Once again, Disney has come up with a new way to excite kids! One of their most beloved animated movies, Toy Story, is now the theme of an app that will keep your kids busy for hours. Toy Story: Story Theater allows kids to use characters from the movie (Buzz, Woody, Jessie, and more) and various settings and props to “direct” their own short films. The possibilities are endless.
First, practice placing characters and recording scenes using the Free Play option. Then, once you’re ready for your directing debut, go on to Story Play to get started on the real thing.
Save as many recorded stories as you want, and then choose the best one to submit to Disney’s Story Theater Fest contest. The creator of the video with the most votes will win a trip to Disneyland Resort and be honored at the D23 Expo in August. To ensure that your family has a chance to win this fabulous prize, be sure to submit entries to the Disney Learning Facebook page by June 23rd.
Bilingual kids can have even more fun with this app by recording stories in whichever language they please. Disney will accept story submissions in both English and Spanish.
