No sound? 4/5
Not sure if there should be sound but there isn’t any on our app. Otherwise great.
UI is not easy for kids 3/5
I really want to love this! The concept is great! Almost all the buttons are on the very bottom of the screen, which causes the app switcher to kick in on iPhone Xr (and other X’s) making the app very frustrating. Apple specifically warns against placing buttons in that safe area because of the system gestures.
Sound not working 1/5
I installed the app on my iPhone 8 Plus and IPad but the sound it’s not working! Disappointed!
Website has Been Offline for 3+ Weeks 1/5
Website to buy Parker subscriptions has been offline for 3+ weeks yet the app updates still come through. What’s going on? Did seedling shut down?
Kind of lame 2/5
The app is too repetitive, too many flaws to start with right when my daughter open it on xmas day the pic didnt work. I wish that there were more options to play with, my lil one likes it i dont... is not worth the price anyone can get games like the app for free
Toddler loves it 5/5
By S Neill
This is the kind of gift for a toddler I can get behind! My 3y/o received this for his bday from his grandma and I am so happy he did! It incorporates technology while still focusing on creativity and imaginative play. He loves playing "Dr. Bear" with the iPad but still takes Parker to bed with him every night to cuddle. It is really the best of both worlds! In the overload of gifts from both Christmas and his birthday (which was a lot!), this was and still is by far his favorite. Highly recommend!
Works great after update! 5/5
My daughter got the bear as a birthday gift, and we tried using it this weekend and the app was... limited, to say the least. I came here to leave a bad review and saw most of the reviews had a response about a new update to fix it. Yup! With the new update, everything is working much better, and my daughter seems to love Parker much more today.
App is working 5/5
Now the app is working!! And my daughter loves it. Had a little hiccup/ bug when we first downloaded it. But it has been resolved and the developers at Seedling were very helpful!
Slow app 1/5
By Aileen D
I purchased Parker bear so that my daughter would have the whole experience. I was under the impression that maybe we needed to wait 24 hours for her to be able to unlock the rest of the features but was wrong. All she is able to do is feed the bear blueberries, and see the bug in the digestive tract. I was looking forward to being able to take picture of the bear in different scenery but that part of the app isn’t working. I thought it was my iPad but was wrong. The iPad is updated to 11.2.1 so i know that isn’t the problem. I expected so much from it since the video advertised and amazing product. I’m am truly upset over this. The app lags and is slow to the touch sensor. The part of the app to take pictures of Parker in real life (such as on the couch or at the park) does not work it only shows a black screen.
Same issue as everyone else 1/5
We only have three features. For what we paid for Parker, I’m disappointed. My daughter barely plays with him because she’s played the three features already. I’m feeling like he was a waste of money, which is too bad. Parker was my favorite gift to give her for Christmas.
Response Received 4/5
I am changing my review based on the responses I’ve received back from the developers. The app is now working for me and my daughter is very excited to have more to play with in the app. After observing her over the next few days I’ll return to upgrade my review to five stars.
This time of year companies are often short staffed to allow employees more time with family. Considering this, their response was very quick. I am grateful to Geoff and the support team who are likely working long hours due to this bug.
Not even worth 1 star 1/5
App crashes repeatedly and my daughter cannot do anything other than feed and look at germs, the xray is not even a option on the app, i feel horrible as a parent/uncle for buying this as a christmas gift for my daughter and my niece if i could i would not even give this review 1 star if i cannot find a fix i will be returning the 2 that i bought
App crushes and does not move on to the next level 1/5
The App will only repeat on level one which is feeding apples and killing germs. After the heart collection reaches its maximum point, the app crushes and returns to level one again. For a toy that causes this much, the quality should be more stable and at least to function properly. Unless the issues indicated are being fixed, we will probably return the product to the store and suggest our friends to not purchase it either.
Also, just for more information that may be needed, our iPad version is 11.2.1. App crushes after we scan the bear when hearts have been collected to its maximum.
Not working and it’s a teddy bear with wooden toys and app doesn’t work
Things are limited because there is a bug in the app 3/5
By kitty🐶 girl
You can only do a couple things like the X-ray connect the dots and feed Parker. I know now it is a bug but we took it to the apple store yesterday thinking my daughter didn’t know how to work the app. The bear itself is amazing quality the tools are still fun to play and pretend with. We sent an email to seedling and waiting for a response with the welcome letter.
Horrible app; can’t play anything 1/5
We just purchased this product from the Apple store; we went through the setup but the only thing we can do is feed the Bear apples and draw a rocket and see germs through the digestive track. We can’t do any of the other features that come with the product. Additionally, when you see the heart beat through the digestive track, the heart continues to beat while you’re feeding the bear or completing the rocket puzzle. Please help before we return this.
Very disappointing 1/5
Bought this as a gift for my daughter. All the features are hidden you can feed him connect me game an germs. Got an email from developers to add as a new kit still same thing did delete and reinstall same scenario. Plz need help before returning the product !
Lost the letter. Cannot use after app update. 1/5
We set this up for our little one awhile ago. It wasn't much fun so we set it aside. Thought we'd give it another try but App Store asked us to update. After the update, it requested that we start from scratch with the original letter from Parker. Without it, we cannot bypass the setup screen to play. So our Parker bear, X-rays, and accessories are all useless now because we don't have the stupid letter to scan.
App not working 1/5
Got this for my son who loves teddy bears & ipad. This seemed genius. The app does NOT do what YouTube videos say it can. We can only feed him, play connect the dots and blast germs over and over hoping if we do this enough we’ll unlock ability to do other things. Haven’t been able to use xray, medicine or stethoscope. Frustrated kid & parent.
