work for us and we couldn't find the vomiting engine.

  • Interactive

    by Stephiek84

    This is a fun, interactive way to learn how every system of the body works. Children are experiencing how the body works first hand before labeling. However, I also think it would be beneficial to add labels and an explanation of how each system or a specific part within a system worked. I downloaded this app for my students to use in a center. I'm pretty sure that they will be as excited to play with it as I was.

  • Exelent app for 3 yo

    by Stofbl

    My child loves seeing how the body works. It is detaled enough that she is seeing the actual A&P and able to interact with it. It is a good teaching tool and she has fun with it alone.

  • Every realistic.

    by Norman Stokes

    Did a very good job on this . It so very cool.

  • So interactive and fun

    by Emolech

    This app is fantastic! Very interactive and great to teach little ones all about how the different systems in the body work. Great purchase!

  • Descriptions for parts needed

    by Pink37

    I am a smart woman. But I don't know how bone marrow works. Or every part of the body. It would be great to have a basic description read aloud upon touching each part (save for the private parts. I can see my kids now - "Penis. Penis. Penis. *giggling*) Anyway, add some descriptions and it's 5 stars!

  • Love it!

    by Sasdear

    My grandchildren are fascinated by this app. Great way to get them interested about anatomy very early.

  • Wow I love this

    by devxm

    My 3 year old can't get enough. Love teaching her as she plays. Would gladly pay for more interactivity and detail. Interaction is no well explained (not explained at all) but you figure it out over time and that's been part of the fun for us. Love it, thanks for making it!

  • Wow

    by Grace Weller

    I love how users can interact and explore the various body parts. Would be even better if more features are introduced.

  • Needs an update

    by jigglypuffy

    Starts crashing wen i try to play

  • Awesome

    by I've been ripped off!!!!

    I love this app I can't get enough of it. The only problem I have is the dashboard. I enter my age and hit the check mark but then nothing happens. Also I don't see we're the Im app purchases are (if there are any) but other then that this app is great! So plz fix the dashboard.


    by Puddles the dog

    This game is so fun! My favorite part is the heart. It is so realistic and educational. The brain is super cool, Tinybop you should add what the brain does while your sleeping, now that would be cool.

  • Great game for my child.

    by JBinEC

    This a great educational toy for my 5 year old. He enjoys the interactive nature of the game, and the gross out factor is just enough to keep him fascinated. He has learned a lot about anatomy and biology and this in turn has generated conversation with us and at his school. This is a very good educational tool.

  • Kids love and so does this teacher

    by Tech fingers

    The favorite part for the kids was the human heart. One kid kept saying ."this is my engine?" They play dr and write notes about the patient. Not a problem using it.

  • Fun and educational

    by VeronicaH

    When I downloaded this I never thought my 2 year old would be the one who had the most interest in it. He's since turned three and has regaled anyone he's met with his "body facts" ever hear a 3 year old tell someone where his esophagus was? lol He very much enjoys the digestive and skeletal systems. Thanks for a fun, interactive app!

  • Cool app but can't delete profiles or set child's age

    by djslots

    Would be 5 stars but there isn't a way to delete a profile once it's created as result my son has two profiles, none of which I can get to accept his correct age.

  • Application force closes

    by Dcarrasc0

    Looks great, but the app for closes. Running on iPhone 4S iOS 7, and graphics aren't completely HD. update soon please!

  • Good but...

    by EduNagashima

    very good but could have the reproductive system, the testes, ovaries, bladder, adrenal

  • Love it

    by Ebonythagreat

    Since I have the IPhone Gold it is not allowing me to download it what is the problem

  • Hard to review an app that just crashes

    by make_shift

    Looks promising but it's totally unstable. Can't even launch it.

  • Constantly crashes

    by Stephanie Paul

    This stupid app crashes every time I try to open it! This app should either get an update or maybe I should just simply delete it. I love it when it's actually WORKING though!

  • More of a toy than educational

    by Iron_City_Steel

    We were hoping this would actually explain what the pictures/graphics were showing and include names of the body parts. There are no explanations at all in the app so our kids used it more as a video game than really gaining an understanding of what goes on inside the body. We thought we were buying something educational but we came away disappointed.

  • Sound won't come back

    by jblasto

    Won't un mute after being muted. Can't remove profile. Buggy

  • Keeps Crashing

    by Mylove4my5

    Disappointed because it takes up a lot of space and keeps crashing first of all. Secondly, I liked the feeding and seeing where the good goes, but that really was about it to hold my kids attention. Of course it kept crashing do much that may of ruined the experience in itself, I'm deleting it to have the space for something else.

  • Don't buy

    by Momtxsan

    First app that I regret buying. Don't buy not really educational...not worth it. Waste waste and waste!

  • Couldn't say...

    by Daniel LaBarre

    This looks great and i am sure my child would enjoy it, but he hasn't been able to. Despite having almost 3gb of extra space on my 4s, and being connected to wifi, the app takes FOREVER to load, only to repeatedly crash every time we try to use it. It has been deleted and reloaded four different times now with no other results. I want my money back.

  • Ugghhh I HATE THIS APP!

    by Cam P. 950805

    I waited for like two days, still does not download!

  • Horrible

    by BaileeJoy

    Waste of money.

  • Love,love,love this app!

    by Princess Rachel

    I homeschool, and this app is used most often. My kids are even educating me on how the body and organs work! They really enjoy this app. Very informative, interactive, and fun! Worth the buy no doubt!

