Lalaloopsy Diner App Review

Big thanks to MGA Entertainment for this product to review

Lalaloopsy were once rag dolls that magically came to life when their very last stitch was sewn. Each doll has its own charming personality inspired by the fabric used to make it. Lalaloopsy live in a whimsical world full of silly surprises. With love and a little bit of imagination, you’ll see why Lalaloopsy are sew magical... and sew cute!

Get ready to race the clock as you flip, grill, stack and serve delicious munchies with the yummiest ingredients in 40 levels of fun at the Lalaloopsy Diner, where every customer counts! Earn cool surprises, and buy awesome upgrades to make your diner the coolest place in town!

I was so thrilled when this review opportunity came in because on top of our girls loving Lalaloopsy, we had a similar cooking game already on our iPad that was difficult for our girls at times. 

This game is rated for kids ages 6-8 and features 40 levels of play. As the levels proceed, you get more and more options for food and things get a little faster each time.

 My favorite things about this app is that food cannot burn and time doesn't start on the Lalaloopsy characters until you click on them. This gives the child time to catch up if need be and not feel rushed that time is running out on the characters to fulfill their order. 

With each set of 10 levels you change the foods you serve. This mixes things up for the kids, gives them something "new" to play, and I think it makes it more fun as you progress in the game. 

As you pass through the levels, things pick up speed, you have more people to serve, and you unlock additional supplies and foods. 

With each level you make money from selling the food made with income and tips which can then be used for upgrades to your kitchens. They offer free types of upgrades like wallpaper, and you can also upgrade your stove and pans that cost "money". 

I really like this game. It was just released in mid December, and perfect timing for our girls over Christmas Break. I like all the bright colors and cute animation in this game, and I would definitely recommend it for the price of $2.99. It's currently only available for iPad, iPhone, and iTouch, but it's great for at home or on the go when you need to occupy the kiddos for a short time. Another plus for myself is that there aren't random pop ups for other games to try to entice you to purchase something else. While we have a lock on purchases, pop ups make me nervous with your third daughter, so this is good if she happens upon the app.
