Now one thing my kids like is the iPad, I mean they bloody love it! So I'm forever on the lookout for apps to keep them entertained, they soon get bored of some apps and they soon get deleted, with the exception of some that have been their since our little iPad mini started its life!
When I heard about notonthehighstreet.com's iPad and iPhone Storytime Sounds app I knew it would be something the monsters would enjoy and maybe we would get to play together...maybe!
The app, which is free, was released
way back in summer, and just this month got its first update adding Halloween sounds to to the list of sound boards available within the app.
The 6 boards, all of which are useable (I hate it when you download an app and you can only use 1 part and need to pay for the rest, god that angers me and usually results in an immediate delete from my devices!), cover every kind of storytime you can imagine:
Why not fly into outer space for a tale of aliens, martians and jet pack fun?
Or jump in your pirate ships for plenty of treasure hunt fun.
Maybe a visit to a lost world with dinosaurs and volcano's is your idea of fun...
Be a heroine or hero in a spell-fuelled fairy tale?
We played hide and seek with a friendly monster (he was easy to find...he had burps!)
And of course the new addition to the Storytime Sounds App...the Halloween Board.
My monsters love all of the boards, notice how I say LOVE not loved, yep this app is still on our iPad a week later, it has been used daily and we have had an array of story's, weird to wonderful, story's that make sense (usually mine) to story's that need a bit of Mummy willpower about them as a 2 year old and 3 year old are making them up and sometimes pressing buttons like maniacs!
Mummy's Thoughts.In all its a great app, the sounds are simple yet effective, easy to understand, I mean they actually make sense! The colours on the app are bright as are the pictures. A really inviting app. And I am happy for it to take a spot on my iPad!
The Monsters Thoughts.
Jenson says the app is ''So So Awesome'' he says this with eyes wide!
Evie just does a happy screech, so, I mean, I assume she enjoys it too!
The app is free to download for everyone you can download it in the iTunes store link at the top of this review (unfortunatly not available on Android devices yet) and is aimed at children aged 3-7...but Evie is 2 and enjoyed it just as much, and I am 30 and loved it too!
