Fairy Tales 3D Interactive Pop-Up Books App | Review + Info on a Holiday Special Bonus

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I received monetary compensation for my time reviewing this app, however all opinions are my own and were not influenced.


Do you have a child that loves being read to, or loves to read themselves? My daughter has always enjoyed and loved me reading books to her and since she is in first grade this year she really is developing her own reading skills, increasing her love for reading. Just like most children, she also has favorite books to read which usually include princesses. I was recently introduced to a new children's app called "Fairy Tales", which has really neat 3D interactive pop-up books of classical fairy tales. When I first learned of this new app, I knew that my daughter was going to fall in love with the app and I course was correct.


"Fairy Tales" offers 8 classical fairy tales, with more coming soon!

•  The Princess and the Pea - FREE
•  Cinderella
•  Goldilocks and the three bears
•  Mother Snow
•  The Enormous Turnip
•  The Three Little Pigs
•  The Three Spinners
•  The Wolf and the Seven Little Kids


Features:

•  $7 Holiday gift.
•  Christmas themed.
•  Narrated by 8 professional actors
•  Interactive 3D pop-up scenes
•  Bonus game Star Dust!


Downloading the app was very simple, it comes available in both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. I decided to download this app on my tablet through the Google Play Store. Once it was loaded, I was then able to choose 4 stories to download for free with my free available credit that comes for each new user. My daughter decided actually, and she chose The Princess and the Pea, Cinderella, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and The Three Spinners.


With each story, you can decide if you want the story read to you, or if you want to read the story yourself. It's easy to flip the pages and throughout each story are a few 3D-Pop scenes/pages. I have to say, these pop-up pages are so neat and my daughter just loves them! They are interactive, so you can actually click on different items within the page and it all goes along with the storyline. 

There are also fun mini games; my daughter loves the maze in cinderella where she has to help her find the keys to unlock the doors/gates. These stories are very interactive so your child is not just sitting there listening to a story, but they are being involved in the story which is great!

Another feature I love are all of the voices within the stories-- there are 8 total professional actors narrating the stories. I like that there are more than one voice in each story for the characters involved...it makes the story come to life even more, and the actors do a great job!

See this App in action!


Overall, I think this is a great app for children to have, what child wouldn't love an interactive storybook about classical stories they know and love? My daughter absolutely loves cuddling up beside me and having her stories read to her, she honestly can't get enough of it. This app is free to download and you do get a few stories free, but I think for everything you get out of the stories the prices to buy the additional stories are really a great price! Fairy Tales does have a special going on right now, so you do have to act fast to get 4 free stories to download like I did! 

Any user who will download the app before Monday 29th will get the special $7 bonus!


To download this free app, head on over to the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store today!

So Much Fun with the Little Luna- Big Talent Kid's App | Review

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I received monetary compensation for my time reviewing this app, however all opinions are my own and were not influenced.


I am always looking for fun and educational learning apps for my children to play. You know, to help keep them busy while mom is cooking, or while we are shopping and they are bored or during that car ride that is just too long they can't handle it. I like to whip out my phone or tablet and say here "play, learn and have fun". I recently learned about about a fun new kid's app called Little Luna- Big Talent and I'm excited to tell you all about it-- mostly because my kids think it's the funniest app ever; it has fun games that make them giggle. Also because it promotes rhythm, coordination and concentration, and teaches my kids to pursue their special talent, even if it sets them apart from others.


Little Luna and her family are bombardier beetles who all share a special talent: Tooting! That word right there should be your first clue why my kids giggle while playing this app. Bombardier beetles expel gas as a defense mechanism, and Little Luna’s dad and brothers, Theo, Fritz, and Alex, are experts! First of all, I have to say, I'm glad that little miss Luna says the word "toot" and not the f-word...you know, f a r t. We don't say that word in our family ha ha, we say toot so that actually made me and my 6 year old daughter smile at each other.


Your little one can help Little Luna bring her family and friends together for a jam session. Along the way, your kids will explore her garden world and learn about Little Luna’s own special talent—she makes beautiful shadow puppets of animals, bugs, and reptiles using her four hands! My son especially loves the "guess shadow puppets" game because it's easier for him to do since he's 2 1/2. 


