What is McPlay?

McPlay is an interactive gaming app from McDonald’s that allows users to complete a variety of challenges, including inventing new experiments, creating musical patterns, and drawing.

 

It can be downloaded for free from the App Store and the Google Play Store, and does not offer any in-app purchases. The McPlay app is rated for users of all ages.

 

Once the app is downloaded, users can select which game or mini challenge they would like to begin playing. Many of the games are role-play oriented, and new content is consistently being added to the app, depending on what entertainment McDonald’s currently has in its Happy Meals.

 

To access exclusive games and surprise content, users can use their phone’s camera to scan their happy meal toys and see activities specifically related to their preferred characters.

 

No third-party advertisements can be found within the app, and all features can be accessed for free.

Although the app has generally received positive reviews, some players have complained that new updates do not work properly and prevent them from scanning their Happy Meal toys and adding them to their account.

Is McPlay safe for my kids?

Due to the fact that the app was purposefully created for children and does not contain any mature or inappropriate themes, McPlay is safe for kids.

It must be noted that because the app does not offer the option of in-app purchases, parents do not need to be concerned about children being able to spend money while playing.

As with all video games, it is important to monitor how much time your child spends using this app.

If you find that they are spending an unhealthy amount of time using McPlay, make sure to set boundaries regarding their usage of the app. For children that are old enough, consider having a serious conversation with them about the dangers of forming a tech addiction.

Although the app does not contain any inappropriate themes, it does encourage the consummation of food from McDonald’s, a fast-food chain that is oftentimes heavily criticized for its unhealthy meals.

Make sure to discuss with your child the importance of having a healthy lifestyle and eating well-balanced meals.

Finally, parents should know that while the app is appropriate for children, it does require access to a large amount of personal data, including your phone’s contact list, camera, photos, and storage.

Some parents may not be comfortable with an app-developer having such personal details regarding them and their family.
