Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Hickory Dickory Dock is an educational app that teaches kids a beginning lesson of telling time to the hour through play and basic physics concepts. Each of the 12 numbers on the clock takes kids to a mini-game where they interact with the mouse in a fun way. Kids can interact with the scene somewhat without setting the clock to the proper time, but can only interact with it fully once they set the time. Throughout the app, the song Hickory Dickory Dock plays, with each scene reflecting a different verse of the song.

Hickory Dickory Dock is a Education app that is designed for those 5.  The app has an overall rating of 3 out of 5 and a learning rating of 1 out of 5.

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

While Hickory Dickory Dock was created with educational intent, it appears to have limited learning potential. Nursery rhymes and number recognition would appeal to younger kids, but the activities at each level are more suited to older kids. As for telling time, that does not seem to be the intent since the minute hand is not part of the play. Kids would only learn to tell time on the hour.

The Support Level for Hickory Dickory Dock is about a 1 out of 5.
