Raise your hand if you have had to deal with a child asking for a new pet. Darah hasn’t explicitly done so, but she asks to, “See doggies!” ALL. THE. TIME.
We are not dog people. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Some of my best friends are dog people. It is nice to visit those people and their dogs. And then return to our dog-free house. Tim and I are in total agreement on that one, and I will tell you that it does give me a bit of concern to see that Darah might feel quite differently.
Fortunately, if you are faced with a request for a dog that cannot be fulfilled, there’s an app for that. It’s called Cube Dog, and it is FREE, and available on iTunes now!
Wanna see? Here’s a 40 second intro to your new family pet!
As you can see, Cube Dog helps you create your very own customized dog. Building the dog is super simple and fun, but the best part is getting to play with it! In the free version of this app, there are 3 different tricks the dog can do, and it also REALLY enjoys being petted or scratched. It’s actually quite adorable, and that’s coming from me, the “NOT A DOG PERSON” person.
If your child proves that s/he can take good care of this virtual pet, then you might want to consider purchasing the two extra packs that are available for this app ($2.99 each). They unlock MANY more tricks and features. Or you could just buy them a real dog. And then feed it, walk it, clean up after it, etc. My vote goes to Cube Dog. Plus, Cube Dog can go with you anywhere and everywhere, whether it be to the grocery store or to the beach. No need to hire a pet sitter!
June 13-17, the Cube Dog Facebook page is going to be hosting a VERY cool contest. Go ahead and like them so that you can be in the know when it launches!
I think that this is a very cute app for kids, and yes, even for adults (my Cube Dog is THE CUTEST! I’m not ashamed to say it!). I do think that the additional packs that you can purchase are needed in order to hold an older child’s attention very long, as what you can do with the free app is pretty limited. But the price is right for them, and I think very much worth it!
While Cube Dog provided me with the app to review, the opinions I’ve expressed here are solely my own and represent my honest viewpoint. Cube Dog, Clever Girls Collective and I promote Blog With Integrity.
