Colour me happy ever after | discovering colours with an iPad storybook app for children
Colour me happy ever after is a somewhat strange but beautiful kids app, with which kids can learn to understand colours.
We are always amazed as to how storybook app developers come up with new and great ideas in this type of category, especially with things you haven’t yet seen in other apps before:
In this kids app, all pages are black and white at first and therefore anything but colourful…
Alex, the little boy doesn’t find it easy to decide, which colour he likes the most.
He finds many great items and objects as examples for each colour, of what he likes, for maybe finding it easier to decide his favourite colour. How are you supposed to decide when there are so many nice things?
His parents and his dog cat (yes, his dog is called cat) accompany him through the world of colours, through which all pages slowly gain colour bit by bit.
Kids can take over this great activity and colour each page in themselves. Each colour has been given a beautiful illustrated page, where kids can listen to the narrated story.
Similar to the kids storybook app “Alice’s adventures in Wonderland” which is from the same publisher, this app is available in many other languages, therefore a multilingual app for kids. 11 languages including English, are given. This is pretty awesome, the languages are: German, English, French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Basque, Catalan, Galician and Portuguese.
The illustrations and overall design really works out nicely in all languages. Kids can intensely deal with the world of colours, whilst being playfully entertained. Kids can listen or read themselves, the story is very thorough and is also a different story compared to the ordinary fairy tales, which is very nice. They can also play a little Memory game after reading, which is nicely equipped and can therefore compete with other memo-apps. Another bonus has to be the three colour-in pages, even if we do find this a little skint, as we’d like to have a few more.
There are quite a few apps for kids out there, which are all about learning colours, but not yet has there been a storybook app, which teaches colours in such a nice way.
Not only with the educational content but also for the storybook itself, this app has been produced with a lot of effort and profession.
All in all, this app hits our taste buds and kids will love the colouring aspect and the story too.
