The most used apps on our family iPad are definitely the Digital Books from Disney Publishing. J loves to play around with books containing characters he knows and loves. Since we have movie nights almost every weekend, he’s gotten the opportunity to see quite a few family films, and by far, Cars, Toy Story and Monsters Inc are his favorites.
Now, with the movie being rereleased in 3D, Disney Publishing is out with the Monsters, Inc. Storybook Deluxe app. In the app, designed for the Apple OS, you can join Sulley and Mike on their quest to return Boo back to her home, while also trying to keep her out of sight of course. Featuring original character voices and original movie clips, the app allows young readers and monster fans alike to discover hidden “Scare Cards” throughout the story, navigate their way through a Monsters, Incorporated scare simulator training room to collect scream energy in a new game, and even uses kids’ own recorded screaming and roaring abilities to personalize the app.
If you’re like me and are a bit behind in your holiday shopping, here’s a great deal for you. Disney Publishing is offering a special price for all of its Storybook Deluxe apps in iTunes from December 21 through January 2. I have both the Cars 2 and Finding Nemo apps and they are quite a hit in our house. They also make great gifts for friends and family – you can gift the app and send the code via email or print out your order to place within a holiday card.
