Animals is a simple little iPhone app, aimed squarely at the booming iPhone toddler market.

On the single page there are 20 small - maybe too small for the less dextrous kiddies – icons showing common farm animals and a few more exotic wild creatures.

Tap the icons and the relevant animal noise is emitted. You can tap a few quickly to get a riot of animal noises going, and it’s fun to mix the noise of a roaring lion with those of a cow and dolphin for imaginary beast-fighting.

59p is not a lot of money, but it does seem a bit steep for 20 animal noises.

My two-year-old daughter loves it, but anyone in the same room will soon grow to despise it.

OUR VERDICT

Animals is simple fun for toddlers, and can keep kids amused for up to two minutes. Warning: it's less fun for adults within earshot.
