Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Thomas & Friends: Talk to You uses voice recognition to engage kids in the story, occasionally asking them to respond to questions. One story is included with others available as in-app purchases. Before kids can play, parents have to give an email address to give permission for the app to record kids’ responses. Recording only happens while kids have their finger on the orange record button, and all voice files are sent to parents to share or delete, though they might be shared with third-party providers who help improve the voice-recognition technology. The free story includes Thomas resisting bed time and keeping other trains awake, though he does face some sleepy consequences.
