My one son loves 2 things a lot. My Ipad and art. Combine the two and you will for sure my son will be occupied for hours. I had the pleasure of reviewing the latest in Disney apps 2 weeks ago. We loved the movie Brave and think it is a fabulous fit.
I have to admit that I hate cleaning up after an art project. I always find random crayons laying around and other art supplies. It is exhausting but I know it is a pass time that is worth tending too. Art makes my son happy so this Iphone app came to the right person. Brave, the Movie, was awarded “Best Animated Film” at the Academy Awards.last night. I love the message Brave sends through out the whole movie. Princess Merida is a strong-willed and independent girl who is not scared to stand up for what she feels is right. The“Brave: Storybook Deluxe” and “Brave Interactive Comic” apps (both rated 4 stars on iTunes!) feature the original characters, storyline, and new activities for kids. My son instantly fell in love.
“Brave: Storybook Deluxe” ($6.99 – for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch)
This app contains a complete retelling of the film for children ages 5 and up, (my son is 6) following Merida through a courageous voyage to defy an age-old tradition and forge her own destiny. The app features beautiful art, character voices, dynamic animation, and surprising interactive elements. We love Disney Digital books. It has a follow along option. It was great for N because he knows enough about reading that he CAN follow along. The pictures roll on and it is almost at times like we are watching a colorful movie. The music, as expected and just like the movie, is beautiful and the sound effects are pretty awesome.
· “Brave Interactive Comic” ($1.99 – for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch)
This app is a more advanced interactive graphic novel for kids ages 7 to 12 that turns this retelling into an enriched animated comic with special effects, enticing music and sounds, as well as clips, sketches, and step-by-step drawing lessons. N loved this one. He loves drawling. (I mentioned that earlier) Her is my attempts at drawing the triplets, Merida’s siblings. I am so talented, I know.The only things we didn’t like about this was that N isnt the best reader yet. He is in Kindergarten so this app was a stretch for him in that extent unless I was playing with him. (which I didn’t mind doing)
