This app creates a fun parent-child interaction because it asks the parent to take photos of the child doing active things.
The Bottom Line
This app creates a fun, active activity for a parent and child to explore together.

Overview

This unique app encourages physical play while also teaching early reading skills. It creates a fun parent-child interaction because it asks the parent to take photos of the child doing active things like jumping three times while pointing at the sky or pretending to be a gorilla swinging from a tree branch.

How to Play

After snapping 14 photos of kids doing silly things, the app places the photos inside of a pre-developed story about your child befriending a monkey.
Some of the photos contain superimposed art images like the one where your child appears to be cradling the cartoony monkey in his arms. The app also allows kids to record their name, and uses this recording while reading the story out loud and highlighting words.
You can even email the photo storybook to yourself, grandparents or friends. While you can retake the photos and start again, there is just one story.

All tech products are judged on a five star scale by looking at the following factors: fun, education, ease of use, value, and technical.
