CosmoCamp: The Sweet Adventure is available for iPad and Android devices by Frima Studio. It comes with both English and French translations. There are settings that can be adjusted to suit the age of the user, with a simplified version for toddlers (ages 2-3) and a longer version for preschoolers (ages 4-5). In the toddler version, there are two different reading options - Read To Me, which features a professional narrator and words that are highlighted as they are read, and Read Together, in which a parent does the reading. In the Read Together option, there are great suggestions for parents in the upper right hand corner that will stimulate language development.
Have a look:
In the preschool version, there are three reading options: Read to Me, Read Together, and Read Along. In the Read Along version, it is possible to make an audio recording of parts of the story that can be played back.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked-
The enjoyment factor for kids is definitely there in CosmoCamp: The Sweet Adventure. It has a cute, age appropriate story that taps into a child’s imagination and shows the characters helping and encouraging one another. The animations are simple to use and they give the characters added personality. Just a note- activating the animations interferes with the narration in the Read to Me setting, so it’s best to have your child wait until after the narrator has finished reading that page to check them out.
Overall, CosmoCamp: The Sweet Adventure meets our expectations for story content, animation, and design. It exceeds our expectations for its parental support and suggestions. Since CosmoCamp is a series of story apps and games, parents have the ability to select other titles in the series if their children get “hooked.” That way they can enjoy more adventures in the cosmocamper with Migo and Pandy.