 Features of Little Luna include:

- Three games: guess shadow puppets, practice target tooting, match musical melodies
- Exciting tasks: bake a lice cake, do yoga with Yolanda, and plant and water a flower bed
- Easy to navigate, smooth-running interface
- Beautifully designed color scheme and delightful music to match
- Activities and mini games to delight and entertain kids
- Set a time limit: Parents decide how long their child can use the app 
- Designed for toddlers and elementary school aged children
- Narration available in English, Mandarin Chinese, and German
- No in-app purchases
- Protected parental controls



View this short trailer to see Little Luna!
 

My daughter loves doing the yoga with Luna's mom...she actually stands up and balances on one foot and will do it over and over again. She also loves playing the target tooting practice with Luna's dad. She literally will sit there practicing her target and aiming and giggle away...it's actually really funny to watch her play! While this app can entertain my daughter for quite some time, I as a parent like that I have ultimate control on how long she can play, and will set time limits for her. Yes, she does get bummed when her time is up, but "there's always next time" I tell her! 

Also, a lot of app's these days have in-app purchase ability and this app does NOT! Thank goodness, seriously! Overall, I have to say that this app has been fun for my daughter and it was definitely a smart choice downloading it. It's available on iTunes for $2.99 which I think is a great price considering all it offers. It will become available on android soon, so keep on the look out!


Head on over to iTunes to purchase this fun app for a low price of $2.99!

Dyson Ball Toy Vacuum Cleaner by Casdon Toys | Review

Disclosure: I received the following item mentioned in this post at no cost to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own and were not influenced.


Do you have a little one at home that loves to help you clean? I know most kids (once they get to a certain age) really do not like to help clean, but I decided to make helping me clean a fun chore from an early age for both of my kids. They actually beg to help me clean, whether it's to clean the windows, wipe down the counters, vacuum or even help fold laundry. 

My son in particular is obsessed with me vacuuming... I'm not exaggerating either. He's 2 1/2 and since he was 1 years old he calls are vacuum "bee". I think because it makes a constant noise and that's just the name he came up with. When he's having a bad day or a melt down, I'll just get out our vacuum and start vacuuming and he'll be the happiest kid on the block-- especially when I let him push it around. We went as far as putting a vacuum on his 2nd birthday cake...yeah the bakery probably thought we were crazy!! haha...take a look...

He absolutely loved it!!

So when I was recently asked to review a dyson ball Vacuum Cleaner replica toy from Casdon Toys, I knew I had to say yes and that this was going to be THE gift for my son this Christmas! 


When our new toy dyson ball vacuum arrived, we were so happy to see how much it is like the real dyson ball vacuum cleaner-- just a mini toy one for kids! It was so simple to put together, all you do is snap on the handle. I did have to have my husband do this part, I couldn't get enough force to push it on right, but in the end we got it on and we couldn't of asked for a quicker set-up!

Features:
  • Realistic role play for exploring imagination and developing social skills 
  • Replica design with bright colours for visual stimulation 
  • Play encourages the development of hand-to-eye co-ordination
  • Working suction and cyclone action for understanding cause and effect 
  • Maneuverability of toy develops problem solving and motor skills 
  • Independent play encourages exploration and discovery 
  • True to life sounds for added realism and aural stimulation

This toy is recommended for ages 3-9 and my daughter is 6 years old-- she is leaning in the photo below. My daughter loves that the little foam pieces inside the dyson actually swish and swoosh around in the vacuum and that it makes realistic noises. It's very fun to push around and play with, especially since it's a dyson it moves and turns around easily making it more fun to vacuum!


Overall, we think this dyson ball vacuum cleaner toy replica is super fun and we can't wait to see our son's face when he opens up his present on Christmas morning! We know he is going to love it and play with it for years and years! We definitely recommend it-- it's sturdy and made well. Oh, it does take 4 C-sized batteries which are not included, so make sure you have some on hand when you order this toy vacuum!
