The new interactive storybook app from StoryToys is much more than a new twist on an old favorite. Grimm’s Puss in Boots 3D Interactive Pop-Up Book introduces a concept that ups the cool factor in the world of kids’ apps. Instead of simple 2D animation with responsive characters, this classic story turns into a game or puzzle every few pages. There are 9 pop-up scenes in total, in which you can help Puss in Boots chase away mice, leap over obstacles, and more.
Choose to have the story read in English, French, German, or our favorito, Spanish. The cuento is long and thorough, with a great range of vocabulary and high-quality animation. It’s ideal for preschoolers and kindergarteners, but would be awesome entertainment for older or younger children.
I love that an app like this one can give me a break from reading traditional bedtime stories after an exhausting day, yet still allow me to talk about the story with my son. The pop-up activities make the reading more interesting and, therefore, more educational!
