My Very Hungry Caterpillar AR application logo

For the first time, The Very Hungry Caterpillar is brought to life in the real world, with a stunning AUGMENTED REALITY experience.

It’s almost 50 years since Eric Carle introduced his much-loved character The Very Hungry Caterpillar to the world.

Now with Apple ARKit, the Very Hungry Caterpillar comes to life wherever you are. With Augmented Reality you can see the caterpillar and you can still see the world around you. Watch him appear in your living room, on your kitchen table, in your garden, or anywhere you want to play with him.

Hatch him from an egg, feed him tasty fruit. My Very Hungry Caterpillar will captivate you as he crawls around your environment.
Help him explore your world, or take a peek into his colorful toy box. There are lots of surprises to discover. Pop floating bubbles and watch out for the wind-up Grouchy Ladybug!
And when My Very Hungry Caterpillar gets sleepy, just tuck him into his bed. Each time you wake him up, it’s time for an exciting new day.

As he eats more, My Very Hungry Caterpillar grows bigger and bigger, until he changes into a beautiful butterfly, and flies up into the sky. And next time you play a new egg appears and the adventure begins again.

Children are playing in the digital world but they are are still connected to the real world.

It's a world of beauty and color you'll return to again and again.

My Very Hungry Caterpillar AR Reviews


Wish there was a no AR option  Kalielle  3 star

You have to hold the camera pointed down at a flat surface for it to work. For an iPad that means holding it up in the air while you play and it's too heavy to do that comfortably for long. Perhaps it works better on a phone.


Great app for 6 year old  Labyrinth44  5 star

I am a six year old and I love your app.

“This game is awesome! I give it 5 stars! This game is great. I think all children should download this game.” -Reviewer, age 5 1/2


I love the caterpillar  Damagapple  5 star

I love this game. It is so cute. I like how the caterpillar plays with the ball it makes me smile. It is so funny. I wish you could add mini adventures or games and also adding some background music and voice to the caterpillar. This game has so much potential. I like it but I would like to see new background , themes stories with missions to achieve. Yeah I even would like to be able to talk to my baby caterpillar. ❤️❤️❤️❤️


Very fun and cute app with continuous updates  HuaTham  5 star

My original review 🐛🍎 may have been a little too harsh (although my kid really got through the entire app in a very short time in the first version’s release), but since then the app has been updated with new and free contents 💧🌲❄️ that expand this AR world. Seeing the efforts put into the app, I’d like to change my review to 5 stars. Highly recommended.


Please update!!  Michguy75  1 star

I agree with others, can’t get past the low light message no matter what. You’ve been saying for weeks there’s an update coming to fix this. But in the meantime, we’ve wasted $3.99.


Nice when it works...  HooniverseJeff  2 star

It seems even under the midday sun, there’s apparently not enough light for it to work properly. Worked fine when I first got it, but now it never works.


This update fixes the “needs more light” bug  Unhappyuserstill  5 star

iPhone 8 works again with this app. It’s fun and my young son loves it, not a deep game but for what it is, it’s done really well.


Problems  Cybnext  1 star

All I get is the message that there isn't enough light. Turned on lights, went outside... Nothing. Also the camera appears to be capturing a very muddy looking image. This is on an 8+

Coffee Talk

Not working  Coffee Talk  1 star

I agree with other reviewers. I have an IPhone 8 and this isn’t working. It is saying it’s not bright enough but it is 100 plus outside and this appears muddy and dark. Clearly something is broken and I just wasted 3.00.

does nothing at all

My very hungry caterpillar  Racing_mind  5 star

This app has been a great fun app


Works good when works  Ruinweaver  4 star

The developers need to inform people to tap the screen to get past the dots. When the egg hatches this is an awesome app


I suppose it’s a good idea..  nunnsii_92  1 star

But poor execution. The only thing that appears are a bunch of coloured discs. And most of the time they don’t even stay on the screen. Not worth the money at all.


Doesn’t do anything  Lightning!72!  1 star

It just makes coloured dots on your screen and nothing else. Waste of money, and also takes over the App Store so you can’t use App Store without the story doing a voice over.


SCAM!!!!!  dsupreme2011  1 star

BEWARE!!! When you purchase this app it only has circular discs that demonstrate very badly, an AR illusion!! You must then buy an ‘in-purchase’ add on for €6.99 to get the caterpillar!! So €3+ for the pleasure of downloading a demo app then further cost to use the app as advertised!! Don’t buy it!! Or am I missing something here!! Alan.
