Nampa Party by Nampa Design is a fun party themed app which includes eight mini games along with music and the ever present disco ball. You can go into the photobooth dress, up and take a fun selfie; make a sandwich using your favorite items including vegetables, condiments and meat; create your favorite smoothie in the blender; play some music by putting your favorite instrument or animal on the musical notes to create your own rhythm and more! This app is fun for toddlers and preschoolers – as well as older kids who just want to have fun! Read our review of Nampa Holiday published earlier this year.
Create your own music. In this mini game you are presented with a music line where you can drag the characters from the app as well as a variety of musical instruments including a drum, maraca, trumpet or guitar to the music line. You can arrange the objects and then play your tune!
Selfie Photo Booth A party isn’t complete without photos! Visit the dress up closet to pick your favorite dress up accompaniments which include jewelry, glasses and accessories before going in the selfie booth to have a string of photos taken. Watch out for the fun balloon artist!
Paint and Design: A party isn’t complete without paint and design or coloring! Simply look at the sheet, pick your favorite color and drag it over to the photo. It is filled in neatly using a paint brush tip which makes coloring fun and frustration free. No scribbles and no mess!
Create the Party Cake: It’s time to create and bake the party cake. First you choose the wrapper for your cake and then you pick the mix. The cow is the helper in this mini game and it’s time to bake! After baking you can decorate with frosting and sprinkles! After your creation is made, then it’s time to add fruit, individual items like eyes and more. Once you are done the chef enjoys their creation!
Create your own hamburger: In this mini game you choose your hamburger and fun toppings which range from tomato and green pepper to cheese, onions and cucumbers. Don’t forget to top it with a bun!
Stack the Presents: Enter in and stack the presents in a tower – see how many you can stack before it topples! Don’t forget to watch for the balloon artist!
Create your own Smoothie: It’s time to blend up the party drinks. Choose from a variety of fruits, vegetables and even pizza to create your fun party drink. When done you can share it with the other characters and make more! My son enjoyed making pineapple, raspberry, candy cane smoothies it was fun to see all the great color creations. After making simply touch the blender to get a drink.
Decorate the Party Table: Tap on your friends to set the party table complete with plates, cups, bowls and snacks! Don’t forget the fun decorations as well which include party hats, balloons, decorations for the wall and of course birthday cake! Turn off the light and the disco ball comes out to play!
My son loved this app. He can be a bit shy at parties so we talked about how playing this app was like going to a birthday party. He enjoyed making his own food (his way no rules!) along with the paint and design and taking selfies. We even took a few of our own silly selfies with my iPhone after.
In terms of improvements – it would be nice if there was a way to take the objects that kids create and somehow integrate them into the app. Perhaps this could be done by making the coloring page something kids could put on the wall during the party or allowing them to choose the color pitcher with the drinks which is similar to what was created during the smoothie making.
Overall, this is a fun app aimed at toddlers and preschoolers. It’s simple enough that kids don’t get frustrated but doesn’t have so many activities that kids can get overwhelmed. My toddler loved that there were no rules and that he could make things the way he wanted to. There are no external links, no IAP or advertising contained within the app.
