I don’t know why I didn’t think I was going to like this, when in fact I really did. There are 6 Chapters that you can download for children age 2-6 (Shape, Size and Colour, The World Outside, Making things, Rhythm and Dance, Songs and Rhymes and Story Time). I absolutely love the music in the intro, the characters are gorgeous and what I like most of all is that there are over a 100 printable activities.
You follow the 3 characters Buddy Boo the bear, Eric the raccoon and Willow the owl through the Land Of Me. At each stop, children have the opportunity to choose elements of the adventure. My favourite is Anthony the Mexican Anteater in the desert, he’s a scream. We made a castle out of jelly in the mud!
There’s also the opportunity to explore Literacy, with a place to add your own text, there’s also information about the creatures and places you visit and if you watch carefully, in the background, you may see the other characters getting up to all sorts.
The only negatives I found were that it takes quite awhile to download. So, make sure you do this before you sit the kids in front of the PC. Secondly, as I’m a user of iTunes and rarely pay more than .59p for kid’s apps, I thought that £6.95 per chapter may be a bit dear. However, you can download the first chapter for free from here.
Plus, this weekend they are offering a whopping £10 off. All you need to do is type ‘happy’ into the discount code panel at checkout.
Disclosure: We received all 6 chapters in return for this review
