My Talking Tom is an online game for children who love animals and will enjoy dressing up their stuffed animals with a voice. This game has many different activities that kids can participate in and the game itself is a fun dress up puzzle. The graphics are very basic and do not look like much, but they are very cute and engaging to kids. The game is very easy to play and there are few levels to it that are challenging enough to keep kids entertained.
Unlike most games on mobiles, My Talking Tom Friends does have some educational values that could help kids develop important social skills, even if the kids are only using the app as a way to pass the time. In fact, the main character in the app is called Tom, and he is actually an alien who landed on earth and is trying to adjust to his new life on earth. After Tom learns some bad habits from another android (the android who caused a big accident on earth), Tom begins to form bad relationships with other humans on his earth and even forms a group of in-game bad guys that want to hurt Tom. Kids can help Tom in overcoming these relationships by giving them feedback on how they are doing. The positive social aspects of My Talking Tom Friends could help kids learn how to develop positive social behaviors.
My Talking Tom Friends was created by the makers of Spooky Mahjong, another popular virtual pet game that uses a lot of the same basic concepts. However, where Spooky Mahjong uses a traditional theme of making ghosts and monsters and Spooky Tom uses a unique story of a talking pet, My Talking Tom Friends takes the idea of two very popular mobile games and combines them into one. The ability to interact with other players is one of the biggest draws of My Talking Tom Friends, as kids can give Tom suggestions about what his next action should be. There is also an optional third-person view, which is useful for showing other players important information about your character. While this may not be as popular as Spooky Mahjong or Poirot: Darkening Tomarta, My Talking Tom Friends might be just as fun for kids as it is for parents.
