Summer is a great time for many things, for example, ice cream, a trip to the beach, and new experiences. In Dr. Panda's Ice Cream Truck, you can have all these things and more. Suitable for ages 5 and under, the mobile app puts kids in charge of serving up mouthwatering sundaes to friendly animal patrons at the beach.
Create Your Own Ice Cream Flavors
Summer is here, and Dr. Panda's Ice Cream Truck is getting ready for a busy day. The first task for kids, is to whip up as many as 8 ice cream flavors. They choose from an array of basic flavors, add sweets or fruits, then combine all the ingredients together in the mixer. The resulting concoction is then added to one of the containers to serve customers.
When at least one of the containers is filled, kids can start creating sundaes for the customers. They simply scoop up the flavors they want and drop it into the ice cream cone, then add various sauces, toppings, and garnish. There really aren't any special requirements for each customer, and kids decide for themselves how much (or how little) ice cream and toppings to serve.
To serve the completed sundae, kids ring the bell on the top left of the screen. Even though each customer has their own unique reactions to what kids make, they will always wolf down what is presented to them. Once the sundae is finished, the customer pays and it's off to serve the next customer in line.

Things I Like
In Dr. Panda's Ice Cream Truck, kids can create their own fantastic flavors by combing various ingredients. The process is not only easy but also interesting to watch. When the ice cream balls and toppings are mixed together, they create these beautiful swirls of color.
A really fun feature is how the sky changes color based on the choice of ice cream and toppings. For example, it turns yellow when you scoop up a flavor that is predominantly yellow. You can also make treats fall from the sky by adding sprinkles, chocolate swirls, and other shakeable toppings.
When preparing the ice cream, keep in mind that only 8 flavors can be sold at a time. Once a container has been filled, you have to sell all the ice cream before you can switch to a new flavor. This adds a touch of realism to the gameplay. If you look closely, you can watch the container get slowly emptied as you scoop out more and more ice cream.
If just the word "ice cream" gets your kids into a frenzy, you should check out Dr. Panda's Ice Cream Truck. This imaginative role-playing app makes serving up frozen treats a lot of fun, plus it gives kids a glimpse into the process of running a business. Overall, it's a must-have for ice cream lovers and fans of Dr. Panda alike.
