Teddy Tennis works by combining music, pictures and ‘Teddy Bear’ stories into a totally interactive learning adventure that your child will love.

As with all apps – no durability issues. Even in it is deleted for some reason, apps are easy to put back on your iPad.
Tough category! In our current iPad app world we so many flat out incredibly amazing looking apps. With that said – our team could only offer 4 stars – not the full 5!
Bottom line, there is a lot of functionality packed into this app…but…and this can be a problem with other apps that we’ve reviewed…there are in-app purchases. More on that to come…but for now we’ll leave it with a nice amount of functionality included free, to get further along some in-app purchases do need to be made.
We started to touch on it above…the app itself is free. Which is awesome…but, there are in app purchases. Don’t get us wrong – it’s not like they are a lot of money for the purchases, but they cost none the less – and your child (specifically you) could be spending a lot to keep upgrading.
All original concept to help kids learn a love for tennis. No question here – absolutely original!
Apps are always tough to rate – simply because in most cases they are robust games for a small amount of money (or free). Teddy Tennis is no exception…the app is free…and there are some in-app purchases if you like. If you have a child with an interest in tennis – they’ll love it. If your child isn’t in tennis, they may need encouraging or they may take right to it. Either way, for free it is worth trying out – your child may fall in love with a great game!
