iPad App: Nosy Crow’s Cinderella Is Magical
If you have an iPad and you have kids, then you need to listen up. If you have kids and no iPad, then go get one and come back.
Nosy Crow’s ingenious iPad app tells the classic story of Cinderella through the medium of fully interactive animation. This app is simply a work of art and the sheer effort that was directed into its creation can simply not be described. You will have to invest the $8 download fee and discover the magic for yourself. Our 3 and 5-year-olds, and me, have been mesmerized with this electronic book.
We have been in fits of giggles and consistently surprised throughout this classic tale. The story is self administered and can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour to complete, depending on the level of interaction selected. The beautifully created characters will talk to you and can be moved around the colorful and inspiring backgrounds of each story page. Most pages have a plethora of interaction, such as helping Cinderella to clean up by putting the dining plates back on the shelves.
The story leads into the garden where Cinderella and the fairly god mother need the reader to find the pumpkin to transform into the carriage to whisk her to the ball. I don’t want to reveal too many of the surprises that lay in store, but the utilization of the iPads built in camera to reveal your child’s face on the mirrors on the wall is simply brilliant. We played this story over and over, discovering something new each time.
It’s not very often that we get this excited about the products we review, but this is sure the pinnacle of the mogul baby must haves, when considering the quality, value and instant accessibility to everyone. It is impossible to be disappointed with this masterpiece.