  • Ugh!!

    by Glitterlicious08

    This app keeps on crashing!!

  • Not impressed

    by AgnesM1009

    I thought it would be a lot more informational for $3.

  • Put the urinary system

    by By Haynes

    Put the urinary system on here,you can't go around all weily neily with this app without the urinary system.

  • Human body

    by Dee Wu

    An excellent teaching app for kids... Correct and smart. The artwork is sharp and kid appropriate. Well done

  • Fantastic tool!

    by ppisprivateeye

    This is one time when technology makes us smarter . Thank you for such a great learning tool! Just awesome!

  • Love!!!

    by Mohogany_98

    This is a very fun and educational app. :) It's interesting to play with all the new features. I only have one question. In the new update it says "New vomiting engine". Where is that and how does it work?

  • Greatest app ever

    by Cupertiino

    Very simple and very educative app, my kids 3,2 and 8 do understand how body stuff works now!!!

  • Wow! I LOVE this app

    by ~Anon~

    All I can say is wow! I have tried many different apps for my son, but this one really captivates him! He is always playing with it and giggling a little bit at all of the detailed effects. I highly recommend this app. Amazing graphics and interactions!

  • Fantastic app!

    by Yunes14

    This is a beautifully constructed app. My four year old loves it and keeps giggling with all the new features he finds. The best thing is that the app is a major discussion starter with lots of teaching embedded in the animations! So good! What's next Tinybop?

  • Usage Notes:

    by madmadirishman

    This app has lots of hidden depth, there's lots to discover. We got it for our 5 year old, but all our kids (even the 13 yr old) are spending lots of time with it. Note to parents, download the handbook from the website. Lots of great info in there, and great if you happen to homeschool. Also it gives lots of interaction tips, like how to turn on labels in other languages and make recordings. I've been leaving recordings for the kids for them to discover. The app asks for access to the camera to show how the eye works, it asks access for the microphone to demonstrate sound, and for pictures/location to show brain function. It doesn't phone home, just using it within the app. The privacy policy is very comprehensive. No collection at all of children's data, no analytics on children, no marketing to children. The short version: We love the human body!


    by Zoëlle Jane Aarons

    I love this game! But, you should add the reproductive system

  • Not that great

    by Edward R.

    Not sure why this app gets such great reviews. It's a pretty app that provides little educational value other than the pretty pictures.

  • Wow, just wow

    by MrSmithGoesToBed

    Did i say wow? What an absolutely great app. My incredibly curious 5yo can't get enough of it, and i'm learning a bunch in the process myself (have to google a thing or two as well). Im going to look for other apps by your company right now.

  • Great app

    by oCHRiSTiNAo

    My kids LOVE this app, and so do I! The graphics are amazing, my three year old has already learned so much. He can't get enough of it! The only problem I have now is the dashboard. Ever since the new update, I can't get the dashboard to stop bugging out. I also don't have access to the parent account, which is probably the most important part of this app for me. I'd like the ability to control WHAT my children are learning at certain ages back. PLEASE FIX THE DASHBOARD!!

  • Add more and a bug

    by Plaint687980

    I like this cool game, but I think you should put more like information about brains or urinary system or all the body info. Also, I found a bug where when you put a word to a body and it matches, it won't show the line! Please fix it and thanks for such a wonderful game!

  • +1

    by Neorline

    great app for medical students :)

  • The human body

    by J

    Good but you guys should add a what the brain goes trough while your dreaming

  • So cute

    by Lunabellagurl

    I love how interactive and fun this is! Great for kids! Please keep the fun updates!

  • Fun & informative

    by Dr3w2k

    The only complaint I have is how often it crashes.

  • Magnificent

    by Exercise21

    This App is so fun. Teaching you how the body works… hasn't crash on me yet.

  • مصطفى القندوح

    by Mustafa((•)(•))

    رائع وتعليمي

  • Great App

    by WebbSpy

    This is a wonderful app. Teaches by showing how the body functions. All of my kids enjoy it 5-15! I'd recommend it to anyone.

  • Asco!

    by pigon!

    Es una buena app para niños, pero he tratado de instalarla ya como por mas de 3 dias y no se instala! ... Totalmente decepcionado por la compra!

  • Very helpful

    by Amanda_777

    The human body is very helpful with school since at school we learn about the digestive system

  • Crashes constantly

    by amw_nyc

    App is unusable as it is because it crashes all the time.

  • Huh?

    by Harry McMerkin

    Last time I checked, women do not urinate through their vaginas. Could you please correct this? Even my six year old knows the difference. Other than that, great app.

  • Adorable but clunky

    by M.E.F

    I'm not sure if my iPod 5th generation is too slow, but it takes a really long time for the modes to appear. Would also love some way that it suggests what you can do in each mode. Otherwise, a really well-designed and made app!

  • Great App

    by vanessa brathwaite

    My kids love this app!!! Learning about their body in a fun way

  • Nervous system not working

    by Sunnysmilixer

    Crashes when looking at the brain.

  • Great

    by Thephantomdragon

    Still live the app after the update only compliant is the heart sound. Why change it? It sounded much more real before now it sounds aweful!!! When you change it maybe use an actual recording? And allow maybe different sounds for the different valves ect.

  • Keeps crashing

    by Soccerpro31

    The app crashes every time in the first 5 seconds please fix

  • Excellent and intuitive

    by Aynesh

    Excellent app. Watch the white blood cells attack and destroy viruses.
