“My preschool-aged daughter had to get used to the slower-paced videos at first. But when she did, I can tell it has already helped her to build some empathy skills as she is understanding why her baby sister can one minute be happy or excited followed by crying and upset within minutes. From observing her play this, I can also see these video scenarios as helping children in the classroom work on social and emotional skills with others also.” - Technology in Special Education
“All in all, it's a nice beginner peek at looking at emotions, what they look like in action and problem solving happy solutions. It's a cozy pretend and sit down with friends to look at a video accompanied by pairing "faces" with "emotions". It also gives a place for a new color scientist to play with color application and mixing. This app is a great jump-start to little one's overall kindness and coloring their world beautiful.” - Smart Apps for Kids

“What we love: the ability to translate learning from an app to real life is fantastic! The bright colors and clarity of the expressions in the emotions section as well as the critical thinking required for both the emotions and mixing of paint colors.” - The iMums

“My 2 year old really enjoys the Emotions game and has learned the names of several of the emotions and has even started using them in other settings. If he sees another child crying, he will point to him and say “He feels sad”. As a mother, I really appreciate apps like iLearn with Poko that find creative ways to teach these crucial social development concepts. I really feel like my kids have benefitted and learned from their time playing this app and I think your families will too.” - The iPhone Mom

Blending colors is learned, but best of all, no messy clean up is needed here! Children will progress smoothly through tasks, learning as they do so, and getting even better acquainted with their favorite iLearn With characters - Poko, Minus, Bibi and Mr. Murphy in iLearn With Poko: Emotions and Colors!” - Cool iPhone iPad apps
“Overall this app offers a great developmental tool for parents to utilize and engage with their child while they learn more about labeling emotions and colors. I recommend watching the short emotional clips with your child. Then talk about a real scenario in their life and help them to name the emotions he or she felt. This can be a great way to take iPad gaming and apply it to your child’s immediate surroundings.” - iGame Mom
“My youngest – in the last weeks of being 2 years old – loves this game. She has even learned how to show me her different faces; a scowl for “mad face” or a big, toothy grin for “happy face”. Emotions, Feelings, and Colors is just another wonderful addition to the iLearn library. ” - iPad Kids
