Disney's Princess Palace Pets
If a child in your home is obsessed with princesses and you've done all the books, movies, princess themed story you can find, a new app offers a new princess angle.
Disney's Princess Palace Pets features eight animals, from Rapunzel's pony to Cinderella's puppy, to Ariel's Kitten. You hear a quick story about how each princess came to own their pet.
The app becomes interactive when you get a chance to bathe the pet, groom the pet, and dress the pet in all the finest jewels. Once you're done, the pet poses with the princess, you can take a picture, and your creation gets framed and hung in virtual gallery.
Disney's Princess Palace Pets is a free app for iOS devices, however some of the pets require a $1.99 in-app purchase.
Room on the Broom Games
If your child is among the legions of fans of the Room on the Broom movie and best selling book, the Room on the Broom Games may be perfect.
There are eight mini games that allow kids to continue on with the story and interact with their favorite characters. Your child can help the witch find her hat, or her wand, or her bow. You can also feed french fries to the dragon.
The descriptions don't do justice to the feel of this one. With several of those classically illustrated layers, there is a nice 3D feel as if you are moving in and around a page from the paper book. There is also some educational value to this one, like the exercise for collecting letters by flying the broom, and eventually seeing what you can spell with them.
Room On The Broom Games is an iOS, Android, and Kindle app for $4.99.
