Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Planes: Fire & Rescue is a storybook version of the movie with added interactive games, puzzles, and activities. Dissimilar to past Disney storybook apps, this one is offered as a free download preview and requires an in-app purchase to unlock all the content. Kids only get three parts into the eight-part story before hitting the end of the preview. The fire is quite realistic-looking for a cartoon, especially with the sound effects, which may be frightening for kids. The book includes short scenes from the movie, but they’re not quite as intense as the full version, making it a good option for kids not ready for the full in-theater experience. 

Planes: Fire & Rescue is a Entertainment app that is designed for those 5.  The app has an overall rating of 3 out of 5 and a learning rating of  out of 5.

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Our star rating assesses the media’s overall quality.

The Support Level for Planes: Fire & Rescue is about a out of 5.

The interactive book retells the movie story of Dusty, the former racing plane who trains to fight fires in a national park using storybook pages and scenes from the movie. Kids join in with interactive activities, flying the planes, putting out fires, and more. Two activities are offered outside of the story: a scene builder and jigsaws. In the scene builder, kids drag stickers onto the page and then watch them animate, flying across the screen. The jigsaw puzzles come in several levels of challenge, with six-, 12-, 20-, or 30-piece puzzles.
