Dr Panda’s Restaurant Free Overview

Your child is not only the head cook at Dr Panda’s Restaurant, but the host/hostess, decorator, and person responsible for cleaning up the messes customers leave behind as well. This free kids cooking game comes with 3 fun animal guests (Cow, Lamb and Hippopotamus), 3 recipes for kids to learn how to cook (smoothie, scrambled eggs, and soup), and other mini-activities that subtly encourage learning while playing.

The additional mini-activities include cleaning the dishes up after guests leave and the option to add salt or pepper to created dishes once served to the guests.

How To Play Dr Panda’s Restaurant

Each game or activity starts with a fun animal guest arriving at Dr Panda’s Restaurant. To seat them, simply tap on the guest and they will be moved to the dining room, which is another level of the restaurant. A bubble cloud will appear above the guest’s head with their order. Kids need to tap on the food their guest is thinking of and the cooking activity begins. One of the dishes kids get to cook in this free cooking game is scrambled eggs.

The developer, TribePlay, has done a great job of creating an educational game out of a “real life” activity such as cooking to help kids not only work on problem solving and fine motor skills, but also teach them about a necessary life skill – cooking for themselves eventually. For example, to scramble eggs kids have to use a whisk to stir the eggs until a sparkling effect occurs, this lets children know that they have properly stirred the eggs and are ready to move on to the next part of the activity.

In this case, it is to pour oil into the pan prior to pouring the eggs into the pan. Once done, the eggs are poured into the pan, but this recipe is not done just yet. Kids will have to stir the eggs in the pan until they break apart into little pieces forming the scrambled eggs that the guest has ordered. Next, it is time to serve the guest. And once they are done eating, the dishes will need to be removed from the table and placed in the dish bin in the dining room.

Kindle Fire App Review for Dr Panda's Restaurant Free

Even though Dr Panda’s Restaurant Free only has 3 recipes, this free kids cooking game is a huge hit in the Amazon Android App Store. This mobile app is currently a top ranking game and is sure to entertain and keep your little ones busy learning and having fun. However, older kids (say, 7 and up) may become bored with this game a bit quicker due to the limited activities.

Kindle Fire Review

Dr Panda’s Restaurant Free played awesome on my Kindle Fire HDX with sharp, crisp colors and zero lagging as I cooked all the recipes numerous times. The music was a consistent, playful diddy, and the sound effects were spot on. Currently, the Amazon Android App Store is giving you 200 coins for downloading this Dr Panda Game. You can then turn around and use these coins to unlock the complete Dr Panda’s Restaurant Game. What a great value for free!
