If a girl wants to adopt a pet, she would certainly like it be cute and beautiful. Someone she could pamper and decorate with beautiful accessories. That’s why they most often settle with a doll because she doesn’t mind whatever way you style her in. If you dress her in white, she’s happy. If you dress her in pink, she’s even happier. She never complains and that’s why she’s the best friend of your sweet child. On the boys’ side, they want a friend who’d play with them and become a part of every adventure that crops up in their innocent minds. But when your child grows big, he/she finally understands that this doll/toy -truck can’t be their best friend for the whole life. After all, they’re lifeless and while you grow up, they’ll remain the same. So you want a friend who grows up with you and I think we’ve a perfect match for that requirement!


I am talking about the latest iOS app called Fu and Friends that has been developed by Zen Garden Apps. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 6.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.


Fu and Friends is about Fu, an adorable unnatural creature, and your relationship with it. I called it “unnatural” because by any means it doesn’t belong to this planet. But that’s not a complaint but a compliment in fact. After Fu comes out of its egg-nest, it’s like a baby bird without wings. But as you start taking care of it, you feed it and clean it building a relationship which more than a caretaker is of a friend; it grows up into a fireball that’s more active than a fizzy bottle of soda.


Apart from just taking care of and playing with Fu, you also go on fun rides with him. There are many mini-games full of adventure where you get a chance to earn some coins for Fu. These coins can later be exchanged to unlock different accessories for Fu like wings of Dragon, bunny ears, goggles and many other cool dresses. What makes it even fun is when you connect with your friends on Social platforms such as Facebook. Here you can take a look at how your friends are customizing their own Fu and you get more funny, creative and weird inspirations to dress up your own. So it’s a very healthy environment just like an evening walk in a park where you and your friends are enjoying a walk with their pets. What’s more enjoyable is that your pets like each other’s company as well.

So overall, Fu and Friends is a real treat for all kids. If you want a pet, get this one. But if you have one already, don’t worry as it won’t make your puppy jealous!

Fu and Friends is available for free in the App Store.

Pros: cute and adorable Fu; fun mini-games; unlock new accessories for Fu; connect with friends over Facebook and find out their versions of Fu; free.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
