Nosy Crow: UK Storybook App Publisher re-invents the Three Little Pigs
Kids from all time simply love the story and now with the iPad, this classic tales takes on a new life. Kid’s apps developers have been creative in developing amazing storybook apps for our children. Each app is different and unique. There are the ones we like for the presentation, the illustrations, the interactivity, the narration… and the one we like for their originality.
We just reviewed, The Three Little pigs from Nosy Crow. It might be Nosy Crow s first app, but believe me it is one of the best modern version of The Three Little Pigs. It is original, modern, fun, entertaining and very interactive. Simply one these apps that you need to have, a storybook app that is fun, educational and engages children on many different levels.
Read it and discover all the interaction available and you will find out a completely new version of this classic tale. Although the story line is still the same, The Three Little Pigs still leave their house, they still build a house and the big bad wolf is still "puffing and huffing" to get them; it is fresh, new and up to date; the bad wolf is not running any more but driving a van, it is not just 3 little pigs but brothers and sisters and you even get a chance to see papa pig!
The Three Little Pigs from Nosy Crow offers great illustration and brilliant interactivity that will delight the young ones as well as the older ones. A great storybook app to share with your kids.
What we really like in this modern adaptation of the classic tales is;
The illustration and interactivity.
- The family dialogue, follow the little blue dot, and you have a full interactive dialogue.
- Taking part and helping the little pigs build their house, touch the stack of hay, wood or bricks; it will flip over and lay down the house foundation. Touch another stack and the second part of the house is done. Keep on going and kids will be happy to finish the house.
- Actively help the wolf blow the houses, blow in the microphone and the wolf will start blowing. A great feature, the kids just loved to blow in the microphone, it was hilarious!
- High quality animation, professional narration and original music. Kids really enjoyed the change of perspective that reveals hidden object when tilting the iPad, and had so much fun flipping the wolf’s van and seeing the screen trembling!
There are just so many plus points with this app; the best is for you to give it a try. Here at Fun Educational Apps, we all loved it and are really looking forward to see more apps from Nosy Crow.
Please note that some may think that it is a bit expensive for an app. 4.99£ is probably above most storybook app, but it is well worth the investment. Simply walk in a book store, will you really be able to buy a good kid book for less than 5.00£?
