Frozen: Disney’s Deluxe Storybook app for kids
✔ iPad + iPhone kids app
Just in time for the cinema release of the new Disney Movie “Frozen”, Disney has also released a rich in content deluxe storybook app for kids, which is rather high-priced with $ 6.99. In return however, you get a pretty extensive Play area besides the storybook itself. We’ll introduce you to both now.
Frozen is a universal app for iPad and iPhone and unfortunately only available for iOS devices.
Frozen – the movie trailer
The film is based on the story “The Snow Queen” by Hans Christian Andersen and it’s surely no coincidence that the film is released in winter. Here’s a quick quote of the plot:
In “Frozen,” fearless optimist Anna teams up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven in an epic journey, encouraging Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna’s sister, Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter.
What games and special feature to expect
You can’t really blame Disney’s high-priced apps for at least one reason: They’re never idea-less. Even Frozen has many remarkable features, such as being able to turn the iPad/iPhone upside down, to be able to see the scene in the other sisters point of view.
Several pages can be frozen and also played as a puzzle, which also matches the wintry, cold season. The ice-puzzle is a little challenging than usual picture puzzles, as the single ice pieces can only be placed aside, if they have the correct shape and form. The picture is then slowly revealed one piece at a time.
Another frosty game, offers kids to create their own winter pictures with cool colors or even snowflakes, which can then be seen inside various snow globes.
Frozen – YouTube video trailer
The storybook app by Disney also mixes various media together. The story area can be swiped aside so that only the illustrations are shown, the pictures themselves hide some little animations and sometimes even movie scenes of the film. How this combination works and looks, can be seen in our YouTube trailer, where we’re also checking out the Play section of the app.
Frozen | storybook app rating
Frozen is a very solid storybook app by Disney just in time for the film, nothing more – but nothing less.
(+) a nice foretaste of the upcoming movie
(+) perfect for the upcoming winter season
(-) the alternative view of the story (turning the iPad/iPhone) is a little bit confusing and too fast for kids
