Learning and having fun are our keywords and the reason why we have engaged – together with professionals in the field of apps design (illustrators, animation designers, etc…) – a child neuropsychiatric doctor, a pediatrician and a journalist, all expert on health and well- being.
We have done so to make our book stories balanced and complete. We want them to be enjoyable for children (and the rest of the family), yet giving something more, right from the very first years of life.
Each one of our Joy Tales includes interactive elements on every page of this virtual book and a “narrated” option: kids take part in the story right from the very first panel! There is also a unique “self recording” feature, which enables parents to record the narration with their own voice – for example, when it’s time for bed – and play it back for their children whenever they wish – not just at bedtime – as you do with audiobooks.
Kids and toddlers can ask their parents to read the story directly or, instead, listen to the recording! They can make the story up or add to the fairy tale through games or by reading about the animal characters in it.
Overal, this is a great download at a great price, with 12 tales to get through and plenty to read, hear and do. There is a lot to like here, and I’m sure the kids will love the interactive parts, so I can highly recommend Joy Tales.PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC game reviews, opinions and retro articles
