iPad App Review - Tilly Witch

~ Posted on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 6:29 AM ~

When I saw the press release of this app, I immediately requested to review it as my 3.5 years old boy is into skeleton and spooky stuff at the moment, although I was a bit apprehensive initially due to the witch spooky face but decided to go with it after seeing the witch standing on a skateboard (my boy likes seeing skateboard hahaha)! Anyway, my review as below...

One day, she tries playing at being happy, reasoning that children use Halloween to play at being evil witches. Unfortunately for her, she is unable to stop being happy once she begins. Tilly Witch then goes out on a quest to cure herself of her happiness. Tilly the Witch is a part of the Auracle line from Auryn Inc. and is based on Don Freeman’s book by the same name."

* It is engaging and interactive and I love the navigation features (Home button at top right corner and Pages at bottom left corner)

* The illustrations are cute and simple and colorful too.

* To be honest, I was rooting for Tilly to remain a happy witch and was sad when she became a bad and angry witch in the end.

* As for the concept of Halloween, we don't celebrate that in our family but I don't think that should be a stopping point or something that I should not be exposing to my child, at least I want him to know there is such celebration in other place and there is nothing to be afraid of.
