My Little Pony - A Canterlot Wedding by Egmont Kids Media Digital A/S is a magical tale from the land of Equestria. Help Princess Celestia and the other ponies create the perfect wedding day. Swipe through the early pages as you learn what each pony will be responsible for and look for a few small, hidden interactions along the way, like butterflies flying toward your finger. Not every page has interactive components.
High quality graphics, and familiar characters fill the pages of the story. After learning the back story, help each pony prepare for the big day. Swipe the pink cord downward to enter the interactive portion. Players help Applejack decorate the wedding cake, Rarity design the perfect wedding dress, Fluttershy compose a woodland tune, Rainbow Dash create a Sonic Rainboom, and Pinkie Pie choose the most beautiful flowers. At the end, view the wedding ceremony with all of your personal touches included.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked
The best part of this app is the nostalgia, in my case, and the connection between a familiar hands on toy and the digital world. The story book will be engaging for young children who love the My Little Pony brand. The story is very well animated and the graphics are nicely done. While the initial story has little interaction, helping each pony at the end gives users a few easy to manipulate activities. With the freedom to change within the mini-game as many times as you want, the game has good replay value for young children. I also enjoyed the seamless way that each of the personalized aspects was incorporated in the wedding scene. It was fun to see your choices displayed as part of the story.
Overall, My Little Pony - A Canterlot Wedding is a good app for children aged 2-6 who enjoy playing with My Little Ponies. Without too many interactions and simple games, older children may lose interest in this app quickly. Those looking to connect real world play with the digital world will appreciate this game for sticking to the basics and creating a brand worthy app.
