When Cherry was a baby she smashed the screen on my iPhone by chucking it on the floor. I became a bit protective of it after that and didn’t let her touch it.
She is nearly three now though and there are benefits to her using my iPad / iPhone. They can come in really handy when we are out with other adults and she gets bored. Watching Noddy on YouTube kept her entertained through many meals out this Summer.
This week we were also introduced to audio books when asked to review the new i-fairytale by Blue Ocean Studios.
The audio book app tells the classic Grimm’s story – The Frog Prince.
The book is recommended for children between the ages of 6-10 but I let Cherry read a little bit with me after I checked it first.
You press play on each page and a man reads the words in an English accent, then the characters act out parts in an American accent.
The animations are good, the only thing I would say is that the princess has ridiculously huge eyes which can look a little bit freaky.
Watching this did actually refresh my memory of the original book which I had forgotten all about. If you haven’t heard of it then it’s about a frog who has to sleep in a princess’s bed for three nights to unlock the spell that was cast on him and be turned back into a prince again. Pretty weird but I guess no different to sleeping beauty or any of the other fairy tales!
Cherry thought it was brilliant though and I will definitely be downloading some more audio books for us to read together.
