Little Red Riding Hood by Nosy Crow | extensive Storybook app for kids
iPad & iPhone app | Storybook app for kids ages 3-7 years
Nosy Crow has published a very extensive and awesome premium Fairytale app, which has way more to offer than just the story itself.
Why we want to introduce you to this rather pricey app, will be explained thoroughly in this app review. This scrumptious storybook app has many various activities and surprises for kids to discover, read and see for yourself.
Premium storybook app with a slight 3D effect
Just like the other two fairytale story apps by Nosy Crow “Cinderella” and “The Three Little Pigs”, Little Red Riding Hood belongs to one of the most elaborate storybook app productions. This is not only visible in the numerous amounts of mini-games, but also in the abundance of animations, the lavish scoring and not least, the subtle 3D landscape effects. The two previous apps have even been marketed as 3D picturebook apps for quite a while – meanwhile you won’t find the this description in the title anymore, but a 3D effect without glasses is still noticeable, as the illustrations build on several levels. If you tilt your iPad or iPhone a little, you will clearly see this effect.
Particularly fun and interactive storybook app
In the Little Red Riding Hood app, the line between storybook and game is a little blurry. Without the active assistance of the children, there wouldn’t be much going on though, even if an alternative listening mode is offered. Even the Dialogs of the freely movable characters in this story will only continue whilst tapping on the display. The text is presented in speech bubbles and of course narrated by professional narrators.
There are also many loose objects in various scenes and mini games, which can be collected after all, Little Red Riding Hood is carrying a basket for her Grandmother. We’re really keen on the modern interpretation of this fairytale, because Little Red Riding Hood is smart enough to not step into the nasty wolf’s trap and get eaten by him during the final showdown. Instead, she defends herself successfully with the use of all the different utensils from her basket.
Before the new plot can begin, little red riding hood needs to decide which path she should go. Depending on the choice of the children, she will meet many different forest dwellers, with whom she can play various funny mini games with and as a gift, she’ll receive some useful items. There are generally a lot more friendly animals to be met in this rather dark forest of this story app, than just the nasty wolf. There is e.g. a clumsy moose, a friendly honey-bear, a cute frog and the nosy squirrel and a helpful spider.
This game also uses special forms of controls. Therefore the iPad/iPhone needs to be tilted whilst filling up the honey pot, or at other times you need to blow into the microphone to play the flute. Those elements surely contribute their part to ensure that this app: Little Red Riding Hood, is and stays very special.
