iPad App Review - The Croods Movie Storybook

~ Posted on Friday, April 5, 2013 at 8:38 AM ~

It was such a nice coincidence that I get to review this storybook app with my kiddos! I was just watching the movie trailer over at IMDB website the other day and my 4 years old Benjamin was laughing along at some of the funny scenes in the trailer and I was thinking, 'Wow! This story managed to capture his attention and got him laughing! This is something!'. Without further ado, here goes my feedback...

* The illustrations is clear and vivid, as for storyline, I can't say for certain whether it is exactly the same from the movie as I haven't got the chance to watch any movies for a long long long time!

* One of the cool thing in this app is you can select the Croods Couture and Survival Gear activities, which allow you to customize the outfits for Guy and Eep, and the final selections of your design will be worn by them throughout the story!

* I personally chuckled along and was amazed at the cute and creative animals in the storybook, something out of ordinary such as piranha keets, bear owl and much more! Of course, I do let my boy know these animals can only be found in this story and they are not real.

* I used the opportunity in this storybook app to teach my boy that we have to stick as a family, to respect our parents and to follow our dreams. We should also be careful when we decide on something and not make a decision on impulse.
